First of all, thank you for visiting our website. This is how Wild Hog Photographics came to be.
Brent has always had a love for photography and has taken tons of pictures to document our life through the years. Whether it is a birthday, anniversary or family outings there is a lasting memory available for us to show. Angela loves to have photos of family and events on display. The memories in our life are living in our home.
As our children have grown up and been involved in various activities, someone was always trying to document that for us. When our girls played sports and in school, we were forever buying packages of pictures which we now have a drawer full of. We decided that we could create great images, provide great photo products that you choose at a price that is comparable to our area while providing an experience that will last a lifetime. Being involved with team sports we ventured into Team Sports Photography and helped out the various teams we were involved with. Word of mouth started to keep us busy and proved there was a need for someone to preserve their memories, provide an experience they want to keep coming back for and at a price that's worth the investment.
This new photography venture between Brent and Angela was created but just like every new birth, you have to have a name. Brent was very close to his grandfather, Charlie Moody, who the good Lord took home in October of 2005. Pappa's nickname was Charlie "Wild Hog" Moodygrass. We decided to name our business after him, not the Razorbacks or a movie about a group of bikers but as a tribute to the wonderful man he was. He was full of stories, memories and provided an experience for all that he came into contact with all his practical jokes and the way he never met a stranger. He possessed character just as we wanted this new venture to possess and provide for others. This is our way of honoring him daily for the amazing person and the legacy he left behind. Memories. It is all about the memories. Thus Wild Hog Photographics was born!
Wild Hog Photographics specializes in creative senior and family portraits using natural settings as the backdrop along with studio lighting. We like capturing what we call YOU-niqueness because everyone is YOU-nique and we want to capture YOU in our images. From your images we can do customized graduation invitations or Christmas cards that show your personality. We can create custom albums to be passed down through the ages within your family, gift prints for family members and friends as well as nice wall art for your home. We also still do sports team photos to help you preserve that memory in time as well.
Who are Brent and Angela?
Brent and Angela combined their households in September of 2003, thus creating a blended family that outnumbered Brent 3-1! While they brainstorm together on ideas for their shoots, they both have specific areas they handle to help make Wild Hog Photographics a success.
