from bride Katy..fall 2009

Gary W. Sweetman is the most talented, professional, creative visionary of a photographer I have ever worked with. My wedding day would not have been complete without him, and the moments he captured are beyond priceless. He took the most breathtaking portraits outside at our reception, while up against a rapidly approaching sunset and an incoming electrical storm, seemingly effortlessly. He was personable, calming and an absolute a pleasure to work with. His expertise is undeniable, and you will quickly find that he genuinely has a gift for bringing out the utmost beauty in every photograph. His prices are very reasonable, and his work is truly something to admire for the rest of your life.

from Judie & Tom...March 2009
"I would like to thank you and your staff for making our wedding day (at the Ritz Carlton, Sarasota) magical and beautiful! The pictures are outstanding! I have been sharing our proof book with friends and customers and they all comment on what beautiful photographs we have from our wedding! Of course, the amazing sunsets just added to the ambiance!

Thank You for doing such a wonderful job of capturing our Wedding Day. The only problem is we can't decide which ones we want for our album! We are quite fortunate to have the challenge!

It was such a pleasure working with you. Thank you for listening to our ideas and taking the time to get to know us. Your capturing of the essence of our wedding day will give us the perfect keepsake memory! Thanks so very much for your great work!" Judie Feilen-Kocsis, Married 11-17-07

from Betty..."Thank you so much for a most pleasant association in connection with our daughter's wedding. I have really enjoyed working with you. The usually boring and up-tight photo sessions were made to be fun for all; as a result we have some of the best family photos ever had taken. The only problem was having to choose our pictures for the album. Every one was so good, it was hard to eliminate any.

from Jamie..."Gary did an excellent job and took some incredible photographs. We gave him a list of pictures we definitely wanted and he went above and beyond. He was a lot of fun and really helped moved things along so we didn't have to spend the entire evening doing pictures. Our final album exceeded our expectations."
