    Provided very professional service. The pictures he took were perfect, exactly what we wanted. He was very easy to work with and our end results were wonderful. I look forward to hopefully working with him again one day.

    I was a little unsure of using Doug for our photos because he can be a pushy salesman when he's trying to get you to sign with him, but I was very glad I did! We had an evening wedding and our pictures turned out beautifully. Everyone looks so good, even those who tend to look awkward in photos, he was able to capture them very well.

    He uses REAL film, so he only took about 300 pictures (and I had a hard time choosing between those, I can't imagine how my other friends who had over 3,000 could choose theirs!).

    Doug is a little expensive, but I would definitely recommend him to a friend.
