More than 40 years ago, Harry J. Hoenselaar chose individual hams, cured them in his secret marinade, and smoked them over hardwood chips before offsetting the earthy flavor with a crisp, sweet glaze. To this day, the staff still makes the signature bone-in hams one at a time and glazes them in the shop. In addition to the eponymous victuals, the ham denizens turn their braising prowess on similarly delightful platter toppers, including turkey and barbecued pork.
The hammery's kitchens also whip up classic side dishes and desserts, such as the sweet-potato souffl?. For less formal feasting, party trays and packed lunch boxes fuel business meetings, backyard grad parties, and lengthy end-zone celebrations.

Stills then shoot out on the spot for subjects to collect or give away to potential suitors. Within a day of the convocation, Empire Productions uploads snapshots to a password-protected online gallery, and hosts receive a compact disc loaded with the same photos.

Two major life events spurred Experience Photography's resident shutterbug, Joshua, into transforming his picture-taking hobby into a career. The first event was becoming a father, which led to purchasing tons of professional-grade equipment so he could document his daughter's growth. Soon thereafter, his mother passed away. While sorting through her belongings, Joshua only found a single portrait from his family's 30 years together.
Since then, he's dedicated himself to preserving the special moments of others, from engaged and newly married couples to families and high school seniors. To ensure that folks have plenty of copies, Joshua preserves his clients' favorite images as digital files, as well as color or black-and-white prints.
