They got the shots, but the Friendly Airplane Agency had words with the pilot when they landed. Today, I wouldn't do anything like that without asking the FAA first.

Even fitting the mount to the plane needs to be done by a qualified technician.
I expect if you check around the specialist aerial camera work companies they'll have suitable aircraft mounts.
If you don't want the paperwork etc, the only way is to handhold.

Rigging to planes is serious stuff. Don't do anything that is not approved by the FAA, the pilot, and your insurer. If any of these give you any reply less than "OK" in writing, do what they require for approval. When in doubt get a qualified person to perform the procedure. Like Brian said, the best thing in your case will probably be handheld and INSIDE the plane.
