"Hi John. I wanted to thank you for the wonderful job you did on my grandfather's Montana family homestead picture that you did last summer. My sister-in-law did the framing as she works at a wildlife art/framing gallery north of Montello, my hometown. My mother, (as well as my brother and sister-in-law) was very very pleased and surprised and found just the place to display it. I hope you and your family are well and that the economic times are being kind to you!! Thanks once again, I appreciate your expertise and fine work!! Take good care."

Event and Class Reunion Photography?

"We really had a delightful (and spiritual) Class of '65, reunion! Thanks for being so accommodating that day - I thought that it was especially gracious of you to stand back for a minute and let all the friends and relatives snap their personal pictures BEFORE you took the professional one!  I have usually seen photographers just get irritated with that sort of thing - it spoke volumes to me as to who you are! Thanks again - it is so GOOD of you to go through the extra trouble of identifying everyone in the picture, so that those classmates who couldn't attend the reunion will have a list of who those 40-yr.-aged faces are!"

- Gloria Wilde, WA Alumni, Crivitz, WI

- Pam and Mike C., Galena, IL.

"When I walked into the lobby and saw the four frames for our former pastors and their wives I was thrilled. When the idea of 'portraits for our pastors' was first suggested I thought we could do something more. But I didn't realize all that was being planned with the framed gifts. Now I can't think of anything more appropriate for our former pastors and their wives to remember their Buckeye family. Thank you so much for sharing your skills and time to make our 30th anniversary such a memorable celebration."

Chad was very comfortable and his senior pictures show his individualism that is a look all of his own. Thank you."

We have been extremely pleased with the service and care Walcott Studio has provided each time. My two teenagers were relaxed and enjoyed their photo session. Plenty of time was reserved for us so that we felt that we got the best photos of them taken. The time taken to help us pick out framing for our finished portraits was also a welcome service. We appreciate using Walcott's and will continue to do so in the future. Thanks for the great service!"
