A 70th Birthday Celebration | Long Island Event Photographer

A few weeks ago I had the honor of photographing a surprise 70th birthday party for the patriarch of this amazing family, who flew in to Long Island from all corners of the U.S. for this very special celebration. Held in the gorgeous atrium at Rare 650 in Syosset, this was a joyous night - complete with a live Cuban band! I so enjoyed watching all the generations come together and was so happy to be able to capture the night for them.

A few of my favorite images from the party are below.
