The YRBK look.

Magazine-style photo-shoots for students by photographers with editorial and fashion experience.


More styles and new trends

Each year our creative team of photographers and portrait testers work together to create new looks and styles that all students get to use for their YRBK portraits.

One portrait style doesn't fit all, so at YRBK you get to do different styles as part of your package. You can even do more styles depending on your package.

More style options, combined with the ability to bring your own custom backdrop and a variety of outfits, means you'll have a lot of different portraits.


The Magazine.

So What is the magazine exactly?

The YRBK Magazine is a beautiful personal magazine that showcases all of the photos from your shoot. If you do more than one YRBK shoot you can include them all in your magazine. These unique keepsakes make a great portrait album to keep on your parent's shelf at home or bring with you to college.

You can polish up your magazine by purchasing a fully retouched version, or you can keep the original magazine to serve as proofs before you order any high-resolution prints.

Creators of YRBK and YRBK Magazine

YRBK is a local family-led startup

 

meet Peter and Sarah

Peter and Sarah are the heart behind YRBK. They have an incredible story filled with love and friendship dating back to high-shool. They met when they were children and grew up in Delaware. Recently they celebrated 10 years of marriage and they reside in Wilmington with their children.

We originally created YRBK as a fun alternative to the traditional school portrait. We wanted it to be professional quality, and we wanted the portraits printed for framing and as a mini personal magazines for each student. We have more ideas for YRBK that will come to light as we keep moving forward.

Peter is a professional portrait photographer who began his career on the west coast as a fashion photographer. He also found a love for photographing weddings and events. In college Peter studied fine arts including painting, drawing, figure study, art-history, design, illustration, and color theory.

He loves meeting new people and families and taking portraits they can enjoy for years to come. His work embodies people who want to look their best for personal portraits, portfolios, and celebrations.
