Her influences include the work of Terry Richardson, Helmunt Newton, and David LaChappelle.

Photographer: Stephanie Surface
We actually have a saying that everything looks better in Steff's photos than it does in real life, and its true! Stephanie has what so many photographers lack -- an undeniable sense of timing, preserving what most of us take for granted.
While a lot of her work is done for local bands/DJs in the northern VA area, she rates high in children's photography. Piece of cake for a mother of three! No cheesy smiles here, Stephanie always stays unique and genuine. She's a professional, who's fun to work with, and captures life on film in ways we would not have imagined.

Performance By: I:scintilla

Chicago's I:Scintilla (pronounced eye-sin-til-uh) have jumped from recording demo songs in a bedroom to collaborating with some of modern music's best artists and releasing music on an international level. Fronted by Brittany Bindrim (vocals/words) and backed by Jim Cookas (guitar/programming), Vincent Grech (drums), and Chad Mines (bass), the group seamlessly fuses electronic and rock elements while pushing the boundaries of pop music. Bindrim's intensely seductive voice and insightful words paint a dark picture of loss, redemption, and introspection and are delivered via insatiably catchy hooks. The music drapes the mood with intricately layered synthesizers, grinding guitar riffs, and a mix of live and programmed drums. The quartet's unique sound has drawn comparisons toGarbageTheatre of Tragedy, and The Birthday Massacre.
