About Us

Moonlight Color Lab is the second generation of family owned business that just celebrated its 25th anniversary last October. It is a “hand-on owners operation” since its inception in 1989 along with its team of highly skilled employees.

Moonlight with the great knowledge of its five founders has developed a reputation for the highest standard of quality in film processing, scanning, printing and customer service. Our business motto was “do the job right at the first time” from the first day as is still today.

Who we are

We've separated ourselves from other photo labs given our unique situation of being run by five owners that have their hands on every-day operation. No project or job goes out the door unless it gets the final okay from our owners on each and every step of the process. Having tight control over quality has been incredibly successful over the years.

We take pride in our record especially during the early years during the transition from film to digital. For our clients we made the transition smooth and fast despite the fast and rapid changes of the early years of digital technology. Our commitment to our clients is the backbone of our company. We've always known our clients by name and never by their account numbers. Our list of clients is a wonderful testament of our success and reputation in our industry.

"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything"
