FashMobReno Up Close with Reno Fashion Photographer Team Matt and Jentry
As Wedding Photographers, you may not know us as a Reno Fashion Photographer team, but we LOVE to venture outside of our comfort zone and do something totally different here and there. FashMobReno was one of those things…so excited and so different from our normal photographer activities! We photographed the super fun FashMobReno Fash Mob during the Midtown ArtWalk in July, but we also photographed the FashMobReno Up Close event the following week. Rain almost brought this event indoors at a different location, but I’m glad the raindrops let up just in time, because the night could not have been more beautiful at Sierra Water Gardens. This was a much more relaxed version of the Fash Mob…and so fun! We were stoked to be able to photograph all the models again, to meet new models in the looks created by designers Tessa Dee Miller, Karen McKeon Hancock, Cicely Margo and Aric Shapiro, and to also capture the FashMobReno Up Close atmosphere. It was so gorgeous! AJ, FashMobReno’s own videographer, busted his booty to create a documentary to play at this event, which brought me to tears after being involved in this AMAZING project. PS – thank you to Derek Osborne for dropping what you were doing to come bring us a special computer part to get the projector to play…you’re our hero for that one!! Anyway, before I go off on a long rant about how much I love FashMobReno and the designers, artists, models, and other talented people involved, I’ll just say that it was truly an extreme honor to be a part of this. Extreme. Honor.
