I’ve spent much of my 2018 with The Struts, for what has turned into quite an amazing year and experience. This summer, the guys continued their run supporting the legendary Foo Fighters.

During the Foo’s set, Luke came on stage to cover “Under Pressure” with Taylor Hawkins, while Dave Grohl hopped on the drums. Almost every night following that performance, Dave blew us away with generous compliments about The Struts proclaimed to thousands of people every night. Check out my tour recap video below for an interview with Luke, and a peek into that experience.

This post covers the weeks we spent with them in April in the Southern US, before starting a month-long tour of our own headliners (stay tuned for those photos in the next post).

JOYWAVE | 30STM Monolith Tour 2018

This summer on the Monolith Tour, I also had the pleasure of working with Joywave. Any amount of time with them is not enough. Amazing people, and they may or may not play more than one song in their set. Because they do whatever the hell they want.

MISTERWIVES | Monolith Tour 2018

Posted by annaleemedia in Tour - (0 Comments)

I never know what to expect going into each tour, and I certainly can never guess which ones will be the most amazing and meaningful. The live set is always at the center of everything, but what you can never account for is the incredible and specific chemistry that each bill of bands produces backstage and on the road. It’s the memories that only those on the tour get to take away. With MisterWives we had the pleasure of supporting 30 Seconds To Mars along with Joywave and Walk The Moon, so there were quite a few new and long-time friends on this tour for me!

Here are just some of my favorite images of MisterWives on the Monolith Tour this summer. At the end of this post are some of my images of WTM and 30STM. And check back soon for a full Joywave post!

The Night Game supported by The Band Camino at El Rey in Los Angeles. I’m so impressed by both of these bands and got completely lost in this show. Didn’t know what to expect, but was blown away! The Band Camino gives me all the feels, and I highly recommend seeing TNG live if you have the chance. Vibe city.

My first time seeing these two thanks to my buddy/TM Ryan. Was blown away by both, and can’t wait to see what’s in the pipe for Ms. Chelsea!

Best of 30

Posted by annaleemedia in Personal - (0 Comments)

This is the 4th year of my “Best Of” blog post! Every year on my birthday, I complete the challenging tradition of selecting my favorite 100 photos taken since my last birthday- from epic moments to quiet & beautiful ones. (See last year’s here.) I’m attached to each of these photos for their own specific reason.

In my 30th year, I continued touring & traveling- shooting music, weddings, and many things in between. Thanks to everyone who has hired me, collaborated with me, supported me, and/or followed the journey online. Really excited about everything that’s coming up in year 31, and thankful for the people I’m doing life with. Enjoy!

Wyatt Clough invited me to come spend two days in the desert while he and Roger Galvez directed a narrative video for Silverstein’s “Whiplash”. It was just released yesterday, so I’m excited to share the BTS photo set- one of my favorite sets from all last year! The desert is my absolute favorite shooting environment, and it was so fun to get out and do something a little different.

I knew LAUV was something special when I first heard him at School Night in LA… about a year ago? I met up with him in his home studio a few months ago. We talked about life, coffee, music, and took some pics. He’s already selling out his own world tours, and I can’t wait to see what else he puts out.
