Wow, wow, and more WOW!!

By | Corporate Events, Personal Favorites | No Comments

Ok, so you are about to see the kind of event you will be treated to when you are incredibly generous to children. When I say generous, I mean ridiculously generous… Now I can’t even joke about being able to support a donation as generous as these guests do year after year…luckily, I work here ๐Ÿ˜‰

Seriously though, the Children’s Circle ofย  Care has a yearly event for generous supporters hosted in a different city every year, and this year’s event was hosted by Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. I was invited to shoot the decor and details of the final day by my good friends at PRA Destination Management – and what a day!! This event featured a full day schedule: performances by the Southwest Dekalb Marching Band, the Falcons Cheerleaders, Falcons players, and Jeff Foxworthy at the Georgia Dome, followed by a beautiful reception and dinner at the Georgia Aquarium, and it all ended in a big tent at Pemberton Place with a fantastic performance by Lionel Ritchie! WOW!!!

Finally, it makes my heart sad to say I could not (by contract) take any photos of the Lionel’s performance. I was able to shoot the tent – which should give you some indication of how incredible the experience actually was. On the other hand, it made my heart pretty happy to put down my camera and dance a jig to “Dancin’ on the Ceiling”!

Thanks again to the wonderful team at PRA, to my studio manager Peter for making himself available at the last minute to help out with the shoot, and to my wife, Angel, for making it just in time to cut a Lionel Ritchie rug with her old man!!! Hellooo, is it meee your looking forrrr…..

Edible Canopy Adventures: The NEW Atlanta Botanical Gardens Exhibits…and a little Murph.

By | Corporate Events, Green Things, Murphy | One Comment

Our good friends at Affairs to Remember Catering invited us to capture the very first event at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens’ new Canopy Walk and Edible Gardens exhibits . The event was the VIP Grand Opening reception and tour for the committees and companies that participated in bringing the new exhibits to life.

I could go on and on and on about the new exhibits, but what I really need to say is this: you need to go check out the Atlanta Botanical Gardens! The design of the new exhibits is simply fantastic – there are some key elements of the exhibits that will bring the experience a ‘little closer to home’ for most people.

We will start with the Canopy Walk. Although I was there to photograph the decor and food presented by ATR, I couldn’t help but catch the ribbon cutting ceremony.

After guests experienced the new canopy walk, we then ventured out to the other side of the gardens where the new Edible Gardens are on display. There is even a fantastic cooking kitchen (permanent installation) or you can learn how to incorporate fresh foods from your garden into amazing recipes!

Thanks so much to Dana and Rich at Affairs to Remember for inviting PWP Studio to capture their amazing adventure as the first caterers to explore the new exhibits at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens!!

The following day, we found ourselves on a BIG adventure. Sir Topham Hatt called to let Angel and me know the “real” Thomas the Tank Engine would be stopping by the Tennessee Railroad – just up the road in Chattanooga (which we taught Murphy to refer to as “Chatta-boogie”). Mr. Hatt asked us if we might like to take a ride…ummm, YES!!! WELL, Murphy and fam had a ball!!

Surprisingly, Murph was a little scared of Sir Topham Hatt!?

Still, we thanked Mr. Hatt for the invite and left Chattaboogie – with smiles and fond memories of a grand day out with Thomas!!

Last week the Southeastern USA chapter of the Society of Incentive & Travel Executives (SITE) got together for a fantastic networking event at Chateau Elan. Our good friends over at Your Event Solution provided decor for the event, and PWP Studio was invited to capture the event. Two rooms- one the cask room and one the vat room – each with a COMPLETELY different theme and scheme. It was visually STUNNING!
