Event Phothographer | Shelley Edwards Photography

So last weekend I attended Newman Smith High School, Class of 1985’s reunion – I was there as their event photographer. I’m actually an alumni of Newman Smith (Go Trojans) – so it was really fun seeing some of the peeps. Then again, when I was a senior, they were freshman, so I probably didn’t notice them much.  It didn’t really feel right selling CDs to my friends from the event, so I decided that it’s time to pay things forward.  Life has been really good to me lately, so all profits from the sale of the event CDs will be donated to Operation Smile (www.operationsmile.org).  It’s a great organization that helps children who have facial deformities.  So NSHS friends – please contact me if you want to help us create a smile!

Let’s see – in 1985 – what was going on?

A gallon of gas: $1.09
Movie Tickets: $2.75
Avg Income: $22.1K
New Car: $9,005

Microsoft releases the first version of Windows, Windows 1.0
CDs (Compact Discs) are introduced to American Consumers
Coca-Cola introduces “New Coke” – & then went back to the orginal formula (thank goodness!)

Movies – Back to the Future (Go Marty McFly); Rocky IV
Music – Duran Duran; The Cure; Madonna

Ronald Regan was president

It also looks like it was the year that great friends graduated high school. The reunion had a wonderful turnout – here are a few pix….

These guys look like they were the ones to watch out for!

Ahhhh - beautiful girls!

Is it me, or has Gena not aged at all?

These two had me laughing all night! Mary is great a posing!


Look at those gorgeous smiles!

One of my favs for the night - love the genuine smiles & laughs!

Revenda Bierley Carlisle, Pa Photographer Shelley,

You did a great job photographing this event. They look like a fun group. Gas prices sure have gone up since then! And wow, the cost of movie tickets…. at least the average income has gone up as well.

Alissa Brickman, Iowa Photographer What a fun post! The images are great- I bet most of us have fuzzy shots from those little cameras- what a great idea to hire a photographer for this!
