Work today in association with The BMP Film Co. For one very special evening the alley dubbed "Couch" in historic downtown Chicago was transformed for an extraordinary event hosted by Activate of the Chicago Loop Alliance. A collective of artists, artwork, & performances became an interactive exhibit where by simply participating the public became part of the art.
Work today in association with Leap weddings for the the wedding celebration of Mary & Mike at the Drake Hotel in downtown Chicago. Robbert Poissant and I enjoyed a beautiful summer day with a great group of people. And we had a special photo-shoot with Juno the English bulldog.
Life & work this week in association with Leap Weddings. I had the privileged of traveling with Ben Mahoney to Denver Colorado five days ahead of schedule for the wedding celebration of Stefani + Matt AKA the Lucas. I am super glad we did because after 30 years at sea level my body needed to adjust to the altitude change! While adjusting we enjoyed capturing Denver as a character for this wedding film. We enjoyed the hospitality of the Lucas at their gorgeous home in Golden Colorado. Also we enjoyed shooting a much anticipated music video with the entire bridal party!
ork today in association with Leap Weddings, working along side Caesar Martinez for the wedding celebration of Alex + Jason. We just had the best day at Lake Geneva's Abby Resort. We made a new photographer friend Jordan Imhoff Photography who was just a pleasure to work with. The ceremony took place by the lake where Jason proposed. The reception was amazing! The room was gorgeously crafted by Derrick Taylor of Tiffany & CO, who also is a top notch planner and a bastion of tranquility in the chaos of a wedding reception. The entertainment for the evening was the band Green Thirteen. This group has a lot of great energy and they were very accommodating to help us capture great audio all day!
Work today in association with Leap Weddings, working along side Caesar Martinez for the wedding celebration of Joyce + Scott. The ceremony and reception took place at the Holiday Inn of downtown Chicago. We got to work along side one of the best photographers in the game, Colin Lyons and went on an epic photo shoot in great weather. DJ Kate of Toast and Jam is always a blast to work with. There was a Korean ceremony that took place called the Paebaek, so the whole party left the banquet room right when the dance floor opened...I walked in to grab a light and she was playing funk lowly and dancing with the bridesmaids.
Work today in association with ChicaGo Video Works, a refferal from Carl Wiedemann We spent the day operating one of three steadicams rigs that were covering the annual Navy Chef competition located at the Great Lakes Naval Base. Imagine a well disciplined, clean environment where creativity is encouraged and teamwork is essential...
Happy 4th of July! I woke up to find out that James proposed to my mother yesterday. So we gave them a complementary impromptu engagement photo session around the art museums downtown.
Work today in association with Leap Weddings for the wedding celebration of Dina + Tom. It's always such a lovely time to celebrate the 4th of July weekend with a wedding! Dina + Tom threw a freedom fest for the record books. We got to play with the Phantom 3 today, and our drone game grows stronger!
Work today at All About You Media we were taking some time to learn the art of the FOG. Personal transportation units for city and rural is here. Its cheap, form factor & energy efficient. Today was also the start of what is going to be an epic July 4th weekend! My mother came into town to visit. We went to see U2 play at the united center for the iNNOCENCE and eXPERIENCE tour...about 30 minutes into the show she turns to me and says..."I don't think I like U2"...So we left early, I am not really a fan of enclosed amphitheater concerts, I would have much preferred to see them play at an outdoor venue. Cool visuals though, they definitely live up to the hype and at one point shortly before we left there as a ballad by Johnny Cash.
