Nashville Symphony Fashion Show Featuring Zac Posen & Kelsea Ballerini

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing the 2017 Nashville Symphony Fashion Show presented by Gus Mayer. The sold out show’s featured designer was Zac Posen and his Fall 2017 Collection. I chose several favorites (noted below) that I need to find an excuse to wear! They were all stunning! Country music star, Kelsea Ballerini performed. She’s adorable, bubbly, down to earth and obviously grateful to be where she is today. Two special guests attending the event were Thomas Rhett and Savannah Chrisley. Here are some of my favorite images from a fun evening in Nashville…

Luke Bryan Concert

One of the highlights of my summer was having the opportunity to shoot the Luke Bryan concert at Oak Mountain Amphiteatre. It was thrilling to be in the pit capturing this county music superstar, then later going back stage to experience his concert from behind the scenes. All approved photographers and media are only allowed to photograph 2 songs from the pit, so it’s a rush of adrenaline to get your shots.

Luke is a fantastic entertainer and a super nice guy. Here’s a few of my favorite images…

And after getting rained on and 110% humidity (hence the really bad hair), here’s a shot of me with Luke Bryan taken by one of his staff photographers. Fun night. Great experience. I love my job and the adventures my camera takes me on.
