Gary

As founder of PFP, everyone of my clients holds a special place in my heart. It is my goal to serve them the best I can, to make sure that when our time together is over, I have empowered them and shown them something special about who they are. The real beauty of photographs isn't how glamorous you looked or how we managed to get the perfect expression. The real beauty is how we can freeze a specific instant of time, one moment that can show how amazing you are. That is what I want  for every one of you: to feel empowered. To see yourself in a new way. To show you, through photographs, that you have the permission to love yourself. Unconditionally. To honor, accept, and celebrate your individuality and to tell the world, "This is me, and I am enough."

I am originally from Durango, CO and own a full time studio there as well.  Pictured here is me and my studio manager, Jenny.

Why PFP?

I'VE HELPED HUNDREDS OF FAMILIES CREATE LASTING MEMORIES THEY WILL CHERISH FOR LIFE.

OUR STUDIO IS ALL INCLUSIVE WITH HIGH RESOLUTION DIGITAL FILES THAT INCLUDE A PRINT RELEASE, SAVING YOU MONEY BY ALLOWING YOU TO CHOOSE WHAT YOU WHAT TO PRINT AT ANY LAB OF YOUR CHOICE. NO OUTRAGEOUS PRINTING FEES!

I DON'T BELIEVE IN RIDGID, ONE SIZE FITS ALL APPROACHES. I WANT EACH CLIENT I WORK WITH TO FEEL LIKE I'M WORKING WITH THEIR PERSONALITY, NOT FORCING THEM INTO A TEMPLATE.SESSIONS ARE ONLY LIMITED BY TIME, NOT LOCATION OR OUTFIT CHANGES!

I'VE BUILT TWO AWARD-WINNING, SUCCESSFUL STUDIOS, BOTH BY ENTIRELY FOCUSING ON MY CLIENTS AND THEIR WISHES.

Well before I knew who I was going to marry, I knew who was going to photograph my wedding whenever that day came.  Several years later, I found myself marrying the man of my dreams, and having the knowledge that Gary was my photographer helped put my mind at ease, knowing he was capturing all of our most special moments in a beautiful and artistic fashion.  We adore our wedding album and look at it frequently!
