Mandana's 30th Birthday Extravaganza!

Chicago Party Photography!

One thing you can’t say about Chicago is that there’s a shortage of parties!

Whether it’s at one of the city’s hottest clubs, which I won’t name because I definitely know what they’re called and where they are and how to get in.

Or A raging birthday party at someone’s apartment that is way too small for such a raging birthday party.

OR one of those party trolley ordeals where a group of 30 stranger who’ve been randomly grouped together are driven around the city and have 2.5 hours to figure out who among them is a mole that works for the trolley company and is trying to sabotage the evening from inside.

That last one might have been a dream I had about a small business venture…

Regardless of which style of Chicago party you identify with most, they all have one thing in common: they’re all pretty fun to photograph!

“Mandana’s 30th Birthday Extravaganza” was no exception!

At a beautiful reserved party space in a condo building in Streeterville, Mandana & friends enjoyed a celebratory evening of food, drinks, novelty balloons, dancing and cardboard signs that wink at the passage of time, and I was honored to be a part of it!

Here are some of my favorite photos from the evening. Party responsibly!
