Event Photography – Annual Conference
Event Photography Case Study
Client: The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle
Location: The Westin Hotel, Downtown Seattle WA
Event Overview: Connections is an annual fundraising event for Jewish women of greater Seattle and the pacific northwest. The vision of the Jewish Federation is “a vibrant, thriving Jewish community today and tomorrow.” This years event was particularly poignant because it was the first time this event has been held in person since 2019. As friends gathered, there were loads of heartfelt hugs, warmth of commraderie, and gratefulness to be together in person.
Capturing the energy and connection of participants is important for event photography
Connections began the day with a VIP mingling room where guests could chat with the featured speaker and sip mimosa’s while catching up with old friends. Once eveyone moved into the dining area, a program of events followed.
The Annual Connections event always hosts a featured speaker. This year the co-chairs chose Tara Schuster to share a powerful message on why self-care and showing up for yourself enables everyone to better show up for community. Tara Schuster is the former VP of Development at Comedy Central, best-selling author and accomplished entertainment executive.
My goal was to capture the love, friendship, and connection of the women gathered for this event. I did this with lots of candids and small groupings. These photographs will be used by the Jewish Federation for future marketing and social events.
