New Jersey Event Photography: Tori’s 4th Birthday Party

Yesterday I brought along a very simple but effective setup to photograph my niece’s fourth birthday party, a Tamron SP 24-70mm VC lens, a Canon EOS 6D, and a Canon 580EXII speedlite.  Most of my photos were taken without the flash, as we had nice window light illuminating the party scene.  When doing event photography, I always hope to photograph adults or children “caught up in the moment”.  While I enjoy a nice posed portrait, I think an relaxed candid frame is often a gateway to the soul.

Below are a few of my favorite shots from the birthday party:
