Marvelous Light Studios staff specializes in capturing more than what meets the eye—love and hope, for example, during an engagement session set in a park, or the sense of accomplishment radiating from a senior portrait. Even the titles of the studio's photo packages imply that photography can go beyond the visual. Family photo shoots are part of "The Heritage" sessions, whereas "The Legacy" package showcases an individual's unique character and talents.
Having been behind the lens for more than 28 years, Marvelous Light Studio's photographers have mastered the art of both indoor and outdoor photography. Services range from capturing and editing actor's headshots in the studio to documenting weddings and other parties in a photojournalistic style. This approach encourages natural candid moments and brings emotion to the final, retouched print. The studio can also photograph children, expectant mothers, and couples in their prom attire, who can use the pictures as a better keepsake than a clown-corsage that sprays water at their date.

Terry Bratton's photography business had an unassuming start in 1988: as a college student, he snapped Polaroids of his classmates, charging them $1 to take them home. Since then, Bratton has certainly added more skills to his portfolio. He specializes in event and portrait photography and counts authors, models, fashion and jewelry designers, and choreographers among his many clients.
Just as couples overlook nothing while planning a wedding, so Tasley Taylor overlooks nothing while photographing it. Throughout wedding days, Tasley snaps candid and posed photos of everything from the bridal party to flower arrangements and the newlyweds' first dance. After retouching and editing her strongest images, she preserves them with myriad products, including storybooks and DVDs loaded with high-resolution images. Tasley applies that same eye for detail to her other sessions, be they family portraits, event photography, or headshots.
