Fun Photo Booths' stationary shutterbugs invigorate events by providing curtained retreats for mini photo shoots alongside prop closets that empower each partygoer's innate silliness. For each quartet of stills, the booth dispenses two copies of the photos—one for the party guests and one for event organizers to fax to the mayor for approval. The prop closet bursts at the hinges with exaggerated accessories including masks, oversize sunglasses, and neon feather boas.

A graphic designer by training, Julie Weiss first picked up a camera when she couldn't find stock photography that was up to her exacting standards. She was familiar with technique, so she started snapping shots of people, places, pets, and food. She discovered a true passion for the art form and for making women feel beautiful, and founded Weiss Photography to make a career of it. She still shoots a wide range of subjects for personal and commercial use, but particularly specializes in boudoir photography, capturing moments of beauty that the naked eye might normally miss.

Professional photographers Jonathan Mathis and Carlos Guzman nurture and support budding photographic talents with their classes and workshops. During the six-hour Point & Shoot digital photography workshop, budding shutterbugs maximize camera potential as an expert instructor discusses the basics of camera operation while shining light on the various camera modes, menus, and zoom features. In both Point-and-Shoot and DSLR camera classes, instructors also cover the fundamentals of editing, cropping, printing, and storing. At the end of each workshop, apprentices review their photos from the session and discuss them as a group, pointing out strengths, weaknesses, and skillfully camouflaged Waldos. Other classes and workshops have included sessions on topics such as studio lighting, documentary photography, and digital editing. Creative Digital Workshops also hosts low-cost lectures and demonstrations to inspire communities to see and capture their worlds through a camera lens.
Rather than capture posed shots, D.C. Photography Studios' shutterbug duo, Scott and Sara, immortalizes spontaneous, candid moments during on-location shoots. With their blend of expertise in photojournalism and fine-art photography, the pair frames portraiture, families, children, and engaged couples with a skillful eye for artistic, visual storytelling. Their main focus, however, remains weddings, where they shoot brief group sessions that leave time for newlyweds to spend on their portraits, socializing with guests, or practicing bouquet tosses by hurtling flower girls across the dance floor. After the sessions, Scott and Sara amass the pictures into a personalized, password-protected online proof gallery from which patrons can select their favorite shots to preserve as various-sized prints or high-resolution digital files.
