Joseph, the award-winning photographer behind Derby Photography, draws upon a range of aesthetic styles when taking pictures, from the realistic bent of photojournalism to the pristine composition of classic European portraiture and fine art. For more than 20 years, Joseph has captured high-school seniors, kids, families, and engaged couples in of-the-moment poses that represent his subjects’ personalities. Clients can flash a grin at a location of their choosing, or opt for the expansive confines of Derby Photography’s studio or Derby Portrait Park’s more than 3 acres of land. In addition to portrait sessions, Joseph also extends his services to weddings, modeling portfolios, headshots, and professional events such as auctions and charity benefits.
Wedding parties. Families. Graduating seniors. These are just a few of the subjects that attract the lenses of Classic Image Photography's resident artists. After free consultations, photographer Nicole Waldron and videographer Mike Trentacosti capture still and moving images with a combination of photojournalistic, traditional, and artistic styles. They then edit video and transform images into everything from custom storybook albums to metal prints.
When not at the studio, Ms. Waldron and Mr. Trentacosti hone their skills by snapping photos all over the country. In fact, customers can purchase some of Ms. Waldron's favorite images from her travels, such as the back roads of Utah or the spaghetti mountains of Colorado.

In 2011, Rachel and Deha gave up their professional careers and founded Cousins Custom Cleaning with the goal of tailoring meticulous, reliable cleaning and organizing services to meet each of their customer’s needs. Cousins’ bonded, licensed, and insured cleaners scrub floors by hand, eschewing mops, which can spread dirt or duplicate uncontrollably and form an army without the care of an experienced sorcerer's apprentice. Customers can ask the cleaning duo to make their homes or offices shine with eco-friendly and allergy-friendly products, and residential customers can choose between an hourly rate for a one-time appointment and a flat rate for recurring services. Committed to giving back to their community, Rachel and Deha support the American Cancer Society and offer special discounts to cancer survivors and customers caring for people with special needs.
