We just wanted to thank you again for creating the most AMAZING Photographs of our special day... they are amazing! You captured the day perfectly and made everyone feel at ease. We will be able to look back at your pictures in years to come and remember what a happy day it was. You always deliver beyond expectations and we still hear the WOW factor when we share our pictures with family and friends. I've worked with Floyd in the past as he is my professional photographer. He has a great imagination and is full of ideas that he is able to channel via the images he captures through his work. There is no doubt in my mind he enjoys his craft and has put in the work to be the BEST that he is. We would highly recommend Floyd to anyone wishing to have their special day captured on camera or just to take Photos in general. His talent is timeless and next to none! - Joe & Nicole

I would like to take a moment to recognize and reflect on the exceptional skills and abilities that Floyd Menezes has demonstrated in the domain of photography. Having consulted Floyd to do some pictures and video of our facility, he turned in a product that exceeded expectation and was exceptional in both quality and artistry. Using a 360 degree rotation and high resolution he was able to build a virtual walk through of our command center that is not only beautiful but compelling. Technology has come a long way but Floyd has clearly mastered how to best leverage it. - Richard Cushman, Senior Director, Capital One

We were referred to Floyd through a mutual client and we are so happy that we used him for my daughter's senior pictures. He was incredible to work with and he made us feel extremely comfortable during our session. Most of all and more importantly, the pictures came out beautifully, the prices where extremely reasonable and the customer service was impeccable. Thanks Floyd! We will most definitely continue to use you for our portraits! - Amy Baptiste

Floyd displays a kind and approachable demeanor and both staff and residents enjoyed having him around. Once Floyd's photography business began to thrive we were ecstatic to have him come back to The Virginia Home and photograph some of our special events. Floyd has a natural talent in capturing individuals at their best. With his eye to detail and creative lens he has taken some incredible shots of our residents. Whether our residents are sitting pretty for a Ball portrait, fiercely swimming laps in the Aquathon or triumphantly crossing the finish line at the 5K Walk and Roll. Floyd's photos are both beautiful and inspiring. I enjoy sharing his photos with staff, family and friends of The Virginia Home. We use these pictures in publications, presentations and hang them proudly on our walls. We appreciate his dedication to The Virginia Home residents and always welcome him to our home for the next big event. - Rebecca Washburn, Recreation Therapist, The Virginia Home, Richmond

My father was a professional photographer for as long as I can remember and would always say "I need to do pictures to test this that or the other". I spent a lot of time in front of a camera, which kind of turned me off of the picture taking sessions. I decided that I wanted to do pictures as a Christmas gift and asked Floyd if he could help me make it happen. He worked with me to an unbelievable degree on getting it done. He did an incredible job with being able to capture exactly what I was looking for and had ideas that I hadn't even thought of. It was an AWESOME experience and I would highly recommend working with Floyd. He's a great guy and always follows through and up on everything. Floyd made taking pictures fun and that says a lot after having to get back into the picture swing for me. - Michele Crawford

After meeting with a variety of photographic restoration experts over the past few years both in Canada and the US, I had come to the hopeless conclusion that my family's precious antique photographs were never going to be enjoyed by others anymore. Their diagnosis were mostly the same "the damage was too far or the cost was out of my reach. The photographs were nearly one hundred years old and had not been stored in ideal conditions. Our family being very proud of our heritage and never one to miss a "bragging and teaching moment" caused the photographs to pass through hundreds of hands and the center of many, many discussions. The discussions involved the history of Canadian and American commerce, farming, Hollywood (specifically the western movies) and the romantics of a farm-boy turned cowboy "the real kind". Floyd's unique vision of blending history and photography is truly remarkable! He not only restored the photographs and placed them in a venue open to all people, he encouraged me to include personal hand-written letters and newspaper articles from that time period. We were so pleased with the result of Floyd's work and have received so many enjoyable comments and inquiries - that we are now researching extended family members and plan on expanding our family's photographic story on line and in digital format. - Michael Demers

Floyd has captured the most beautiful portraits of our residents at many of our special events including the Aquathon and The Ball. Despite the daily challenges of having a physical disability, The Virginia Home residents live with passion and enthusiasm. Floyd's gentle, compassionate personality enables him to capture these special qualities in our residents. His photographs have become The Virginia Home's treasures. One can find them on display at our facility, featured in our newsletters, and have been given as gifts to families and friends! - Jody Young, Director of Recreation Therapy, The Virginia Home, Richmond

Floyd has worked with the children and staff of Capital Childcare for two years. Always relaxed, happy, energetic and fun as he worked with different personalities....He is a true professional with stunning results. Floyd always presents an exemplary work ethic and quality product. I would recommend him highly and will have no hesitation in asking him back each year. - Phyllis Bradley, Executive Director, Capital Childcare, Richmond

I want to take this time to say "Thank You" for a job well done on the restoration you've completed on my family pictures. The quality is very professional and you didn't take any short cuts during this project. The turn around time from the conversation to the completion of the restoration is unmatched. "Thank you" again for assisting me in preserving the memory of my beloved Mother Ms. I.J. Green. I will refer you to my family and friends that may need some photography work in the future. - Andria Johnson

I greatly enjoyed my photo shoot experience. Mr. Menezes was a complete professional while keeping things fun. He had some great ideas that I would never have thought of and his attention to detail and lighting really paid off in the finished product. I have recommended Mr. Menezes to all my friends and family and will definitely use his services again in the future. - Gregory Lee
