This year I have photographed a 50th birthday party and even a 100th birthday party. Now a 40th birthday party can be added to the list for 2013. My oldest friend (since 7th grade) turned 40 in November (thankfully I am almost 9 months younger!) and his wife contacted me about photographing the party which would also be for another one of their friends who was turning 40 as well.
They went all out for this party with several professional casino tables! I guess they really like cards and gambling! There was only play money used though at the party. Above you can see the blackjack table, and there were also roulette and poker tables.
The other theme for this party was football. One Packers fan and one Bills fan. As a life long Dolphins fan I restrained from damaging any Bills balloons or decorations.
There was even a football birthday cake! I had a piece from the Packers side. I always say, the best part about photographing events is getting a piece of cake!
I was not the only way taking photos at the party as many people would get together with their phones to even take group shots (see above). I enjoyed the chance to combine business and personal by photographing my oldest friend's birthday party. Now I wonder about an 80th birthday party??
