Founded in 1981 by Mark and Maggie Smith, Empire Photography has been the recognized leader in graduation, sports, school pictures and event photography throughout Wisconsin and Northern Illinois.  From our Viewfirst proofing system, to our staff of experienced, efficient photographers, to our 100% satisfaction guarantee, it’s easy to see why Empire Photography is your best choice.

Our Viewfirst proof system for sports means there are no order envelopes to hand out before picture day and no print packages to distribute after pictures are taken.  Empire Photo will send proofs of the images we take so that you may view them before ordering prints.  This system also allows us to take several poses of each subject giving you a choice of different images to select from.  Print orders may be placed after viewing proofs and may be placed online, by phone, or by mail.  Print orders ship directly home in three to five business days.

In addition, all of our photos are covered by Empire’s 100% money-back guarantee.  If any parent or student is not completely satisfied with their pictures we will promptly refund the full purchase price.

Are you looking for a fast, organized and efficient photo day? Look no further!  Our staff of professional, full-time photographers and assistants will make sure that your photo session runs flawlessly.  We will even provide posers to help expedite the photographers and make sure uniforms, shoe strings, hats, costumes, etc. are all correct for an outstanding photograph.  One of our staff members is also available at the photo session to assist parents and answer any questions.

At Empire Photography we are committed to putting our customers’ needs first and offering only the highest quality photography and customer service at very competitive prices.  Our motto says it all,
