The husband-and-wife team of Tassos and Stephanie Makrakis link the past with the present in more ways than one at Momento Photoworks. In a restored studio originally built in the 1860s, their team of photographers specializes in portraiture employing the same Hasselblad data camera system that Neil Armstrong used to capture the famous picture of Buzz Aldrin standing in front of the moon's first McDonald's. Tassos does extensive research on new products and portrait styles to ensure that each unhurried session yields the best visual results. The crew consults at length with the clients before memorializing images of couples, families, and children, as well as taking professional headshots and corporate photos. Artists professionally retouch faces and mount, protect, and hand-finish portraits on canvas, offering a five-year warranty on any piece unable to withstand environmental elements or cryptic glances from neighbouring pictures.
Lou and Marianne Fenninger founded Art Source in 1978 in a 200-square-foot basement. When demand for the couple's poster prints exploded, they soon expanded their products and services. Within a few years they'd outgrown the basement, and moved into the 6,000-square-foot showroom they occupy today.
Nowadays, Art Source reaches every corner of the globe, distributing art for both retail and wholesale clients as far-flung as Europe, Japan, and New Zealand. The shop helps customers find perfect pieces for complementing their room decor and covering up unsightly fire extinguisher cases with 10,000 stock images of classic, modern, local, and international art, as well as an original art design service, all available for custom printing. Additionally, Art Source's staff help patrons preserve cherished pieces with custom framing services that can wrap works of any size in a carefully designed and assembled border.
The professionally trained photographers at Snap Photo Studio capture timeless family moments with in-studio portraiture. During each session, they capture personalities through creative and dynamic lens-work, while getting to know each family through jokes and smiles. Within cleanly designed, modern studio spaces, staff members encourage children to take candid, classic poses, as well as dynamic action shots. The studio also handles more pragmatic photography needs, such as passport pictures, available at select locations.
An engaged couple kissing in the middle of the street. A toddler in a crisp white dress and a flower brooch. A car’s back window, graffitied with “Just Married.” MomentForever Image’s photography team specializes in keepsake shots like these, with a special focus on wedding photography and infant portraits. However, their portfolio of artfully staged, full-colour photos also encompasses casting shots and family portraits, an upscale alternative to just all crowding into Uncle Ralph’s mug shot.
Jennifer Rue relishes all photographic opportunities. No matter the subject, to her, capturing a moment is always exciting. She brings that enthusiasm to her clients' customized photo shoots, be they for families, kids, couples, or pets.
