Extol March - April 2020 - Page 51

December 2015/January 2016 Country crooners Dave & Whitney kept us in stitches for most of the shoot. The Southern Indiana natives were – are – so talented and funny. Really, really funny. February/March 2016 Photographer Antonio Pantoja made magic during the photo shoot with Terry Meiners at Le Moo in Louisville. The story was about an upcoming charity roast of the region’s most well-known radio deejay. I was one of the roasters and stressed so much about how to roast someone I consider a friend. There’s video of Terry’s roast out there someone. It was definitely an unforgettable night. April/May 2016 We shot the cover and other photos at Kopp’s Lakes in Clarksville, which my husband and I have frequented several times when we just want to fish but don’t have time to drive very far. If you’ve ever been, you’ll know why most people are surprised this issue was shot there. I mean, Kopp’s is great, but it isn’t exactly what you’d think of when going for glamour. Except, I was pretty sure the location would make a perfect backdrop in the hands of photog extraordinaire Antonio Pantoja and Extol Creative Director Adam Kleinert. Not all of my decisions are gold, but they ensured this one was. Renowned New Albany hat maker Rebecca Vance, who has since passed, made the fascinator specially for this dress. What a special lady she was. EXTOL : FEBRUARY/MARCH 2020 49
