Family photographs aren't typically associated with museum-quality prints. Not so at WOW Art & Photo Studio. Using the giclée printing process on canvas, the studio creates vivid, long-lasting images that enliven tables and desktops for years to come. In addition to their printing services, they specialize in custom photography, covering everything from environmental portraiture to passport photos.
Photographer Samantha Melenka has a studio, but she mostly shoots on location––at venues that range from grassy fields to wedding receptions. For wedding shoots, she often collaborates with her husband, photographer James Melenka. Together, they capture grand tableaus such as the bride getting ready, or the uncle falling asleep. Through Samantha's other work, she captures the bond between families, a child's innocent grin, and the chemistry between newly engaged couples. Her photo booths, meanwhile, allow subjects to run their own shoots, controlling the booths' 18-megapixel cameras via touchscreen.
It seems as though Instant Imprints can slap a logo on just about any kind of promotional item—its stock of customizable goods includes T-shirts, banners, key chains, duffel bags, and more. Performing all of their services onsite, the promotion specialists screen print and heat transfer logos to up the profile of clients’ businesses and organizations. Instant Imprints fills orders big and small, from fundraising-minded nonprofits to sports teams in need of better uniforms than last year’s potato sacks.
Coquitlam Centre, perched at the epicentre of the Tri-Cities,
encompasses 910,000 square feet of shopping across two floors. Stores run the commerce gamut. Shoppers can stroll past windows chock full of the latest fashions in stores such as H&M and Aritzia or gear up for a 5K at lululemon and Sport Chek. To forestall any impending temper-tantrums, they host a kid's play park, stroller rentals, and free shuttle service around the Upper Level.
At Tellier Photography Designs, professional photographer Susan Tellier immortalizes memories with in-studio photo sessions, specializing in portraiture of children, families, and expectant mothers. The studio also updates and revitalizes old, damaged pictures with photo restoration services.
Lagoons. Cobblestone streets. Fairy tales. A good photograph should be able to transport the viewer to another place in time, but the photographers at Jassal Photography Studio do so almost literally. They pair their subjects—be they couples, children, models, or boudoir clients—with vivid, realistic studio backdrops that depict locations from high-resolution town squares to underwater landscapes. This is just one of the innovations the team of fine-art photographers at Jassal has made over more than 20 years honing their talents: they’ve also spread out their talents to on-location shoots at weddings and other events, creating museum-quality printed canvases and frames, along with head shots, portraits, and boudoir sessions. For a more whimsical or a different look, Jassal has a wide variety of fairtytale clothing and props, along with creative backdrops.
