Comment: Francis is very professional, respectful, friendly, kind, and talented! He speaks English and French fluently, and he is a good communicator. His studio is also nice and spacious. The photo shoot we worked together on was really long, but he was patient and energetic the whole day. Plus, him and his beautiful wife were very nice; they made us feel comfortable and they even fed us throughout the day. It was a pleasure working with Francis and his team. I would definitely work with them again and I highly recommend him. Thank you for the beautiful photos, Francis!

Comment: Despite the fact that I had a whining ADHD boy along with me for the portraits; they came out very nice!  Francis, the photographer was very patient and understanding. 

I have a portrait now that is up on my livingroom wall that I will appreciate for years to come.  The photography looks professional and classy.  I can definitively notice the difference between these and the ones at Sears or JC Penny.  These were well worth it!

Comment: Francis took lots of time getting all 16 family members together and posing just right. Then he took smaller family groups. The photos look so good that it is hard to choose just a few. We were all impressed with the results!!!

Comment: I had a wonderful experience with Francis at Shoot Encore. He was professional, creative and very hard working. I would recommend him for any type of photographic need you have. For me, the concepts and ideas he came up with for my "head shots" were extremely helpful. I plan on returning to his studio to do more follow up shoots.
