Photographer Christina Brown manages to cast everything in a flattering light. With a degree from The Ohio Institute of Photography informing her techniques, she snaps subjects against natural backdrops that lend each shot its distinct personality. An expecting mother stands against a field of growing ferns; a graduating senior launches into the air with a smile; a newborn rests soundly in his parents’ hands. In black and white or in highly saturated color, Christina’s images are precisely composed without feeling forced, an aesthetic that carries across her regular in-studio or on-location shoots, as well as wedding sessions that capture the big day better than embedding a hidden camera inside the cake.
Sherri Barber, preserver of gleaming smiles and curator of glossed memories, frames expressive portraits within her professional studio. Individual portrait sitters or beach-volleyball teams can show off their aptitude for staring intensely into the middle distance or grinning at nearby props as Sherri snaps shots for about 60 minutes. Once all personages have been fully documented, photographees can peruse a photo gallery, culling pictures spoiled by closed eyes or falling ceilings, then immortalizing the best shots in an 11”x14” print and two 5”x7”s.
The photo booth imbues parties with old-school fun as its modular design allows it to fit in even the most cramped settings, such as the living room of a house located in a shoe. Subjects select from a selection of wild props to spice up their photos while an onsite attendant keeps everything running smoothly. A Sony dye-sublimation printer cranks out pics in 12 seconds, instantly giving customers keepsake photos in black and white, sepia, or color.
With high-resolution camera equipment in tow, the staff of Candid Photo Booth Company trek to weddings, parties, and proms to immortalize enjoyable memories. After donning props, guests pile into the photo booth to pose with their friends, creating unlimited photos in color or black-and-white. A provided scrapbook transforms into a keepsake for the host, capturing the night's best photos, signatures, and apologies for falling into the chocolate fountain.
Strike A Pose infuses parties with fun and flair, giving people an excuse to mug for the camera. It rents photo booths to large organizations such as Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Indiana University as well as private shindigs. Up to eight people at a time fill out the cozy structure, posing for the bright flash with props such as wigs, hats, or invisibility cloaks. The photos come cascading out of the printing machine, giving revelers a chance to look full into their own faces and marvel at how young they used to look.
Pix Perfect's photo specialists free party hosts from carrying around camera equipment by setting up and operating photo booths to capture special occasions. Specialists then hand guests prints of their smiling faces shortly after their session, gifting them with a keepsake of the event or at least a strip of paper to cover their eyes during scary movie scenes.
