Suki At The Webbys

with 5 comments

Suki was an honored guest at the 18th Annual Webby awards for her involvement as the hipster scarf version of the doge meme. This, of course, meant a whirlwind trip for Team Suki to New York City last weekend.

After exploring New York with her for the first time, we were driven straight to the red carpet, which was quite the surreal experience. Suki was her calm and confident self as dozens of press photographers pummeled us with a flurry of flash strobes. She even took a couple of interviews along the way:

We spent some time back stage with the production crew, who set up photos with a bunch of Webby Award winners and other celebrities on hand during the show.

and Grace Helbig and Pete Holmes, to name a few. See the resulting selfie here by the way. Also, watch Grace Helbig break into spontaneous song when meeting Suki.

Bridget and I were hard at work handling Suki and keeping her fixated on the cameras. Fortunately, the three of us have a ton of experience with this kind of thing 🙂

See the silver camera that photographer is holding up in the image above? That’s the brand spanking new and oh-so-beautiful Leica T. Leica was on hand to cover the event, so there were Leica cameras evvvveerryywheeere.

Since Leica was an official sponsor, they provided the swag for the Webbys. I couldn’t have asked for a better swag bag, which includes an actual Leica C camera.

WIN.

Suki enjoyed the attention and the posh accommodations. Bridget and I are exhausted. Back to normal life now.
