Hip New Jersey x New Jersey Family at SoJo Spa Club
While prancing around in a bikini isn’t exactly my favorite thing to do on video, I can’t deny the fun I had filming at Edgewater‘s SoJo Spa Club one summer Monday morning. Hip New Jersey was there to shoot a collaboration with New Jersey Family magazine as part of their Bucket List series. Their readers named SoJo the best spa experience in the state, and why wouldn’t they? With their luxe amenities, multiple pampering options, a variety of immune-boosting saunas, and a rooftop infinity pool that looks out to breathtaking NYC views, I can’t think of a better place to relax this side of the Jersey Shore.
Behind the scenes, we shot this video in about an hour. We would run from sauna to sauna, and I laid still for about two minutes as the cameraman got his shots. When it came time to film their outdoor bath area, we knew we wanted a shot of me in the waterfall. The only problem was, I’m sensitive to cold water, so in between each take I would run to their carbon-rich bath to warm up. Sorry to pull the veil back from all the “glamour” of filmmaking, but there is no such thing as a “relaxing” shooting experience!
It wasn’t all hurry-up offense though; in order to get the drone shots needed of the infinity pool, I got to take a leisurely swim. It was very nice–in the middle of the hustle and bustle–to be able to soak in the sights and enjoy the moment.
