One of the many positive responses we have received recently.. A great wedding day for Jana, an awesome and extremely talented photographer with mkphoto! Thanks Jana

Direct pasted from a client email:

Hi Jana!

This email is long overdue. Joe and I wanted to write you after the wedding and let you know what a great job you did on our wedding day. You covered all the events and moments, and handled our large bridal party and families really well. You and Brian were very courteous, professional and efficient!

And now that we have seen the wedding proofs online – WOW! I think we have used every glowing, positive word in the thesaurus to describe your photography work. And we have heard the same reactions from every family member and friend who have viewed the photos online. The photography is absolutely beautiful, with so much attention to detail. You have a great gift for capturing people naturally. We love every photo, and we really appreciate all the photos you snapped of family members and friends, especially our little nieces and nephews. You truly captured the emotions and feelings of our wedding day. We cannot thank you enough for all your fantastic work!

We look forward to picking up the proof book this week and starting the selection process for our album. There are so many awesome ones, it may be hard to choose!

Thanks again!
Beth and Joe Jackson

Congratulations to Maddie for turning 16 and to the great party she had in Philadelphia! Fun for all! She had an idea to have a backstage pass made for her invited guests. We did a studio shoot(Maddie had a great time!) and Jana came up with a really nice design for the BSP. We printed over 200 4″x 5 1/2″ passes, laminated them and ordered custom lanyards for the guests to wear them around their neck. Her friends loved them! It was the hit of the party. Fun, Fun, Fun! Thanks Maddie and Mom for including us in your celebration.

Tara, Jana, Angelique, Nina


Over two hundred Fifty Thousand (250,000) image files processed at mk photography in 2007! Wow! Just how did we handle all that precious wedding data? Dozens upon dozens of CF cards on the wedding day, (you bet) many large hard drives and one big server, (no doubt) several fast apple computers (yes several for sure). But most important it’s the WHO that was responsible for managing all those important files? My important and vital Team. We all work together to achieve one simple goal. To create a better experience for you and provide you with the very best photographs we can. All 2 million mb’s of your photos! The WHO is my awesome dedicated and extremely proactive employees. I am so proud of our team! Every file needed to be not only processed but backed up and yes backed up 3 times as a matter of fact. We cannot be too careful when it comes to your wedding photographs. EVERY image is irreplaceable and must be protected and treated with very special care.

Many thanks to Jana and Angelique our full time employees and Tara and Nina our training interns that have come to us via U of D. Their outstanding attitude and dedication make it all happen here at mkp. And I have to give Jana a special thanks for creating and streamlining our studio digital workflow process. The success of any full digital studio depends on an excellent digital workflow and Jana has gone out of her way to insure that we are efficient as possible and precise when working on your image files. She meets every challenge head on with a positive attitude. And she really enjoys working on solutions to solve problems; and did we mention that she loves what she does!
And… joining our team in 2007 is Angelique Buckley. She has proven herself as our new studio manager and graphic designer. With her extensive computer skills and confident leadership she has transformed our studio into a very organized and efficient workplace. Creating accurate client databases and making everything more user friendly, she continues to surprise me everyday! An amazing job! She also has completely restructured our album design and layout design process. Which translates to her spending more creative time with you and your custom album layouts.
Thank You for a successful 2007! I could not have done it without all of you!
