Wedding Smash-Up! {Shoot & Mingle 2012}

“Holy crap.  That’s a lot of cars…”, I thought to myself as I crested the hill to White’s Service and Salvage in Germanton, NC. I know what you’re thinking. Germa-what? Yeah, me too.  This place was the Disney World of salvaged vehicles. All were precariously perched on a mountainside that was probably better suited to raising cattle like the rest of this man’s neighbors. But WOW, the possibilities.  What an absolute HONOR it was to attend the first ever Shoot & Mingle hosted by the very talented and extremely gracious Cindy McFarland of Cindy McFarland Photography and Ashley Turner of A Photo By Ashley who found this gem of a place… amidst all of the cows.

This was a styled shoot with about 22 other photographers, all of whom I’ve never met until this day.  To say I was nervous was an understatement.  I got out of my car and I was immediately greeted by the smiling faces of some amazing women, and one adventurous man that were all here to get down to business. About 20 minutes into the shoot, it began to rain.  Looking at the photos, you would never be able to tell.  The models’ hair and makeup stayed in pristine condition over the course of a three hour shoot again… in.the.rain.  If that’s not a testament to these folks ability for your big day, I don’t know what is! Please check out the vendors at the end of this post who were so generous with their ability and time. On to the HOTNESS!

What was the craziest place you’ve ever seen a wedding held at?

Oh, and did you get the “Smash Up” title of the post? Because it’s a junk yard with smashed up cars… and they smashed the cake…. Ya get it? Cool. As long as my humor wasn’t wasted. :)
