A Wild One

Its my birthday, and I love nothing more than photography. So, I decided to blog one out.

This is one of my favorite images from my recent shoot at the Nashville Zoo. It was so much fun. I have to first off thank my wonderful assistants that helped on this shoot. Sara Mac and Amy Harris. You gotta love'em! Thanks again, ladies!

We were trying to get some images to show what wedding photos can look like at the zoo. And here, we went to rock some. It was so much fun to wait for the giraffes to get in the right spots in the photos. And yes, we lit those tall guys up with strobes, too! I had Sara tracking the giraffe as he galloped through the frames, hoping we get that "perfect" moment. I think this is a good one. And of course, it didn't hurt that the models were beautiful.

It was another fun shoot, chasing a sunset and getting to that special place where my light meets the sunshine and tries to form something to remember.
