Snapshot 47 Photo's has become widely known throughout the Mon Valley area. Our family team consists of Wayne E. Ray and Jennifer L. Codeluppi. We also have many helpers that assist us on photo shoots and behind the scenes.
Wondering where we got our unique name? Well, here is our story...
Wayne has always had a passion for photography. When digital cameras first came out, Wayne rekindled his love for photography. He began taking photographs again. His first subject...scenery. Wayne was awarded many first place awards in local photography competitions with these photos. However, Wayne has another passion, Firefighting. He has been a member of the Fallowfield Township Fire Department for over 38 years. In 2003 a fellow firefighter asked him to bring his camera to fire calls. One day he did and he hasn't stopped since. Because of this, the members of the FTVFC gave him the nickname 'Snapshot". Seeing how the FTVFC Washington County Number is 47 it was only natural to name the business Snapshot 47. Jennifer is Wayne's daughter. She now operates the full-service photography studio in Charleroi. She has learned her photography trade from her father.
