One of our highlights for 2013 has been We Day in Seattle. We were asked to be their celebrity photographer to capture some of the stars wearing the Me to We Artisans jewellery line after they came off stage.
We have never experienced anything quite like it. Some of the people we rubbed shoulders with (or more accurately tried not to stare at) were Magic Johnson, MC Hammer, Jennifer Hudson, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Martin Luther King III, Canadian Tenors, Nelly Furtado, Kid President, Pete Carroll and four Seattle Seahawks, Martin Sheen and Hedley to name the ones who I can remember off the top of my head.
The We Day team is phenomenal and run a very efficient and smooth event. When you are coordinating that many celebrities, you need to be prepared for anything. So we watched from back stage and tried to act natural as we were interacting with and photographing people we’ve only read about before.
Jennifer Hudson had one of the largest crowds of people following her around and there was lots going on at the time so it’s a bit of a blur. One thing I do remember though is she knows how to work a camera!
