Teri Dinnius has earned her CPP award.  That is a Certified Professional Photographer, which means that she has taken classes, passed written tests as well as print exams to meet specific requirements of the Professional Photographers Association.  

In the beginning, she was fortunate to study under two Master Photographers as well as a Master Photo Artist, learning the “Old School” techniques of lighting, shooting, developing both in color and black & white.  Not only a photographer, she’s a superb photo artist and does retouching, hand oil coloring, airbrushing and restorations.  Taking a break from the Corporate environment, she ran a very successful home business while raising three children with her Husband, John.

Never putting her camera down and continuing her education, her film background has given her a solid footing for the new wonderful tools of digital photography.


Michael Dinnius take wedding photos and grew up in the darkroom, playing with cameras and exploring art all through childhood.

He majored in Photography and Art History at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. He has knowledge and experience with film and has also expanded to the digital technologies. Michael is creative and fun at work and aims to bring joy to his customers with his photography. His wife, Cassie, can often be seen working with our Brides or helping with a family shoot.
