We Voted!

Today we celebrate our freedom and the responsibility to use it well.

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader.” – John Quincy Adams

Many thanks to all the veterans who dedicated their lives to freedom. Thank you for the volunteers who got up early and stayed late to make today successful. Thank you to everyone who took the time to get out and vote.

“Posterity! You will never know how much it cost the present Generation to preserve your Freedom! I hope you will make good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven, that I ever took half the Pains to preserve it.” – John Adams

Aqua Vita Photos on Display at The Hive!

The Hive is a brand new arts facility/events space located in downtown Jenks. We went out earlier this year to take some architectural photography of the Hive for one of our clients, GS Helms, who designed the building.

Which ended up being pretty awesome, because our photography of the Hive is now featured at the Hive!

Jenks is an awesome town that AV has been proud to call home for the past few years, and the Hive is just one more exciting thing coming to the area.
