Hotel Photography for Drury Plaza Hotel – Downtown Nashville
Drury Approved Hotel Photography
We love the work that we do as Drury’s approved hotel photographer and were especially excited about photographing their brand new Drury Plaza Hotel in downtown Nashville. We drive through Nashville all the time but we rarely get off the interstate when we are driving through.
What Made This Hotel Photo Shoot Unique
As with most photo shoots for new hotels, there were many items that were still being completed. The hotel is simply stunning so it was well worth the effort to work around the items that were being worked on.
The hardest part of photographing busy downtown hotels is capturing the exterior photos – especially the twilight photos. We were presented with a more difficult than normal exterior twilight shot than usual. The hotel is smack dab in the middle of downtown Nashville and it happened that sunset coincided with rush hour AND the end of a Monster Truck show letting out at the coliseum that’s right by the hotel. We had no idea how we were going to capture the shots without cars in the shots.
We always find that things have a way of working out for us and this time we had a little help from one of Nashville’s finest. There was a police officer at the intersection we were shooting from and he graciously offered to adjust the timing of the traffic lights so that Greg could capture the shots!! We shared his information with the team at Drury and we understand that they invited him to bring his family for a staycation!
Mixing Business with Pleasure
Our hotel photography business takes us through Nashville frequently but we are usually on the way to somewhere else! We had such a good time playing tourists in between our hotel photography. We listen to the Highway station on Sirius and always hear them talking about Music Row so that was our first stop. The hotel is just a few blocks from Music Row and surrounded by all of what makes Nashville great.
All in all, this turned out to be a fantastic hotel photo shoot and we are grateful for the entire team at Drury who always works so hard to make our photos turn out so well.
