A Few Facts About Our Portraits, History, and Unique Weddings
“It’s not just how many
it’s how many come back!”
I'm old and I don't like very many things but I liked having my portrait taken by you at Nashville Image. Here's why:
1. Professionalism. I expected a schlock, "bang bang", "in and out" job. I did not expect a true professional using the camera. Every idiot with a cell phone thinks that they can take a good picture. They do not appreciate the talent involved in taking a "good" picture but I deeply do. This was a pleasure. I've worked with a lot of talent over the past 40 years and Suzanne is a talent with whom that I enjoyed working.
2. Business. The business was first class in providing props, extremely fast and efficient service and the nuances of quality (business card, supplied hanging material, attitude).
3. Value. I got what I paid for. The picture frame was of excellent quality and price. I did not blink nor regret the price.
4. Quality. I did not have a desire to purchase a picture to put on my wall. I will put this picture on the wall. By the quality barometer, I would like this portrait to be displayed at my funeral.
Thank you for a wonderful experience. I plan on coming back with my son, his fiance and grand dog for a family portrait. The dog will not be a problem but I would not be adverse to hazard expenses for bringing in two comedians.
