American Ballet Theater Fall Gala 2018

It was a real thrill to photograph the American Ballet Theater Gala at Lincoln Center on October the 17th. The space looked fantastic thanks to Event designer Bill Tansey I loved the large red roses. The night paid homage to an all female cast of choreographers and the dances were spectacular.

As always it was fun to see so many familiar faces in the crowd.

Katie Holmes, Olivia Palermo, Violetta Komyshan, Ansel Elgort, Indre Rockefeller, Jennifer Tilly, Deborah Roberts, Diane Sawyer and many more. To see all the photos please see this Photo Link









The Armory Gala 2018

I love the Armory on East 67th street and Park Ave. This enormous structure has become the location for some exciting art events, shows and now that The Waldorf has closed it has become the new party space for some of NY's most fabulous Galas and events. To help keep the building running and to fund its art projects last week was the Armory's own Gala. I was so excited to be there and to see how they transformed the space. I was so happy to see the honoree Marina French and her beautiful daughter Annabelle and Michael Kors. To see all my photos please click on this PHOTO LINK

Carnegie Hall Opening Night Gala Fall 2018

It is always a thrill to find my self at Carnegie Hall. I arrived before the guests and got to sign in at the Stage door where they always remember me. There is something so romantic about being in this empty space. Soon the doors opened and the beautifully dressed Gala guests climbed the stairs to a private cocktail reception. I love to get them right at the top of the stairs or as they are walking towards the boxes before the concert begins. Afterwards there was dinner at Cipriani 42nd Street. At the very end of the night all the guests went home and there was a very special private dinner for the Events crew. We sat together eating delicious food and chatted about the night. Then we all sang happy birthday to Anna who had helped me all night as my special point person. It was nearly 1.30 am when we all said good night.
Not much sleep for me. I needed to be up really early so they could have the photos for press by noon.
