Women Against Multiple Sclerosis Luncheon 2014 \\ Hyatt Regency, Greenwich, CT

May 12, 2014  •  10 Comments

This is my second year volunteering as a photographer for the National MS  Society, Connecticut Chapter. The Hyatt Regency Hotel in Greenwich is the perfect location to host a special event. Not only is it absolutely gorgeous inside, but it's only a 3-minute ride from my house! :)

I started out by taking a couple shots at the step-and-repeat. I wish I could have stayed longer to photograph more gorgeous women, but it was time for me to set up my equipment in the ballroom.

She has a powerful testimony. She was abducted at the age of 14 and held captive by a man and woman in Utah. She was rescued 9 months later. Now she travels around the world telling her story to encourage others.

Before Elizabeth finish speaking, I already knew every woman would stand to her feet to give a huge round of applause.

Your color and exposure are so beautifully even. I would love to hear your lighting set up on these. These types of events can have such challenging lighting. Great job and such a worthy cause!
