  • Ashley Daniell - Absolutely LOVE these shots! They totally show your personalities and, wow!, what a great backdrop! And Betsy, I am so jealous that you can still fit into your dress! You look beautiful!

  • Mandi - first thing I thought when I saw the first trombone picture was “WOW” and then I thought”I didn’t know they did all the photography for Val Kilmer’s movie (The Salton Sea, if you haven’t seen it a very good but very sad story). And then I saw Betsy and I thought you two could make money just taking pictures of each other, who needs weddings! And then I thought, I wonder if they will still take my picture when Julia Roberts calls for her next set of headshots…Spectacular you two, betsy you look stunning and Jeff I had no idea you were such a good actor! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m running out of exclamatory praise for your work, soon I’m just going to start making up words!
