Welcoming a new child. Graduating from high school. Walking down the isle. Husband and wife Eric and Lynda Kelley harness more than 10 years of photography expertise as they capture these lifetime events. Their eye-level and high-angle shots capture posed subjects in color and black and white, highlighting the joy of a toddler as he plays with toys against a studio backdrop, or the bliss of an expectant couple silhouetted against an orange sunset.
At weddings, the duo take pictures from the moment the bride and groom leave for the aisle all the way to the reception, never stopping until newlyweds are satisfied with the coverage or everybody realizes the maid of honor has eloped with the cake. Afterward, Eric and Lynda grant couples full printing rights, assemble every picture onto a disc, and host wedding day images in an online gallery for 270 days.
Named the Favorite Photographer in the South Bend Tribune's 2008 Readers' Choice Awards, family-owned-and-operated McDonald Studio has been preserving smiles and memories in the Michiana area for 150 years. Memorialize mugs in the click-crazed comforts of McDonald Studio's studio lighting or at an on-location site of choice, including a home, park, or tinfoil castle.
Wedding parties. Families. Graduating seniors. These are just a few of the subjects that attract the lenses of Classic Image Photography's resident artists. After free consultations, photographer Nicole Waldron and videographer Mike Trentacosti capture still and moving images with a combination of photojournalistic, traditional, and artistic styles. They then edit video and transform images into everything from custom storybook albums to metal prints.
When not at the studio, Ms. Waldron and Mr. Trentacosti hone their skills by snapping photos all over the country. In fact, customers can purchase some of Ms. Waldron's favorite images from her travels, such as the back roads of Utah or the spaghetti mountains of Colorado.
Think of boudoir photography outfits and you probably think of lingerie. And though there are plenty of black lace corsets and fishnet stockings on display in the Haute Mama Photography gallery, there are also less conventional choices: a loose men's dress shirt and tie, an off-the-shoulders motorcycle jacket, even a strategically placed basketball that serves as a sort of top. It's partly a reflection of the diversity of the photos' subjects, whose figures range from slender to voluptuous, and partly a testament to the creativity of studio owner Leah Severson, who has designed it so that even the studio's most basic package allows for multiple outfit changes. Severson has so thoroughly mastered the boudoir photo business that she holds both group workshops and one-on-one mentoring sessions, during which she shares with other photographers tips for posing subjects, establishing the right mood for shoots, and getting their work to appear on the first page of Google results without taping anything to their monitors.
Modern. Fun. Your Life.
Salome photography isn't your typical staged and posed boring photographer. And if you're tired of the typical, you've come to the right place! My photography is fun, fresh, and hip. It showcases you in the best way, the most natural way. It's about YOU having fun, be YOU!
During a half-hour session at MJ Studios’ fully equipped studio, a skilled shutterbug will rattle off shots with the speed and precision of a camera-fitted, laser-guided cheetah. Striking images are artfully captured with an uncommon eye to provide game-changing glimpses of the subject’s disposition that can’t be replicated with an emoticon-riddled letter of recommendation. Families can improvise clever poses that will baffle genealogists centuries down the road, children can imitate the expressions of baffled genealogists, and solitary models can sit simply as themselves or, to achieve better posture, sit on themselves.
