I've recently been blessed to have received many wonderful opportunities to document some very special occasions. I had the privilege of accompanying Karen Ard of Karen Ard Photography to photograph the reception of Jake's Bar Mitzvah. The venue is one in which I was familiar. Back when my wife worked at an elementary school, Braemar Country club hosted their annual fund raiser. I was thrilled to return in the role of an event vendor. We arrived early to set up and begin shooting the details of the event. As I began setting up my gear, the MC and his associates were busy setting up the dance floor and some pretty incredible lighting. As I watched them set up I took a second glance and realized I knew him. I immediately flashed back some 13 years to my wedding. The evening's MC was in fact the DJ at our wedding 13 years prior. It was wonderful to reconnect with Gil Zuniga of Zuniga Entertainment after so many years. He and his team put on a wonderful event and kept everyone entertained throughout. I'm sure Jake had the time of his life...an event he will cherish for a lifetime.
