If you would have told me I would be given the opportunity to shoot my favorite band and be front row at the same time, I would’ve never believed you. So so thankful for this night. I have been dreaming, hoping, praying, what have you for another LANY show. After the tour ended I thought my chances to see the boys again before the end of the year were up. Then the music gods gave us the Clemson show, which quite literally was LANY’s last show of 2019.
LANY is one of those bands that emits nothing but love and positivity. Imagine bottling up the purse joyous energy of the perfect sunset. That’s what it feels like listening to LANY. Like most people, music holds a very specific place in my heart. My playlists and favorite songs are a snapshot of what I’m experiencing at that moment in time. There’s a LANY song for so many perfect and not-so-perfect memories, delicately etched into my brain. Needless to say, being able to see this band perform twice in one year was a blessing all on its own. Shoutout to my angels, they really gave me this one.
Big thank you to Tiger Paw Productions for allowing me to shoot this show. And bigger thank you to Paul, Jake, and Les for quite literally making my dreams come true. In photography, they tell you you should not overshoot. And to be conscious of every photo. But hell, I just shot my favorite band. I’m taking photos until my shutter runs out! Here’s part one of LANY x Clemson.
