About Us

Illuminate Alternative Creations is the work of Shaun and Jenna Reese. The husband and wife photographer team use various methods to create images that range from dark fantasy to edgy fashion. They have been published in several magazines including a cover feature for Gothesque Magazine, Tenebrous Magazine, and Wild Heart Magazine. In 2013 they were awarded photographer of the year in Cincinnati by RAW Artists.

In 2014 they became contributors to Arcangel Images. They also had the opportunity to take behind the scenes photos on the set of Honeyspider, an indie horror film.

Jenna tends to create photographs with a cleaner, high-contrast look. She relies heavily on colors and lighting to set the tone. As a visual artist and studio photographer she has years of experience with coming up with new ideas and finding unique ways to capture the moment.

Shaun is a photographer and digital painter, so he tends to create photographs with a darker, more painted look. He also uses digital painting to enhance photographs and create the desired atmosphere. With years of experience as a digital painter and illustrator, he vividly brings his ideas to life.

Both are always looking for new challenges to improve their skills. Their work ranges from simple photographs that use minimal editing to photomanipulations that require hours of digital painting. They adjust their style and editing based on the client's needs and can provide traditional or artistic photography, as well as other digital services.
