Bill Buchelt, élan Photography's lead photographer, calls upon his 20 years of experience and a portfolio boasting such subjects as Michael Jordan and Julie Andrews to capture patrons' personalities in flattering photos. Buchelt photographs families, individuals, and seniors posing naturally in a comfortable, professional studio or among the verdant greenery of a nearby park. For a more specific shoot, the studio's photographers travel for on-location portraits and corporate sessions and offer complete wedding packages to capture couples' vows, dances, and cake-induced food comas.
For 27 years, the female-owned-and-operated Concept One has utilized state-of-the art equipment and boundless creativity to develop clients' ideas from concept to completion. Catering to everyone from large corporations to mom-and-pop businesses, the talented team can help write a script for a video, cast it with professional actors or Julliard-trained penguins, provide directing, lighting, and sound services, and edit the final outcome. They also convert old-school, analogue media to a digital format, and can duplicate CDs and DVDs, complete with color, on-disc prints, inserts, and shrink-wrap packaging.
