Last night I saw and photographed In This Moment again at Limelight Eventplex. I cannot wait to edit the photos, they’re like a concert photographer’s wet dream. I’m a big fan, too, so I HAD to “become the show” again. I actually had all of this prior to the show haha. I probably wouldn’t normally wear it all together, but it sure worked for my dark Big Bad Wolf inspiration. I tried to duplicate her awesome make up look and everything.

The show itself was amazing. They changed it up and added some new choreography and costumes since last time they came through in the fall. I’m a little bummed that I didn’t get to say hi to Maria this time, but it was getting late on a Sunday and I had work at 8am the next day, so I had to get home to my bed. :P

Black Widow Tour

This past Saturday I photographed In This Moment’s Black Widow Tour at Limelight Eventplex in Peoria, IL. I was so excited to shoot this show (yes, it’s my 3rd time shooting ITM, but not in this size of a venue). Maria is so theatrical, it’s a photographers dream. I went through the meet and greet with my Maria-inspired outfit that was still work appropriate and she recognized my hat from my Halloween costume! I got a photo with all of them and had Maria sign my hat, then she got a photo of just us two on her phone. Then she made me even more happy by saying they don’t limit photographers to the first 3 songs. The more photos, the better! I about died.

I got some amazing shots. I was actually a little shot happy and took way too many, but I don’t even care. There were just too many amazing moments to capture. Check out some of my favorites below and find more on Facebook or on my website.

#ThrowbackThursday : Halloween 2013

Last Halloween I was Maria Brink from In This Moment! I had such a fun time putting all this together, and yes, I made the hat! I got everything from various stores, mostly online. I got lots of compliments and Maria Brink actually posted my photo March of this year and said “One of the best Me costumes I’ve seen!!!! I love xoxoxo.” This will be a tough one to top!
