Marie Griffin’s love of photography started at a young age when she would snap pictures of birds while sitting with her grandmother beneath the feeder. Today, she carries on the family-based tradition by shooting portrait sessions for newborns, kids, couples, and families. She also captures the energy and myriad emotions at weddings, and can enliven all private events with photo-booth rentals.
Two partygoers wrapped in feather boas ham it up, laughing, cheek-kissing, and voguing. A flash pops, an 18-megapixel camera clicks four times, and 10 seconds later, a color or black-and-white print rolls out of the photo booth like a prize from a carnival game. The pair not only takes the print home, but also uploads a digital version to social-media sites with the helpful assistance of onsite attendants. Touchscreen controls on a 22-inch display allow them to alter their photo’s color scheme or adjust its size without the intensive labor of building a shrink ray.

Artists. Designers. Musicians. Community activists. The photographers behind Brea Photography are all of these things, which infuse their images with warmth, passion, and detail. Their style also exhibits a touch of vintage appeal. Black-and-white photos capture candid shots of casually dressed families as they crowd on the couch and share laughs. Other portraits show how muted colors can pop with a little contrast. This classic approach, blended with modern techniques, can be applied to all sessions, including weddings, headshots, and maternity.
For weddings, Brea Photography goes the extra mile to ensure that the bride and groom only have to worry about saying "I do." The photographers not only photograph the event, but also show up with safety pins, super glue, and power bars for cases of wardrobe malfunctions or growling stomachs that might standup and object the wedding. A thorough checklist agreed upon prior to the wedding makes sure the photography plans go on without a hitch, mapping out photographs for each and every step of the ceremony and reception.
Brea Photography's well-rounded team not only feels a sense of responsibility to their clients, but also to the environment. Throughout the photo-shoot process, they do everything they can to reduce their carbon footprints and keep their handprints from looking like chain-smoking turkeys. For instance, they assemble eco-friendly photo albums, use rechargeable batteries, deliver images to clients electronically, and recycle their old photography gear.
The photographers at Strike A Pose Photography match their settings to their subjects, creating memorable images set in local spots or against intimate studio arrangements and backdrops. Outdoors they carefully capture the expressions of kids, couples, and families, as well as the rich texture of stone walls or the bristles of tree bark that surround their compositions. Indoors, the studio is decorated to reflect a theme or holiday, and photographers take special care to shoot beauty-pageant headshots that rely on natural retouching, soft lighting, and other tricks to conceal imperfections. For more exotic shots, Strike A Pose places subjects in front of green-screen backdrops of idyllic locales, such as Venice, Disneyland, or a white-sand beach on the island of Dr. Moreau.
