I was contacted by Annabel as she was in search of an event photographer to document her 40th birthday party which was held at the Shell Bay restaurant in Poole, Dorset. This idyllic location overlooks Poole Harbour with spectacular views of Brownsea Island and Sandbanks.
Annabel’s birthday party was stylish and chic, the ladies elegant and the gentleman dapper. The atmosphere was complimented with a live jazz band and the sunset was epic, perfectly timed for this special event. A champagne reception, canapés and some delicious desserts were served.
A photojournalistic style and approach was used to document the true essence of the event. It was a fun evening, fantastic atmosphere and I very much enjoyed photographing the party.
