In addition to weddings, family shoots and event photography I have also been asked to photograph Birthday parties.
These are great fun for everyone, including me as the photographer. They’re similar to evening receptions at weddings, in that everyone attending is there to enjoy the occasion.
Sally was throwing a surprise 30th Birthday party for her fiancé Luke, and I was honoured when she asked me to photograph the occasion. The event took place at Goals Soccer Centre, Black Country in Willenhall, West Midlands, on the 31st January.
Having arrived ahead odd time and having the luxury of time, I photographed the detail that goes into making these evenings a success, including the homemade and hand decorated birthday cake.
As the guests gathered for Luke’s arrival I was able to get a few shots of them as they milled and mingled.
It’s always an exciting time waiting for the unsuspecting person at these occasions, and this one was no different. Luke turned up with his mates and the surprise turned out successfully for Sally.
Overall at great night was enjoyed by everyone and you can see these in the photos http://www.thjphotography.jamesfarley.co.uk/portfolio/lukes-surprise-30th-party-january-2015/
