5 Star professional all the way. Knowledgeable about their craft. Yes craft
... not just snapping a camera. Kathy Strauss is inventive and unique. I had a family photo session with my family. The weather did not cooperate for the beachfront venue and we had to change the plan at the last minute. No problem.
ImageWerks met us at the new location and the session went off without a hitch. Kathy's camera skills are up there with the best photographers available. And once your photos are ready to view and choose she is patient and more than able to help you select the best ones. She knows her stuff. I will use ImageWerks for my professional photography needs and cannot recommend them highly enough.
Girlfriends Day Out at Apricot Lane Coastal Grand Mall today Sept. 8, 11 - 3.

I was recently asked by a client if I could do a bit of restoration to a beloved family photo. I was able to clean it & do a bit of color correction to it... including enlarging the original.

when asked if you can mimic the process of an old B&W photo that was done of the Dad... & they want it done of their 4yr old daughter... my answer....... SURE! (only difference... I just didn't do it in sepia tone :-) ) hope my client likes the results!!!!


it's humbling when a former photography client shares how much she loves the photos that my partner, Sally Wood Photography & I took at her wedding 8 yrs ago!!!

"photos were the most important part of the wedding planning for me, and I wouldn't have trusted them to anyone else! Still my favorite photos 8 years later!"


Happy .... to my 'punkin, @steph.luvah
