Glamourous Corporate Holiday Party–Catering by Hugh Groman at Terra Gallery

Shoey Sindel photographed a Hugh Groman Catering corporate holiday party held at the San Francisco Terra Gallery. Photography included food and details from the event.

There are holiday parties and then there are HOLIDAY PARTIES.  This holiday party, designed, catered and managed by Hugh Groman Catering,  stood out among others as a must-see affair.  The event was held at San Francisco venue, Terra Gallery.  As event photographer, I enjoy the variety of photographing the people, food and decor.  This evening, I was hired by Hugh Groman Catering to photograph the food, details and ambiance of the event.  There were plenty details, colors and designs to keep this photographer happy all evening.

Here’s Hugh, Nicky and Nancy cheesing it up before the guests arrived.
