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 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.

Now booking for Class of 2017! Get in touch at mcolemanphoto@gmail.com or 304-295-PICS.

 

 

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.

I am offering a limited number of Myrtle Beach Portrait Sessions in April, May, June, July and August. If you are planning to vacation in the area and would like to schedule a portrait session with me please email mcolemanphoto@gmail.com for dates and pricing.

Had a blast with this couple back in late October! They are eloping to California this month! Looking forward to photographing their Reception in Marietta soon! They are such a happy couple, pleasure to be around!

This month we are offering in-home “Home for the Holidays” sessions where we come to your home and photograph your family by the Christmas tree, and around the house. Had a great time at the Branham’s home. To book one of these sessions before the end of December, call us at 304-295-PICS!

Dreaming of warmer days today as I share these images from back in July from my Sweet Sixteen/Surfer Chick session with Lauren. I am excited to head South again this coming summer to do her Senior Portraits in Charleston, South Carolina!

Spent some time with Silas this week for his 3 month session and had to share a few, along with some favorites from his newborn session back in September.
