Cupid's Undie Run- Chicago Event Photographer

One of my favorite events I’ve ever shot was Cupid’s Undie Run. It was a run in the middle of a GIANT party. A fellow murderino (of course) reached out looking for volunteer photographers and I jumped at the chance. If you know me, you know two of my favorite things to photograph are events and undies (boudoir).

Cupid’s Undie Run was started in 2010 to raise awareness and money in an effort to end neurofibromatosis (NF), a genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body.

I didn’t know anyone at this event and I was feeling a little nervous at first, but all the volunteers and staff were so welcoming and accommodating. I loved wandering around, making new friends, and photographing people in their undies in the name of Charity.

I was super lucky that I got to wear my coat outside for the run, and I’m in awe of all the brave souls who ran because it was freezing in Chicago that day. I’m still riding on the high from that day, a whole month later, and I can’t wait to photograph it again next year.
