Case study

Working with The School Photography Company has been really easy. They were able to provide all the information and assurance we needed. They were happy to accommodate a trial day initially so that we could see how it would work.

All of the team that have attended our sites have been really friendly and welcoming to our customers and we look forward to welcoming them back next year!
