Susan & Tyler are getting Married!

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.


’67 Shelby GT500 Coupe Mustang | Lil-Red | photography by Scott Walz

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!

Elana | senior photographer lexington ky, Ashland, Henry Clay Estate

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.

Will’s Senior Portraits | senior photography lexington ky

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).

Formal Children’s Portraits | Studio Walz | Lexington Ky

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.

Carly | West Jessamine High School Senior Portraits | Scott Walz Photographer

Carly is truly a lovely girl inside and out, which doesn’t surprise me because her sister and her mother are just the same. We had the honor of photographing Carly’s sister when she was a high school senior.

Carly is quite an athlete. She loves swimming and playing tennis. As many people here in central Kentucky we love our horses and love to ride and Carly is no different.

Her plans are the attend the University of Kentucky this fall.

Enjoy these lovely photos!

Zach!| High School Senior Photography Lexington Ky| PL Dunbar High School

Finally, I am getting back to blogging after a wonderful Christmas season (which starts in September) and working hard on wrapping the endless paper work on business side of running a photography studio. A lot of time has passed since my last post. No worries we are still here and working hard. I have loads of portrait sittings to blog about and I want to start with Zach. We photographed his sister a few years ago and now Zach is the senior. He is in the spotlight and we were happy to be a part of his senior year. Be sure to check out his images. Valorie
