For many Americans traveling abroad, Europe's centuries-old charm sparks feelings of love. That’s what happened for Carissa Hoopes, and while she didn’t fall for a mustachioed bread maker, it was during a trek across the pond where her passion for photography solidified. After returning home, Carissa was inspired to pursue a professional career, first learning under other commercial and wedding snappers, and eventually opening a business with her husband, Chris. As he manages the production and design details, Carissa takes the creative lead, capturing the tender, genuine, and naturally funny moments clients have when they aren't aware they’re in her camera’s viewfinder.
A quick glance between newlyweds or a sleeping baby's peaceful expression. These moments are often missed or quickly forgotten. But not when Brenda Miles is nearby. The photographer cements such moments in
pictures that end up perched on mantels and hanging from rearview mirrors. Brenda’s passion for posed and candid photos is evident as she follows brides on their wedding day and photographs expectant mothers, newborns, and families. And when not clicking away at a photo shoot, Brenda happily teaches camera newbies how to photograph like a pro. During a three-hour class, students learn all the bells and whistles on their own camera as well as how to use different sources of light to create better pictures.
Tiffany Tagle focuses on boudoir photography almost exclusively, celebrating the freedom of expression that it provides her subjects. When not spending time with her family or cheering on her favorite football teams, she works to improve her craft while taking provocative, tasteful boudoir images in her studio, in the privacy of her clients’ homes, or on fairground rides. She also provides complimentary beverages as well as styling services and consultations before sessions. Tagle customizes sensuous settings to suit different clients, preparing shoots with moms-to-be or curating a masculine approach for guys. Her expertise also extends to outdoor, on-location couples photo sessions.
Old Fashioned Photo Booth is more mobile than you might think. In fact, it can travel up to 150 miles in order to attend parties, weddings, and other special events. When it arrives, the booth doesn't waste time mingling or sipping punch: it gets right down to business, spitting out color or black-and-white pictures. The booth is multi-talented, too, since it's capable of producing both traditional photo strips and postcard-style prints emblazoned with personalized labels. After the booth says its goodbyes, hosts receive a CD loaded with all the photos from the party, which they can use to post shots on social media or toss into a crowd of potential new friends.
