Backstage with One Direction


Event Photography at Chicago's Soldier Field

Elizabeth Arden and One Direction collaborated on a fragrance called “Our Moment.” To celebrate the launch of the fragrance, Elizabeth Arden threw them a party backstage before their performance at Soldier Field.

 I was hired to photograph the backstage party.  I had never been in the greenroom at Soldier Field and it was pretty cool. I felt very important as the security guards ushered me backstage! 

It was fun to see some of the teenage guests squirm with excitement as One Direction entered the backstage party. Naturally everyone wanted their picture taken with the band and I had a great time capturing those photos. The band members were very kind and gracious. They couldn’t stay long, as they had to get ready for the performance that would happen in about 2 hours. 

One of the attendees snapped this cell phone pic of me photographing the band. Don’t tell anyone that I didn’t know who One Direction was until I was hired for this gig!
