Happy New Year from Wally Spice Photography and WSP Seniors!

  A huge THANK YOU to all of our wonderful clients and friends for the fantastic year of 2011 in our business. Thank you all for your love, confidence, encouragement and support!

It was definitely a year of growth and change as we had our first full year in our new studio space in Warren! Julie and I had so much fun fixing it up, accumulating countless chairs, backgrounds, lights, props, office furnishings, etc. to make it our studio home and office area, and we LOVE it!  It has evolved so much since we first started and will always be a work in progress!  It was hectic, crazy, and busy at times but we loved every minute!

We still photographed about 20 weddings and enjoyed each and every one.  We had the best brides and grooms to work with and the most awesome locations.  We especially loved all the varying locations for Romantics, like our very favorite Urban Shoots in Detroit, which have become a specialty for us.

This is the year we really launched our High School Senior program in earnest.  Last year we photographed about 8 seniors, but this year that went to at least 65!!  Julie has been the creative mastermind behind this and I am so proud of her.  We all loved the fantastic Senior Safari  for our models in early May and this grew to so many fantastic sessions!  Everyone commented that we were so refreshingly different.  We designed a dedicated logo and name for our senior division and decided to give the seniors their own Facebook fan page.  It grew from just a handful to over 500 fans in a very short time!   We have separate albums for our major locations: Locations - Urban Shoot (Detroit),  Rochester,  Studio,  Sterling Heights, and Plymouth. Be sure to check out www.facebook.com/WSPseniors.wallyspicephotography We LOVE our fans!

We also enjoyed photographing quite a few babies, children and families, many from our former brides who will always enjoy free studio sessions (files and prints not included).  It is heartwarming to see our bridal couples become loyal clients and friends as their families grow. And we sincerely appreciate the referrals!

Our main Fan Page for Wally Spice Photography has also been very active and popular, especially for the weddings and portraits as well as some of the other unique events we photographed.  Be sure to check out www.facebook.com/wallyspicephotography We have links to our fan pages on the menu bar!

I am also so proud that both of Julie's sons (my grandsons) have been active this year working with us.  Aaron did a lot of assisting on the weddings, contributing some awesome images.  He also helped with some of the endless editing.  Steven has shown a great interest too, he loved photographing the high school football games and also assisted on some senior sessions.  This has truly been a family business and we all love it!

I do feel bad that this blog has not been as active this year as it has in the past years, it was an extremely busy year as we grew our horizons and our face book fan pages have taken up the slack, but this will be better next year. We are also looking to update and improve our actual website this year, but the blog will stay intact.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for your continuing support as we venture into another exciting year! We learned so much this great 2011, that 2012 will be even better and bigger!

HAPPY NEW YEAR -

Wally, Julie, Aaron, Steven

WSP Seniors - our new division of Wally Spice Photography

WSP Seniors Since the spring of 2011 we decided that our popular division of High School Senior photography within Wally Spice Photography deserves it own spotlight. We designed a new logo for WSP seniors and started a Facebook fan page dedicated just to our high school seniors.

Please take a look at this great fan page -   WSP seniors fan page or Use menu link

Julie is the mastermind behind all of this - since she has attended numerous high profile conventions dedicated just to the seniors. At these conventions she studied for many days with some of the best high school photography photographers from around the US.

Aaron, Julie's son will be a senior at Cousino High school next year so he joined us as an administrator of the Fan page. It wasn't hard to find lots of fantastic models willing to have fun with us!

We had our first senior "Safari" experience with our models and everyone had a fantastic time. We photographed all day in many great locations. Aristocat Transporations helped us make the day extra special, as the models enjoyed riding in the Excursion SUV Limousine. Our driver, Ron was the best!

After this we had a great "Reveal" party at Blumz by JR, a floral and gift shop on Woodward Ave in Ferndale to show all of our amazing images. They had a back room that worked out just super.  Thank you SO much for your hospitality. (I'll add a few images later)

WSP Seniors - our new High School Senior marketing for Wally Spice Photography

We have really enjoyed our new growing High school senior business. Julie has been the main photographer as she has studied extensively with some of  coolest and most popular Senior Photographers nationwide.  This influence is showing in her awesome images that everyone loves. This year we are building our portfolio and client base - so it's a great time to get some great specials and deals.

We love our on Destination Sessions and specialize in the popular  "Detroit Urban Destination Trip".  Also  popular are the "Nature Destination trips" and the "Personalized Detination trips".  No limit on how many outfit changes, unlimited poses, and no limit on locations within the times allocated. The On Site  garage Studio will soon be completed - we are excited about added this feature also.

Plus YOU are never locked into set packages - you choose what fits YOU and YOUR family - you choose the sessions that appeal to you, and then choose from units of small prints, wall portraits, personalized press printed albums and many other unique personalized products!

This is YOUR session - Experience the difference!

If YOU or anyone YOU know is graduating in 2011 - please have them call us and lets work together!
