“Music is a safe kind of high” – Jimi Hendrix // A perfect quote for this live band photography session in Wicker Park on a rainy Friday night in Chicago.
I love all of my clients, the couples, the families, the furry kids and the corporate clients…. but when I get to shoot something totally different, like a rock band photography session, in the middle of wedding season it really reminds me of how much fun my job is! I have worked with this talented band, Crashdive, for years. They found me when I was just starting out and asked if I would come to their show and get some band photography images of their performances. After that I have shot a few different venues as well as a studio shoot for their album cover. I love these guys, they have become friends and as the members of the bands own families have grown I love that they also call me to photograph their maternity and family sessions – full circle of photography! I was super excited when the guys asked if I was a available for a Friday night event at the Debonair Club in Wicker Park where they would be performing. The past few times they have asked me I have been booked so I was super excited that I was able to capture this performance. The band has two new members and they really want to update their website and social media to introduce the guys.
Every time I see live music I’m inspired. The guys in Crashdive do not disappoint – they rocked it and they bring so much talent and energy to the stage, as you can see from the photo’s! I highly recommend checking out this band at their next gig and maybe I’ll see you there! Thanks guys – Lisa
