40 YEARS worth of experience!
Is your media preference film or digital?
We were the first studio to embrace the changeover to digital. We even changed the name of the business to add "& Digital Imaging" in 2000. We opened in 1971...that's a LOT of experience....over 1300 weddings photographed in the Tampa bay area, throughout Florida and several international destination weddings.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
More than you want to know :)

Not if the wedding is within 50 miles of our studio.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
How soon do you want them? Often, with destination and international clients, there are particular deadlines that must be met. And we meet those deadlines.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
All of our plans INCLUDE a hardbound proof book with ALL images AND a CD with all the images in slideshow and webshare formats.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
Forever! They are yours.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
We are proud of our images....that's why you are looking at my site. We would never post something very personal (such as pre-wedding dressing sessions that are intended for a groom's eyes only). We also respect the privacy of our high-profile and well known clients.
Will images be available for viewing online?
If you like.
What kind of albums do you offer?
Check out our website under album styles.
When will the client get the final album?
About 4 weeks after you approve the final layout....which you have a great deal of input into...We NEVER used album templates where your album looks like every other.

Gary is very responsive and a nice man, however I feel as a wedding officiant, he could be a little more prepared and professional (when he announced us as husband and wife, he had to ask our last name...in front of the entire audience).

Gary W. Sweetman is the most talented, professional, creative visionary of a photographer I have ever worked with. My wedding day would not have been complete without him, and the moments he captured are beyond priceless. He took the most breathtaking portraits outside at our reception, while up against a rapidly approaching sunset and an incoming electrical storm, seemingly effortlessly. He was personable, calming and an absolute a pleasure to work with. His expertise is undeniable, and you will quickly find that he genuinely has a gift for bringing out the utmost beauty in every photograph. His prices are very reasonable, and his work is truly something to admire for the rest of your life.

I would like to thank you and your staff for making our wedding day (at the Ritz Carlton, Sarasota) magical and beautiful! The pictures are outstanding! I have been sharing our proof book with friends and customers and they all comment on what beautiful photographs we have from our wedding! Of course, the amazing sunsets just added to the ambiance!

Thank You for doing such a wonderful job of capturing our Wedding Day. The only problem is we can't decide which ones we want for our album! We are quite fortunate to have the challenge!

It was such a pleasure working with you. Thank you for listening to our ideas and taking the time to get to know us. Your capturing of the essence of our wedding day will give us the perfect keepsake memory! Thanks so very much for your great work! Judie Feilen-Kocsis

Gary Sweetman is a visionary who will not only capture every unforgettable moment of the wedding, he will design an elegant and modern wedding album that will recreate your entire wedding day every time you look at it.

Gary Sweetman was our photographer for every step of our wedding process. He shot our engagement photos, bridal portrait, rehearsal dinner and our wedding. In addition, we worked together from each coast of the country, we lived in California and we were getting married in Florida.

Gary's team is smooth and efficient and are also very considerate of any unique dynamics that may exist between close friends and family. His team is very professional and an absolute please to work with.

The entire experience we had while working with Gary Sweetman was priceless, we could not have had a better experience with any other photographer.
