In the more than 25 years Jim Earls has spent behind the lens, he has photographed over 1,500 weddings and countless families, high-school graduates, and children. A former president of the Arizona Professional Photographers Association, Earl also uses his portrait-snapping prowess to teach digital-photography classes. Beginners’ sessions instruct students on how to create quality images by manipulating camera settings, exposure, natural light, and flash. Alternatively, classes on computer and camera functions give step-by-step instruction on how to navigate cameras and upload images that can be edited, printed out, and used to wallpaper a bathroom. Earls leads both indoor and outdoor photography shoots, which help students become more versatile photographers by working among studio settings as well as natural backdrops.
A full-time professional photographer with experience spanning the fields of fashion and photojournalism, with more than a decade of experience photographing weddings around the world. Working with couples to plan both local and destination weddings. Every wedding has surprises – but the quality of your photos shouldn't be.
Edgeton Photography's team of personable shutterbugs brandish their smile-summoning skills to incarcerate moments of familial affection within mantel-ready portraits. Gather up to five members of the clan and spend approximately 60 minutes pleasantly emoting and reenacting passive-aggressive salt passes inside a professional studio that's equipped with a range of retina-soothing backdrops. Grin-off sessions allow for up to three wardrobe changes, permitting clients to diversify the aesthetic feel of their photographs, as well as showcase their trifecta of Smurf costumes. After uploading the finished products onto an online gallery, Edgeton Photography’s camera crackerjacks will corral 20 of the best images onto a CD and actualize the most cherished frame onto an 11”x14” print. Customers will also get a 10% discount on any additional prints, products, or services. Unlike drive-thru marriage-counseling services, Edgeton Photography requires its clients to call ahead for an appointment.
The team at Michelle Burley Photography knows there is more to preserving family memories than the simple click of a shutter. First, they create a welcoming boutique portrait-studio atmosphere—kids entertain themselves with finds from the resident toy box while adults enjoy coffee and sweets. Photographers guide graduating seniors or beloved pets through each session, incorporating any number of backgrounds or props to artfully set the scene. They seek out the perfect lighting at the studio's outdoor area or within the abundant sunshine streaming into one of two camera rooms. Clients then proof their images in an online gallery or with a cutting-edge portrait-viewing system that allows canines to choose their favorite shot via telepathy.
The crew leans toward a classic, romantic style, making it a natural match for wedding and boudoir photography. The photographers preserve captured images as wrap canvases, gallery mounts, or custom keepsake storybooks.
Professional photographer Ashley Nicole stylishly captures life milestones through in-studio and on-location shoots, using a skill set honed by more than a decade of experience. Before snapping her shutter, Ashley summons smiles to the faces of children, high-school seniors, newlyweds, and uncarved jack-o’-lanterns alike with a friendly personality and passion for her work. After sessions, clients boost memories and fill frames by purchasing keepsake prints or USB drives with high-resolution digital files. Alternatively, novice camera coddlers can nestle under Ashley's wing during her photography classes, which impart techniques for shooting in natural light via scenic romps through Reid Park, leaving clients ready to document their child's soccer game or prove the existence of Bigfoot's soccer league.
Emily Thueringer doesn’t need helping finding creative outlets. She paints, makes ceramics, writes, and reupholsters furniture, but in high school it was her sister who introduced her to photography. Since then, Emily’s passion for photography has grown, and her portfolio along with it. Her body of work is filled with high-contrast, eye-level shots of her subjects, some posing and others candidly glancing out of frame. She captures these warmly colored shots during photo-shoot packages tailored for weddings, babies, senior portraits, and holidays. She then shares how she captured them during photography classes and hour-long TV events entitled Photographer Secrets Revealed!.
