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.

I had the pleasure of meeting Joan Heffler for an event where I was volunteering. First thing is first- her pictures and variety she shared was unbelievable! Part of what makes Joan unique is her ability to capture that special moment and with her creativity, makes all of those pictures come to life. Not only that, but she has a wonderful personality and talking with her was an absolute pleasure. It is nice to know that behind the lens, is a real person looking to make your day special. She was professional, friendly and courteous throughout and I will reccommend her to everyone I know looking for photography services 🙂
