Oversize sunglasses, novelty hats, or simple smiles bedeck partygoers at weddings, birthdays, and corporate events as they pile into Fox Photo Lounge’s spacious photo booths. Behind the booth’s custom privacy drape, guests strike free-form poses while a modern digital camera clicks color or black-and-white photos. The prints—which can be arranged in single, double, or four-photo layouts—reel out of the printer embossed with the details of the event, helping commemorate the occasion when hosts file them into a complimentary scrapbook or the filing cabinet in their handbags.
Fox Photo Lounge attendants set up all equipment before events and stay on hand for the duration of the rental to ensure a smooth, problem-free evening. In addition to personalized prints and decorative scrapbooks, all photo packages include a USB storage device filled with photos guests can share online or print at home.
During shoots at Portrait Simple—a studio specialized in child, infant, maternity, and family portraits—skilled photographers snap an unlimited number of poses in front of a choice of backgrounds and provide the convenience of instant printing. Sessions can take any size group, accommodating families and close-knit juries. Models don simple duds without heavy patterns or logos and can tote props such as sports equipment or special blankies. After striking jubilant, winsome, or wrathful poses, guests sit down with the photographer to select images to turn into prints.
Jaquis Saylor began his career in fashion by designing his own line, Green Grape Clothing. But soon photographing models piqued his creativity more than dressing them. So he ditched his sewing kit for a camera and taught himself the ins and outs of photography. At Green Grape Photography, Jaquis's runway and editorial experience led to his specialty: building the portfolios of up-and-coming models with sessions that include makeup, up to four looks, and high-resolution images. In addition to fashion shoots, he snaps photos for glamour and pinup sessions, as well as events and family portraits.
The final zipping of a wedding dress before the bride races off to the church. A newborn boy resting his head against his mother's cupped palms. When Umberto Esposito steps behind the lens, he strives to capture candid, yet profound moments like these. In both his studio and on location, Umberto also snaps shots of expectant moms, families, and kids about to tip over their first three-dimensional chessboard in frustration.
At Bright Light Studios, photographer Sameh draws on more than a decade of experience in the industry to helm a creative team dedicated to capturing professional photographs and recording momentous occasions on video. The artistic photographers aim their lenses at subjects of all ages and dispositions, from graduating seniors and smitten couples to cats looking to start viral Internet memes. They also snap images at landmark events, blending into the background at bar mitzvahs or crouching behind tiered cakes at weddings so as not to interfere with candid moments. Back in the studio, a team of graphic designers helps businesses get off their feet, designing company logos and layouts for brochures and marketing campaigns.
