About VIP

We Capture Moments that create memories

A Third Generation Family Owned Business

For over 70 years the Hayes family and their team has taken millions of photos capturing the memories of students, athletes, families, professionals and special events. Our years of serving the surrounding communities has taught us that photos are a way of seizing the moment and preserving history as it is being made. Photos are what keep the memories alive, no matter how much time passes. We love sharing the story of how it all began and the milestones we have accomplished along the way.
