Have you heard of Wedding Wire? Martha Stewart's latest entry into the huge wedding market. The difference? Talented, well respected professionals in all areas of wedding service give brides better choices.
Welcome to our site and our studio...that's right...a real studio for almost 40 years (see below) with a real staff, real hours and outstanding customer service. Our site is extensive and because it is filled with images, tends to be a lengthy load if you are on a dial-up modem....but be patient...we think it's worth the wait. Lots of things are different about our site. You could be down the road in Naples (FL) or across the Atlantic in Naples (Napoli, Italy) and after viewing our site, you would gain a complete understanding of our art, products, and services, whether you are a bride-to-be, a senior, or a corporation looking for an annual report. Our pages are VERY deep (long). That saves you from forwarding to a zillion different pages. We have opted for content rather than glitz...although you can see glitz with the commercial and wedding slideshows on our site. All too often one sees mediocre photography disguised by jazzy web-design. Our clients can see beyond that. Shopping for a real Wedding Photographer? Don't miss our completed albums under "The Finale!" within our Heirloom Wedding Master page. Seniors can some very hip webshows and see some YouTube uploads. (And by the way, did we mention how much fun we are to work with?) Enjoy the images!

Since 1971 Gary W. Sweetman (FDPE, FSA, CPP, Q.Th) has been providing consumer and commercial clients with innovative, dynamic photography and digital imaging for Southwest Florida delivered on time and on budget.
In 1984 we moved to our 4000+ sq. ft. studio which was the first photography studio conceived and constructed on Florida's West Coast by Architect Wm. C. Zoller and won an AIA award for its unique and functional construction. Many of the specialized spaces benefit portrait and business clients with features that speed production and enhance the product. We have be designated #1 Photography Studio by the Bradenton Herald on several years. In 2006 we received the Manatee County Chamber of Commerce's Annual Beautification award. Long before it was fashionable to be a green business, Mr. Sweetman environmental concerns and conservation have played a significant role since 1971.
