A huge part of my process of choosing events to shoot, is supporting businesses and owners who are passionate about what they do. Last weekend I was able to photograph such a stylish and enjoyable event for a great cause. San Diego Made is an artist collective organization that aims to increase awareness of the local arts within the San Diego community and promote the Shop Local. This event was set up as a 1920’s Speakeasy with so many awesome vendors, and all proceeds supported the San Diego Made Factory to build a sustainable space for makers and creatives. I was thrilled to not only be a part of it but be able to enjoy all of the elements as I worked. I would hardly call stuffing my face and meeting new people a hard job, but, someone has to do it!
