We teamed up with City Girl Weddings and Events and White House Black Market for the official launch of

various vendors, and many potential clients. Part of the promotion was for us and other photographers to
take models around the city for mock wedding photoshoots to show off the types of weddings City Girl plans,
style of photographers they work with, not to mention help generate buzz!

Chi-Town Pulse

Friday, March 19th, 2010

I started swing dancing in college. It’s been great as a social activity, a form of exercise, and even as a method of introducing me to new music. Moving to Chicago gave me the opportunity to really explore the blues. The local blues community, though small, is passionate.

Recently, a member of the community created the short fictional film Chi-Town Pulse, which is set in the Chicago blues dance scene. They had their first public showing at a red carpet premiere recently, and I was asked to assist with photography. Special thanks to Keir for letting me try out his new 50/1.2L lens for the night (thus, all of these were taken with that lens 🙂

Here are some shots from the night:
