Good morning! If you have been around here for very long, you know I don’t do many high school seniors, but I had an absolute blast last summer with a couple of seniors and I just had to share them with you folks.
Britton was an absolute trooper, because even though it was approximately roasting outside, he traipsed all over downtown with me to do his senior photos on a super hot August evening. And even wore long pants – and at one point, a sweater – and laughed at all my terrible jokes. We spent a couple hours laughing about how much we’d rather be outside in a couple feet of snow and how we love our siblings even when they drive us crazy.
Britton and family – thank you for trusting me to get these photos, and I hope your senior year was amazing! All the best with your next adventures!!
Last month, I did Alexis’s senior photos at Manito, and she rocked them! Alexis is such a sweet, laid back, girl, and I was so thrilled to be a part of her senior year. Alexis has such a good sense of style, I can’t believe how different seniors are now from when I was in high school! All my photos were done in a studio, and things weren’t nearly as fun, trust me. We traipsed through Manito Park for this Central Valley High School senior, and just like every other time I’ve shot there, I’ve found another little spot that I love to shoot. Spokane has such wonderful parks, I’m constantly amazed at how beautiful our city is. Alexis, best of luck with your senior year — and everything you do beyond it! I know it’s going to be such a great year for you!!
2017 Seniors: I have a little bit of space left in October for sessions, so if you need to get those photos done before the yearbook deadlines, get in touch ASAP. 2018 seniors, I know you’re just juniors right now, but let’s chat about getting you on the books for spring — it’ll be here before you know it!
My 2016 sessions have now passed. Thank you to everyone who came out this year. If you’d like to be the first to get information on portrait & mini sessions in 2017, please sign up here. You can also request information by emailing me through the contact form.
We’re less than a week away from September, and I know you’re trying to squeeze everything in to the last few days of summer, but I’m about to talk about fall sessions. The Emily Wenzel Photography holiday sessions are one of my favorite things, it’s always so fun to see so many of you and kickoff the fall & winter season with these sessions! Due to our big news, sessions will be taking place in October this year, instead of November and December like years past. So, grab your favorite fall sweaters – or Halloween costumes – and cross your Christmas photos off the list before we hit freezing temps for Love & Monsters in the Leaves. Please join me at a beautiful, Spokane location, surrounded by all the fall colors the Inland Northwest provides. I’ll have a few blankets and other small things that will make for great photos and memories! Anyone is welcome to sign up for a holiday shoot, whether it’s just you, your whole family, only the kids, you and your love, or a bunch of your friends! These sessions may not be the best idea for large families, since we’ll be moving quite quickly.
– At a location in the greater Spokane area.
– 30 minute session
– 7 digital images delivered through an online gallery with a print release
– $150 plus sales tax ($163.05 total)
You will receive your edited images approximately 10 days after your session, and no later than 2 weeks. There will be around 20-30 images for you to choose from. 7 images are included in your session, and additional can be purchased a la carte. The best part of doing these early? You’ll have plenty of time to get your Christmas cards ordered! Here are the dates and times available:
Saturday, October 15th
Friday, October 21st
Sunday, October 30th
Please reserve your time slot here! Spots will go fast, and are scheduled on a first come first serve basis. I will do my best to accommodate everyone, but space is limited. The session fee is non-refundable and is required to hold your spot – if you need to cancel, you can apply your deposit towards a session at a later time. Once we confirm a time slot I will email you with further details; I will need your deposit within 24 hours of confirming your date or else your time slot will be made available again for someone else.
I am looking forward to spreading some holiday cheer and capturing the joy of the season in your family! If you’ve got any questions, feel free to send me a message through the contact form.
I don’t photograph a lot of high school seniors, but Alexis may look familiar, because I photographed her sister’s engagement session back in January. I met up with Alexis last week, and we had the most wonderful session. I’ve got space for just a few more high school seniors (or other portraits) in September, but spots are filling quickly. Contact me to save your spot today!
I can’t wait to share more of this sweet Central Valley senior!!
Oh, 2015. You were a crazy, roller coaster of a year. I spent most of the summer in fear that a couple would call me, saying that their venue was destroyed by the forest fires. But luckily, that never happened! Luckily, we had amazing weather for almost every wedding, and 2015 was a great year. I got to photograph families and babies and seniors and couples in 2015. I got to share in so many milestone moments with people, that narrowing down this post to only those photos that I felt like challenged me, and captured those precious moments I love so much.
I started out with so many images in this post, and tried to edit it down so that it was a little bit more cohesive. But, let’s be honest, it’s still long! Thank you to all my clients, who trusted me to capture your memories in 2015.
I ask all my seniors if there’s somewhere they’d like to do photos. Sometimes, they’re looking for a specific look, like something urban with lots of funky colors, and I suggest a few places that would work. Other times, they have a specific place in mind where they want to do photos. Nik wanted to do his photos out at his uncle’s place. I believe the text he sent me was along the lines of, “there’s some fields and a tractor there and it’s out near Nine Mile.” I very nearly got lost about three times heading out there, but it was exactly like Nik described, with some horses and fairly big fields.
What made Nik’s session great, was taking photos at a place he like. If you’re nervous about having your photos done, doing them at a place where you’re comfortable means that you’re already feeling at east. Because we spent time at a place Nik enjoyed, he got senior photos that represent him at this point in his life. And, as a bonus, I spent far too much time trying to convince one of the horses that there was nothing in my camera bag for him. :)
2017 seniors: I am now looking for a few senior reps, if that’s something you’re interested in, let’s talk! Or if you’re thinking you’d like a winter session — skiing or snowboarding? — this is a great time to get in touch with me. Hit me up through the contact form above!
