When I first began taking photos, I had a completely different muse. I suppose it’s all the same impulse: to tell a story. But those first stories I was dying to tell were ones of youthful celebrations, beauty, late nights, loud shows, and dancing. My first images were almost exclusively… party photos.

I’m not the same person now, nor the same photographer. My photos do still reflect that love of fun + laughter, and they highlight the over-the-top moments just as much as the quiet ones. But they’ve changed + evolved as well. A few weeks ago I did sneak out to Moe Bar + Havana for a best-friend-late-night-rendezvous, and the photos we took inspired me. With those photos [and moments] in mind, may I present a few favorite moments of joyous party time.

Happy Friday party time weekend everyone.
