2013 in Photos: Our Favorite Moments

Tift Merritt at the Speakers in Code 3rd Birthday Concert at Off Broadway in St. Louis | Photo by Louis Kwok

We've had quite a year at Speakers in Code, from our 3rd Birthday concert with Tift Merritt back in February, to Lollapalooza in Chicago, to LouFest in St. Louis, to a portrait session with Basia Bulat, all the way to Pearl Jam in Oklahoma City. It's been the thrill of a lifetime.

We would like to thank all our photographers for capturing such wonderful moments for us to enjoy for many years to come. We would also like to thank the publicists, the venues, and everyone in between for giving us such amazing access to do what we love. Here are some of our favorite shots of 2013, all of which were shot for this site. Thank you.

  1. Great job picking these jewels from I'm sure thousands of pictures. Personally, the Frightened Rabbit at Red Rocks pic is just EPIC.
