The graduation of a youngest child, the birth of a newborn, the anniversary of parents—these are moments when every single detail should be preserved from time’s weathering. David Roth Photography has filled the pages of photo albums for more than two decades, guarding memories like gold for generations of clients. David began his studio in 1990 after a 15-year career snapping photos throughout New York, which helped hone a style rich in softness and intimacy. He and his crew of photographers make use of natural and studio lighting to bring out a child’s baby blues, an engaged couple’s genuine smiles, or the shock when new parents realize they accidentally brought a Cabbage Patch doll home from the hospital. David’s photographers never stick to a single style but instead blend a splash of photojournalism with a sprinkle of portraiture and a handful of candid shots to help capture events from every angle.

Liz and Rich Carroll, the husband-and-wife duo behind Studio360 Lifestyle Center, both hail from a health-and-beauty background: she is a stylist, and he is a personal trainer. Today, they lead a staff of educated stylists inside a 3,000-square-foot salon. Hairstyling tools and mirrors hang on chainlink fences in the industrial space decorated with graffiti and street signs, as well as an indoor fire escape that grants bird's-eye views of all the action. In addition to salon services, the facility also features a jewelry counter, a café, and the Invictus Athletic Club, a fitness center that hosts small-group training and boot-camp classes.
Christina Marotto takes the time to truly capture each of her subjects’ unique personalities, prompting them with her motto, “If a photo is worth a thousand words, what will yours say?” A look at her work substantiates this claim, as her photos are filled with laughing children, smiling faces, and joyous couples lost in each other’s eyes. Christina also hones her patience as a Girl Scout troop leader, using her skills to corral children during family photo shoots and individual portrait sessions. When she isn’t racing down hills on her skis, Christina might be photographing them in her travel photography album, which also includes landscapes of Horseshoe Bend in Arizona, Freedom Tower, and the twinkling lights of the Eiffel Tower.

The photographers at Wedding Box Photography capture glamorous images in their Flushing, Queens or Manhattan studios, or on location during the up to two-hour photo shoots. Subjects pose with DIY hairstyle and makeup in their choice of one outfit (either brought from home or rented for an extra fee), from casual to dressy to hot-dog suit. After the session, models review their likenesses online or back in the studio and select 30 or 50 digital images to be saved to CD or an online gallery. Though not included with this deal, clients may purchase prints of any image to use as holiday greetings, headshots, or inefficient screensavers.
