Miniature explorers sail across the top of a 12-ounce bowl of creamy chicken-wild-rice soup ($3.35), occasionally docking at the edge of a bread bowl ($2 extra) or mistaking a piece of poultry for India.

The video chronicler combines her expertise at Zara Creative, which creates cinema-like digital films from commercials to full-length movies, including music videos and short features for charity events that are often attended by pro athletes or amateur basket-weavers. But Heather's best stories might just come from weddings. For these life-changing events, she shoots and assembles footage into trailers, highlight reels, and full-length films. She can even create outtake reels to highlight whimsical moments or review footage to determine who exactly caught the bouquet really.
In the midst of wedding-planning chaos, a Detroit bride-to-be hit a wall. She couldn’t find a quality photo booth nearby and within her budget. So, with the help of three tech-savvy friends, she made her own. The booth was such a hit at her own wedding that the four friends decided to open The Picture Closet as a full-time endeavor. In its short life span, the company has entertained partygoers, fundraiser-gala attendees, and wedding guests with whimsical booths that double as a good place to sequester people when the ex-girlfriend makes her speech. Each booth comes with professional attendants to help subjects get gussied up in a range of costumes and props, and they also come with two instant photo strips per shoot. The Picture Closet can even emblazon snapshots with a customized event logo.
