Tonya has been taking our pictures since she was working out of her home in 2006. She took our engagement and wedding pictures then has proceeded to take our children's photos as well as an annual family portrait. She has always done an excellent job and since she obtained her own studio several years ago the options and creativity have exponentially increased. She has always been willing to meet us anywhere for location shots and has always had excellent ideas. She has a wonderful eye for framing a photo.

Tonya took both our engagement and wedding pictures in 2006. She is an amazing photographer! We had a general idea of what we wanted but she was able to capture many more awesome pictures. She has a great eye. I was sold when I saw the albums she had designed for others and loved ours even more. She was very flexible and asked our input on the album design but we didn't need to change much since she had already done a great job. She is very reliable and talented and I am very happy I trusted her with capturing the moments of our most important day. I have recommended her to many of our friends since our wedding.

Tonya was so easy to work with. Very professional. She helped me to choose the best mat color and frame color/style to go with the wedding photo that I wanted enlarged to hang on the wall. She has a great eye for taking creative pictures. Just a wonderful person with a tremendous talent.
