I’ve photographed some spectacular events in my time, but Tommy’s 18th birthday party video was unforgettable!
Tommy’s parents threw a Great Gatsby-themed birthday bash for him in a marquee outside their home. I was booked from 8pm to 1am.
My goal was to create beautiful memories by having every guest record a commemorative message for Tommy. I shot these in between various highlights, including can-can girls, a lavish cake-cutting and floor-filling DJ sets. I got some great snippets, from funny to emotional messages.
My camera is very advanced – no bigger than a DSLR photo camera – making it very easy to shoot in “stealth mode”, which is crucial for events.
I had a great time editing the birthday party video with contemporary music. Tommy’s family loved it – they shared it on Facebook and it got 3,000 views and comments! They also left me a five-star review. Happy Birthday Tommy!
