Valise are very talented recent friends from right here in the South. These guys hosted an incredibly successful release show at Three Links in Deep Ellum for their debut full-length Young Bloomer, right before they headed out on tour with Copeland. We met up early for some promo shots.

Tour just ended a few days ago, so this is my final installment of the Lovetap Tour photo journal! It flew by. Love to look back and see how far this band has come- 20 out of 26 shows sold out!

Since my last post, we’ve covered Kansas City, Denver, SLC, Portland, Santa Ana, & the motherland LA! (Seattle and San Fran as well, but I flew home to shoot a few weddings that weekend.) Hunter Hunted joined up and we inherited some more girls on tour! They are fab- check them out. We had some really rad, huge venues in there. And SoCal is always a pleasure of course, finishing it off at the El Rey!

#ALMfancam went SO well! Stay tuned for a blog post dedicated to some of my favorite shots from your disposable cameras over the last couple of months! And if you don’t already, follow me on IG, Twitter, and Snapchat (@annaleemedia) for continuing photo updates & BTS!

What an emotional show. Anberlin has been with me for years, and I’ve seen them almost as many times as I’ve seen any band live. Very cool to get to shoot this killer performance and to see some crew friends again from the Honda Civic Tour! It was also neat to see my Austin buddy Chris’s band for the first time, Nominee, open for them. Main support was Dayshell.

February 16-17th, 2013

Every year I struggle to come up with a birthday activity that is unique and enjoyable for all involved. This year, it just so happened that a band I LOVE (The Burning Hotels) was playing a rare show the weekend right before my birthday. The only problem is that the band and show were Fort Worth. Solution? Birthday road trip with a handful of my closest friends! I decided to take my camera along (of course) for some freestyle, candid shots with a documentary flavor. P.S. My camera was occasionally commandeered by my sister Kathryn, and who knows who else.

Only one photo of the actual show is included, as The Wild Rooster was very dark, but we had a great time hanging out and listening!

We had no idea who this guy was.

Nice day to climb in a tree. With a sign posted right next to it that clearly read, “For your safety, do not climb in tree.” But what do they know.

Then a few of us continued on to the Stockyards and caught the… cattle run?
