Valory is a talented musician whose violin abilities have taken her around the world. She has even played in Carnegie Hall. We ventured out into a local nature conservancy with her violin to take some beautiful musician photographs for her. The sound of her violin echoed off the surrounding mountains through the valley of wildflowers where she played. We splashed through the stream and danced barefoot beneath the waterfalls.
This was my first chance to take Virginia Tech graduation photos for one of the members of the Hokie cheerleading squad! We started out at Amber’s favorite bar, Big Al’s, made our way around campus from the iconic Virginia Tech sign on Main Street to Burruss Hall. Amber is very outdoorsy, so we found a more rural feel out at Heritage Park with fields of grain and an old barn. We went back to campus to meet up with Amber’s cheer partner for some stunts then wrapped it all up on the Pylons in front of Torgersen Bridge.
As a general rule of thumb, I want to photograph the people I collaborate with in addition to the actual models. Once we finished our work, I was excited for a chance to steal a few shots of Lauren from Bride of the Fox: Fine Vintage Women's Wear & Lingerie herself rocking some of the beautiful pieces available in her shop. Working with other creative entrepreneurs is so invigorating, really super magical stuff!
I loved working with Liz again, she had modeled for me previously for a Vintage Themed Styled Shoot at Explore Park in Roanoke so it was nice to play dress up with her again in our collaboration with Lauren from Bride of the Fox: Fine Vintage Women's Wear & Lingerie.
