I photographed an elaborate and beautiful party thrown yesterday in Scottsdale by a Persian couple for their friends. A few of my favorite food shots:
I have honestly never in my life been in a room with so many gorgeous women. They were more intimidating than the high school cheer squad. Imagine hair, dresses, shoes, handbags, teeth, skin and jewels you only see in magazines. Now imagine 30 of them, with really sweet husbands in tow, in one room. I can’t post their photos because I didn’t ask permission and try to be careful about such things. Let’s just say, I once thought the Hispanic culture (namely, the women of Torreon, Mexico) had the most unbelievably beautiful, put together women in the world. Persians rival this, toe to manicured toe.
(And of course, to live up to my luck and lack of preparation, I was wearing flats, a messy braid, a shirt that should have been pressed, and blanket of insecurity. I don’t own a thing that would have been appropriate anyway, so at least I was comfy.)
