We are so honored to share that again we received the 2018 “Best in Business Award” for Best Photography in Winchester! Voted by readers of the Winchester Sun, this award reminds us of just how wonderful our local clients here in Winchester are and we thank you. We have owned and operated Spectrum Photography for over three decades; it’s our privilege to serve the community in which we were born and raised. It’s our hope that you will continue to let us capture you and your family in photographs for years to come. As Photography styles have changed, we really try to stay in the balance of images that will stand the test of time but also hold up against the current trends. We are humbled by this award, and we thank the Winchester Sun and its readers again!

Happy Friday! This is an original painting on canvas put on a stretcher frame. Also pictured is a custom double opening mat with black core framing a newspaper article. What can we frame for you?

It is always an honor to photograph a wedding...we know that this will be one of the most special days in a person's life and we take that responsibility very seriously. But when we photograph a bride or groom whom we have known and taken pictures of their entire lives, the privilege seems a little greater. We have taken Lauren's pictures with her brother Logan, since they were very young. Stephanie Eads Gross thank you all for being such a gracious family to work with and allowing us the opportunity to capture this day for Lauren and Travis. Lauren Gumm, you were absolutely beautiful! We wish you all the best.

Spectrum Photography & Framing's cover photo

Yesterday was another one of those days for us, a day when we get to simultaneously do the job that we love and be present for one of our family member's weddings. Lizzy is everything she seems to be: beautiful, smart, gracious, fun-loving and unassuming. As the day went on, we learned that Nolan has a lot of those same characteristics. They make a great match, and it was a union that just seems to fit. We left feeling thankful for having been a part of their day and we wish them a lifetime of days as happy as yesterday.

Spectrum Photography & Framing


Almost 30 years to the day after we opened Spectrum Photography, we opened a new division of our business: Spectrum Framing and Gift Gallery. At Spectrum Framing and Gift Gallery we sell unique, Winchester and Kentucky-themed gifts and specialize in custom framing. We have hundreds of frame and matte options to choose from. We encourage our customers to come in and allow our framing specialist, Kimberly Warner Cole, help you customize your print of photograph to fit your personal style. Our pre-framed prints and photographs include beautiful images of horses, jockeys, bluegrass farms, Kentucky landscapes, UK basketball and football images, etc. These prints are professionally matted, framed, and ready to hang. Spectrum Framing & Gift Gallery also has a variety of personalized items handmade by our friend, Pattie Farthing Stubblefield. From t-shirts, to ornaments, glasses, and home decor, Patti customizes a wide variety of gifts and items to personalize your home. Our ribbon cutting with the Winchester Chamber of Commerce was Tuesday and we are now open for business! Just in time for the holiday season, as all of our items make great gifts. Please stop by, say hello, and check out what we have to offer. We look so forward to serving our loyal customers for many years to come. Thank you for the past 30!

Second only to actually taking pictures myself, I really enjoy teaching others what I know about photography. Documenting life's special moments through pictures is important to me and sharing that ability means even more when I'm able to share within our community of Winchester. 13 years of teaching this class and this is the best class yet! Lots of interest and talent. Thanks to all who signed up, Cora Heffner Director of the Clark Community Education Program and BCTC for hosting the classes. Special thanks to Elisha Haile for agreeing to be our model!

Great for company christmas parties!

The Spectrum photo booth can be much more than the standard two person booth, it can be configured to be the ultimate “party” booth. Getting in the booth with a group of your best friends is even more fun!

Our booth can be configured to hold from 2 to 10 or 12 people at one time. When the curtain closes the fun begins for the young and the not-so-young!

Our booth uses the highest quality camera, professional lighting, and dye-sub printing to ensure fantastic results. The fun really starts when you press the big red start button. Seconds later two high quality prints with four images each emerge ready for sharing or scrapbooking on the spot! We even personalize the strips with a banner documenting your event.

The photo booth comes with a large assortment of fun props and an operator who will remain on-site with the booth.

We also provide a free online gallery of all pictures captured at the event as well as a DVD of the photos.

Make your next event one your guests will remember by “acting crazy” in the privacy of our booth and taking home a strip of photos to prove it!

Still time for photos for Christmas Cards or gifts! Remember - "A picture is worth a thousand words, but a professional portrait is priceless"! Also portraits of yourself or your family make great gifts for that person on your list that "has everything".

[09/11/13]   Only 3 spaces left for the photography classes I'm giving starting Thursday night. Call Clark Community Education 745-3946 if you are interested!

[08/17/13]   PHOTOGRAPHY CLASSES - I'll be teaching photography again beginning Thursday Sep. 12 thru Oct 10 (no class Sep. 26). Classes are 6:30 to 8:30 at BCTC Winchester Campus. Learn to use your camera more effectively and see photos differently. This class covers camera functions, lighting, composition, color, black and white, portraiture and much more. There will be an introduction to Photoshop and digital file management on the last class. I'll be teaching Photoshop classes again in the spring. Sign up by calling Clark County Community Education at 745-3946. These classes are good for all levels...see you there!
