I showed up to photograph a wedding and became part of a music video for Justin Courtney Pierre's new album, ‘In the Drink,’ which comes out on Friday, October 12. I cannot think of a better way to spend the day than eating pizza in a soybean field with these talented and hilarious folks.
The bride Lydia Liza was not harmed during the making of this video, but the groom Jason Douglas was repeatedly kicked in the crotch.
Jason had one of my favorite quotes of the day, "When I first saw Justin Courtney Pierre play a show a few years ago, I thought to myself, 'Yeah, some day this guy is totally going to kick me in the nuts. It will be awesome.'" Two weeks later, he's recovering nicely.
One thing lost in translation on this shoot was the beautiful red color of the get-away car, a 1970’s Delta 88 Oldsmobile. It looked stunning against the gray skies and yellow fields.
