Testimonials

We've had our annual family photo taken in Charlevoix by Aartvark for a over decade now. We like to mix things up each year and be photographed in different locations around town. The owner, Terry, works with us to capture a great series of photos in whatever setting we choose. He always gets our children to laugh and smile, too! The end product is fantastic and the prints are always completed before we head back downstate.

Our wedding was on the hottest day of the year on our deck at @ 12:30pm; YOWSER! They didn't flinch, totally Top Notch! They displayed Professionalism in every aspect! Knew where to be and when to be there! Even had the bride laughing during this supposedly to be low key non-stressful event! Photos oh SO Lovely (I even loved a couple of me!) and videos beyond our expectations. I could not imagine having any others now!!! Thank You So Much Terry, Lynne and Tim! Lottsa Love & BIG HUGS

We have a condo in Charlevoix, Michigan and a home in Florida and the majority of the artwork that we have is from from Aartvark Studio. We have found the work to be dramatic and a wonderful representation of the area. When we look at the images when we are in our Florida home it reminds us of how much we enjoy our time in Charlevoix. The images are timeless and will be something we proudly display for many years. We look forward to getting more artwork acquisitions from Aartvark Studio and Gallery in the future and honestly, we couldn't be happier.
