Brianna Chaves has worked on both sides of the lens. A model and actress with several movie and television credits to her name, Chaves is clearly a creative—her photos are just another way for her to put her artistic side to good use. She snaps pictures of families, expectant moms, and newborns, as well as portraits for subjects of all ages.
Rather than capture posed shots, D.C. Photography Studios' shutterbug duo, Scott and Sara, immortalizes spontaneous, candid moments during on-location shoots. With their blend of expertise in photojournalism and fine-art photography, the pair frames portraiture, families, children, and engaged couples with a skillful eye for artistic, visual storytelling. Their main focus, however, remains weddings, where they shoot brief group sessions that leave time for newlyweds to spend on their portraits, socializing with guests, or practicing bouquet tosses by hurtling flower girls across the dance floor. After the sessions, Scott and Sara amass the pictures into a personalized, password-protected online proof gallery from which patrons can select their favorite shots to preserve as various-sized prints or high-resolution digital files.
At Santa at River Park, kids can capture their first time meeting Santa with real, photographic evidence, without the hassle of long mall lines. After pulling into conveniently located parking, families arrive at the rustic, cozy log cabin for private, professional shoots, which yield high-definition photos of jolly old St. Nick—a guaranteed member of The Fraternal Order of Real Bearded Santas. Other kids can also come and wish for presents in the winter wonderland atmosphere, which features magic snowballs, crafts and shops, a gift-wrapping center, and elves.
Photographer Tracy Cornejo believes that even the significant moments in life can seem fleeting—unless there’s a camera there and someone that knows how to use it.

She also extends her skills to modeling and corporate headshots, as well as landscape and travel photography.
After working at Disneyland as part of the Disney College Program, Dreams Come True Entertainment’s owner Leeanna French couldn’t put her princess obsession to rest. Rather than spending her life waiting for a prince or book deal to come, she flipped this experience into motivation to start her own business. Today, she and her staff of trained dancers add a professional flair to parties with the arrival of costumed characters ranging from evil queens to Jedis, all of whom have been classically trained to portray authentic accents.
