John and Allison were married at Honky Tonk’s Secret Garden in Pilsen and I was the lucky dude that photographed it.  We started out at their place, where they had their first looks of each other and then we paraded on down to the Garden where the guests were already waiting to witness this union.  It was great!  They kissed under an explosion of confetti, dined and danced into a sweaty frenzy.  This was such a cool and unique wedding and I’m honored to have been a part.  Way to go John and Allison!  Thanks for having me!

ART AND LIZ

Art and Liz had a pretty sweet little wedding at Prairie Productions. First I met with Art at a nearby hotel as he finished getting all groomed up. Then I sprinted over to the venue as Liz was having her final touches of makeup applied. As the guests arrived, Liz hid out of sight. Art made his way to the front of the congregation and waited for his first glimpse of Liz. Our couple exchanged vows and sealed it with a kiss. Now it was time to wine dine and Party! Everybody twisted the night away as Emily, from Toast and Jam, kicked out the tunes. It was such a lovely wedding great group to photograph. Congrats Art and Liz!

NIK TURNER’S HAWKWIND, KILLER MOON AND PLASTIC CRIMEWAVE SYNDICATE

Here are some pics from a psyched-out nutzoid show that happened at Reggies a couple weeks back.  First, Plastic Crimewave Syndicate  bashed through some spaced out punk jams, then Killer Moon oozed some droney, tripped out tunes, and then Nik Turner’s Hawkwind  hit the stage. I love the Hawkwind of the yesteryears and heard that there were currently two versions of this legendary band touring and fighting over who gets to be called Hawkwind so who knew if this would be any good.  Man!  This thing floored me.  Nik’s band was composed of some dudes from a bunch of classic British punk bands and they totally ripped through a ton of Hawkwind’s Space Ritual era songs.  It was so unbelievably good, it cruised along for at least an hour and a half, and I was really sad that it ended.  I can’t wait to see David Brock’s Hawkwind in March!

KATIE AND MARIO

Katie and Mario got hitched at a Hubbard St. design studio that was converted into a spacious party ground for one steamy night in August.  We took a stroll around the hood, snapped some shots and headed back up to the party where a handful of their closest friends were loosening up in preparation for this couples unification.  Katie and Mario pledged their devotion to each other in an ultra-sweet and short ceremony and out came the grub that Get off the Couch Catering deliciously provided (Mario’s grandad also supplied some excellent baklava!).  Right after dinner, a man with an ice cream cart appeared and everybody sugared up for what was to become a hot ‘n sweaty summer rager.   This party was a blast!

KATE AND DAVID’S WEDDING

Posted on September 26, 2013    Tags: , , ,

Kate and David were married on a warm and sunny Saturday evening in the hidden gardens of Honky Tonk BBQ. The ladies popped some champagne and prettied up while the dudes kozzied some cold beers and suited up. It was now that time! Guests and family mopped up the joyful tears that streamed from their eyes as Kate elegantly walked down the aisle. Vows and looks of love were exchanged under the ceremonial Chuppah and it was time to break the glass. There was no glass within reach so David bolted past the congregation and vanished for a few suspenseful seconds. He quickly emerged with a plastic tumbler and shouted “Plastic’s okay, right?” Nobody seemed to mind so under the foot of David went the plastic cup. Mazel Tov indeed! After the ceremony,  a few signature  cocktails were served and on came  an incredible spread of Honky Tonk’s finest meats and sides.  After dinner the couple was welcomed and toasted into their new marriage.  Then they sauntered and swayed their way around the lawn as they danced for the first time as a married couple.  Rebecca, from Toast and Jam,  laid out the hits and got everyone on the dance floor…I mean lawn.   The drinks flowed and out came the sparklers.  Guests danced, laughed, played with fire and wrestled furniture.  I dragged Kate and David out in front for a few more quick photos before the party ended.  This was such a fun party at a really unique spot with some awesome folks.  Thanks for asking me to shoot!

MORE HALLOWEINERS

A few of my homies stopped by on Halloween.  They all had pretty damn good costumes so I rolled down the seamless backdrop, turned on a couple lights and stuck those costumed people in front of the immortalization machine.

 

 





HEY BOO, IT’S HALLOWEEN!

Way back in the primordial dawn of my photography school education,  I was seriously hell-bent on making every one of my photos look like it was a still from some sort of campy horror flick.  My good buddy and roommate, Darrell, lived through this nightmare and was a helluva trooper!  He’d wake up at ungodly hours of the morning and bend over backwards in a diaper for the sake of my school art projects.   Like most shoddy movies, I’m not really sure what it was all about but I sure am glad that it’s over.

 

 

 

PALE HANDS I LOVED

Pale Hands I Loved is Meredith Miller’s cabaret revue that was recently featured at Links Hall. The 10 acts were packed with gloom, hilarity, grotesquery, beauty, nostalgia, entertainment and some downright catchy tunes. Be on the lookout for Meredith’s starring role in the upcoming film, The Poisoner.
