Sherwood Studio has been providing beautiful portraiture and wedding services for over 50 years. Mr. Art Downs first opened Sherwood Studio in Five Points in the 1950’s. For the last 40 years the studio has been located in Lexington. After working with Mr. Downs for two years, Randall Drawdy took over operations in 1996. At that time a new studio was designed and built at 638 Old Chapin Road. Since that time Sherwood has continued to provide portraiture, wedding, and copy and restoration services.
Our custom designed studio has several amenities that guarantee each customer a unique experience. A marbled floor dressing room with full-length mirrors allows our brides to bring their mother and friends to make your bridal session an enjoyable part of your wedding experience. For families and children we have two twelve foot wide backgrounds or you may choose an outdoor environmental setting for your portrait. Many times we will utilize both in the same session.
Since Randall has operated Sherwood Studio the business has run By Appointment Only. This allows us to focus all of our attention on one customer at a time. During wedding conferences we want to not only show our work but also listen to you so we are able to provide the coverage you prefer. Our wedding albums have a combination of traditional and photojournalistic work with the goal being a storybook album that tells the story of your wedding day. Randall has authored over 350 wedding albums. There is no substitute for experience.
The following are descriptions of this website’s galleries.
Bridals – Two hours are set aside for each bridal session. The session includes classic studio lighting, natural light, and outdoor/environmental work.
Weddings – Randall has authored over 350 wedding albums in the last 17 years. His experience and professionalism guarantees a storybook album unique to each customer.
Children – The only way to photograph 250,000 children is to have a soft spot in your heart for children. Each one is special and treated as such. Call to discuss your precious one and to hear suggestions to make their time at Sherwood Studio successful.
