From photographer Tony Hoffer of Hoffer Photography:


Gillian and her dad rode to the church in a ’69 Chevy Impala. A family member owns the car, and Gillian’s sister had used it for her wedding, as well. As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to ride in there with them.

When we started going down some country roads, I sat up on the edge of the back seat and fired away. It was a pretty tricky shot to take, to be honest—aside from the obvious danger of hanging out of a car going 45mph, you have to have a really steady hand in order to take a photo with movement like this. Luckily, I was able to get a few, and I love the feeling of the image overall.
