A few months ago the wealth management firm True North Advisors hired me to shoot some pictures of their company end-of-the-year party. It was a total blast and I blogged about it here. I was surprised and honored when they contacted me again about photographing their yearly client party.
The event was held at The Dallas Arboretum with food provided by Two Sisters Catering. The food looked and smelled amazing as it was served from installations that were themselves, works of art.
The Camp House was brimming with lively conversation and relaxed exuberance as the firm’s invitees soaked up the natural beauty of a perfect Spring day.
I enjoyed incorporating all of the details into the pictures taken during the evening.
As a photographer, I was enthralled with the authenticity and interest that was all around me. The setting couldn’t have been more lovely.
The challenge, however, was to mentally stay a step ahead of the waning natural light in order to ensure that the last pictures I shot would be just as crisp and informative as the images I had taken hours before.
I love the colors that appeared in the lights once the sun went down.
The tents and tables and trees seemed to come alive with the ambient glow of colored light. All the while, the Emerald City Band kept playing and playing.
It truly was an amazing evening and I am thankful for having been invited . . . again.
One of the aspects of my job that I love the most is all the amazing people I get to meet. At the start of the new year, the wealth management firm True North Advisors hired me to photograph their corporate party. It was so much fun.
The venue they chose was this really cool place over in the Park Lane Shops called Bowl and Barrel. Relatively new, Bowl and Barrel has done a fantastic job of combining great music and elegant food with a fun-filled evening of what they call “Boutique Bowling”.
As you can tell by the pictures, everyone really enjoyed themselves. I was having fun taking pictures, but I also found myself really liking these people. They just seemed like a bunch of totally cool people relaxing a bit after a hard season of work.
They had special bowling shirts made up and were pretty competitive, although I’m not really sure who, if anyone, actually won.
The food looked and smelled amazing and it was a real treat to photograph everyone having fun in such a unique location.
When True North first contacted me about the session, I was told that the goal was to hopefully get everyone out of their comfort zone so that they could really bond and enjoy a fun-filled evening together.
I’m pretty sure that’s exactly what happened. Thanks for letting me mix and mingle with you guys.
It was an honor to be invited to the party . . . even if it was just to shoot a few pictures.
