For 60 years, Photos Unlimited's large network of experienced photographers—selected through a rigorous screening process—have been capturing the personalities of families, kids, and pets with their in-studio and outdoor photo shoots.
Photos Unlimited now captures on-location photo sessions, too, including snaps of engaged couples walking hand in hand or images of newly married couples performing the traditional cake toss. And its photographers can work with clients to create professional-looking advertisements and press releases for their businesses.
After photo sessions conclude, photographers print out high-resolution digital images, put them on CDs, or add them to Photos Unlimited's online and mobile platforms.
Rosa Wang employs an eye trained with more than 20 years of photographic experience to create images that combine high art with essence-capturing portraiture. Rosa and her all-female team of creative talent compose tasteful yet romantic boudoir, couple's boudoir, and bridal boudoir portraits. Rosa’s commitment to fostering a warm studio environment in which women of all shapes and sizes can feel comfortable is reflected in her rigorous privacy practices. Her eagerness to meet with clients for a pre-shoot discussion over a calming cup of tea or inside a secure bank vault. During her relaxed, leisurely paced shoots, Rosa gently coaxes forth alluring angles from the shyest of sitters and employs flattering lighting, backgrounds, and props such as flirtatious feathers to draw out inner sirens. Once flash bulbs have been extinguished, Rosa’s Photoshop prowess shines as she fine-tunes images and edits out imperfections such as blemishes, stretch marks, and wrinkles in time.
Lou and Marianne Fenninger founded Art Source in 1978 in a 200-square-foot basement. When demand for the couple's poster prints exploded, they soon expanded their products and services. Within a few years they'd outgrown the basement, and moved into the 6,000-square-foot showroom they occupy today.
Nowadays, Art Source reaches every corner of the globe, distributing art for both retail and wholesale clients as far-flung as Europe, Japan, and New Zealand. The shop helps customers find perfect pieces for complementing their room decor and covering up unsightly fire extinguisher cases with 10,000 stock images of classic, modern, local, and international art, as well as an original art design service, all available for custom printing. Additionally, Art Source's staff help patrons preserve cherished pieces with custom framing services that can wrap works of any size in a carefully designed and assembled border.
