Photo-Van

Best Photographer
Stephanie Ray Photography

You’d probably expect most wedding photographers to be supportive of same-sex marriage — after all, it means more business! — but for seasoned wedding and portrait photographer Stephanie Ray, it’s a passion. “Same-sex weddings are a personal favorite of mine, because it reminds me that love comes in many forms and all love is worth celebrating!” says the 15-year veteran. But it’s not only weddings she enjoys. Ray also operated The Photo Van, a mobile photo booth she personally converted about four years ago. It comes with costumes, props and mostly, a sense of fun. So you don’t need to be engaged to enjoy working with Ray — you just need to like getting your picture taken.

Nailed

Best Nail Salon
Nailed Nail Bar

You might call working as manicurist a growth industry — after all, we all have fingernails we need to trim regularly … or occasionally, claws we need to sharpen. But there’s more to a good mani (and pedi!) than looking well-groomed and not snagging on your socks. And that’s service. Nailed Nail Bar owner Tyson Nguyen believes in pampering his clientele with luxurious surroundings, nice snacks (champagne anyone?) and a menu of services that make you feel not just that you’re taking care of a task, but actually being treated like the queen you are.
