When clients book a photo session with Garbos Photos, it’s owner Brandon who arrives on the scene. The former web designer channels his eye for detail into creating artistic portraits, classic wedding albums, and steamy boudoir shots. After the last camera flash, he posts the images onto a password-protected gallery for clients to view.
The Forgotten Stories preserves life's fleeting moments during on-location photo shoots. The photographer's camera lens can capture the smiling faces of brides, grooms, family members, and friends. Afterward, clients receive their new memories as prints or high-resolution digital files.
Sonia Orejel had an eye for photography ever since she was little. All she wanted each birthday was another camera to add to her arsenal of photography tools. As she got older, she was never without her camera and easily slipped into the role of resident-photographer for all parties and get-togethers of family and friends. Today, she's a master of her trade and uses her experience to create fresh and memorable photos for her clients, shooting all portrait and event sessions with an eye for vibrant colors and sharp focus.
Dwight Vasel has racked up more than 14 Emmy Awards for his videography talent; but at his studio, he focuses on still images. For more than two decades, he has built his shoots around his two specialties: wedding photography and unique portraits. His idiosyncratic portraits range from shots of motorcyclists astride their bikes to pictures of a baby laughing on an outdoor couch beneath a leafless tree. At each of his shoots, he collaborates with clients to find a concept that suits their tastes; alternatively, students can enroll in his photography classes and learn to compose their own shots. His courses can cover a range of topics, from shooting techniques for DSLRs to effective ways to use flash rather than just replacing a semi-broken flashlight.
Amber Richardson Evers, owner of Lifestyle Portrait, has always been fascinated by photography; she recalls photographing still-life scenes as early as the second grade. But it’s only in the past 10 years that she’s devoted her career to snapping senior portraits, weddings, and baby portraits. Ever aware of light, composition, and color, she makes her subjects shine both in the studio and on location. Her welcoming persona allows customers to relax and be themselves—even her portraits of pets, which are naturally without artifice and opposable thumbs, exude peace and humor.
