The Big Four Bridge Portraits – Louisville’s New Pedestrian Bridge

I only had one day to plan, but when I found out the Big Four Pedestrian Bridge was opening I just had to shoot there! After waiting not so patiently, the renovated railroad bridge was finally going to open its spectacular view of Downtown Louisville and the Ohio River to the public on February 7th.  Five awesome high school Juniors were willing to go play with me and rolled with all the challenges. It was a chilly, windy, and definitely crowded with people enjoying the unusually beautiful February day.  Poor Gretchen was last to go and in a sleeveless dress.  She didn’t complain one bit about the cold and the fact that I wouldn’t quit shooting with that amazing twilight sky background!   Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer even stopped to talk to us and requested a picture with her (do you blame him?)

Thanks to Jennifer Lindsey, Hayley Stankiewicz, Amanda Malakas, Matt French, and Gretchen Bell for being fabulous models!  You should being seeing more from most of them when we do their Senior Portraits later this year.  And an extra special thanks to my assistant Autumn McDuffie 🙂

Some shots were a little harder than others to get.  We had lots of onlookers…
