At last! We decided to make our first post to follow our 20th wedding anniversary.
Special times deserve special recognition. Though we have had the site up for some time now, choosing the appropriate forum to start the blog was a tough choice. What could be better than a celebration of this magnitude!
We thought we would throw in some shots taken on our trip to the Eastern Caribbean.

Hope you enjoyed these images from our trip!
Why are pictures so important?
Though we as humans have excellent memories we need an image of a past event to recall those feelings and events hidden in our minds. (Remember that song you hadn’t heard for years, then when you hear it again not only do the words come back, but also the emotions that you had tucked away in the recesses of your mind!)
Here is an example:
Lower South Falls – Silver Falls State Park Oregon
I can still feel the mist on my face and hear the crash of the water from this trip. While exploring some of Oregon, we visited with a couple whose wedding we had photographed. Stephanie took us to Silver Falls State Park, where we hiked the loop and shot this picture of the Lower South Falls, among many others. The memories would surely fade without the images to look back on.
For the same reasons, an artistically crafted portrait preserves your memories that may otherwise be forgotten.
Our reward is the look of delight on our client’s faces as they see the results of their experince with us, whether in a custom album or wall portrait…after all, Life is Art!
See you again soon! (Sooner this time, promise)
David & Deborah
