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.
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.
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.
