I’ve known Sean and his family for a long time. From the years as backyard neighbors to all the years Sean and our son, Sam, played soccer together. They are good people and I was honored when they asked me to take Sean’s senior pictures.
I recently had the chance to shoot the Midwest Rock-n-Roll Express tour with Styx, REO Speedwagon and Ted Nugent. It was a great night of reliving some classic rock memories from my childhood and having a chance to get up close and personal to some music legends.
At a recent stop in Toledo, I had the opportunity to photograph Kari Jobe and Chris Tomlin on their Burning Lights tour. As I described in my Chris Tomlin post (click here to view), this was just an incredible show. Two amazing singers with a heart for leading worship. An inspiring and uplifting show that left everyone wanting for more.
What a show! When Chris Tomlin and Kari Jobe brought their Burning Lights Tour to The Huntington Center in Toledo, it felt more like going to church (in a good way) than going to a concert. Hearing 7,000+ people singing every line to every song was unbelievably powerful. Chris and Kari both know how to create an environment where people can not only be entertained, but can also be joined together in a worship experience like no other.
One of my goals this year was to start shooting concerts for national bands coming through town. I’m happy to report that I achieved that goal much sooner than I expected to.
Thanks to a friend of mine, we made a connection with The Huntington Center in Toledo to be able to shoot some of the events coming through town. This includes things like concerts and other sporting and entertainment events.
