It seems like most of Colorado’s high school yearbook portrait submission deadlines are at the end of September going into October which consequently makes it a really, really busy time for photographers in our state. Not only is it the time that parents everywhere are busy booking those last minute high school portrait sessions, but Fall weddings and family photos are also very popular this time of year. My family realizes when September hits they are pretty much not going to see me much again until almost Thanksgiving! But we love what we do so we make the sacrifice!
Ella is one of those seniors who wanted a more urban experience for her photo-shoot. So we met downtown Denver and did my favorite back alley photo-shoot. The buildings in LoDo have great architectural features, fun graffiti and other urban landmarks like sculptures, cool bridges and more. The city photo-shoot is not for everyone, but for those that this appeal to we have a great time exploring and finding just the right spots for memorable photos! A beautiful girl also equals gorgeous photos! I’m so happy I was able to document your final year in high school.
2020 wasn’t the best year to invest in a photo-booth! However, we purchased this system before the world shutdown and we’re so excited to be able to offer this as an additional service to our clients and the many events we cover! We’ve been offering a “portrait station” for 20 years, but not an all in one station that allows the clients to do their own selfies! It was important to us to purchase a system that is not only easy to set-up and use, but one that also uses portrait lighting so that the photos are amazing! And this system fit the bill. It also does .gif and boomerangs and allows the client to email or downloaod a QR code so they also get the digital copies! We can create custom templates to fit the theme of your event and/or include your company logo. For this high school graduation party we personalized it with the school colors and “Class of 2020” message. I had a blast hanging out with the party goers to our first official paid event with our new venture and I’m looking forward to many, many other parties in the future!
Another year for graduation celebrations is down on the books! Photo and video pre-orders were sent via the mail today. My apologies to anyone waiting in line behind me! This is always one of those events that makes me look back on the passage of time as it probably does for a lot of you that attend any commencement ceremony. In my mind high school wasn’t that long ago for myself, but since I’ve been covering this event for fourteen years already that means I’ve been out of high school a lot longer than I was ever in it! Something to think about for all of you teenagers struggling with the demands of school, sports, activities and more. It goes so quickly cherish the moments as best that you can, someday you will look back on this day with fond memories. Congrats again to the class of 2019!
It was our thirteenth year covering the graduation of Jefferson Academy’s High School! I can’t believe how fast time flies! I’m not sure if a lot of our clients know that we cover many different types of events, not just weddings! This particular school we offer video coverage of the entire commencement along with photos of every graduate receiving their diplomas, candids of the ceremony and then posed portraits of those who would like one on our backdrop in the lobby of the venue. Every year I love covering this event because the students are so articulate and they always choose a very inspiring commencement speaker. Thank you to the JA family for continuing your business with us for so many years! We look forward to servicing your community for many years to come. Additional photos and copies of the video can be viewed via our “client galleries” on our website.
