AXiD 50th Anniversary Weekend
This weekend I had the pleasure of photographing the sisters of IUP's Alpha Xi Delta chapter, Delta Nu.
It all started with a phone call Thursday from their sweetheart and my brother in Phi Delta Theta, Zach.
The previous photographer dropped because of a family emergency, and they needed someone to fill in. I agreed, and after speaking with the chapter's adviser, got the timeline of events.
Between Friday and Saturday, I shot a alumni reception, brunch, fashion show featuring each decade of sisters, and then a cocktail hour and dinner party, with presentations from notable alumni and IUP's Greek Office.
There was a positive energy the entire weekend; everyone was excited to see sisters that they hadn't been able to see in years.
From an outside perspective, it was really interesting to see the bonds formed between those in a Greek organization, and how they last far longer than the four years we stay at college. Seeing sparks fly between those sisters who hadn't spoken in 25 years was an inspiring sight, and I hope to have that same kinship with the men I'm choosing to make that bond with now in Phi Delta Theta.
Overall, it was a great experience, and I thank the sisters of AXiD for having me document their weekend.
