Jacquelyn Dupree : Nashville Music Photographer

Trying to catch up on the blog posts!  So behind!  Here are some favorites from my photo shoot with singer Jacquelyn Dupree!  Jacquelyn was featured on last year’s American Idol season and has an album coming out soon!  She is so amazing, and was so much fun to work with from start to finish.  First of all, I could not have asked for a better crew.  Special thanks to Creative Director Philip Lucia who scouted the location, but went through great lengths to make sure we had all the tools we needed to complete the vision.  He was practically an Army Ranger during the whole thing!  Also, many thanks to Stylist and Makeup Artist Jenni Enno for all her hard work and effort, as well as Jazz Davis who kept Jacquelyn’s hair looking awesome, even in the July heat!  Jacquelyn’s Dad was also a huge help, and he was such a great sport when the canoe flipped over.  While he was in it.  🙂  Here are some of my favorites from the shoot, including a few bloopers along the way!

Jacquelyn’s Dad from the shore:  “Hey Philip, did you anchor that canoe down?”

I snapped a few photos of Jacquelyn laughing as he swam out to get it!  She has an awesome laugh!  And yes, I had to get in the canoe to get to the rock I needed to stand on to shoot… nothing like having thousands of dollars of equipment strapped to you in a boat at sunrise, but it was worth it!


Also snapped this shot of Jacquelyn trying to avoid the gross stuff on the rocks once we finished this setup. 

All I can say is after being up at 4:30 am and shooting all day in the hot Alabama July, I am super glad I was behind the camera for this one, but I must say, the rest of the crew looks pretty darn good!

    Loved your blog! I could help but laugh when I saw Philip fetching the canoe and remembering when jazz yelled “MAN DOWN! MAN DOWN!” as dad flipped the canoe! Such an amazing shoot!
