Welcome to Who We Love Wednesday!!!! This feature is not sponsored or anything like that, it’s just a way for us to spread the love to awesome local businesses!
Our fourth feature is The Photo Loft!!!! The Photo Loft happens to be the gorgeous place we call “home-away-from-home”~ it’s the location of our studio!
How does one come into 2700-square-feet of photographic splendor, you may ask? Well, luckily for me, two local photographers put their blood, sweat, and tears into the loft two years ago, and invited me in last year as a part of a separate-but-equal artist cooperative. Simply put, we all operate separately, and we all have our own niche in professional photography which is really neat. We all share a love and passion for photography, but our strengths and interests vary.
Lee Shelly and Craig Collier are the founding fathers of The Photo Loft.
Lee is a master of all things commercial. His knowledge of studio lighting is seriously impressive!!!
Craig takes amazing portraits and product photos.
I joined The Photo Loft last fall with Mike Allebach. Mike has an eye and a passion for all things and people who have taken the less-traveled road, alternative weddings, tattooed brides, if you are quirky and fun and a little non-traditional, Mike is your guy!
To say I’m loving the space is an understatement. It’s beautiful, warm, and allows me to utilize natural light, but has also allowed me to dabble in studio lighting, thanks to Lee and Mike’s encouragement and lessons!
If you’re a photographer, I understand that you are probably drooling by now. I totally get that, I was drooling two years ago when I first visited Lee in his new digs. Guess what? We rent the studio!!! You can check out current rates here. Contact me if you want to have a tour or schedule a session there, you will not regret it, it’s seriously that amazing!
If you are a client or potential client, call me- this is the perfect spot for newborns, baby sessions, birthday sessions that include a smash cake…you get the idea! It’s pretty much perfect for everything!
