He's an experienced, skilled photo restorer who I would not hesitate to reco...

He was very collaborative and kept in regular contact throughout the process to make sure I was happy. I was able to surprise my mother with gorgeous photos of her parents and can't wait to see them framed and in their rightful place of honor on her pi...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I had a number of old and significantly damaged family photos from the 1920s and 30s. There were large cracks through several of the images, including one of my grandparents on their honeymoon. The photos also were dirty and needed "cleaning."
