After once attending photography school for three years in New York to perfect his studio photography and lighting techniques, Brad Washburn now channels his 15 years of experience into Washburn Photography, focusing primarily on weddings and family photo shoots. Brad's specialty lies in studio head shot photography, where he holds sessions in a relaxed upscale studio with sharp focus and colors that pop. Engagement sessions, maternity, newborn, acting, modeling, executive head shots, and event photography are also within his skill set.
Yuen Lui Studio, a family-owned photography business specializing in individual and family portraits and wedding photography, creates visual heirlooms in a tradition of quality it has upheld since 1947. With several area studios available, each boasts a multitude of backdrop options for portraiture sessions, or photographers may take sessions outdoors to add natural scenery to the frame. Wedding and engagement shots come to life under the careful eyes of each photographer as they seize rare moments and trap them in frames to be displayed like trophies from a hunt. High-school, child, baby, and family portraits keep precious memories locked in time for clients, who can peruse an online gallery of their images after their session.

Eschewing the cramped booths of yore, the staff of Triumph Photo Booth lend out open booths that fit more guests and allow others to watch. This interactive concept puts a fun twist on the photos, which users enhance with a huge array of provided props. Touchscreen controls allow them to choose between black-and-white or color photos, all of which can be embossed with custom event designs.
Yuen Lui Studio, a family-owned photography business specializing in individual and family portraits, has been creating photographic heirlooms since 1947. With your 20- to 30-minute photo session ($30), get your soul captured indoors at Yuen Lui's studio, boasting 16 background options, or let nature provide the backdrop at Aliso Beach's outdoor picture-taking spots. Up to eight people can appear in the shoot (additional subjects will incur an extra cost), making this deal an ideal opportunity to upgrade the framed family photos that have been hanging in your parents’ home for the past 600 years. Now that you aren’t riddled with acne or plagued with a six-year-old’s gummy smile, split the cost with your sibs and surprise your folks with a more up-to-date snapshot just in time for the holidays.
Happy Foto Booth's party hosts help commemorate birthdays, company events, and weddings with photo booths that capture guests in memorable poses.

To customize each picture, guests can dress up in provided boas and hats, select a custom background, and overlay the image with personalized text using the touchscreen.
