Here's the Keepsake story.
I founded Keepsake Photography in 1988. I was working as a software engineer for General Motors and doing wedding photography part-time. Business went well and I opened my first retail professional photography studio in Canandaigua in 1992.
Christine and I met at a photography conference in New York City in 1994. She has a degree in photography from Lansing college in Michigan and was co-owner of Expressions in Photography in Penfield, NY. We maintained separate studio's for many years. It was funny when some clients would say, "Hey, doesn't your wife have a competing photo studio across town?"
In 2011, Christine and her business partner of 22 years decided to close their studio and shortly after, Christine joined the Keepsake team!
