Poetic Imaging for the Chic & Passionate

They say a photograph is worth a thousand words,
we say your images should be poetic.

My name is Adam Harpula and I am a Chatham Ontario, Portrait Photographer.

My goal is to help my clients express themselves. I love to be creative, but I am also content to keep things simple. I believe that a positive attitude and professional behaviour are the most important traits when serving my clients. I make every effort to deliver high quality photography, fast. My specialty is making people look good.

Guaranteed satisfaction on products & services
We are certain that you will be satisfied with our services however, we offer a guarantee to give our clients comfort and freedom to try our services with no obligation. If you are not satisfied with your photos we will arrange another session to improve the outcome or give you a refund. Full details will be available on your contract.

We believe in printing so much, that we offer a 6 month return policy and a 2 year guarantee on quality. In our opinion printing is like having a new pair of heels or handbag to show off to all your friends (or for the guys, it's like a nice set of rims on your car).

Cancellation policy
We offer the best cancellation policy in the industry. Most vendors have a strict no refund policy on the retainer fee. We offer a cancellation policy for any reason prior to 6 months of the session date for weddings and events. Full details will be available on your contract.

Fastest delivery in the market
15 day delivery for weddings and events. Compared to the industry standards of 45-90 days and longer during peak seasons. We believe service should be faster and more convenient, as well as high in quality. And we work hard to satisfy our clients. Portrait sessions are delivered even faster!

Best image back up system in the market
We have the best photo backup system in the industry. We make a separate copy of your images during the wedding day as we work. At each break during the day, your images are loaded onto our laptop and kept safe in a fire resistant, waterproof case in our trunk.
