Last weekend I got the chance to do something a little out of my norm. I was hired by Lancer Catering to photograph the Beastly Ball, a fundraiser for the MN Zoo in Apple Valley. As a wedding & event photographer I’m used to events like this, however, I have never photographed one where my intent was to focus on the food and not the people. It was a fun change of pace for me and I was completely fascinated to see the behind the scenes of what it takes to pull off an event as large as this! The Lancer team was fabulous to work with and I enjoyed the opportunity to photograph a gala from a different perspective very much. Also had a little fan girl moment when I saw Sven Sundgaard, Alicia Lewis, and Melissa Colorado from the Kare 11 Sunrise show — but don’t worry, I didn’t approach them or act awkward! Enjoy some of the photos!
