Welcome to Sumner Photography…

A smile is nothing to keep to yourself. At Sumner Photography, we help share smiles – among students, parents, and school staff. We are a leader in the School Photography business. When you need dependable, studio-quality school portraiture, call on Sumner Photography. Our unmatched service begins well before picture day, as we take every step to guarantee a positive and professional experience for everyone. Our full-time professional photographers not only know how to capture outstanding images, but they also relate easily to the students and keep them smiling. A great student portrait comes not just from a happy smiling face in front of the camera, but a fun, seasoned professional behind it.

Our customers expect the very best, and so do we. That’s why we use today’s best and most innovative photography equipment. That’s how we produce better smiles than many of our competitors. With the addition of our new state-of-the-art processing and print lab we ensure complete quality control resulting in the highest level of customer satisfaction.

If a Picture’s Worth a Thousand Words,

What are Thousands of Pictures Worth?
