This session was about 4 months in the making. Kurt and I started to brain storm ideas about a portrait photo session in May. He knew he wanted an urban-gritty feel and I knew just the place to take him. When my visit in early July didn’t allow for time to get to our location, we rescheduled for early August. Soon after our plans were solidified, Kurt started dating Chris.
I called dibs on a photo shoot with them, and made sure it was going to happen by asking if they wanted to do the photos together when I was back in Reno. I got a resounding, “Heck YES”! I couldn’t be more thrilled with the results.
I met up with the boys in down town Virginia City, Nevada and we carpooled, a bumpy and slightly scary road, to our location of American Flats. We explored the remains. I was on the hunt for some art that I hoped would still be there from my last visit back in January, and found some new gems along the way.
There are so many hidden treasures in this place and around every turn we found light and shapes that we loved.
These two were seriously gorgeous in front of my lens, but they weren’t afraid to have a little fun along the way.
Keep chasing the light, Vanessa
