Formal event photography

The US Marine Corp Anniversary Ball is a treat for any event photographer. As a professional photographer, the only criticism that is worth much is whether the client decides to invite you back! This ball is held annually in all the locations where US Marines are deployed. Things usually start off formally with senior Diplomatic handshakes and then as the evening progresses you can expect to see senior Diplomatic moonwalking.  Definitely one to get an invitation for!

The essence of formal event photography

We like to make sure we capture ceremonial aspects of an event, as well as the spirit and the special details. ¬†You’ll notice below, the traditional table setting for ‘Missing Marines’; it’s a tribute to the fallen and is laid out identically for each and every ball.
