While most of my work consists of seniors and weddings, I do a little bit of everything, such as events like Kristen’s graduation party. Kristen was one of my 2018 senior reps, and I was so happy to have her as my team, as she is one of my longest friends. Covering her graduation party to save the memories was an honor.
Before the guests arrived, I make sure to grab the gorgeous set up of the room. From the tables with burlap vases and flowers, to the exquisite cookie table, this party was so lovely. In a way, event photography like this one is similar to grabbing the before during a wedding. You have to set the tone!
Kristen had a cute photo booth and decorative signs around the room to make it all her own, and the entire party truly reflected her personality, simple and elegant.
What a gorgeous group of friends!! They were all so cute and sweet as well.
One of the big things Kristen’s mom, Kerry, wanted were pictures of her family. Grant and Garrett, Kristen’s cousins in the left picture, came all the way from Columbus to be there for her! How sweet. All the ladies on the right, Kristen’s mom, grandma, and aunt, are all too adorable, and coordinated so well!
Some silly moments with her cousins and bestie, Kaylin, were a must. Kaylin made that board for Kristen as a graduation present since they will be roomies at Walsh University next fall on top of spending their high school years at Cardinal Mooney together. I was also super flattered that she used my photo on it!!
And boy oh boy, did this girl have a lot of guests!!
This photograph is so sweet and one of my favorites. This mother daughter duo are too cute and I love having them in my life!
The last thing I had to capture was Kristen’s dress (which I will be stealing for sure). She looked flawless, and her outfit only helped show how beautiful she truly is.
Congratulations, Kristen and the class of 2018! I am so happy for you!!
