What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
My love of the visual arts. it’s amazing when capturing a moment in time whether it be photography or cinematography and see it over and over again. Returning you back to that beautiful moment in time. That’s what inspired me to start Flashing Lights Media, Inc.

The interaction with so many people and like minded individuals. But my favorite moment is when people see their images for the first time, and a jolt of joy comes to their face.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
I think the best feedback was when i did a college graduate photo shoot and the mother saw the final pictures. She began to tear up and say “this is the most beautiful picture i have ever seen.”
Growing up, Yakov Faytlin was used to seeing his father with a camera attached to his face. Yakov’s father, a photographer, was always snapping away at something, and he took the time to show his son the ropes. Photography soon became a passion for Yakov as well, and today he boasts more than 25 years of experience capturing weddings, in-studio portraits, and more. Now at the helm of his own business, Yakov photographs families, engaged couples, and children in his studio or outside at his clients' location of choice. He sometimes uses props in his portraits, such as violins for the musically inclined, teddy bears for young children, and twigs for the outdoorsy types.
Brian Masserman shot his first wedding at 15, armed with a Kodak Instamatic. Though it wracked his nerves to wait a week for his photos to develop, he knew he'd found a calling. A member of the Professional Photographers of America for more than 20 years, he now captures special occasions and intimate moments after consultations in which he tailors his photographic style to his customers’ needs, following his personal mantra: "There is no such thing as a perfect photograph, but there are such things as perfect moments."
During the more than 600 weddings they've photographed, Brian and his two staffers have varied their approach, sometimes snapping candid pictures of revelers and other times relying on a more journalistic feel. His skills stretch to include family portraiture and commercial work, and his senior portraits crackle in black and white, color, or mixtures of the two. After photo-shoots, he employs a keen sense of design to help customers to decide their print style, and even travels to their homes to find a place to hang their prints.
Brian always seeks to develop concrete relationships with customers and has even chronicled the milestones of one client from her bat mitzvah to her wedding day. To share his expertise, he hosts intensive workshops in which he drills students in camera settings, composition, and abbreviated editing techniques. He and his staff believe in the visual power of physical prints and frame and restore photos and love letters written on cheeseburger wrappers. They also print photographic images onto more eclectic material such as canvas, wood, and aluminum.
The Boudoir Loft's owner and photographer Kimberly Williams captures artistically framed images within her private Rochester studio. Though she concentrates mostly on sensual boudoir shoots, Kimberly also snaps wedding photos and portraits of kids, teens, and the various developmental stages of prized hydrangea bushes. Kimberly also flexes her Photoshop skills as she edits each photo, erasing flaws and enhancing natural features to create high-quality, alluring images. Additionally, her full-service, onsite salon and event space Blowdry Divas offers airbrushing makeup services and professional haircare, and both companies join forces by combining makeovers and glamorous photo shoots for bachelorette parties, birthday parties, and girls’ nights out.
