Wantagh, NY 9.15.12 – Florence + the Machine spread their wings out on a beautiful summer night under the stars at Jones Beach. This show turned out to be one of the highlights to my summer. I had always wanted to photograph her and see a live show. She’s both equally beautiful physically and vocally. To saw I was a bit awestruck when she hit the stage would be an understatement. From her first note she captivated both me and the audience. From there she had us in the palm of her hand moving foward. There were a few times I caught myself within the first 3 songs just amazed by her vocal prowess and stage presence where I just stopped shooting and watched her flutter around the stage, beautiful dress flowing around and behind her. After the third song, I headed up to my seat where I was told that I missed a shooting star fly over the stage as she cast her spell on her audience.
