The Hamptons Event Photographer – Party and Gala Photography

Social events go by many names. Whether it’s a party, gala, event, clam bake, birthday, bar mitzvah, bat mitzvah, anniversary, reunion, fundraiser, wedding, shower, fiesta or just-because celebration, the common goal is often to have the event captured (photographed) by a photographer (me) who can document all the various, important moving (and not moving) parts. Events such as these (especially in the Hamptons,) are a sensory overload of the guests, the food, the atmosphere, the vibe, the environment, the table settings, the fun… there’s a lot to cover and it can be a whirlwind!!
