It was a great evening for St. Anthony Hospital at the The Vinoy St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club, now part of the Marriott Autograph Collection Hotel family. This was the first gig I photographed at the newly remodeled hotel and Grand Ballroom, and it did not disappoint.
For this event, the hospital hired me to do roaming event photography and a photobooth with on-site printing for their annual employee recognition award banquet. This was the 3rd time I photographed this event and every year it keeps getting better. For the photo booth printing, we provided photo strips and had all the traditional photo booth props with us. It was a lot of fun and the employees loved it and got to take home a keepsake strip print.
The event for St. Anthony Hospital was an employee recognition award baquent for those who have reached milestone anniversary years, 5 years – 40 years of dedicated employment with the hospital. The event gave two awards of excellence out and the recipients had no idea that they were the honoree.
The above photos are a powerful depiction of raw emotion captured in a single frame. Event photography allows us to freeze time and preserve memories.
It was an honor to be part of St. Anthony Hospital Night of Stars, and I hope this photo blog offered you a glimpse into the energy, emotions, and unforgettable moments that unfolded throughout the evening. Thank you for joining me on this visual journey, and I look forward to sharing more of my photography adventures with you in the future.
