Our Story
Through perseverance, love, faith, and hard work we've been married since 1982. We started our photography business from our home in 1985 photographing publicity head-shots and real estate. Then a friend asked Vance if he would photograph their wedding, and having never photographed a wedding he said NO. But they insisted, and from that first wedding, (he has a natural gift for working with people and his first wedding turned out great), he got more and more referrals. During that year we also gave birth to our first daughter, Corinne. One year later we opened our first studio in an antique shop, Eurasian Antiques, across from Ward Center. Quickly outgrowing that location we took the plunge in 1987 to move to a larger space at 2071 South Beretania Street, where we conducted our business for the next 20 plus years. We had 4 more children during that time; Christine, Chase, Rebekah and Caitlin, whom we home schooled, so it wasn't unusual to see them working at the "studio" helping with whatever needed to be done. After being in business for over 25 years and having photographed thousands of people from all over the world.
