Summer Love Photography’s shutterbugs describe their photography style the same way they describe themselves: young, hip, and stylish. Their images pop with vibrant colors and high resolution, capturing people in all phases of life. The photographers take particular pride in their bridal work, declaring on their homepage, “We love brides and brides love us.” Wedding pictures evoke the joy of the occasion, particularly the chemistry between the bride and groom as they exchange vows or discuss who will manage the household finances.
The team of photographers at One Moment One Shot captures a wide array of occasions by traveling to shoots in Georgia, South Carolina, and parts of Florida. Photographer Rodney K. Gary specializes in infant, children’s, and family photography, which he snaps on location or by visiting the subjects on the astral plane. The studio also offers several wedding packages that provide four to eight hours of event coverage as well as prints, online proofing, and Photoshop tweaking of select images.
As charmingly anachronistic as trolleys may be, they move too fast for Pablo Aguilar, one of Capturing Savannah’s co-founders. So to capture the colors, lines, and ornamentation of Savannah’s 19th-century architectural wonders, he prefers to walk, leading groups on tours that blend the historical entertainment of a city tour with the skill set of a photography safari.
While ducking into 200-year-old nooks along Factors Walk, a onetime commerce area, Pablo and co-founder Brittany Nelson teach aspiring shutterbugs to take photos with “a clear purpose behind the shot.” The pair coach tour members to find aesthetically pleasing angles and to thoughtfully compose their images before shooting. Along with technique, they try to instill “a sense of nostalgia” in each photographer. “It’s all about the feeling,” Pablo says, “expressing the same feeling they felt [when they took] the photograph.”
Pablo and Britt previously lived in New York, Chicago, Austin, New England, and the Middle East, but both have fallen for the vibrancy and artistry Savannah draws from its history. For a glimpse of the city as seen through a lens at foot-speed, Capturing Savannah offers a gallery of Pablo and Britt’s tour photos.
A child's first bite of cotton candy. The loving gazes of a recently engaged couple. A high school senior's proud, accomplished grin. For photographers Pablo Aguilar and Brittney Nelson, these are the moments worth saving. The pair keeps these visions in mind during each of their artistic photo shoots, visualizing the perfect photo while arranging dynamic lighting or suggesting natural looking poses. In addition to specialties ranging from school portraits and business headshots to family portraits and newborn photography, the duo also guides groups on scenic tours of Savannah, where they share tips on how to best use any type of camera or activate the body's internal recording devices.
Coming to photography after an eclectic career that has seen him earn a PhD in biblical theology and win a Computerworld Smithsonian medal for contributions to technology, Falcon—The House of NyghtFalcon's founder and head photographer—specializes in emotionally powerful, naturally lit photos that reveal unseen perspectives in familiar sights. His handpicked photographic associates undergo three years of apprenticeship before donning the mantle of full partner. Basic and advanced seminars mix photographic theory with hands-on learning, teaching students how to master cameras' arcane functions, frame shots, and determine the shutter speed at which time folds back in on itself.
