So I recently received a call from friend and local photographer, Ned Leary. Some may know Ned for his exceptional landscape and portrait work. Lately, he and his colleague, wedding photographer¬†Will Page, are getting a lot of ¬†notoriety for their Happy video of Wrightsville Beach. First, if you haven’t seen this vid, you are slowly becoming a part of the minority as it has gone crazy viral. So take a few minutes and check it out.

Ok, back to the phone call from Ned. It seems he needed someone to help him shoot stills for their next project, Happy 2 Wrightsville Beach, Dog Days. When he told me the pay would be 2 tee shirts, I was all over this job! We assembled last night at the infamous Buddy’s Crab Shack and Oyster Bar. Buddy’s is the quintessential beach bar, although you’d be hard pressed to find a crab or oyster on the premises. As we got the plan for the shoot, the dogs began arriving and taking their place at the bar for last minute make up etc. I knew this was going to be fun and there was even an added surprise.

Scott Eastwood and Britt Robertson, who are working together on the Nicholas Sparks adaptation, The Longest Ride, which is filming locally and at other NC venues, took time out from their crazy schedules to make an appearance in Ned and Wills newest Happy project. It was a very gracious gesture by Scott and Britt and they were really good sports about the whole process. The following photos are stills from the shoot and as you can tell, a good time was had by all. We had to hurry as the weather wasn’t very cooperative, but we managed to get some good footage and I got my tee shirts! Enjoy the behind the scenes and don’t forget to stay tuned for Happy 2 Wrightsville Beach, Dog Days. Its going to be great!
