What an amazing senior destination session! Fellow photographer, Jenn Lewis, and I headed out to Nevada with 4 high school seniors to create some stunning images! We spread our shoot out over 2 days and explored everything from the El Dorado dried lakebed, to the Nelson ghost town, all the way down to some beautiful cliffs by the Colorado River. We even spent an evening grabbing some photos on the strip in Las Vegas! And what would a desert shoot be without some smoke bombs and epic dresses? Check it out!
What happens when you plan the perfect Fall senior photoshoot and it rains? You keep shooting! We hit a few unique and hard to find locations for her session, which also left us out in the rain and short on available light, so we just went with it! While we got some gorgeous and one-of-a-kind images and footage (Rachel opted for the video session), we decided to pick a drier day to go back out for a second shoot, head to the city, and create some of the images we had originally planned for. And we couldn't leave out her cheerleading, so we headed out to Edwardsville High School to shoot a series of cheer photos too! Check out her video and photos below!
Despite a little rain at the start of Tyler's senior photo shoot, we had an amazing day! We started by getting access to the beautiful Magnolia Hotel in St. Louis. Tyler sported his brand new suit and "Kingsman" style glasses (and umbrella) for a high class look. We continued that look to some of the areas around the hotel, even incorporating his red classic Corvette in a few shots.
We grabbed a few more shots downtown after a quick change into some more casual clothes, then headed back across the river to Triad High School to create some epic football images before sunset. Check out his session below!
What a crazy session! After Emma's hair and makeup at the Sizzor Shak in Collinsville, we hopped the river to start her shoot at the landing where we had scouted some great spots the day before. The only problem was, the day of her shoot also turned out to be a big festival at the landing. Crowds and the lack of parking sent us on our way to Plan B - Wash Ave. by the City Museum.
We got some beautiful shots down the the street, finding some cool spots that included a big green doorway and a reflective window we could use. After a few minutes out there, we headed on to the main attraction - the City Museum. If you haven't been there, this place is packed with all sorts of quirky opportunities for one-of-a-kind images. A couple of our favorites are the glass bottle wall and big pipe organ room where we were able to make some epicness happen! And we didn't have to miss out on sunset either, since they have an open rooftop we could shoot on! Despite the crowds, we had an awesome time and got a variety of amazing images.
Oh, we also spent a little time shooting a quick video trailer of her session too, which you can watch below :)
