Hi! I'm David Summerlin. My wife (Gail) and I, own and operate Summerlin Studio. I must say it has been a priviledge to be a photographer in the Joplin area now for 28 years! We don't take for granted the wonderful people through multiple generations, that have chosen us over the years to be their photographer. We have now been around long enough to photograph many of our clients as newborns up through senior pictures, their wedding, and even their own newborns! Wow! So will we pamper you from the first time we meet you? Will we take the time to get to know you and your style so we are able to create the most amazing photographs possible? Do we have a spacious modern store front studio that's easy to find? (be careful of photographers that don't. Photographers come and go like the weather nowadays) Will we go the extra mile for you on the day of your session/wedding? Well of course! We look forward to not only being your photographer, but also your friend!

"Getting my senior pictures done by David was amazing! I couldn't have felt more comfortable, and he really brought the real me out in my pictures! He was very good at taking the things that I had brought and comming up with an awesome background! I loved getting my senior pictures by David!" Shala -Columbus KS
