Drawing inspiration from the words of French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson, Jessica Lin sees photography as “a supreme moment captured with a single shot.” Whether she's shooting fashion models, babies, engagement parties, weddings, or portraits, she uses her keen artistic eye to immortalize moments and memories with photos. Jessica's creative spark helps showcase clients' individuality by incorporating unique angles and steering away from poses used in most typical photo shoots or prison mugshots.
Describing herself as "equal parts photographer, artist, and documentarian," Up Studios owner Marcie loves catching moments that are as unexpected as they are personal. She feels at home behind a digital lens, and images from her portfolio have been spotted on The Knot. When not training a lens on weddings, Marcie and her associate photographers are taking infants' portraits, shooting charity benefits, and composing outdoor family portraits of parents and their first painted birdhouses.

In Chris Hui's engagement photographs, you can often find more than just an engaged couple. One shot shows two seeding dandelions waving in the breeze; in the background, two lovebirds are kissing. In another, a couple is taking their pooch for a walk, laughing as he trots before them. Hui doesn't just reserve these creative compositions for engagement shoots, either—he also helms wedding photo shoots and documents his international travels.
Carter Kustera's hand-painted works of art have been exhibited internationally as a part of U2's PopMart Tour and the national branding for Barneys CO-OP and Jonathan Adler stores. Carter Kustera's requirements ask that customers send an image of the person, pet, or perfectly portioned deli sandwich to undergo artistic apotheosis as a minimalistic outline emblazoned in black, red, light blue, light pink, kelly green, or lavender. Each individualized portrait is ensnared within the permeable pores of hot-press paper with gouache brushstrokes, a more opaque form of watercolor that appears richer and more reflective than other diluted dyes. Customize your silhouetted self-image with your choice of caption to verbally embody your personality or confuse viewers by epitomizing someone else's.
