Michael of ACE Photography focuses on keeping quality high and fees low, allowing everyone to document their special moments with crisp, professionally shot photos. He specializes in weddings, crafting customizable packages, and also arranges glamour shoots and family portrait sessions.
Established in 2004 by husband-and-wife team Char and Tony Mandarich, Mandarich Photo offers professional photography with both a male and female perspective. Tony is a former NFL offensive lineman for the Green Bay Packers and Indianapolis Colts. As a high-profile figure who has appeared on the cover of publications including Sports Illustrated, Tony has unique insight into the world of photography. He and Char, a well-known fitness and glamour photographer, capture flattering images of models and athletes and boudoir shots of people of all backgrounds.
Gallery owner Jeph DeLorme and his shutter-savvy team believe different photography genres deserve distinctive styles and approaches. The team divides its shoots into nine categories, which range from family portraits to boudoir shoots, creating a house style to match the mood of each.
Perhaps the most traditional, family portraits choreograph action, props, and settings to reflect each subject's personality. Other styles daringly use props and photo editing to create hyper-stylized images that seem to draw influence from film, comic books, fashion magazines, and the dreams of Nostradamus. "Not-so-retro" pinups, for example, mingle old-style pinup fashions such as garters and cascading curls with dramatic backgrounds or sexy props that exude modern confidence.
At iMemories, the expert in-house pixelators have all the tools and tech-savvy spirit required to alter the fate of fading VHS tapes and unruly reels of film. No matter which medium they’re preserving, the iMemories process provides simplified transferal of all materials as well as straightforward, step-by-step pricing. First, customers pack materials in their own box or select a SafeShip box ($19.99 for an 11” x 11” x 5” box), which is then delivered to the home, filled with tapes or reels, and then shipped back to iMemories for digital conversion (video tapes, $9.99 each; film, $9.99 for each 50 feet without sound). Then, after the iMemories staff immortalizes the footage in a digital format, customers can preview their work using a private online account—an account that also allow customers to edit and customize their content, right down to the DVD packaging. Once the online preview reaches peachy approval, iMemories then allows users to place orders for delivered DVD copies ($9.99 each; DVD holds up to two hours of video).
A lot has changed in the world of photography since 1995, when Marcus McQueen Photography first opened shop. Its team has embraced the tides of change, though, and specializes in digitizing old photos at 300-dpi resolution. The newly digitized files preserve clients' memories on data DVDs that make images more durable than old methods of preservation, such as drawing wedding photos in the sand with a stick. Beyond the digital realm, Marcus and his team have had their work repeatedly featured in magazines such as Arizona Bride and Bird Talk.
