A picture is worth a thousand words, but that doesn't mean it should be prohibitively expensive. The photographers at Redeemed Photography know the importance of establishing long-term relationships with their clients, which is why they offer affordable prices and tasteful, casual sessions that keep people coming back for more, and their focus on family photography means that they often snap photos of children as they grow up.
During her photography sessions, WhirlieGirl Photography owner Angela and winner of the 2012 Naples Pulse Award gives life to her subjects. Angela’s edited, finalized images dramatize the beauty of her clientele—a varied mix of ages, sizes, and ethnicities, including children, families, couples, and boudoir sessions.
Winner of Wedding Wire's Bride's Choice Award in 2012, Complete Music Video Photo fulfills its namesake by stimulating events with music, video, and photography services that energize venues and record merrymaking for fond reflection. The outfit dispatches talented DJs and audiovisual specialists to events of every sort, be they joyful weddings, spirited school dances, or wild parties for the national chaperone's association. Event planners can also add a photo booth to their get-together, which comes complete with a prop box to let subjects express their quirky sides.
Red Door Studio's all-female staff puts ladies at ease during boudoir photo shoots that showcase each client's fun, flirty, or glamorous side. The studio, a member of Professional Photographers of America, hosts tasteful boudoir parties for groups of ladies to enjoy wine and hors d'oeuvres along with private studio time. Along with boudoir photos, the photographers capture wedding, pregnancy, and family photos, as well as senior, baby, and the occasional senior baby portraits.
Co-organizers and instructors David Maki and Paul Rodino provide an extensive curriculum to help fledgling shutterbugs capture visual transcendence. Students can learn to adjust the aperture, shutter settings, lens toupee, and program modes on a digital SLR camera in the Photo 102 class, designed for novice shot snappers wielding their first single-lens-reflex devices. Photo 103 picks up where its predecessor leaves off, stirring in the finer points of image composition and properly lighting subjects to make them appear translucent. Classes vary from week to week, so keep checking the calendar; past courses have covered table-top studio lighting and communicating with lenses via conversational Latin.
Since 1982, Nautilus Photography has been capturing the precious milestones and semi-precious inch-rocks of families, high-school seniors, and the newly engaged within its studio and surrounding gardens. Floor-to-ceiling windows flood the interior with sunlight to naturally accent patrons' pearly whites, dimpled cheeks, and enviable toucan beaks. During the one-hour session, up to seven customers (additional subjects will incur an additional charge), comprising a family or a new superhero group in need of promotional photos, can choose between several backdrops and amass a litany of props for swan-dives into piles of throw pillows and feather boas. Out on the sun-bleached blonde-wood deck, vases of hanging ivy speckle the white stucco walls stained with hints of aquamarine, and latticework awnings complete the playful integration of Floridian shoreline and English garden. Subjects can pose on a sand-colored cast-stone bridge overlooking sultry tropical foliage, or disappear into the vegetation to nail the "fleeing sasquatch" pose.
