Spring Family Portraits - April 26, 2014

Yesterday afternoon I got to take some family portraits at my go to location, McCrillis Gardens.  This lovely family and I have been trying to schedule a shoot for awhile now.   Between bad weather and vacation schedules it took us a couple of tries before we were able to finally meet yesterday.  Well worth the wait.   The weather was perfect and they were lovely folks.

Mandarin Oriental Hotel - 10th Anniversary Party

This past weekend I photographed the Mandarin Oriental's 10th Anniversary party for their D.C. property.   The event was held for the staff of the hotel, many of whom had been there since the site opened.  Bret Freedman did an incredible job transforming the ballrooms for this event.   She had also arranged for guests to be entertained by a tea leaf reader, a calligrapher, fan dancers and an aerialist.  After dinner in the main ballroom everyone moved to the after party for dancing and dessert in another room where DJ Jaime Mizel spun the tunes.  So nice to see an organization show such thanks to the employees who make the Mandarin such an amazing property.

Vendors for the event:

Design - Syzygy
Flowers - Edge Floral
Lighting - PSAV
DJ - Jaime Mizell E2 Events
Entertainment - Cast of Thousands
