So much history here. New Orleans’ own Preservation Hall Jazz Band performing their incredible music at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland Oregon, during Soul’d Out Music Festival and year or two back. As I archive and clean up our thousands of images, I run into beautiful events and fantastic memories, such as when we were given a press/photo pass to photograph this event. Our very own, local to Portland, March Fourth Marching Band came on stage alongside Preservation Hall Jazz Band, as dancers on stilts maneuvered in the crowd. Amazing night! Including the fact that we were invited to meet the band and shake their hands over a beer ;) Love our job!

The Quick and Easy Boys are a great local Portland band that simply knows how to make people move! Any party where they are the musical act, is sure to be AWESOME! We have known them for several years and love each and every one of them personally, but we also LOVE their music and whenever we have a chance, we go see them live. We highly recommend you do the same, soon! You can purchase their cds/downloads online at www.TheQuickAndEasyBoys.com but DEFINITELY go see them live! Their energy is so fun in person! Here are some images we took of their May 17th 2013 CD release party at The Wonder Ballroom, in Portland Oregon!

This is definitely not wedding-related, but certainly photo-related! :) Josh, the other half of MoscaPhoto, has an ultimate favorite band. We are both music lovers and a few of you may know that we photograph live concerts on a regular basis, on top of weddings. Well, one such band is The Boxer Rebellion. Josh photographed them on several occasions with our images being on their blogs and web sites already. One of those images was selected by the band to be the cover of their latest live album! What an honor! Needless to say that Josh is on cloud nine for this and I just HAD to share the great news with you all :)

The image below is the actual cover of their album, with Josh’s photo! We HIGHLY recommend you click on their web site link and listen to their tunes. Absolutely amazing musicians. World famous and with a huge following. Just a couple of months ago, they were on the David Letterman Show and they do come here to Portland and Seattle often. Their next show here will in at the Doug Fir on October 22nd 2011. We will be there, photographing them and singing our hearts out! :) We’ll be there, late, since we have a wedding to shoot first and foremost. Hope to see you!

Hi everyone!
As our Wedding 2010 season winds down — no more weddings shoots, just editing  and finishing up album designs :) — we are getting back in to our Concert Photography shoots.
This is exciting, since we love music and great shows tend to come to Portland during the fall/winter months.
We have a separate web site for all of our concert photography, ranging from great local bands to major label  artists. Be sure to bookmark that site and to check it often! Lots of new goodies to look through, on an ongoing basis :)
This past October 5th, I had the opportunity to photograph The Black Keys, on their second night, at the Crystal Ballroom. What an amazing show! Full house (sold out both nights) and great lighting on stage, as always.
I was granted a photo pass while my friend Carrie has the press pass, with which she got to enjoy the show and then write about it on our affiliate web site: Melophobe.
Here is a Sneak Peek of the show.
Here are links to the full set of images as well as Carries eloquent, cynical and sincere review!

Thanks for looking! :)
