PRESCOTT, AZ - Graduation season means it's time for those memorable senior pictures. How creative are you planning on getting?
Love is in the air in Prescott, where a high school senior from Prescott High School decided to dedicate all his senior photos to the love of his life: Subway sandwiches.
Zachary Sweeney, 18, decided to take all his pictures inside his favorite sandwich shop. The pictures taken by Prescott photographer Chad Castigliano of Chronicker Photography portray a young man affectionately posing with his favorite sandwiches.
Castigliano said he wanted to capture the moment as naturally as he could and got ideas from other senior portraits he had seen.
As for the teenager, his advice to all high school seniors, is to be different — but also true to yourself.
"Everybody takes these photos out in the woods but you and I both know, half of these people couldn't survive a day out in the woods. I wanted to do something different and fun. I love sandwiches. I literally dream about sandwiches. All my buddies think I'm nuts for it. I just think they're beautiful, just like a work of art. It makes me a little teary eyed when I go make that sandwich in the line," said Sweeney.
"He says he likes sandwiches because he gets to choose what he wants on it," added Castigliano.
By the way, his favorite sandwich is just basic ham.
