This was perhaps the most beautifully lit set I have had the pleasure of shooting this year. Generally during a set we’ll get one or maybe two well lit songs to shoot, but this was three immaculately lit songs in a slow paced three songs that gave me plenty of time to move around and get some killer shots.

And to top it off, during the third song, Ben Bridwell’s daughter ran on stage because she had something very important to tell her daddy. It was a really adorable moment and I’m so glad I was there to capture it. These photos give me a big smile every time I look at them.

The band was also in fine form on this night. All around, this was one of my favorite sets of the year. I think the concert gods are still repaying me for all the crap shoots I was forced to endure in July. Thanks concert gods!
