I was so blessed this past week to be a part of an Oscar Party collaboration with Simply Smashing Events in Medford, Oregon.  Genevieve worked so hard to create decor and party food for this shoot and it turned out amazing!  My good friends Moriah and Ben were perfect models for this event!  They put up with me telling them to keep eating all the delicious food although I’m pretty sure they enjoyed it!  Some of these photos were featured on Genevieve’s Oscar Party segment on KRDV Newswatch 12.  Here are my favorite shots from the event!  Thanks to everyone who donated their products and services to make this shoot possible!

I loved all the confetti on the floor with a hint of the models’ outfits

Ben dropped some confetti for me while I was on the floor taking photos (I almost always end up on the floor of my shoots)

Such fun with props and drinks

Who doesn’t love throwing confetti…these two obviously had a good time

Moriah and Ben enjoying the seared duck…

…and a little champagne to wash it down

This pose is so necessary at an Oscar Party

Ben was all about poppin’ champagne for the Oscar Party!

Have photo booth, take kiss photo
