About Us

Welcome to the Lake of the Ozarks. We are Steve & Cindy Gum, full time wedding and portrait photographers. Our goal is to provide our clients with a rich and enjoyable experience along with beautiful wall art portraits and heirloom albums. In this digital age where most images are never printed, our goal is to create memories through art that will be cherished for generations.

Our dream is to create precious memories in a tangible form like photographs, wall portraits, and albums that you can hold in your hands and pass on to future generations. As a professional photography studio, we believe our purpose is to preserve your family memories. These custom works of art are an investment for you and generations to come.

Through continued education and training, we strive to deliver the best products possible. With new software to help clients see what their own wall would look like with a beautiful wall collection before the decide, to new photographic techniques. We never stop learning.

Digital images come and go. Remember those 5 ¼ floppy disks or the 3 ½ hard drives? Digital storage devices will corrupt or become obsolete. Who knows what will come next? There is one thing you can be sure of, a print is tangible, it is art, it is a lasting, classic, and timeless gift.
