Always a pleasure working for the DRA’s Raleigh Downtown Farmer’s Market! Here’s a bit of the Honey Buzzitval event from a couple of weeks ago. :) We got to bring home some local honey and it is delicious!

Sometimes we shoot weddings, and other times Carolyn gets paid to photograph food while Geoff stands in line for grilled cheese. This is an event I photographed for the Downtown Raleigh Alliance’s Cheese Please festival at the downtown farmer’s market. This year Buku, Kimbap, The Oakz, Jimmy V’s, and Bolt Bistro competed for the title of Grilled Cheese Champion (i.e. “People’s Choice for Best Grilled Cheese”). This year Jimmy V was the crowning champion, and while I didn’t get to taste any of the food (gluten-intolerant), I did smell it… and looked at it a lot… and maybe drooled a little bit.

Quick four pictures from yesterday’s Ladies’ Luncheon that I sponsored for the Downtown Raleigh Alliance alongside BB&T, North State Bank, SynergySpa, WRAL, and others! The focus this year was women in technology, with Kelcey Carlson moderating. The panelists included Brooks Bell (CEO of Brooks Bell), Kristy Timberlake (owner of Opus 1), and Niki Kohari (project manager for Rally Software and entrepreneur for AgileZen).
