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 the spring of 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?" At the time, it was better just to keep things separate.
In 2011, Christine and her business partner of 22 years decided to close their Penfield studio and shortly thereafter, Christine joined the Keepsake team! Together, Christine and I are honored and blessed to have helped literally thousands of local families over our 30 year careers preserve their precious family memories through our eyes, heart, and lense.
We invite you to experience Keepsake Photography. We promise to give you our very best efforts, to treat you with respect and provide you with portraits you will be thrilled to own all in a fun, unpretentious environment. Promise.
