Stephen & Caroline’s April 9th Parkersburg WV Wedding was an unexpectedly cold and snowy Spring day in Parkersburg, West Virginia. The beauty and warmth that filled the day more than made up for the weather outside. The day began with getting ready at The Blennerhassett Hotel in downtown Parkersburg, followed by ceremony at Trinity Episcopal Church. Lots of laughter, tears, and good times were had at the reception which followed at The Parkersburg Country Club into the night. There were so many memorable moments throughout the day and I was honored to capture it all for them.

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Koval!!!

I have to mention that one of our images was shared on Mark Zunino‘s Instagram!

This past Saturday, May 7th was Prom night for Parkersburg High and Parkersburg South High Schools. I had a blast doing Prom Portraits for 10 lovely couples before their big night at Southwood Park in Parkersburg. Although I haven’t traditionally offered Prom sessions every year, one of my amazing Class of 2016 Spokesmodels talked me into doing it this year and I am glad that she did.

I wanted to create a simple yet elegant outdoor set and I was very pleased with how it came together. We battled the rain a little on and off but pulled it off seamlessly.

Thank you to all of these beautiful couples for coming out for the shoot!

 

This post is all about Senior Portraits. It’s hard to find the words to sum up my adventures with the Class of 2016 this past year. We had a blast and made some stunning portraits. Each year I am honored when teens and their families choose to have our studio capture this monumental time in their lives. Our goal is to make this experience fun, relaxed, and memorable.

It was hard to choose just one or two from each session so I am sharing all my favorites. This year we also had the opportunity to shoot Seniors in New York City and Myrtle Beach! Destination Senior Portraits are my favorite!

Best wishes & congrats to all of this year’s graduating seniors, you rock Class of 2016! You can also find more images on our facebook page here.

4 Year Old Ritchie was so much fun to hang out with and photograph back in March. Him and his Mom met up with me at the Surfside Beach Pier. Ritchie played with shells, flew a kite on the beach, ran and played and had ice cream during his portrait session. He was the perfect little model.

What a beautiful young lady who totally rocked her Senior shoot. I also photographed her sister’s Senior portraits a few years back. Katelyn brought lots of style to her session and had her makeup done professionally. Katelyn is a bookworm, loves fashion, helping with her family’s business, and laughs a lot.

 

We photograph a lot of babies and we love it!  Madison was amazing during her session with us.
