After a couple months of planning, the execution worked out perfectly. Mike reached out to me beforehand to discuss his vision. His lucky lady, Alex, wanted the cherry blossoms, and we delivered. However, it took some luck and precise timing to make these beautiful shots happen. Springtime in Washington DC has emerged slowly this year. It was only a few days before their arrival that the cherry blossoms started to bloom. Luckily, warmer temperatures in the days leading up to the shoot accelerated the timing of the peak bloom. I was thrilled that spring arrived just in time to provide a beautiful backdrop for Mike and Alex’s special moment.
Another amazing event in the books! Hosting this performance at the Beacon Rooftop was a fantastic choice. The weather was perfect and the sunset added a warm tone to the atmosphere on the rooftop where sounds were provided by DJ M Dot. After her set, Matt Shell, Nicolas Laget, and Kenny Wesley took to the stage and improved the ambiance on top of the Beacon Hotel.
I'm happy I attended this event, especially because earlier in the day I wasn't in the best of moods. Being there, elevated my day and left me feeling positive afterward.
Later in the evening, the music would take another step with the addition of some soulful vocals from Kenney Wesley. The rooftop filled up nicely with friends, family, new faces, and attendees from the first album listening party. Once the sun went down, the photo booth turned up a bit. It wasen't as popluar at the first event, however, we made some special use of it this timr around.
