The company was established by Ron and Wayne Yary. After the brothers attended USC on football scholarships, Ron was drafted #1 in the 1967 NFL draft by the Minnesota Vikings. Ron played with the Vikings for 13 years and in four Super Bowls. In 2001, he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Yary Photography has built its business on customer satisfaction and word-of-mouth sales. Because we deal with the same schools and civic groups year after year, the recommendations of past customers become this year’s sales. Yary must keep its customers satisfied in order to earn their repeat business.
Operating our own lab enables us to provide consistent service, quality control and savings to our customers.
Yary has invested in new digital technology thereby ensuring quality service. We can now enhance your photographs with a variety of graphic designs.
