When I got the request to shoot this bachelorette party, I was totally excited. I had never done a bachelorette party before, despite the fact that Nashville, TN is the Bachelorette Capital of the US! Even though this shoot was a departure from my family shoots, I wasn't at all worried because I always strive to capture connection, which can be found in any situation!
Luana clearly wanted her "last hurrah" captured with a lot of local flair and fun, especially considering she & her friends were from out-of-town and had never been here before (except one of them, a long time ago).
Immediately upon viewing the image inspiration she'd sent me from Pinterest, I knew the EXACT locations in the pictures and decided to start our shoot under the Pedestrian Bridge and then make our way up onto it - letting the wind lead us after that!
As is typical at the beginning of any shoot, they hadn't quite loosened up...yet. All of a sudden they all busted out singing Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" and it was ON from there! Any photo where it looks like they're singing, they are!
The obvious excitement and happiness for the bride-to-be radiated from her entertaining and hilarious bridesmaids. Everyone was there to help her celebrate! Her maid-of-honor even brought some classic "crime" signs that we had too much fun staging and shooting! (Keep an eye out for the ready-to-help bouncers!)
It was a fantastic shoot & these ladies will have some great images to remember their super fly night!
