Hamptons Event Photography – Party and Gala Photographer

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!!

Photo Restoration Services: Archiving Your Family History

With the advent of multiple websites helping trace your family history (and the movie Coco,), genealogy as a hobby has made a comeback!! Visiting the family plot has new meaning as you look down and can better understand how the heck you got here. In the old-timey days, photographs were a luxury and often one of a kind. Unfortunately, if not properly cared for, many of those photos may be deteriorating leaving your family tree with missing branches. Digitizing (scanning,) restoring (Photoshop,) and even printing them is worthwhile and a proactive way of archiving the family legacy for future generations. If not for your great grandchildren, do it for your great uncle Lyle.
