Why I Took This Photo

Buffet Table at Vanderheyden Hall 185th Anniversary Gala at 90 State St. Albany, NYI have been the photographer of choice for more than 7 years at Vanderheyden Hall in Wynantskill, NY since Karen Carpenter Palumbo became Executive Director. The experience has been incredibly meaningful to me since Vanderheyden serves a very special population of almost 500.

Vanderheyden’s 185th Anniversary Gala was at 60 State Place, Albany, NY. It was an elegant affair and I wanted to focus on that theme. This photo elegantly depicts their theme color blue amid the stature and excellence of their work and legacy. The food display was beautifully arranged by 2 Shea Catering befitting such a regal and high class institution. This table with its beautiful ice sculpture was at the forefront of the event the entire evening and I wanted to make sure to capture that.

Joan made the photo shoot both comfortable and enjoyable. She gave clear directions about how to be prepared for it. During the shoot, which included many photos of many types, her suggestions for how to pose comfortably made the photos so much more effective. Our son gave us this photo shoot as a gift for helping he and his prepare for their wedding. We were delighted but inexperienced with posing for photos. Joan made this a pleasure and so easy to do. We will enjoy these photos so much.
