Chase ~ Class of 2015 Senior Model

Musselman High School Senior Portraits ~ Martinsburg, WV Photographers

Meet our Musselman High School’s Senior Model, Chase! It started to downpour right before our mini session was scheduled to start, so we spent a good part of the time sitting in our cars waiting on the sun to come back out like the Weather Channel had promised… Our mini session turned into a super short macro session, lol! We still got some good shots, and I’m looking forward to a full senior portrait experience with Chase to show him off more! If you go to Musselman, be sure to see him for a HUGE discount for a senior experience of your own!

Danny & Jenny ~ Historic McFarland House

Martinsburg, WV Wedding Photographers

 I had the privilege of photographing Danny & Jenny’s wedding at the elegant Historic McFarland House in Martinsburg, WV earlier this summer. This gem of a venue hosts all kinds of upscale events (including date nights!), and has the most amazing food made by top-notch Chef Brad so check them out and tell them we sent you! And now, on to the wedding!

Photobooths are always a great way to add a little fun and conversation for your guests! Picstacheo provided the photobooth for this event, and I highly recommend them if you don’t add ours onto your package:)

I love that the Historic McFarland House has a beautiful outdoor area for guests to mingle as well as the indoor space.

I could totally envision a romantic night ceremony in this gorgeous setting, can’t you?

I love sparkler send-offs!

This just so happened to be my last wedding before I had our newest little bundle of love, so Jon got this shot of me directing the wedding party during formal photograph time with my baby bump.  And yes, we are done this time;)

Angel ~ Hedgesville High Senior Portraits

Martinsburg, WV Senior Portrait Photographer

Check out our other Hedgesville High School Senior Model, Angel! She’s such a natural in front of the camera, and has a personality that will blow you away. I really lucked out with her & Marissa – I love these girls! More about the two of them later, for now check out some of Angel’s pictures from our quick mini-session!
