Sunshine Slam – Game #1 v S. Illinois

Happy Thursday, everyone! I was hoping to get this gallery up yesterday, but I got hit with the flu. I mean HIT – I didn’t do much of anything but sleep. Now that I’m feeling better, though – you’re going to get all three Sunshine Slam games in the next few days. So GET EXCITED!

UTSA Men’s Basketball headed to Orlando last week to participate in the Sunshine Slam. The weather was beautiful and the gym had some of the best lighting I’ve done action shots in. All of the guys have this really cool sheen on the photos that I think is absolutely amazing.

The fellas took on Southern Illinois in the first game of this tournament. I had to do a little Googling to actually understand what a Saluki was, but after that – I was totally down for their mascot. Upon seeing the guys on the other team, I knew it was going to be a fast paced game that was filled to the top with excitement and aggression. They didn’t disappoint, either!

Despite not getting the result they were looking for, the guys fought hard. You can see the absolute tenacity in their faces as the game progresses. I even included a shot or two of the fans that were just as into the game as the athletes were. If you’ve never seen these guys play, make sure you come out and catch a game or two during the season. They may not always win, but they always put on a show.

As you go through these, enjoy the exquisite lighting and the cool angle I got to shoot at. There wasn’t a media line to speak of, so I got to get up close and personal more than I usually do. It’s so exciting to be a part of the game in that way – & I hope it shows!

*Fellas, if you’d like any of these photos – please message me! I’ll gladly give you the better quality photo. & if you decide to use them on social media, a tag would be amazing.

There you have it! Check back in a couple days to see Game #2 of the Sunshine Slam. I got so many good shots throughout the weekend that I’m so very excited to share with all of you guys!

We’re currently booking our holiday sessions and man – it’s getting really really busy! If you’re looking to have some photos done, please make sure you book a session soon. It’s one of the peak times for basketball and we’re already pretty booked for the rest of the month! We’re also offering our cheapest prices of the year – so don’t miss out!

I’m also really excited to announce our Flower Vault mini sessions! They just put together their Christmas installation and it’s gorgeous – which means I have to make sure I shoot you gorgeous people there at least a time or two. This upcoming Saturday (11/16) and Sunday (11/17) we’re headed to Flower Vault from 12-5. You can use the contact form at the bottom of this post to grab yourself a spot – I’ve already filled a few out already!

As always, thank you for your support. This is a dream, and it’s only possible because of all you beautiful humans that contribute to it. Whether that’s booking a session, looking at a photo, or simply reading this post. Thank you! You are all the best and we’re soooo grateful!

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…
