Oh! Snap! Photography
With an idiosyncratic eye and an upbeat demeanor, Oh! Snap! Photography's Ailecia Ruscin snaps everything from boudoir attitudinizing to indie concerts. When she isn’t snapping shots of crowd surfers or hiding behind altars to capture creative wedding photos, her mobile studio travels to homes, backyards, and public parks throughout Lawrence and the surrounding areas.
Even during portraiture sessions, Ailecia has a documentarian’s knack for blending into the background and allowing the discreet vitalities of her subjects to surface. Her photography relies on natural light and unforced facial expressions—both of which add to the sense that the camera has merely snuck up on, rather than orchestrated, a precious moment. The results can be viewed almost immediately after each shoot on Ailecia’s website, where online galleries and print-purchasing features assist subjects in ordering large prints to mail to friends and wallet-size photos to fashion into dangly earrings.
