Gala Photography With Top Chefs – American Liver Foundation – The Fairmont Grand Del Mar

It was my pleasure to again donate event gala photography services to the American Liver Foundation for their 12th Annual Flavors of San Diego Gala at The Fairmont Grand Del Mar Resort. The gala photography included four hours of onsite shooting plus another 10 hours in image processing time.

The Flavors was a culinary experience that went beyond the traditional gala by providing each table of attendees with top local San Diego chefs who prepared a multi-course dinner. The meals showcased the signature dishes of culinary experts, going beyond the usual restaurant fare. Like the food, the tables themselves were also a feast for the eyes because of the many wonderful and creative place settings, themes, and centerpieces.

Pictured in this article are some of my San Diego event photographer favorites of the gala photography for the American Liver Foundation. What you’ll also see here are event gala photography shots of the silent auction that took place earlier in the evening, chef’s preparing ‘tweezer food’, awards presentations, and live actions.

The complete gallery of all photos is available on my San Diego Event Photographer Client Galleries page. You can also the last events that I donated photography for the American Liver Foundation, including event photography of:

There were many highlights that this year’s gala photography captured. These included activity of the bidding and auctioning of numerous wonderful items, the flurry of activity of the chefs and staff preparing and presenting their creations, plus the speakers and presentations. Awards were also given to Flavors Gala Honoree Rohit Loomba, M.D., UCSD Associate Professor of Medicine, and another award was given to Flavors Chef of the Decade, Chef Kurt Metzler of Kitchen 4140.
