Chicago Event Photography

Minds Matter: Hilton Downtown Chicago Event Photography

I recently shot the sixth annual Minds Matter Benefit Gala for CS Magazine at the beautiful Grand Ballroom of the Hilton Downtown Chicago Hotel. Just across the street from 2015 NFL Draft's 'Draft Town', the energy was high that night. The Minds Matter Gala is hosted by The Northwestern Brain Tumor Institute to raise awareness and funding towards the fight against brain and spinal tumors. Take a look at some decor shots from the night below. 

Refugee One Gala: VenueOne Chicago Event Photography

The vibrant and energy-filled RefugeeOne Gala held at VenuOne meeting and event center in the West Loop was wonderful to photograph. The space was filled with bright light, fresh white walls (a photographers' dream) and lots of small details that added to the atmosphere all night long. "RefugeeOne is a refugee resettlement agency that provides a full range of services to refugees resettled in the Chicago area." The evening was charged with a positive energy fueled by the guests of honor and amazing entertainment. The dance floor was filled up until the last moments - such a great event for an amazing cause!
