Last night Jenn and I hit the 9:30 Club to see Kate Nash. We had a great spot just about five rows back from the stage. I have to say that this is a case of the limitations of the equipment (and not the photographer!), since this photo was taken with my BlackBerry:
The show was good – some songs were absolutely amazing, but one or two songs were strange (she was screaming at the top of her lungs), so I’ll just say the show was good. A solid B+. She’s so cute in person, with all of her little British mannerisms.
And today I took the day off from the day job (this was planned way in advance – no I didn’t play hooky!) and had the pleasure of second-shooting at a wedding for Shelby Leigh, who is an absolute doll to work with. I was a little stressed out after the crazy Friday afternoon traffic going up to Baltimore, but as soon as I met up with Shelby I was instantly at ease. She has a very laid-back, fun presence, and I ended up having a great time. I’ve been so fortunate to have such good experiences working with other photographers so far. Two weeks ago I was able to work with Sarah Hodzic on a small intimate wedding, and she was just super amazing as well. Really calm and cheerful. I’m totally digging getting to work with other photographers!
