Action Photos sends its pro shutterbugs to capture events of every ilk, from sports events to award ceremonies, and dispatches photo booths so guests can record their own self-portraits. Solo subjects or groups of attendees pile into red-draped photo booths at weddings and other soirees, beaming genuine smiles or infusing shots with creativity by imitating famous pieces of architecture. All rentals include unlimited photos and high-quality prints for each guest, and Action Photos also emblazons the bottom of each photo strip with the event name or a corporate logo. A booth attendant ensures the line is moving along and supplies subjects with a variety of props. At the end of the night, booths are whisked away by staffers into the same cloud of purple smoke whence they arrived.
As the woman behind the lens at Kadme Photography, Dana Dahl may be found wielding her camera on the sidelines of a peewee football game, arranging smiling families for a portrait, or just snapping pictures at the park. Dana brings eight years of photography experience to each shoot, along with a sunny demeanor and an infectious enthusiasm for her job. After taking pictures of mantle-worthy poses, Dana can retouch and preserve them in crisp prints.
With her trusty camera in hand, master photographer Angela Lynn helps to tell the stories of her clients. She strives to capture the true spirit of each subject, whether a newborn baby, expecting mother, or high-school senior for the 11th year in a row, focusing on natural poses and genuine emotion. After each session, Angela's comrade Sarah gets to work on finishing photos, skillfully brightening prints and designing albums.
As a teenager, Lyndsay Lyon surrounded herself with photographs: clippings from magazines covered her room, schoolbooks, binders, and lockers. It wasn't until after high school, however, that Lyndsay tried creating her own. Like her favorite photos from her youth, Lyndsay's work relies heavily on natural light, which illuminates the engaged or newlywed couples fitted into her frame. She mixes playful poses and emotional candid shots at every on-location session, which results in images she edits and assembles onto CDs.
Kristy Wilson demonstrates her love for photojournalism by creating wedding albums that tell a story. She extends this expertise to outdoor photo shoots, where she can be found climbing trees or holding up protractors to get just the right angle. Kristy also has experience in the modeling industry, which she uses to build professional portfolios.
Few can say they've walked among fairies and mermaids but Elma does it every day—and she has the pictures to prove it. As the shutterbug behind Enchanted Fairytale Portraits, she outfits children with iridescent wings, gossamer fins, and tri-corner caps so they can transform into fairies, mermaids, and pirates.
Elma also brings enchantment to those on the verge of adulthood. She does this by dressing young ladies with fairy wings and lavish gowns to celebrate their quinceaneras, creating elegant portraits that can be kept as mementos, sent as party invitations, or buried under the garage. During the Christmas season, Elma snaps family photos and she can enhance just about any image with digital stars, sparkles, and fairy dust after photo shoots.
