2011 was a year of exciting growth and event opportunities for us, we photographed a good number of interesting and innovative happenings.

Take, for example, this charity military-wedding event we photographed that featured 21 couples marrying all in the same ceremony!

In the spring we headed down to Palm Desert to photograph a destination corporate event, starring none other than Clyde the painting camel at the Living Desert Zoo & Botanical Gardens.

ISES Los Angeles invited us to photograph their Awards Banquet in July, which was fun!

Matt and I photographed a number of events produced by Simply Mumtaz this year, however I think the this event at the Biltmore was my favorite. So much golden deliciousness.

Matt and I love Cirque du Soleil, so I was terribly excited that Site SoCal asked us to photograph their VIP Appreciation Event, which included tickets to a preview of Cirque’s new show in Los Angeles.

Of course, who could forget Natalie’s big 30th birthday party….in pink! I didn’t blog the photos due to potential publication usage, however you can view them at our Facebook page.

Not to mention, the Living Desert’s “Howl-O-Ween” event. Now THAT was fun!

Last, but certainly not least, is the famed Harry Potter holiday party. Who wouldn’t like to throw a bash this amazing?! You’d have to talk to My Flower Guy, who pulled it all together!

We loved doing all these events, they keep us fresh. It’s also so cool to see what our peers in this industry can dream up….here’s to more awesome events coming up in 2012, can’t wait to photograph ’em!
