It takes a lot of planning, and a lot of talented people working together to create a Wells Fargo stagecoach photo shoot. On our YouTube Channel this month, we’re taking you behind the scenes to see how it all came together in Middleburg, Virginia.

First, some background. (You can’t have a photo shoot without a stupendous background, right?) The Concord stagecoach is Wells Fargo’s corporate icon,  representing our 160-plus-year heritage of working together with customers to guide them along their financial journey. Every nuance—from the diversity of the team and passengers, the dynamic forward movement—shows the strength, stability, and authenticity of Wells Fargo.

Our stagecoaches roll in community events nearly every day, coast to coast. (And on occasion, internationally.) Stagecoaches are featured on our printed materials, online and in broadcast media. We display 9 historic Concord coaches in our History Museums.

The first documentary video, The Making of a Stagecoach Photo Shoot, shows what it takes to plan and execute such a large-scale photo shoot. Watch it now (link to YouTube) to experience the journey from the viewpoint of the people and horses who worked together to produce this gorgeous springtime stagecoach photography.

And be sure to check back each week to see the rest of our series of behind-the-scenes documentary videos:

  • Building the Coach shows how our stagecoaches are built by expert craftsmen in preparation for a photo shoot.

    • Training the Team is a fascinating ride with our husband-and-wife horse training team, as they prepare the horses to pull the stagecoach for the photo shoot.
  • The Art and the Vision explores what inspired our photographer, cinematographer, and producer to create our beautiful stagecoach photography and film footage.

This photo shoot was an exhilarating, once-in-a-lifetime experience for everyone involved. We hope you will watch and enjoy these videos this month, and share them with your friends!

    Is there any chance you guys could post the old Christmas commercial from the 1990s where the stagecoach brings a tree to the old western town? I LOVED that one and it brings back so many memories. I’d love to see it again. Thanks.
