How do you top of a unique event like Inspire Boston? The Jug Band! These fellas and ladies have been playing every Wednesday night at the Colonial Inn for the last 30 years. After the pizza party at LensProToGo about 20 people were left and evryone migrated back to the Colonial Inn for a last couple of hours of socializing. You had 30 wedding photographers whipping out everything from their cameras to mobile phones. One time when I Looked back there were literally 5 cameras and 10 phones up and at the go. The clarinetist is the a member of the White Heat Swing Orchestra and they played a wedding I shot last spring and were a blast to listen and watch. Nothing like everyone in the band in white dinner jackets to bring a little classic class back to a wedding reception.
These were all shot using a D700 at ISO 6400. Not the prettiest pictures in the world, but when you need the shot even in the worst light they deliver! As a photojournalistic wedding photographer I’m looking to capture small moments and nights like this are great practice for weddings and more importantly, they’re a lot of fun!
