Storytelling without words

Photography isn't just taking a picture, it's creating a piece of art using a combination of art and science. It's creating memories, telling a story throughout your life; your visual history. Photography has always been a part of my life. My parents, Steve and Mary Gueller, started this business in 1980. My parents have shared with me the beauty, love and value of family. I love people, bringing out the best in them, creating relationships with them and watching as their family grows. First hand I witness love, how the new husband holds his wife, how parents look with wonder into their newborn's eyes, their interactions with the now toddler, and throughout their childhood and teens. I love creating keepsakes for each family that will become treasures of the heart. This is what photography is all about. In 2014, my father retired and I had the opportunity to take over the family business. I feel lucky and honored to carry on the legacy they started thirty-six years ago.
