After the Party is Over

After the party is over what to do have?  Lots of images, I hope!

I covered a great birthday celebration a couple of weekends ago that was held at the East Pier Hotel in Ahuriri.  I’m sure it took months of planning to coordinate all the event details.  Many of the guests flew in special for the event, from all around New Zealand and from overseas.

Since I was there with my camera, they could relax & enjoy the party.  Now that the party is over, they now have the images to enjoy for years to come.

Birthday party guests enjoy the event.

The party is over so fast! But images of it are there for you to enjoy for years to come!

Sparkle 2015 Pre-Event Coverage

I had the opportunity to cover the pre-event preparations for the inaugural Sparkle black tie charity event held at Mana Lodge for the benefit of Cranford Hospice.  The decorations inside the marquees were beautifully done & really set the stage for an elegant evening out.

Here are some highlights of the shoot.  To view all the images please go to my Sparkle 2015 Pre-Event gallery.  For more information about Sparkle.

Am I a guest or a photographer?

The ceremony.  It was a perfect Spring day.

The ceremony. It was a perfect Spring day.

I just got back from a visit to my old home town of San Diego, California.  I was lucky enough to be there to attend my nephew’s wedding.  It has been over a decade since our family’s last wedding.

I didn’t have any of the responsibilities of being the official photographer, so I was free to shoot whatever I liked.  But I found out pretty quick, it is quite difficult being both a guest & a photographer. 

When I was socializing, I felt the pull of the prime photo opportunities happening around me.  When I was out with my camera I knew I was missing the chance to interact with all those important people I rarely get to see & talk to.  In the end, being a guest won out.  I did come back with several images to remember the day by, even though some great ones probably slipped by me.

This is one of the main reasons I believe it is so important to hire a photographer to document your event for you.  By hiring a photographer, who’s sole purpose is to capture all the details,  you can enjoy every minute of the party & still have all the images that will bring back all the memories!
