This was a blog by the gentleman – T. J. Dreschel – who photographed the Houghs in Utah over the holidays. He’s a travel and destination photographer and it sounds like it was a fun job! You can read the whole article, but I’ve put an excerpt below.
And like any successful traveler, Drechsel was able to mix a little business with pleasure.
Through a mutual friend, he was introduced to Julianne and Derek Hough, the brother-sister celebrity duo from the television show “Dancing With The Stars.” The Houghs, who are from Utah, were also in Park City and Drechsel was in charge of shooting a family portrait.
“They are pretty down-to-Earth Hollywood people,” said Drechsel, who took photos of the family outdoors in multiple locations with the snowy Utah mountains in the backdrop.
“There was Julianne, Derek, their mother and three sisters. It was the first time they had all been together in a really long time and I had my camera with me so the whole photo shoot came together organically.”
