sunset in nashville

when ashley and i decided on nashville as our next trip, we thought it would be a nice break from the cold nyc weather (well at least for me because ashley lives in georgia!) and this would be a good opportunity to shoot some spring looks. however, we were shocked to see the weather forecast as the high 30s/low 40s for our entire trip and the weather channel even predicted snow for that saturday. uhh i'm sorry, what!? but with all of our spring looks packed, we had to make do! we originally had planned on stopping by the john seigenthaler pedestrian bridge (shown here) first thing in the morning after our arrival for a sunrise shoot but strong winds and freezing temperatures weren't exactly ideal. so we zipped off to a dunkin donuts to warm up and readjusted our schedule to stop at the bridge for the (cloudy) sunset.

the only reason i, and i know many other bloggers do as well, plan shoots very early in the morning is to avoid the masses of people that are inevitable during sunset hours...but this was our only option to get this classic view of downtown nashville. and of course it was just our luck that there was a hockey game where fans were crossing the bridge in their neon yellow jerseys. so we were both trying to stay warm and patient while simultaneously dodging people. we thankfully got the shots we needed with as little people in them as possible and ran back to the car for warmth!

while not everything during this trip may have gone according to plan, ashley and i had the best time! i cannot wait for our next adventure together! see you soon ashley!!
