Furnace Hill Photography’s team of shutterbugs composes vibrant and artful images during portrait sessions for newborns, families, and high-school seniors. Skilled at handling large volumes of photos, photographers also work with schools and dance studios to document all the excitement of special events. Their talents extend to planning wedding shoots and covering ceremonies to preserve memories for generations.
In their 3,000-square-foot studio or on-location, the visual-media experts at FineLine Weddings—whose striking, modern images earned a bride’s-choice award from WeddingWire.com—record special moments with photography and videography. Although they specialize in wedding, engagement, bridal, and “trash the dress” photography, their services also include boudoir photography, senior portraits, and a variety of prints, keepsakes, and albums. In the studio, 24 backdrop designs and sets offer customers a choice of settings, and flexible photographers can capture an array of moods including elegant, goofy, artistic, romantic, or hungry for pizza. Clients are encouraged to bring their own music to their photo shoots, or they can select music from FineLine’s satellite-radio system.
After photo shoots, a dedicated staff of professional photo editors touch up all photos, and FineLine Weddings guarantees that wedding photos will be ready within eight weeks of the wedding date. To complete momentous days, FineLine also offers wedding DJ and photo-booth-rental services.
Before looking through the camera lens, the expert photographers at Picture People spend time getting to know their subjects and establishing a strategy for conveying their personalities in print. Then, film-ready clients pose in the bright camera room, airing teeth amid colorful backdrops and creative props. Following snapshots, subjects make their way to the selection station to choose their favorite poses from their session, which may be treated with sepia tones, color accents, and decorative borders to suit any wall, wallet, wallpaper pattern, or trophy walleye.
Picture People encourages subjects to arrive 15 minutes early to the shoot and offers a variety of creative tips to help enhance mantel-dominating final results. The studio ensures satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on finished products.
Olan Mills Inc. provides families with high-quality portraits, continuing a mission that was established more than 75 years ago by founder Olan Mills Sr. Skilled in the art of capturing infants, children, families, and bunny-ears-giving ghost orbs on film, Olan Mills’s experienced smile snappers will take a series of poses amid a variety of backgrounds and lighting options. The studio is equipped with a selection of props—including numbers for birthdays, toys, and boxes—and patrons may bring their own photo-enlivening items from home. The resulting photos find their way to prints in natural color, black and white, or sepia tones; they can also be immortalized in the studio's signature Old Masters style, a canvas brushed with highlights to re-create the look of an oil painting. Like the gentlemanly mariners of ages past with their full schedule of sea battles, the photographers welcome appointments, but do not require them.
