As brand names go, few illustrate the character of the company as well as Dream Big Photography. In many ways, the company is the culmination of owner and photographer Savannah Haynes's lifelong dream to take pictures—all the time. A graduate of the Boston University Center For Digital Imaging Arts for professional photography, Savannah was a photography hobbyist from a very young age. She purchased her own DSLR camera as a teenager and hit the ground running, winning a Manchester, New Hampshire, photography competition before founding her company as a 16-year-old. Since then, she has lent her enthusiasm and sharp eye to wedding ceremonies, senior portraits, and kids' photo shoots.
Before looking through the camera lens, the expert photographers at Picture People spend time getting to know their subjects and establishing a strategy for conveying their personalities in print. Then, film-ready clients pose in the bright camera room, airing teeth amid colorful backdrops and creative props. Following snapshots, subjects make their way to the selection station to choose their favorite poses from their session, which may be treated with sepia tones, color accents, and decorative borders to suit any wall, wallet, wallpaper pattern, or trophy walleye.
Picture People offers a variety of creative tips to help enhance mantel-dominating final results. The studio ensures satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on finished products.
Photographer Jeffrey Dachowski first picked up a camera in high school, and from his credits and credentials, you might think he’d never put it down since. His photos have landed on the pages of Rolling Stone and Woman's World, and his trophy case is lined with nine Kodak Gallery awards and two Fuji Masterpiece awards. Eventually, Jeffrey and his wife, Carolle, planted their own studio on the banks of the Merrimack River, where they teach photography classes in addition to working for commercial, portraiture, and wedding clients. Indoor courses teach Photoshop at beginning and intermediate levels, and the day-long Portrait Safari brings pupils outdoors, where they can capture scenes of majestic puppies in the wild.
Marina Zinovyeva has been creative all her life, so it only makes sense that, when she steps behind a camera, her style is imaginative. Sometimes, Marina employs photo-journalistic techniques. Other times, she takes a candid approach to capture her subjects' honest emotions in the moment. Many of those moments come on the road during on-location shoots, since Marina readily travels to spots around the region. She'll even hop on an airplane or hitch a ride with a passing hot air balloon to shoot destination weddings. When she's not on the road, Marina conducts sessions at a comfortable, private studio in Manchester, complete with a park for outdoor shots.
German-born shutterbug David Vogt spent years snapping photos inside a studio. Over time, though, he found himself strongly drawn to on-location photography. In each unique photo-shoot location, he saw countless opportunities for creative images that simply wouldn’t be possible against a studio’s generic backdrop.
These days, Vogt works exclusively on-location. He takes time to set up each shot, ensuring images that are creative and well composed, and then works with clients to choose the best images before meticulously editing them by hand. In addition to engagement photos, senior portraits, and other human-centered images, he snaps real estate photos that show properties in their best light.
A member of both the New Hampshire Professional Photographers Association and the Professional Photographers of America, John Malboeuf has been capturing memorable moments through his lens since 2005. John brings a diligent, professional, and friendly approach to each shoot, striving to give the client a picture to display on their wall or atop their mantel.
