Discount Tire San Diego region recently held their annual awards celebration at the Hyatt La Jolla Regency at Aventine and together with several of my assistants we provided posed portrait photography, event photography and photo booth for the evening. With about 500 attendees present for the awards presentations and employee recognition, it was a fun and fast-paced event that included complete event photography with two posed photos stations, and a photo booth to capture poses of couples and groups.
As with the previous years shooting for Discount Tire’s annual awards celebrations, we created two posed photography backdrop stations complete with studio lighting and props. One station had a formal photography background of white pleats, white floor, and flower bouquets. The second photography themed backdrop had a paparazzi, Hollywood background. There was also a third backdrop which was a step and repeat that was used for the event photography and photo booth.
In this event photography and photo booth article you can see several samples of the posed photos from each of the two backdrop stations. To complete this part of the special package for the Discount Tire 2017 Awards Celebration Photography, we prepared products that included professional her 250 5×7″ prints of each posed photos in a nice display folder.
Another important component in the evening of event photography was to capture a posed group photo of the store mangers and executive team. This photo was created at the stage area in the Aventine Ballroom at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine, which is where the awards ceremony and dinner was also held. As with previous years for providing event photography for San Diego’s Discount Tire, the posed managers’ photo will be printed in 16×24″ size and framed with a double matte and provided to Discount Tire to display in the company’s boardroom at their corporate office in Poway, California.
Discount Tire will also receive a disk of all of the evening’s event photography and photo booth shots, as well as a commemorative book of photos of the evening and awards celebration. The book, created in the same quality and style as the finest wedding albums that I make for my wedding couples, will feature a nice variety of posed photos, recipients receiving their awards, the presenters, candid photos, and venue. The commemorative event book will include a presentations case. Both the book and case feature all edited photos, hand laid out across a number of pages, with final print and binding made in Italy. The album will be on display at the Discount Tire’s corporate office, with a digital version soon to be available here, too.
