here we go magic. doug fir. oct. 31, 2010.

we spent our halloween night at the doug fir. i was excited to have won free tickets for here we go magic, as i'd wanted to see them for awhile. in honor of the occassion, they were babies, wearing adult diapers with wide eyes and rosie cheeks painted on their faces. here are a few shots, followed by a video for my favorite song of theirs. more can be seen in this album.

matthew dear, small black, class actress, young prisms. holocene. nov. 8, 2010.

a friend of mine asked me to take a few photos at a recent show for these shots can also be seen here with an accompanying review. the lighting at holocene is typically super dim, so i was lucky that matthew dear actually had his own little white spotlight. the others are grainier, but still colorful.

joy and caitlin get married.

my friends joy and caitlin got married a little while ago in the peninsula park rose garden. the weather was perfectly sunny, the couple was so, so, so happy and it was one of the most moving ceremonies and celebrations i'd ever been to. here are a few of my favorite shots from the rose garden (more to come from the reception).

(This one was taken by Ryan - I was in the wedding.)


my other half recently graduated emporia state with a masters in library science. i'm incredibly proud of him and all of the work he did over the last two years, so i thought i'd share some portraits i took from the day he walked.

Hold Steady/Jaill - Crystal Ballroom - Aug. 20, 2010

recently took some shots of hold steady and jaill for a review site called melophobe as a favor for a fellow photo geek/friend. i was lucky enough to camp out up front the whole time, so the only lens i have (18-105mm) seemed to work out fine. still playing around with shutter speeds in dark settings so i can leave the flash down - the lighting here was perfect for it.
