One of the most spectacular events I’ve had the privilege to shoot took place at a private estate in Beverly Hills. Coordinated by the incomparable Sonia Sharma at Sonia Sharma Events, this event will be talked about for years to come. The vendors involved with this job really pulled out all the stops to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience for all the invited guests. Sonia designed and coordinated everything to the very last detail with absolute precision, and I was just floored by what she was able to accomplish. And that goes for all the other vendors who were involved, too — they literally took my breath away. From the renaissance children’s area to the Alice in Wonderland cocktail area to the Aladdin themed party, this was an event for the ages. With second camera by Yoshi Morimoto and third camera by Christine Marie.
