We Love Photographing Jr, Senior Prom

Photographing Senior Prom...
Thinking back to my senior year of high school I remember the excitement I felt knowing that I was becoming an adult and that my world was about to be forever changed. The future was bright and full of possibilities. What better way to celebrate all I had been in high school and all I would become in the future than with the prom?
The Niangua class of 2014 enjoyed their prom at the Pythian castle.
It was built in 1913 and is rich with history. The theater room upstairs was the perfect place for a prom. There are tables for dinner, a stage for prom pictures and of course a dance floor. We also had a backdrop set up in the hallway and we managed to grab some pictures outside of the castle before the sun went to sleep for the night.
It turned out to be quite the workout for us having walked up and down several flights of stairs multiple times. We circled around the dance floor so many times that it felt like Brenda and I had a dance of our own going on! It was so much fun seeing the different dresses and tuxedos. Finding out who was voted king and queen. Every kid danced and they danced the whole night.
Photographing the prom was sure a big change from the weddings that we usually do. We loved the challenge of it though and we loved having a new venue to work with. Maybe if we're really lucky, we will get a wedding there someday. I can see some beautiful pictures there in my minds eye already!
Congratulations to the 2014 Niangua class. May God bless each of you in all of your life adventures!
