Don Polo Photography owner Adilfa Ford named her business after the grandfather who raised her on a rustic farm in La Luz, Venezuela. The only surviving pictures of her late mother and grandparents were taken by Adilfa herself as she honed her shutter skills and nurtured the seeds of photographic passion into a blossoming love of the visual arts. Accompanied by her husband, Russ Ford, Adilfa travels the globe to teach photography seminars and add to an impressive resume of more than 800 weddings, returning to her Taylorsville studio to snap more portraits of familial love and newlywed bliss.
