One of the great things about being in the events industry are the great vendors we have gotten to know and get to work with on a regular basis.  Many of these folks we have met through our local chapter of NACE (National Association for Catering and Events).  This awesome organization is all about connecting and educating vendors from across the different disciplines in our field.

The Greater Richmond Chapter recently held a “Photography for Event Professionals” workshop at Maymont, where they had photographers and other professionals speak on how we can better capture our work.  In between the presentations, they had hands-on shooting, where the attendees could shoot mini set-ups of things they would often find at an event.  We were so excited to not only attend the workshop, but also be a sponsor for a few of the vignettes that were set up.

In addition to the photos we took, J&D Photography was on hand to capture the work put in by all the NACE member professionals to make this happen.  (We opted to show you their photos rather than our own – always trust a professional!!)
