Just recently had my senior photos done by the Gums, they did an AMAZING job. I had a hard time deciding which ones to pick out from the many stunning photos they took! They do a great job and are wonderful people in general! Highly recommend getting any type of photos done by Photos By Gum! 😁


Tashia (Senior Photos)
I'm so excited to have asked Photos by Gum to do my daughter's Senior portraits!
They did a fabulous job making her feel right at home and confirming everything I've told my daughter about her beauty and personality for years. Just a side note, Lol, my daughter always says, "But mom, you are suppose to say that, your my MOM!" UGH! THANK YOU Photos by Gum for making her day on a cloudy fall day bright with affirmation it's not just mom that sees it!

Paige & Jerico (Wedding)
The Gums are wonderful!
They take their time to get to know you so they can help accomplish your vision and dream for your photos. They are both very friendly and professional - making you feel comfortable for your photo shoots and keeping true to what you want, not just stock poses that everyone does. I LOVED working with them and am so glad we were able to have them as our photographers!!

Best Experiences

The Gums have such a great dynamic and their positive energy is contagious! Since the day my fiancé and I met them, we have felt very comfortable and beyond pleased with our choice in wedding photographers.

Our initial consult began by being invited into their home and shown beautiful examples of their talent and works. We discussed our visions and style for what we wanted out of our pictures and without any further research in photographers, knew that we had found ours!

Our engagement photo shoot was what dreams are made of. We shot at a small airport using the plane my fiancé flew us in on our first date! The Gums had not used planes in any shoot before, but researched and had so many great ideas; they really made us feel like stars!

Words cannot truly describe how much I love our engagement photos.  I cannot wait for our wedding day for an endless amount of reasons, but one major reason is that I know the Gums will capture the love and joy on our special day in a way no other photographers can.

Stefanie & Ronnie (Wedding)
" We received both discs, and we can't thank you and Steve enough for helping us capture our memories so beautifully!! Both of our families bawled (happy tears of course) when we showed them the music slideshow. The song was perfect, the timing was perfect, and we loved the photos you chose! We feel very blessed that we found Photos By Gum and were able to have you both there with us on our special day. We weren't sure what to expect when we decided to elope, but we had an amazing trip, and now we also have GORGEOUS photos to share with our loved ones. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts! "

I love my wall portrait and I am sure I will enjoy it for many, many years. A special thank you, to you Steve for including the 8 X 10 of my special little girl with her Great Grandma. I still can't believe I have a Great Granddaughter. Your special thought is greatly appreciated. Thank you. The whole experience working with the two of you has been a wonderful one. I am still playing my CD over and over again and remembering the special memories it brings to me. Also, thank you so much for covering for my children who treated me to the Special Wall Portrait without my knowledge. You were sweet not to let me in on what was going on. Tears in my eyes when they told me they were all giving me the Portrait for my Birthday. How lucky can a Mom get.
You are truly special people. Special people are hard to come by these days. Thank you again for everything. A Thank You Hug,

Harriet B.
Just a short note to let you know the photos you created with that "touch of genius with a camera" arrived safely, and already up on my wall. I am so pleased and proud of them. I want you to be proud and certain that you are using a God Given talent (both of you) and you are meant to be doing what you are doing. If I get back to the Ozarks next year - I would love to have you do a close up portrait of my face. The vanity of an old women, but I would cherish every wrinkle or saggy flesh that shows the hard struggles I have survived in my long but happy life. Gratefully;

"I'm not photogenic and I was totally shocked when we seen the pictures that Steve took...they were AWESOME! And when our photos arrived they were even better! I highly recommend Photos by Gum!!!!"
