Breathtaking, perfection, and exquisite - These are the words all brides long to hear when reminiscing about their weddings. A fabulous photographer who captures those special moments makes the reminiscing all the sweeter. Photographer, Jamie Long has an extraordinary eye for detail and a passion for photography. Capturing a special moment or preserving a scene of beauty is what drives her to create stunning images of those once-in-a-lifetime moments. Her Virginia based company Mirage Photography, specializes in non-traditional weddings & portrait photography with an emphasis on creating unique photographic principles that mirror their client’s own.
Their style has been described as modern and creative yet classically clean and full of life. This comes from Jamie’s belief that personalizing the experience for her clients results in highly unique images all their own. In fact, Mirage Photography believes in this so strongly that they only accept a limited number of wedding appointments per year. Mirage Photography is all about helping you create your individualized fairytale.
A fan of trivia and a self-proclaimed news junkie, Arnie Bermudez is a Tucson, Arizona based freelance illustrator and political cartoonist with, in his words, “a warped sense of humor”. His goal is to be a full-time millennial viral cartoonist with his work spread across social media and news sites. Arnie says. “The ability to communicate thoughts and ideas through cartooning across the world at the click of a mouse makes being timely and topical that much more significant.”
Arnie claims that he did try being a serious artist complete with beret and beard but the inability to grow facial hair coupled with the humorous irony of his life caused him to constantly wear a cynical smirk that didn't go over too well with the artsy hipster community. Alas, in a fit of sarcastic despair after stumbling into a college newspaper, he was bitten by the cartooning bug and hasn't looked back since. Arnie has worked for the Tucson Citizen as their cartoonist, and was the youngest member of their editorial board at the age of 26. He is also a featured Contributor to Fox News Latino. Arnie currently works for The Tucson Sentinel, an independent local non-profit news site.
Arnie is currently seeking syndication and representation to realize his dreams of creating a viral news storm with his art.

Ar Tnt has been doodling ever since he was just a tiny four year old boy. As the years progressed, scribbles slowly started developing into features and figures and soon after, cartoons began to emerge. It was at this point that Ar Tnt knew this was what he was meant to do with his life. If there was ever a story of creative evolution, this is it.
As an architect and cartoonist, Ar Tnt believes that life is too short to be taken seriously and his cartoons invite you to enjoy the lighter side of life with their whimsical notions and lively influence. Ar Tnt enjoys his work as a cartoonist in part because cartoons take on lives of their own and impact people on a personal level. But mainly he does it because it makes him smile and hopefully puts a smile on your face too.
