We had our family portrait taken at our home by Forrest and Amy Cooper. We experienced the utmost in professionalism and creativity. They work very well together and our portraits are beautiful. Cooper Studios also produced a custom print of our favorite photo. They sized it to compliment the proportions of the design of our home and had it printed on gloss metal, which looks unbelievable. We get so many compliments. Coopers also photographed the interior and exterior of our home for us. The shots are "jaw dropping". Forrest even returned with custom built equipment to get just the right shot of the exterior. We are more than pleased with Cooper Studios and encourage anyone to talk to Amy and Forrest about a family portrait or architectural photography.
