Comments from former clients. You can see the originals of these and more at the studio.

From: Adrienne Daves Duiett - Recommendation sent to me to show prospective clients.

" I would recommend Mr. Havard to all brides who want a remarkable memory of their wedding. The pictures are the best part and they will make you smile and laugh forever. My pictures were so great that I could not choose just 150 of them. If you are looking for the best and want quality pictures, choose J. Havard. I chose the biggest package and one of the great features is the video. They caught all aspects of the wedding and reception and I can play it over and over. Thank you Mr. Havard for making my memories last forever."
