Nick Gillenwater – Owner

Nick has worked in the photo industry since 2005 and has been a photo enthusiast even longer. He’s visited all fifty states, four countries in Europe and is your go-to resource for fun things to do when visiting Hawaii. He loves his job but would gleefully leave all of it behind for a chance to play on Survivor. What he loves most about The Print Refinery®: the opportunity to be creative on a daily basis.



Joy was working with Pantone color before it became cool to decorate your home with. She has two amazing kids and loves being involved with rescue animals. She thinks ‘barnacles’ is the best word, but only when you say it like a pirate. What she loves most about The Print Refinery®: carefully capturing and preserving memories from simpler times.



Samantha’s experience behind the lens stretches back more than a decade and she’s excited to share with you her love of putting together lasting keepsakes of your memories. Her family still owns a farm and she often helps with her mother’s online business. What she loves most about The Print Refinery®: helping families tell their story in a way they otherwise couldn’t (and it’s a fun place to work!).
