I agreed to shoot this event months ago, but I thought it would be part of the Weezer and Panic! At The Disco summer tour. Photo approval for this festival was sort of last minute due to the confusion, but I was super excited once I saw the full line-up.
The Sacramento heat was surprising, since it was well in to fall. I made the mistake of showing up in black long sleeve shirt and skinny jeans. Luckly, there were a few consignment tents around and I was able to pick up a cheap pair of shorts.
Once I changed clothes, I spent most of my time running around snapping photos. The set times were short since there were so many artist on the bill.
I got to snap photos of Phantogram, 888, Waters, and The Unlikely Candidates for the first time. It was cool to finally catch Phantogram since I missed the band's set time at this years OutsideLands.
I also got to photograph The Struts and Andrew McMahon again.
This series of Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness photos is my favorite thus far. I feel as though I've gotten pretty familiar with the band's stage presence and it came across in this set of photos.
Then of course there was Weezer, who I've listened to since I was a tiny little elementary school girl. The band spent most of the set wearing funky hats and joking around.
My favorite to photograph was Panic! At The Disco. I loved Brendon Urie's energy. He was moving around so much, it was hard to take a bad photo because there were tons of great moments to catch.
