Sometimes corporate event photography can be pretty dry – lots of serious faces – not always ideal environments for great candid photos. However, I have done enough of this type of work that I can pretty much always leave an event with a great collection of candid / group / detail shots to show off the best aspects of any corporate event. This particular event was held in one of the ballrooms at the Santa Clara Convention Center in, you guessed it, Santa Clara. This event was celebrating a company merger/acquisition and there was an open bar – both of which encourages plenty of smiles. Enjoy my favorites below :)
