Marvelous Light Studios staff specializes in capturing more than what meets the eye—love and hope, for example, during an engagement session set in a park, or the sense of accomplishment radiating from a senior portrait. Even the titles of the studio's photo packages imply that photography can go beyond the visual. Family photo shoots are part of "The Heritage" sessions, whereas "The Legacy" package showcases an individual's unique character and talents.
Having been behind the lens for more than 28 years, Marvelous Light Studio's photographers have mastered the art of both indoor and outdoor photography. Services range from capturing and editing actor's headshots in the studio to documenting weddings and other parties in a photojournalistic style. This approach encourages natural candid moments and brings emotion to the final, retouched print. The studio can also photograph children, expectant mothers, and couples in their prom attire, who can use the pictures as a better keepsake than a clown-corsage that sprays water at their date.
Just as couples overlook nothing while planning a wedding, so Tasley Taylor overlooks nothing while photographing it. Throughout wedding days, Tasley snaps candid and posed photos of everything from the bridal party to flower arrangements and the newlyweds' first dance. After retouching and editing her strongest images, she preserves them with myriad products, including storybooks and DVDs loaded with high-resolution images. Tasley applies that same eye for detail to her other sessions, be they family portraits, event photography, or headshots.
Michael Drewitz's eyes are in high demand. Since opening his studio in 1980, the award-winning photographer has been booked to inspire other expert shutterbugs, speaking at engagements for the Northwest Georgia Professional Photographers Association and the Tennessee Professional Photographers Association. His flair with a lens has also nabbed him a job from former Georgia Governor Roy Barnes—Michael snapped stills of the politician's daughter inside the governor's mansion. His reputation for sophisticated shots stems in part from his time at the University of Memphis, where he studied art. Today, this training enables him to both plan and retouch images with creative cleverness.
Michael's wedding shoots combine formal and more casual poses, and his corporate portraits frame subjects against dignified backgrounds, such as bookcases or a conference room where even the table is wearing a tie. He also preserves images of family groups and children, from infancy to high-school graduation. With a variety of portrait finishes, he can imbue his creations with the look of a renaissance oil painting, adding an ethereal or classic ambiance through practiced brushstrokes.
Professional photographer Dana Dawes specializes in capturing life's most cozy moments, and her experience shooting families, babies, pregnant mothers-to-be, and nervous downstairs neighbors of mothers-to-be has left her with a keen ability to reflect, through pictures, the individual personality of each person or family. Your Groupon is good for an hour-long photo shoot; you can choose to come to her well-lit studio for a more formal, 19th-century tin-type pose or summon her to the grounds of your manor or favored scenic vista for a more casual session in a natural setting (up to a one-hour driving distance from downtown Atlanta). Bring the family for a series of candids, opt for a single reel of your newborn son, or capture your little sis on film before she goes away to college. You'll be left with a DVD of all the shoot's images, an 8”x10” of your chosen photo, and 20% off all additional studio-printed images.
After Joanna Lynn's son was born, she was always two steps behind him, capturing every moment she could with her camera. Before he came along, she had an interest in photography, but it wasn't until he was born that the hobby developed into a passion. Understanding the importance of capturing precious memories through pictures, Joanna decided to make the art her career. Today, she takes portraits of families, children, couples, and moms-to-be during fun and easygoing photo shoots. She snaps candid and posed images that are later edited and retouched. That postproduction process leads to photos with flawless finishes and colors that pop. With the same dedication and attention to detail, she also conducts classy boudoir sessions and covers romantic weddings.
