The eyes behind Bri's Eye Photography belong to Brian Scott Kalish, a professional photographer who has honed his chops since his youth, when he helped as an assistant in his parents’ photo labs. In 1990 Brian joined the Air Force, which sent him around the world where he was able to photograph remote and exotic locales such as Venice, Brussels, and Amsterdam. Now Brian specializes in portrait photography for small and large groups, including receptions, corporate events, and family portraits. He is also skilled in product photography and photography for children and animals.
Capturing intriguing images with her camera since she was 6 years old, Megan Leigh Ryan has spent a lifetime behind the lens. She uses that experience to preserve meaningful moments during portrait sessions for families, kids, couples, and moms-to-be. Skilled at manipulating natural light, she likes to use nature's panoramic backdrops to add a touch of drama to shoots. With the same attention to detail, she also covers weddings and engagements.
For more than 20 years, the professional photographers at Charlie's Angels Photography have worked to capture images that not only preserve memories but also incorporate artistic touches. Their digital galleries boast shots from larger occasions such as weddings and runway shows to private events such as boudoir and portrait sessions. Their staff also includes professional makeup artists, who can prep subjects for shoots or gussy up complexions before weddings or high-school-graduation re-enactments.
Shannon Holt, a mostly self-taught photographer who learned her craft by doing copious amounts of research on the Internet, created Studio77 Photography in 2008. The self-described chatty photographer prefers to get to know clients over coffee before their shoot, discussing details such as the desired makeup and wardrobe look and how to turn an old negligee into a sexy handkerchief. She prides herself on empowering women during daring boudoir shoots and has developed her own editing techniques to add the finishing touches on images.
Maya Mouis has shot models in business sheaths, in high-fashion fringed crop tops, and frolicking in their bikinis on the beach. Since its inception in 2000, however, her eponymous management company and photography studio has encompassed more than eclectic photo shoots. She and her team also aid models with agency placement and teach them to stride down the runway with style.
Rina Alvarez sees capturing other people’s memories on film as a great honor and her life’s work. She strives to capture these special moments through a variety of sessions from organically composed family portraits to flirtatious boudoir shots to photographs of dancers and musicians in motion. Alvarez has a talent for working with both natural and indoor light, which serves her well when she is capturing standard wedding shots, from the kiss at the altar to the moment when the best man dumps a cooler of champagne over the bride and groom.
At anniversaries and weddings, graduations and birthdays, Mojo Fotobooth helps clients preserve the memories of milestone events.
