Just wanted to share some of the high school seniors we have photographed during the past school year. As much as I want to blog about each of our seniors’ it’s practically impossible because there is so much to be said about each of them. So to make it easy I’m sharing some of my favorite images. Enjoy!
Sharing our passion with the world. Our love of photography is endless. Please enjoy the pictures we post and the sentiment behind them. Many blessings, Scott and Valorie Walz
It’s finally here! Marlee and Jared’s big day! Here a few of the pictures Scott took of them last fall at Shaker Village.
I am excited to show you a few of Gray’s high school senior pictures and tell you a little about him. We have known Gray the majority of his life as he has been a part of our church family. I have talked many times about our church family and they truly are family to me and Scott. Having a church family is special in itself and many of you know exactly what I am talking about.
Gray and his family moved to Michigan several years ago and have been truly missed. We have all have heard “Home is Where the Heart is” well I am excited to say Gray will be coming home to go to college. He will be majoring in Equine Management this coming fall.
Picking out the photographs proved to be harder for me than expected. Gray’s black and white senior portraits kept standing out more than the color photographs. Even though all of our senior photography sessions always include a mixture of color and black & white photographs Gray’s just seemed to be more moving and telling than most.
As you view each of his portraits you can see the man he is and the man he is going to be.
We are very excited to witness this couple getting married this weekend. Scott had the opportunity to take some wonderful engagement pictures last winter. They didn’t let a little rain get in their way of having a great time. They started their session at the The Henry Clay estate and ended at their favorite ice cream parlor, Graeter’s.
Just to give you a little back story to this photography session, the owner of this ’67 Shelby GT500 Coupe Mustang is a long-time client and friend. So you can just imagine how many times over the years we have heard our client glowingly speak of Lil-Red. We were quite surprised and honored when he dropped in the studio to ask Scott to photograph his car. Of course Scott said a resounding YES! So after a few phone calls to work out the details of the photo shoot you can see the results and the proud owner. We are blessed to have the best clients!

It’s a busy time of year to have your senior portrait taken but it’s not too late to plan your fall session. Fall senior portrait sessions book up fast so hurry and get on our calendar before all of the time slots are taken. Remember the days are shorter so our outdoor time is very limited. The earlier you book the better chance of getting the day and time that works best with your schedule.
Here are a few pictures of Elana’s fall session from last fall. It’s a great time to show off fall season of color with some creative outfits that represents your personality.
A lovely wedding that mirrors the love that Rebecca and Govind have for each other.
I can’t hardly believe that Will just graduated high school! You see, we have been blessed with the opportunity to photograph Will and his family his whole life. I wish I could say that Will has turned out to be an outstanding young man that he is, because of Studio Walz and our awesome influence on young impressionable youth. Surely it must be! Truth be known, he is from a wonderful family and we had nothing to do with his many achievements (even though we would like to think so).
Not too long ago it was not unusual for a family to bring their children in for formal portraits. Sometimes families brought their children in one at a time when they reached a certain “age” or the whole family would come in. Enlargements were ordered for the living room to mark the cornerstone. Now, we receive calls from people wanting to know if we actually have a studio and do we have fill lights and reflectors. They are looking for a family photographer that can be there for the special times in their family’s life marking those special occasions as births, christenings, first communion, family portraits, high school senior portraits and weddings.
We have found that children raised coming to Studio Walz for their portraits are always at ease and love their time here. They grow up knowing Scott as their family photographer and are excited to see us when they arrive. Truly, our clients become a member of our extended family.
The times may have changed and we have changed along with it but we will not stop photographing the timeless formal portrait. Here are some images taken of this precious little girl. She loved her time in front of the camera and her special time being the center of attention.
We have known Isabella for most of her life and have had the privilege of watching her turn into the spectacular young lady that she is
