When major life events take place, Linda Hans dispatches to the scene to capture moments in a candid, natural manner. She's especially polished in shooting weddings and engagements, though she'll also snap the smiles of kids and families for portraits. After sessions, clients can even have Linda organize photos and transform collections into memory-packed albums.
The outdoor garden seems more like a glimpse into canine paradise than a place of business. The 10,000-square-foot plot of spongy grass, crisp blue pool, and hammocks is where shutterbugs from Animal Stars Photography get their best work done, though. The team of dog- and cat-loving photographers follows pets around as they lounge in the grooming cabana or chase tennis balls into the pool. The crew also lures pups into a professionally lit studio with treats. After they capture tongues lolling happily and wagging tails, the photographers invite pet owners back to their studio viewing room to curate a collection of images. On-location shoots can capture a pet where it is most comfortable, whether on a worn dog bed at home or in a panic room that the vacuum can’t get into.
With over twenty years of experience collectively, the award-winning photographers at Protege have earned a picture-perfect reputation and a sterling online rating. The team at Protege Photography Studio believes photography is not about staging moments. Instead, they are committed to capturing subjects at their most candid to produce authentic results. They eschew generic paper backgrounds for their very own movie-style production sets. Families can explore the eclectic setups, including the Japanese garden, and kids stay engaged thanks to the studio's multitude of toys and rides, including the theme park-style merry-go-round. After the photo shoot, subjects make their way to the viewing room to choose their favorite images from their session.
At Pharaoh Studios, owner and master photographer James F. Edwards peeks through his lens to capture the complex and singular personalities of actors, models, and families. In doing so, he consults with his clients and incorporates their ideas when staging group portraits, senior pictures, or headshots. He can then touch up the best photos and transform them into specialty items, including posters and zed cards, which showcase an actress or model's finest photographs.
When not shooting within his professional studio, Edwards and his camera travel on-location and through time to encapsulate moments at weddings and birthday parties.
Based in a 7,000-square-foot loft with 20 sets for photos, the staff at Modern Love Photography offers clients a unique photography experience. The team is led by lead photographer, owner, and creative director Denise Birdsong. In 2015, she was named "Best in Show" by the Association of International Boudoir Photographers. She also teaches boudoir photography across the globe and was a featured speaker at the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International conference. Under her direction, the crew works to capture both candid and posed pictures. The studio, a member of the Professional Photographers of America, also hosts beauty portrait and boudoir sessions, utilizing a variety of sets and an ample collection of lingerie and garments. They've also been lauded by publications such as I Do Venues and The Knot for their on-site shoots.
