We are a husband and wife team with more than 25 years of photography experience and over 40 years of marriage. There’s just something about being in love with someone.

For me it started back in the late sixties, I bought my first camera while I was deployed in Vietnam. It was then I was bit by the photography bug and have thought about it every day since. I met and married my wife Kathy in 1971. She’s an artist, she’s been telling stories by sculpting clay for most of her life. She has a beautiful insight and I’ve come to depend on her and her inspiration. We have two grown children who have found success in the music business as well as both owning small businesses.

Over the past 25 years there isn't much we haven’t seen. We started in the days when you actually had to shoot on film and then physically develop it. These are the analog days of film. Today’s world is digital, high definition video, digital photography and powerful computers. I have fully embraced today’s technologies and spend my time learning and refining my techniques in both physical composition and digital enhancements.

We are a small business. We take pride in both our work and relationships. There are no hidden agendas and no surprises. We care about our clients and we are simply here to serve. We would love to meet with you and become your photographers. If you have any questions, take some time and call. You’ll be calling our home so we’ll be answering with a simple “Hello”. Read less

Very disappointing experience. Sent them a check for a down payment for reception, and a month later they sent the check back saying "they forgot the had promised to do a wedding that day". Very unprofessional.

I guess I was in a no-win situation. Breaking my word to the first person or breaking my word to the second person. I felt it was important to keep my word to the first person. Yes, it was my mistake to book you as well yet, it was a mistake and I did explain to you the reason and I was honest. Not sure I deserve this kind of review.

They are amazing people. Easy to communicate and work with. They make you feel like you are more than just another wedding. The pictures were fantastic and we loved all of them. A great feature that they provide is you get full exclusive copyrights for your photos so you can print them at Target, Shutterfly (they make a site for you), WalMart, etc. We would definitely recommend to anyone and would use again in the future.

Wonderful experience! Working with Always over the Top was both fun and efficient! Generally I am very camera shy, but they made me feel so comfortable that I was striking poses left and right! It was a very fun session! In addition, the photos and video were ready within one month of the wedding and they turned out amazing. We especially appreciated receiving the files and having them preloaded onto Shutterfly! I'd recommend these guys to everyone!

Dennis and Kathy were great to work with. We have received so many compliments on our photos and how wonderful our photographers were. They worked with us and offered suggestions to help make our day stress free. We were originally going to do outside shots before the wedding but it was too cold and windy so they set up everything inside at our venue and the shots turned out great. They also offer a variety of services to meet your needs including photography, videography, and a photo booth! We chose photos only plus the photo booth and have no regrets! The photo booth was a blast and people had so much fun. They provide great props and people get to take some photos home with them. Dennis and Kathy work very hard to help you in any way they can. We had a few issues with some of the photos after the wedding but they were promptly fixed and we are completely satisfied? We recommend this photographer for your wedding. In fact, another relative booked them for their wedding after seeing how great our photos were!
