Studio 3 Productions documents and enhances weddings with an arsenal of services that includes photography, videography, DJing, and lighting. A team of photographers and videographers carefully documents each wedding-day tradition, from the exchange of rings to the firing of the flower girl out of a cannon, producing keepsakes that range from simple scrapbooks to high-tech films replete with montages and other special effects. Meanwhile, the company’s LED lighting can add pizzazz to receptions, with curious customers able to view a small-scale simulation in advance at the studio.
Alternatively, portrait sessions at Studio 3’s studio or on location capture authentic flashes of subjects’ personalities as they pose solo, with loved ones, or with pets. After shoots, the studio’s framing services accent prints, equipping subjects with a high-quality wall decoration to replace their collection of unpaid parking tickets.
In the midst of wedding-day chaos or birthday-bash excitement, City2City Productions’ photographers and videographers capture memories that might otherwise be missed. Its DJs even spin the soundtrack for special occasions. They also commemorate entire seasons in life through family portraits, engagement photos, and senior-year photo shoots with friends.
A job in corporate finance spurred Joe Mulvey to start his own business?one that would allow him to create a comfortable environment for both employees and clients. So in 1986 he opened the doors to Classic Media Productions, Inc. and has been creating and transferring film and media ever since.
Beginning with duplication services for companies such as Frito Lay, Classic Media?s techniques have evolved over the years, from creating web-based content to transferring recordings from antiquated hardware onto up-to-date formats, such as DVD and Blu-ray. Aside from transferring existing film, Joe and his staff also create tender memorial photo montages and videos in honor of loved ones or special events, elegantly capturing a newlywed couple?s first kiss with each other and then their ensuing kisses with the ice sculpture.
Olan Mills Inc. provides families with high-quality portraits, continuing a mission that was established more than 75 years ago by founder Olan Mills Sr. Skilled in the art of capturing infants, children, families, and bunny-ears-giving ghost orbs on film, Olan Mills’s experienced smile snappers will take a series of poses amid a variety of backgrounds and lighting options. The studio is equipped with a selection of props—including numbers for birthdays, toys, and boxes—and patrons may bring their own photo-enlivening items from home. The resulting photos find their way to prints in natural color, black and white, or sepia tones; they can also be immortalized in the studio's signature Old Masters style, a canvas brushed with highlights to re-create the look of an oil painting. Like the gentlemanly mariners of ages past with their full schedule of sea battles, the photographers welcome appointments, but do not require them.
Choosing canvases, signs, or wineglasses to brush and decorate, groups of visitors to The Painted Party gather around tables for BYOB painting classes. At the behest of an experienced art instructor, each painter daubs, blends, and Jackson Pollocks their canvases, following a series of easy-to-follow directives. They can take the resulting work of art home at the close of class.
