Workshop shoot with JK and CC

So last weekend I hosted a little personal workshop for my very good friends and most talented photographers Jessica Kettle of Jessica Kettle Photography and Carly Carlson of Carly Carlson Photography. Jessica found this really awesome abandoned house down in American Fork and rounded up some models for the shoot. We got there just before sundown and shot into the night. This house that we shot in was very very old and had the most awesome wallpaper and exposed bricks. However, once it got pitch black, I must admit that I was very spooked. Then while we were shooting in the pitch black, we heard a couple noises coming from upstairs, but Jessica was determined to nail this backlit shot with the pocket wizards. Then a loud bang quickly ended the session as we all ran out of the house screaming. Lol, talk about terrifying, I think I may have watched to many scary movies. Anyways, here were a couple of my favorites from the session.

Great pictures!! I've been to that house in AF, and I've heard that it's definitely haunted. When I tried to take pics there the owners arrived and thought we were drug dealers. I thought the cops were going to be called on us...a bit scary there.
