The eye behind the lens at Capture the Moment Photography has been photographing weddings for a decade. Photojournalistic, traditional, and modern photography styles help wedded couples forever remember their special day, from prepping for the nuptials to cutting the cake with the Samurai sword. The staff also sets up photo shoots for families, kids, and graduating seniors.
At Digital Images, technician Brian Fouch specializes in transforming VHS tapes into modern formats. He can transform an old home video into a sleek DVD, for example, or an array of other digital variants.
When she was eight years old, Nichole Conard’s grandparents gave her the gift of a camera. Since that day, she’s seen the world through the eye of her camera lens. She worked for other photography companies, earning promotions and publication, before she finally realized her dream of opening her own studio, RedRock Photography. When the business grew too big for Nichole to handle alone, she turned to her sister-in-law, Jennifer Baldwin. A passionate shutterbug and photojournalist, Jennifer joined the company as a co-owner and photographer. Today, Nichole focuses on the studio's Wichita branch while Jennifer maintains the Emporia branch.
Today, the sisters-in-law are busy shooting all types of portraits. Nichole has amassed more than 20 years of professional portrait experience, and Jennifer’s been shooting professionally for six years, allowing them to draw from a wealth of experience as they capture family photos, maternity shots, and one-person portraits, as well as their specialty: children’s photography. Sessions at their studio are private and unrushed, and outdoor shoots capture images in a single natural background. During Cruise sessions, the photographer and subject travel around, stopping to take photographs with unique locations, striking landscapes, or curiously grinning cats.

Master photographer Trey Allen boasts a resumé of national awards and the experience of snapping shutters for nearly 30 years. He brings that expertise to portrait sessions that frame subjects with copiously colored and styled studio backgrounds or five acres of gardens, wildflower fields, and stone patios along the Little Arkansas River—though he can also travel to a more personally significant destination, such as the site where a couple shared their first meatball sub. Trey readies subjects for each shoot with extensive online tips for session preparation, and reveals the fruits of each shoot at a proofing session as early as the next day. From there, patrons determine which shots are worthy of graduating to one of Trey's prints or digital-image CDs prepped in-studio by his highly knowledgeable staff within a month after the shoot.
Husband-and-wife photography team Christina and Aaron Patton established Boudoir by Wallflower, a studio dedicated almost exclusively to boudoir photography, to capture the beauty in women of all shapes and sizes. In an op-ed for WomensFocus, the Pattons described boudoir as "about building confidence and discovering a side of yourself that you have either forgotten, never knew existed, or just don't let out enough." During shoots, the photographers provide their subjects with 12 different sets and a collection of more than 500 garments, including lingerie, shoes, and peep-toe tube socks. In this assemblage of video confessions, clients speak to the Pattons' professionalism, their experience with boudoir, and how comfortable they felt during their shoots.
