I had a record ten assignments for the Star this past month. Some of those assignments have already been posted, but here are a few that happened after the Tegan & Sara concert. They include a preview party for the Broad Ripple Art Fair, The Wanted concert (and all the fans!) at the Egyptian Room, the Sectional 13 softball championship game, and maybe the most surreal photo assignment I've ever had, a very intense Rock Paper Scissors tournament at White Rabbit Cabaret. Enjoy the photos!

Tomorrow starts the first weekend of wedding photos this season, as I will be covering the marriage rites of a good high school friend in West Lafayette. If my past wedding work is any indication, it should be a lot of fun.
