What Past Tails of Gratitude Families Have Said


Amy A. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Absolutely love Adam and the team! They really go above and beyond throughout the entire process to ensure you have an amazing experience. The team was so great with Piper and she definitely loved all the attention, and treats, she received!


Michelle B. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Adam and Mary are phenomenal! They took extra time with us as our sweet Berlin was not a fan of the camera. They managed to capture the most beautiful photos of our beloved fur babies. We are very grateful for the memories and the timeless pieces that we will have forever.

Salina M. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

What an absolutely amazing experience! Adam and his team were super friendly and very experienced in working with doggos to capture their personalities through the lense of a camera. I will be forever grateful to have had this experience and the extra time Adam spent with me when we went to Sheldon’s photo reveal.
