Timeless Moments Photographic Art's photographers stand out thanks to the uncommon amenities they provide at photo shoots. Among these are kid-friendly photo-shoot themes, such as A Day in the Country or Un Jour A Paris, which have whimsical set pieces, props, and backgrounds. The photographers also travel to noted local sites for on-location shoots, aiming their lenses at subjects framed by Fort Story or Norfolk Botanical Garden and lit by natural light. To avoid interruptions from feral casting directors, subjects can hold shoots in a private park or in their own home.
The brainchild of veteran wedding DJ Shawn Cox and wedding coordinator Carolyn Stark, The Boardwalk Photo Booth Company sets itself apart from run-of-the-mill portable studios by offering vintage-style booths with classy wood-grain exteriors. A winner of The Knot's 2012 Best of Weddings award, Boardwalk fortifies each booth with a high-resolution Canon digital camera and professional flash system, capturing subjects as they mug on comfy benches built for two or three.
Behind the booth's velvet curtain, partygoers model licensed props from movies such as Pirates of the Caribbean and Harry Potter, along with feather boas, glittering crowns, and spectacles. A high-speed digital printer churns out smudge-resistant memories as a booth specialist lurks nearby to fix technical problems, encourage participation, and serenade the booth for a job well done.
Eschewing the confines of a studio, Jennifer Lazos shoots every roll for Bella Lynn Studios on location, harnessing the natural light of each park, field, or cityscape to enhance her foregrounded clients. Jennifer constantly cracks jokes throughout each custom session to ensure that babies, children, or couples feel completely at ease and produce naturally candid smiles. The joviality continues afterward when customers consider which poses to transfer onto gift prints, wall prints, or canvases, which are great for hanging on living-room walls or in a gallery at the Louvre.
SoundVision Studios unites three forms of media under one roof with a trio of spaces dedicated to music, photography, and video. The recording studio—available for hourly rental or for group gatherings—includes a professional sound booth, an artist lounge with entertainment amenities, and a mixing room for sound engineers. Inside the photo and video spaces, directors make use of green screens and Nikon D7000 cameras to shoot still and moving images in high definition.
Photographer Tianna Yentzer captures a lot of elements during couples, newborn, and senior photo shoots—with love being the biggest element she strives to frame in the moment. When on location, she creates a playful environment that gives her clients the freedom to express themselves, which gives her the best opportunities to capture it.
