Photographer April Cullett understands the importance of color, placement, and collaboration—she used to be an interior decorator before she opened Studio Gagliano. Nowadays, her eye for making things look their best influences her contemporary style of wedding photography and family portraiture. Her portfolio showcases a selection of black-and-white and color images, as well as a recurring technique, the side-by-side photo, which places multiple poses next to each other to create one memorable image. A majority of Cullett’s work is backdropped by city and rural landscapes, as well as patterned sheets in her naturally lit photography studio, and her collaborative approach produces both posed and spontaneous photos. To keep the collaboration going, Cullett invites her clients to the studio following each session to view a slideshow of the photos and select the best ones for placement on a private online gallery.
A picture is worth a thousand words, an exchange rate frequently used by Caught By a Flash Photography’s shutterbug, Lisie. By manipulating the composition and content of her images, she aims to tell a story whether she is shooting in her studio or on location. Subjects can choose sites where they feel most comfortable, which could range from their homes to the attached garages where they hide from their toaster collections. Lisie’s past work includes family portraits and pictures of riders and their horses. Her vision also extends to specialty shoots, such as senior portraits for soon-to-be high-school graduates, or wedding packages, which include up to eight hours of nuptials coverage.
Robert Morton took his first picture and his first step towards becoming a professional photographer in 1983. In the years since, he's captured dynamic images for the likes of Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, and Maserati. At Photography by Tre' Lynn, a studio named after his son and wife, Morton focuses his lens and aesthetic senses to reveal his subjects' personalities in keepsake portraits. He can arrange individual and group shots in an elegant loft studio that offers plenty of natural light and views of the downtown skyline, and the photographer can also travel to memorialize events such as weddings, parties, or space-shuttle christenings.
