This weekend I photographed singer David Archuleta, Lexi Walker (the young 12 year old singing sensation), and the talented Kendra Lowe as part of a private charity fund-raiser for the group Rising Star Outreach, which helps leprosy colonies in India.
I think most people recognize David Archuleta, Lexi you may recognize because I recently photographed and featured her on my blog, and the talented Kendra Lowe used to be the musical director and accompanist for David and is now the musical director, accompanist, and arranger for Lexi (amongst a host of other things that she does musically).
The evening started with me photographing the artists as they prepped and warmed up. Here is Kendra and Lexi singing and doing hair.
The private concert was held at a gorgeous home with a beautiful yard, that was seemingly built for such events. The stage was a balcony beyond a swimming pool that jutted out over a beautiful canyon. As they were warming up, the sun was setting and the canyon looked beautiful behind them. By nightfall, a canyon wind blew through the stage area which made for a great atmosphere.
And then after the show, we all went inside to an area where I’d set up some studio lighting. Here I photographed all the donors and guests with David and Lexi. These images were created as gifts to each of the guests from the organization. It was a great idea and a wonderful way for everyone to remember the evening.
At the end of the night as we were cleaning up and loading out gear, I got a fun shot with Kendra.
A special thanks to Rising Star Outreach for all they do for people with leprosy and for having me photograph their classy event.
If you’re having an important event and need some great photography, give me a call at 801-728-3317 and let’s talk about it. I’d love to help make your event memorable and wonderful. And if you would like some new family portraits for the holidays, it’s a great time to get in. In fact there are still fall leaves falling here in my outdoor studio gardens.
And look through my main website which shows a large portfolio of photographs from families to high school seniors to weddings, BryCox.com.
And until next time, America.
