sass magazine fashion photoshoot at catoctin zoo

Our summer 2017 fashion photo shoot was, well, epic! How often do you get to blend fashion with exotic animals, while getting a behind-the-scenes look at the zoo. A HUGE thank you to The Catoctin Wildlife Preserve and Zoo and their staff for hosting our photo shoot and helping us with all the animals. And a big shout out to our fantastic photographer, Jessica Patterson Photography, as well as to Chic to Chic Boutique, who styled all our models from head to toe. Check out some of the fun behind-the-scenes!

Behind-the-Scenes Photos

Our Summer 17 cover model, Elisse, takes a moment to hang out with the zebras!

Our photographer, Jessica, gets a new feathery headpiece as she angles in for the shot, as Jimmy our videographer captures everything on camera.

It’s a stare off (The ostrich won!) and Jimmy makes a new feathered friend.

Elisse can’t help herself when she sees the cutest mini goat coming to say hi!

Our fashion editor, Brittany, smiles for the camera!

You want me to do what!? Katrina wins the bravest model award as she poses with this large snake.

Model Alex, gives a fierce pose while Jessica captures the shot.

The team gets ready for our shoot with some exotic (and very colorful) birds.

And that’s a wrap! If you haven’t done so already, be sure to pick up a copy of our Summer 2017 issue, or view the digital version to see our final photos!

Again, a huge thank you to our awesome photographer, Jessica Patterson, and to The Catoctin Wildlife Preserve and Zoo for hosting such an AMZING photo shoot location. Additionally, huge thanks to Sass fashion editor, Brittany Carpenter and Chic to Chic Boutique for styling our models from head to toe! Also, a big thanks to Jimmy Dow for our behind-the-scenes video. And, of course, we couldn’t have done this without our fantastic (and brave!) models, Elisse, Alex and Katrina!
