For this year’s celebration of the 4th of July, we went with a rustic Americana theme. I traveled with a crew to Indianapolis to shoot backstage at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse arena. Mark Vale built a distressed wood floor locally and acquired various crates, trunks and chairs for the set. He hung a large, slightly aged flag in the space. The idea was to let this feel raw, to see off the set. Sofia Karvela pulled and customized beautiful clothing for each of the seven American Divas. Charlie Langella and his team worked the lighting and the tone until we achieved the warm look we were going for. The sparklers were lit and the shoot began. What is so great about these shoots is that the Divas really the love the experience and are all so supportive of each other. Behind Charlie and I all I could hear were girls shouting to the talent on set how good she looked. It’s the best. It’s fun and positive and the pictures show it.
Look out for behind the scenes footage on E! Total Divas. Below are some of my favorites. The full gallery is HERE.
Happy 4th of July!
