Adilfa Ford is the owner and president of Don Polo Photography Inc., a fine art portrait and wedding photography studio in business now for over 16 years.
Adilfa prides herself on exceptional customer service and the best quality product in the industry. That and her exciting and dynamic personality have made Don Polo Photography one of the intermountain area’s leading portrait studios.
Adilfa is a past president of the Intermountain Professional Photographer’s Association (IPPA) and served as a volunteer board member for eight years. She is also a member of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) and Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) and has been featured several times in their monthly magazines. She currently serves on the Heart Gallery committee to promote adoption through professional photography and believes very strongly in business giving back to the community through service and charity events.
Adilfa was born on a farm in La Luz, Venezuela without electricity or running water. She was raised by her grandparents and named her business for her grandfather who taught her about integrity and honesty in life and in business. He could not read or write but people said that when he gave his hand to seal a deal that was better than any contract. The only photographs that Adilfa has of her mother and grandparents, now deceased are the ones she took after becoming a professional photographer. One of the reasons that she became a professional photographer was to educate her community on the value of professional portraits.
Adilfa has won many awards for her work and been featured in several national photography magazines. Adilfa and her business partner, husband Russ Ford both speak fluent Spanish and have taught photography seminars to photographers all over the world. They have photographed over 800 weddings on three continents and love to travel. Adilfa’s favorite quote is
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt within the heart.”

I recently took advantage of the goupon deal for a sitting and 16x20 print, with my 4 children ages 9 to 11 months. As you can imagine a difficult age with baby, but Adilfa was wonderful and patient with him and my nervous older children.Sent on 06/29/2012
Their home has been turned into a gorgeous, very roomy and professional studio and gallery showcase. The are very good at answering calls, making an appointment easy, and getting your prints at a timely manner. I was very impressed with the high quality of the prints and very thankful for the extra help they went to insure my satisfaction.
I would highly recommend Don Polo for any person or family looking for high attention, detail, and professionalism in their portrait experience.
I will not be using any other photo studio but them in the future.
