Concours de Elegance [car show]

I think this weekend was our busiest ever. We had weddings on Friday and Saturday and a special event shoot on Sunday afternoon at the Governor’s Mansion. Senior photography is picking up again and our weeks are booking up quickly.

The Concours de Elegance is mainly a car show but also features an art gallery and wine tasting. The purpose of the event was to raise funds for the St. Anthony Hospital Foundation, and I was hired by St. Anthony’s to photograph the event. It was a pleasure!

There were a lot of really beautiful antique cars, racing cars, custom/modified cars, new cars and even concept cars there. Here are a handful of my favorites. Hope you enjoy!

Check out this sky! What a great day to be outside…

This old Benz was originally owned by Carey Grant, if I remember correctly.

This old car won “Best in Class.” I just love all the chrome. It actually looks like the old black car (the judge) in the movie “Cars,” doesn’t it?
