Looking for something in particular? 



Welcome to the SPV Blog! I'm Carianne, and my husband Todd and I are a wedding, portrait photo, and video team based in Clovis, California. Grab something to drink (if you're like me, a glass of red wine) and enjoy viewing our latest work, browsing resources, and getting a little peek into our life! 

Hello Friends

Digital photography has opened the door for many people who have a nice DSLR to take up photography. With the use of a delete key and filters and presets for editing, many believe that they can start charging for their work.

Senior portraits are about celebrating a life stage. Your entire senior year is filled with milestones, and it is definitely one worth noting and celebrating in many ways, including senior portraits. It’s not only your last year of high school, but so much more. It’s your last year with the friends you grew up with, your last year at home, and your last year of truly being under your parents wings.

If you’re like me, you’ve dreamed about your wedding day since you were a little girl. You had visions of what your gown would look like (I used to draw pictures of my dream dress all the time), you thought about the flowers you would carry, and you maybe even had a place in mind for you I Do’s.

fter trying for over a year, and not getting pregnant, I scheduled an appointment with my doctor to see what we could do. I was put on Clomid. We tried that for six months with no results. Our next option was to try monthly hormone injections. Each month I would go to my neighbor’s house, who is a nurse, and receive my monthly shot in my hip. Another six months of injections and nothing.

Finding the perfect name for your business can be a daunting task. You want it to mean something to you and connect to you in some way.

Not only was this one of my best years for weddings, it was also an incredible year for portraits! I had the most amazing opportunities to capture Seniors, Childhood Milestones, maternity, and families!
These images are some of my favorites from this year. I can’t wait to see what 2020 brings. It is hard to imagine anything could top this year.

I have been doing wedding photography for awhile now, and each year I learn something new and find ways to take my business to the next level. This year I was blessed with the most weddings I have ever done in one year and they did not disappoint!

When my kids were little, I wanted to create Christmas traditions that would make the holiday season even more special. I decided to make Christmas Eve a special night with family and friends.
