A mysterious figure from the Yukon Gold Rush days, Klondike Penny owned a successful upscale brothel before she disappeared, leaving just three photographs behind to prove her existence. The photographers at Klondike Penny's Old Time Portrait Studio attempt to take pictures that could easily fit in next to Penny’s. They do this by outfitting guests with an inventory of Gold Rush-era costumes, situating them against a variety of period backdrops, and arming them with props such as lanterns, shotguns, and vintage bowler hats. After sessions, costumes are available for purchase for those who lose themselves completely in their Gold Rush alter ego. That way they can assume their new identity fulltime or at least during weekly trips to the supermarket.

Linda Kahle still cries at weddings. Which is impressive, considering she’s been to dozens—sometimes as many as four in one week. With her Canon DSLR cameras and arsenal of lenses in tow, Linda has captured exquisite images at those same weddings, cajoling smiles out of her subjects by having them play leap frog over the wedding cake.
In her unique approach to photography, Linda imagines each shot as if it was going to appear in a magazine spread, resulting in glamorous, dynamic prints. She was even tapped to be the official event photographer for a Weddingwire.com conference in Seattle.
In addition to wedding photography, Linda performs on-location shoots for families and recently engaged couples, and she also snaps classy boudoir portraits. To put her clients at ease, Linda takes the time to get to know them over a cup a coffee or even a yoga class.
