ever see the Seinfeld episode where George is at a kids birthday party and he smells smoke…and proceeds to push men, women and children out of the way to get out of the apartment? guilty!
met up w Cassandra + Brendan for a quick engagement shoot before their wedding in October and we met up in Bayers Lake. I have no idea why we picked that location but i just figured we try something new and see what came from it.
all was going well. I was having fun and it was all very industrial until Cassandra said, “Hey lets go into those tree”. Sure. I like trees. Why not.
Find cool tree. Set up pose. Hear strange buzzing sound. Realize we are being attacked by hornets. not one or two hornets…but a shit load of hornets. I had hornets on my neck, on my shirt, down the rip of my jeans, in my hair and all around me. I have no idea where they were on Brendan and Cassandra because she said, “hornets!” and I split…right after I tossed my (second) 5D mkII onto the pavement. i’m pretty sure I screamed like a girl too.
poor Cassandra took the brunt of it. She got stung about 5 times…but we kept shooting. Hands down the toughest girl I’ve ever met.
so just a recap if you’re following along: 2009 = deep water caves, really high, rotten bridges, sky scraper/no railing rooftop shoots, hornet attacks and torrential rains. are you kidding me?
