The shoot was on location at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Orlando, Florida.


In collaboration with Association of Fundraising Professionals Central Florida organizers, our team photographed each honoree immediately after they accepted their awards before exiting the stage. By erecting a temporary photo studio next to the stage we were able to capture the spirit of spontaneity and the genuine feeling of joy and excitement.

The small on-site location and the animated crowd challenged our ability to maintain the quality standards of a professional studio photo shoot. Large groups and logistical challenges not withstanding, we were able to uphold our quality standards – much to our client’s relief and delight!
