"Being certified means a lot to me. Coming from an IT background, I always had to have several certifications proving my proficiency in my craft, just as doctors, lawyers, and mechanics do. The CPP process was strenuous. Passing a technical knowledge exam and having my professional work reviewed by a panel of long time veteran photographers was nerve racking, but knowing they feel our studios work is up to par with some of the best photographers in the country means that our clients can know we don't just take pictures, but that they can count on us to provide consistently stellar art work for their homes no matter the situation. We our proud of our studio and want to show the public our qualifications to be the best photographers possible for our clients."
