What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I started Magnolia Media over 10 years ago because I felt as if other designers in there area were over charging and nor providing quality services that businesses deserved. So my focus is on designing artistic, fully responsive websites, with content management system and advanced SEO that actually get customers to call you.

    A great family experience!
    Skip met with us on our schedule at our choice of venue. We enjoyed his humor and the professional approach to our photos. All questions were answered and photos delivered as discussed.

    Great professional, punctual, easy communication and great work!
    Skip was just outstanding!!!. he arrived on time, was patient with us and provided great suggestion for our family thanksgiving portrait. He took more than 150 pics, including some while we were getting in place which really look so natural. this was a great hour and I feel was a real bargain!!!But the best is that 2 days afterwards we already have our pictures!!! This is truly great work, we are so thankful that we were able to do this. I will use Skip again on other occasions. I recommend him very highly. He is truly excellent. PS: I contacted Skip only 2 days in advance, the communication was excellent..

    Great, Fast, Professional! Totally reccomend!
    Skip, Thank you so much. You have been so professional and you delivered exactly what you said you would. You have exceeded our expectations. I definitely recommend you to clients considering a photographer. Hiring you from another city I was skeptical. But you were absolutely our best choice! Thank you!

    Highly recommend
    We met Mr. Covan and his wife. They were both very friendly and professional. Mr. Covan kept in touch with me the entire process and got our pictures back to us the next morning. We loved his work.
