Congratulations Tori on being one of St. Mary's "Nurses of the Year".
We hope everyone is as pleased with your portrait as we are ... a beautiful location with a beautiful youg lady!

Most of you will recognize Stacy as one of E-Town Magazine's "Fab 10" contestants. We have really enjoyed getting to know these women and look forward to showing you some more great images in the future. Keep up the good work Stacy!

brady & haylee

Many of our clients, with all the options we can give them, still tell me they really want our close-up portraits of their children..."just show us their eyes and smile, we'll be happy".
Over and over through the past 33 years they are.
Thank for making this style so recognizable as the "Wess Gray" style!

When we went out to do Jennifer's senior portrait, I spotted these two little bits of color, and through some creative posing and lighting, they sure made a big impact on the portrait. Sometimes a little bit can go a long way.

trevor & regan

40 years from now, I can't imagine that this will not be Regan's most treasured possession. We are always grateful to be a part of our clients past, present, and future!

For over 30 years we have been taking "urban" portraits around town, each time finding new locations and backgrounds so our portraits do not look alike or copy another studio.
With Haylee, our intent was to show off her beautiful eyes and smile...with a new location to add to, not take away or compete with the wonderful expression she has.

One year old children are great to photograph, and Josiah was no exception. Just look at those eyes and his smile. If his grandparents don't think he is perfect, "I need to have a good talking to them." :-)

at home with the rogerses

In the previous issue of "E-Town", there is an article with our photographs of the incredible home of Bob and Leilani. If you haven't seen that issue, do what ever it takes to find a copy, this home is awesome and reflects the personality of it's owners as well as it can be done.

ashley & jake

The last time I photographed Ashley and Jake was for their senior portraits, and at the time they were dating. Now they are engaged to be married. Here is their engagement portrait. What wonderful smiles (and a pretty cool ring too). We wish them the very best!


Usually when I thank someone on my blog, it is for being a wonderful client.
In this case, that is true, we had a great time with her portrait (as well as her family portrait that I posted on a while ago), but also I thank her for her service to our country. It is duty above and beyond, and we are in debt to you.

the youngest youngs

Best wishes and congratulations to Jennifer and Toby on their marriage this year. Just by looking at your portrait, everyone can tell of the love and happiness that is in your life together as a family. And to Kaleb, thanks for being fun to photograph (as well as becoming a pretzel)!

Usually I rant and rave about what my clients did on their portrait session, and in this case I really do love the energy and grace that Miss Ashley brought to our time together.
But also, I love the new flooring in my camera room that "Carpet Plus Warehouse Sales" did for us. During the build out, I dropped by one morning to check things out, and when I swung by after work, all the flooring had magically appeared...and without any problems or intervention on my part. WOW!


John is St. Mary's "Employee of the Year".
Our relationship with him goes back a few years when we photographed him for his senior portrait. It's always good to see our clients again and to know what a contribution they make to our community.
Thank you!

What a very special family, and a part of our church family also.
Thanks for all you are, as a family but also as individuals!

If he could look any sweeter, we can't imagine how. This is as perfect as it gets!

Little Miss Hope is Heather's cousin from our previous post yesterday. And just the same, we have photographed her every year...I can see her senior portrait coming up "in the blink of an eye".

Monday, October 6, 2008


We photographed her mother's senior portrait....
and Heather when she was 1 year old,
and 2,
and 3,
and 4,
and well....every year including her senior portrait this year.
To her and her family we say "thanks"!

This profile portrait of Bailey is one of my favorite portraits from this summer. When I take a profile portrait, I usually do not know if the family even likes this view, but in this case, both the subject and her grandmother loved it.....thanks!

the morgan boys

Three things about the "Morgan Boys",

1) Aren't they a handsome group of young men?
2) This is the 4th generation of Travis's family I have known.
3) If it wasn't for Travis, I would weigh at least 300 pounds!

Thank you Travis for all of this!

mustang ali

What could be better than a beautiful girl with her car?
Thanks for another opportunity to photograph you.
