Birthday Party with DJ Set
Ryan had big plans for his 30th Birthday Party with DJ set at The Bently in Liverpool. He approached us after seeing our work at a wedding fayre at Sefton Park Palm House.
The Bentley is a relatively new venue in Liverpool, and we were really looking forward to working there. It’s located on the Strand with amazing views of the 3 Graces (Royal Liver Building, The Cunard Building and the Port of Liverpool Building). Inside, there are two spacious function rooms including a stage, and there are plans for a rooftop bar area.
He wanted us to photograph his event in a creative documentary style that was similar to our wedding photography. Telling the story of this event required both great candid photography and social skills. I made sure spoke to as many of the guests as possible so they felt comfortable with my presence and then proceeded to shoot candid images from a distance. I really enjoyed merging into the dance floor to sap up the atmosphere and capture those intense dance moves. I found it hard to leave as the dance floor was banging, and had to decline an invitation to the after-party due to shoot the next day. Damn!
Anyway, here’s a taste of what happened that night.
