My assistant and I found ourselves in one of those engagement shoots we wish happened every day: amazing couple, shorts, two wonderful dogs, flip flops, a lake and a boat. One of the best things about being a photographer is meeting people from all over that are teachers, politicians, computer techs, ranchers, cooks, programmers and of course trainers for Seaworld!
We had an amazing shoot and once I realized the bride is a trainer at Seaworld I had to ask to bring our kids and let them meet her. After a couple of weeks of planning around vacations and photo-shoots we picked a day and it was one the kids (or us) will never forget.
There are a couple of things: Yes the water is cold. They are big.. like 6,000+ pounds big. They know over 200 commands and love ice. Did I mention they are huge!?
The video below is of her showing Kellie and the kids hand signals to killer whales. Wow.
