In the past, most church directories programs have been run by large, out of the area photography companies, with no real ties to the community. Roy Dressel Photography has been in the Visalia area since 1984. With deep roots in the community.  If there is a question or an issue, we are right here to take care of it, and do it quickly.

If your doing a printed directory or have gone to just doing an online one, we can help.

We offer printed directories, printed by a professional printer that has specialized in church directories for years. We do the work of putting the directory together, work closely with you to give you a book that you be proud to give out to your congregation and prospective members.

Our turn around is quick. Once you approve the final proof, we deliver the directories in thirty days, not months like other directory companies.  The directories can be provided at no cost to the church if you meet our requirements; if not, we will give you the cost to print the books before we begin.

Have you stopped doing a printed directory?

Having issues with your congregation not participating in the new online program. Our online-only program is never any cost to the church. In fact, you can often get a rebate when doing an online-only program.

Just like the printed directory, we come to your church, set up our portable studio, and set times for your congratulation to come in for their portraits.

Whether it’s a printed directory, online, or both, our sign up process is easy. We offer online signups. Families sign up for the date and time they want and get an email confirmation; they even get an email reminder the day before. We ask that you announce the program, hand out our provided flyers, and put up our provided posters to promote it.

No high-pressure sales.

We often hear that that “big” companies salespeople often use tactics better suited to a used car lot then the church. None of that here. After taking the photos, families take a look at and select the image they want. At that time, we offer specially priced portrait packages for people who wish to purchase. If they do not, we thank them for their time, and we are on to the next family.

If this sounds like something you would like to look into, give us a call at 559-734-2110 or email us at roy@roydresselphoto.com to set up a time to talk. We can come to your church, or you can come to our downtown Visalia Studio.
