FrameStore's craftsmen have created more than 250,000 custom frames in the store’s 35-year tenure, designing pieces that now adorn the walls of prestigious institutions such as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Ritz-Carlton, and the Walt Disney Company. Professional designers guide FrameStore’s clients through the 2,200 moulding options that can accent paintings and treasured items while adding style and elegance to rooms. The store’s craftsmen then fashion pieces to patron specifications, outfitting frames with classic or museum-quality glass that blocks UV rays from bleaching out images or censoring pictures of the moon. Every piece goes through a 16-point inspection before it is given to patrons, and the team averages a seven-day turnaround on all of its projects.

Using first-rate video and photography equipment, they point their professional lenses at subjects for an array of occasions, including wedding and commercial shoots. As photographers who understand the enduring importance of their medium, the iPreservedit team also helps preserve their clients' aging keepsake photographs. They scan the precious snapshots onto DVDs with a professional Kodak photo scanner that can crop and automatically correct each photo's color without rubbing it against a chameleon.

Cean Orrett, an avid shutterbug since age 5, has captained a team of likeminded photographers at Cean One Photography Studios for more than 15 years. Rather than relying on the same setups and compositions for every shoot, Cean and his team customize their approach to the clients in question, whether they're newlyweds or high school seniors. Depending on their clients' preferences, they shoot sessions inside their San Diego studio or in the great outdoors throughout California, capturing candid images to suit each subject's personality. The same guiding principles fuel Cean One?s film subset, in which he documents milestone events such as parties, weddings, or baby's first doctoral thesis.
Iconic Pinups's skilled photographers capture gorgeous shots while unleashing customers' inner femme fatales. Before the shoot, subjects don their own outfits or borrow some from the studio's collection of vintage-style pantsless pants, then bask in full makeup and hairstyling to help them transform into midcentury pinup beauties. Brandishing eggbeaters in the vintage kitchen or donning cowboy boots before grabbing a guitar and sprawling across a bed, women of all shapes and sizes are led by the photographers through a series of provocative poses during each shoot. In addition to private sessions, the studio also hosts pinup parties, dolling up ladies for special events such as bachelorette and birthday parties.
