For over 30 years, Robert Crum has been personalizing photography sessions in his elegant, one-man studio or on location. He travels to beach weddings to capture candid smiles and romantic strolls in the sand and memorializes high-profile commercial products, events, and ribbon-cutting ceremonies for local businesses. Within his chandelier-lit studio?which is filled with gold-framed examples of his work?Crum crafts elegant backdrops that set the scene for corporate headshots, sultry boudoir shoots, and family photos. He also hand-embellishes portraits on painted canvas, turning beloved photos into classic works of art that make ideal heirlooms and great conversation starters for those who wear them around their neck.
Hannah Reyes Photography always had a creative streak in her, but the birth of her son inspired her to turn her to take more photographs?and eventually pursue it as a career. Now she chronicles memories and milestones outside for other families and children, using natural light to give crisp color to her portraits. As she meanders through fields and trees with her clients, she usually gets things started with a few suggestions on poses, but ultimately she aims to capture all the candid smiles in between. She also has a penchant for including the sun in her photos for the beautiful effects it creates as it tries to hide from the camera.
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.
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.
