City Councilman Kwanza Hall, AFWF founders Elizabeth Feichter & Dominique LoveMark Castriota and Kevin Green (President & CEO of Midtown Alliance) raised their glass to a weekend of great food, wine bourbon and craft beer.  It’s funny because I JUST provided services for the Midtown Alliance team the week before and was delighted to see them again.

Anyone who knows me know that I LOVE to eat and photographing food is my favorite subject.  Being able to cover the event for the second year was one of my biggest highlights!  I made my way downtown and arrived JUST in time for the group photo with all the chefs.  I wanted to get a shot but knew it wasn’t my place to get in the way so I kindly asked the house photog if I could snap a few pics “quietly” behind him 🙂

Life of a photographer…  I had to make a quick trip over to Sandy Springs GA (about 20 minutes away) for a photo shoot and to my surprise… the session was quick & easy!  Love love love those rare momnets when the client is camera friendly and the lighting is PERFECT.   All I could think about was getting back to Midtown to indulge in the tasting tents.

Stay tuned for MORE #AFWF2015 highlights! Enjoy the pics 🙂
