With summer well and truly done and Autumn in full swing I thought it would be fun to have a look back to some of the events I covered whilst the sun was still shining post 6pm. Photographing events are some of my favourite jobs and the O&G Summer Ball was probably my favourite this summer. We all know the stereotype of doctors and nurses knowing how to party, and I can confirm that they definitely do!
The ball was held for all of the Obstetrics and Gynaecology departments from NHS hospitals across the South West at Kings Western House which is a beautiful venue. The sun held out all evening and there was a stunning golden hour which only made it even more fun to work. Everyone was dressed to impress, there to let their hair down and super friendly which obviously helped with getting some great natural shots. I’m sure the alcohol probably helped that a little as well.
The organiser, Sarah, had made sure to carve out a time and place for everyone to gather and have a group photo before heading into dinner. She’d made sure this was in the invitations so all the guests were aware ahead of time. I cannot emphasise how helpful this was. Getting a big group shot is a staple for this kind of event and letting people know a fixed time and defined location before hand means it is easier to gather everyone together. This is something I always advise to do. No matter how big your group is if you’re missing a person or two its just not the same and getting that big group shot is such a great memory.
