Event Photography (Neuqua Valley High School Senior Prom), 2016


It’s prom season, which means beautiful photos of beautiful people.

This May I was given the opportunity to photography my younger sister on her senior prom! This was so fun, as the weather was perfect and the natural environment made for some beautiful contrast. In shooting these photos, I worked to get close-ups that really captured both my sister and her boyfriend’s natural, happy expressions. I framed the shots with the greenery to keep the focus on their black and white clothing.

I also shot some photographs indoors, which included our family dog, Flash! With these photos, I focused on getting the correct lighting that would highlight the browns and beiges of both skin tone and fur.

I largely used a zoom lens; this was because I felt that the closeness of the shots provided a natural intimacy. I loved how they turned out! 🙂
