We had an incredible time with our roaming photography at a surprise retirement party!
Emma DeCaro (the brains of the operation) wrote a wonderful recap of the event and we wanted to share it on this blog post:
“On Saturday, August 3rd, Mr. Vise thought he was going to lunch with a former student, but instead unsuspectingly walked in a ballroom filled with 300 former students, band parents, and colleagues.
A student from each of his six schools gave a short speech about what their time in Mr. Vise’s band meant to them. Afterward, we presented him with a plaque a show-shirt collage and signed copy of the score to An American Elegy by Frank Ticheli.
One of his students baked three incredibly special cakes, cake balls, and her famous fudge marble cookies (everything tasted as good as it looked). One of the cakes had 35 stars on it— each star corresponded to the school colors and number of years he served at each school.
To conclude the afternoon, the band Sometimes a Legend, featuring Lake Travis graduates, played amazing music while everyone greeted and took pictures with Mr. Vise.”
To commemorate the special occasion, we had our roaming photographer take pictures of Mr. Vise with his past colleagues and students in front of our navy sequin backdrop! We wanted the attendees to have time to socialize with each other and the guest of honor, so roaming photography was the perfect option! Abbie Hillis from Abbie Cole Hillis Events planned and organized the party and it went off without a hitch! We had such a great time at the event and we want to wish a huge congratulations to Mr. Vise on his retirement!
