A lovely story from a customer

Hi Kim,

My Story:

I was in search of a great photo album for my wedding photos.

After incredible search, walking through Newcastle & unable to find one I had liked – I took to the internet to broaden my search.

It was then that I found Framer (Lion Studio’s) in Salamander Bay.

Loving the idea that I could talk to an actual person rather than venturing into the unknown on the internet, I took a drive (which happened to be 10 minutes from my house) and walked nervously through the doors and into the shop.

It was here that I was greeted instantly by Kim. I can tell you, it was nice to see a smiley face that would help me in my decision making on buying a photo album. Now, because of her warm friendly nature/excellent advice on buying and putting a photo album together, I went on to purchase some more valued items that I never dreamed I would own, to add to my collection of unforgettable wedding pictures.

Due to my new husband and I not being quite financial enough to be able to purchase items outright – Kim was flexible in accepting payment options, to which I am extremely grateful for.

Now, after months of back and forth visits, we have wonderful prints that are each finely tuned and individually picked to suit the photo album I had purchased. A canvass photo, which Kim made up to suit my tedious measurement requests – which I must say, the end product is perfect. And also, we have a beautiful ‘custom made’ frame with two of our wedding photo’s hanging on our wall – something so beautiful, I still get amazed when looking at it!

All in all, I highly recommend Lion Studio’s for their outstanding and impeccable service standards on all photo/product delivery. It is very refreshing to receive quality service with a smile.

And it doesn’t stop there….

Jason’s wonderful parents/in-laws of mine saw our wedding prints and asked where we had got them done. I told them about Kim (Lion Studio’s) at Salamander. Lyn (Jas’s mum) + her brothers and sisters took it upon themselves to have an old photo re-printed of their father with friends who played at the Nelson Bay Golf Course back in the late 60’s. Kim not only re-printed this photo, but resized and framed to perfection. Lyn and family then donated the framed picture to the much-loved Nelson Bay Golf Club of Nelson Bay! And because of this donation, you will now see it hanging up on the wall near the main bar as you walk in.

Thank you, Kim,

You are one amazing lady!

I have already, and will continue to recommend your business to all. You will definitely see me walking through your doors again and again.

Kind Regards

Natasha Duggan
