Photographer Laura thinks of photos not as keepsakes or freeze frames, but as the doorways to memories, made immune to the ravages of time. She captures her clients’ life-altering events on film, providing them a way to step into their own past and remember growing up, getting married, giving birth, and raising a family. She organizes her online photo gallery with such descriptors, a glimpse of the entire cycle of human existence in one drop-down menu. After taking shots, she transforms pixels into both prints and retouched digital images, depending upon client preference.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I work hard to create unique experance for my clients. All imagery is a work of art. To achieve the look each of my clients want out of their images, I spend time with them to get to know what they are wanting. I educate my clients to know when it is best to get the images they are wanting to have.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have been taking photos my whole live. Once I stepped out of the corporate world, I decided to start my photography full time. I want to make sure to be affordable for all. Nobody should have a wedding day go by, undocumented. Photos and the story of the day,
will live on longer than we will.
What do you love most about your job?
I love meeting new people, seeing all of the amazing wedding locations there is. I love to do the traveling to all parts of the world and taking part in a couples special day.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
From the mother of a bride (she was the one that hired me): "She met with the bride and groom and knew their needs beforehand. She is amazing as a person and photographer! She dedicates so much time and we cannot thank her enough.." Oh and seeing their faces when they view their images. Best EVER!
After years of watching
her father snap pictures, Antoinette got the chance to be the photographer. She
was 10 years old, and her father lent her his old Honeywell Pentax and a roll
of black-and-white film while they were hiking in the mountains. Seeing the
world through a lens triggered a new passion for her. She joined the
yearbook staff in high school and even bought her first “real” camera before she
bought her first “real” car. She now spends her days capturing unforgettable
moments during weddings and family photo shoots.
Brimming behind a curved glass exterior, painstakingly crafted bisque pieces perch on sleek black squares while original drawings and paintings cascade across the light-strewn walls of The Chartreuse Muse. Inside, local artists showcase their pièces de résistance and helm classes in the dynamic space's art school. Sessions for all ages and levels tackle a bevy of media, such as clay, charcoal, and acrylic paints, and inspire students to draw, paint, or create mixed-media collages of their tax-return documents.
Bearing the titles of Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman from Professional Photographers of America, David and Ally McKay embody the keen vision and aesthetic prowess that separated good photographers from great ones. They share these skills during classes at McKay Photography Academy, where they train eyes, fingers, and imaginations to work in tandem as a snapshooting dream machine. Their classes help aspiring photographers progress from neophytes to seasoned pros. When not busy instructing the next generation of shutterbugs, David and Ally also devise photo safaris, which send small teams of photographers to capture shots of famed landmarks including San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge; the Lincoln Memorial of Washington, DC; or Yosemite's 60-foot statue of Yogi Bear.
