Kesha Lambert Photography and the AboutFace Makeup Artist Network teamed up to create Lash to Lens, a one-stop shop for customized portraiture and modern lifestyle photography. Published in the New York Times, Boston Herald, and OK! magazine, Kesha Lambert and her supporting cast of savvy shutterbugs create a relaxed and fun environment for capturing life’s most memorable moments, whether it be a candid family photo, a sizzling boudoir portrait, or a reproduction of The Last Supper starring a litter of beagles. Each session is tailored to the client’s style and personality, incorporating clever props and interesting locales to create a customized photo shoot as unique as the subjects it snaps. AboutFace’s senior makeup artist, Charlene Armstrong, uses top-quality beauty products to hide blemishes, eliminate shine, conceal red eyes, and distract attention from obtrusive bunny ears, resulting in camera-ready countenances.
Between her time in the United States and in her native Brazil, Alexandra Neuber has spent 20 years behind the lens of her camera perfecting her framing and shutter-snapping skills. She remains discreet and out of the way during the many weddings, portrait sessions, and bar or bat mitzvahs she photographs, preferring to capture natural moments between kin and friends rather than dictating their every pose. Once sessions conclude, Alexandra and her clients confer to pick out favorite images, preserving the retouched pictures with prints, albums, posters, and dips into the Fountain of Youth.
With 25 years in the photography industry shooting a roster of celebrity clients such as Brooke Shields and Elijah Wood, David Sahadi of Studio 6 Photography focuses his trained eye to capture ephemeral, candid moments for his subjects. Up to six clients strike myriad poses for the famed shutterbug in his well-appointed Englewood studio, taking the full hour to get just the right smile for senior pictures, headshots, or family portraits. Following the session, 24 favorite photos transform into high-resolution, shareable images burned onto a DVD, and erstwhile photographees take home an 8"x10" print to frame or tape onto novelty-size passports.
Steven Burchard is used to entertaining an audience—he spent 13 years commanding the stage as a magician. So when he established Magical Memories Entertainment, he already boasted a solid understanding of what keeps crowds captivated. That’s why he and his team provide all the trappings for a memorable bash: DJs and bands; clowns, fortunetellers, and caricaturists; photographers and photo booths; and even arcade and carnival games.
Beyond its work staging traditional photo shoots and portraiture, Garden State Photo Studio's team of event photojournalists is dispatched to special occasions to tell their stories. As celebrations such as weddings, sweet sixteens, and bar mitzvahs unfold, photogs follow the belles of the ball, snapping or videotaping a chronology of candid moments with their professional-grade digital cameras and lighting equipment.
Garden State’s traveling photo booths fuel party-time fun and memory-making. After attendants set up the stationary photographer, party-goers pile in as the booth snaps pictures of the revelry. Instant images are printed onto strips and posted online so that guests can relive the memories later or ask the photo booth accusingly why it took so many pictures of Karen.
Glamour Shots made its name as a place where women could be transformed into models and immortalized in photographs. Though makeup, hair, and wardrobe services are still available with each session, Glamour Shots now offers portraiture for individuals of any gender, as well as families, children, and houseplants. Unique personalities shine in Glamour Shots’ galleries, which depict everything from children with airbrushed angel wings to women clad in lingerie. Digital images can be transformed into a number of prints and products, including wall art and graduation announcements. Glamour Shots guarantees clients’ satisfaction, or it will re-take portraits without a session fee, or exchange poses for a small additional fee within 14 days.
