About Us

Lasting Memories was established by portrait artist John Cottone as an "on-location division" of his portrait studio, Images Photography in Mt. Morris NY. John is one of the most sought after professional photographers in Western New York.


John created Lasting Memories because he saw the need to "raise the bar" by providing higher-quality portrait standards and impeccable customer service for area schools and businesses.


John sets his school and event photography apart from the competition by utilizing his over 20 years of expierience from his professional portrait studio.Through extensive training John's photographers are some of the best available. In addition his studio uses cutting-edge backgrounds and props as well as fashion style lighting and contemporary posing techniques producing portraits with a unique look that clearly stand out from the competition.


At Lasting Memories we offer the finest on location portraiture available and we do it at prices that families can afford. We specialize in providing a positive and fun picture day expierience, while offering innovative photography products, efficient picture day workflow and fast turn arround.


Today, John continues the tradition of providing high quality on-location photography. His studio was one of the first to become fully digital in New York. All of his photography is meticulously color managed and digitally mastered. John's clients state they are amazed at how natural looking his studios' photographs are; many comment they cannot believe they were captured digitally.


At Lasting Memories we are easy to work with, providing wonderful customer service and efficient order fulfillment that is a challenge to find these days. We hope to have the privilege of being your studio of choice when your need arises.
