JeffJack Apartments West Loop Grand Opening

You might just recognize interiors of JeffJack Apartments from my earlier tour in March for Curbed Chicago. CS Magazine was covering their Grand Opening party, which gave me a little bit of time to get back in to photograph the modern spaces in the building, and of course the great food and revelry.

A night like this is one of the main reasons I love event photography. Staying on my toes and being prepared for anything from architecture and interior photography to portraiture is so exciting and rewarding. Though, with food from Formento's & Salero and music from Style Matters, you really can't do too much wrong.

Virgin Hotel Chicago: The Rooftop Bar

Hot on the heels of Virgin Hotel's Chicago opening, the rooftop has been revealed to the public adding to the list of great cocktails to enjoy whilst sitting amongst the Chicago skyline. We were very excited to work with Virgin Hotels again on this big project that has elevated their popularity even more!

The Virgin Hotel Chicago: British Hotel Style Comes To The New World

From cell phones to airlines, Virgin has taken the market by storm. Sir Richard Branson's next move starts right here in Chicago with the opening of the first Virgin Hotel. In the heart of The Loop, Virgin has transformed the ornate Dearborn Bank building into a mecca for today's business travelers. With lots of amenities, including a rooftop bar and a full restaurant, they promise a truly customizable experience for their guests. With Virgin Hotel Nashville and Virgin Hotel New York in the works, it will be really exciting to see how Chicago grows as the basis for this new brand.
