What do you like most about your job?
Witnessing their tears, their laughters, their giggles, their mixed emotions, their heart and even their Wow's as they watched their photos and films. These are more than the thanks that we received. We love seeing our clients so happy with their stories.
What questions do customers most comonly ask you? What's your answer?

What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?
That we are a bunch of Professional Storytellers. We stimulate your senses through photography & cinematography to make you live and re-live the special events in your lives. We don't do videos but footage of your stories. We take our work at heart because this is our passion. With that passion it motivates us to elevate our standard as members of PPA (Professional Photographers of America) & WPPI (Wedding & Portrait Photographers International).
Do you have a favorite story from your work?
A client with a 3 year old son has been diagnosed with end-stage cancer. So we decided to create a story of her and her family so that the son would be able to remember how beautiful, caring and loving his mom was when he gets older. The Mom passed away and her memories lived on.
Q & A's
If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade?
Maybe we wish that there are people who can make us feel like a celebrity with all the glitz & glam even for one day and will not cost us a lot.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Check if they are licensed. Check their work, their style, and their products. Check videos of several clients that they have. If they offer video, check if it is videography or cinematography (huge difference). Check photos of several clients, albums, enlargements, CD's / DVD's etc.. Are they under any organizations that promotes high standard of their work? Do they have a studio? ASK a lot of questions about the credibility, expertise and professionalism of the provider.
How did you decide to get in your line of work?
MOTIVATION. That's how we got into this line of work. We got motivated looking at how beautiful our children are as they were growing up. We just want to make time stand still so that we would be able to enjoy longer the moments that we have with them. This is the perfect way to make time stand still.
