I was dressed up and arrived early to photograph the many decorations and beautiful cakes before people arrived for the event.
Once I photographed the 12 cakes and some of the details, I took some guest arrival and table check-in shots. Once guests checked in, they began tasting cakes and had some other early food and drink.
After an hour or so the people moved to their dinner table where there were a couple speeches and then dinner. After dinner the cakes were auctioned off to the guests. That was followed by the band Prime Time Funk and some dancing ensued. The formalities finished at about 11 PM with the raffle drawing of some jewelry and a trip to Miami. I shot some more dancing until midnight and decided the day had been long enough and packed it in. It was a type of event I had not shot before so the experience I received from this volunteer work was great.
All shots I used flash from my Canon 580EX II and all but a few were bounced off the ceiling.
