Toledo Event Photography – Employee Appreciation Day

Toledo Event Photography

Employee Appreciation Day

Toledo Event PhotographyToledo Event Photography by Kurt Nielsen Photography and Kurt’s Kustom Keepsakes is customized for every event that we do do for the business or event or both.  For instance, on this past Saturday, my team had the honor of being part of an employee appreciation event for the employees and their families of BP Husky Toledo Refinery at the Toledo Zoo.  My team set up the photo booth in the new Malawi Event Center.  This is where most of the day’s activities were being held.  For this event, we printed 5 x 7 photos for the families.  Each family was able to choose the background that they wanted for their photo.  They also had the opportunity to use our props.  Some families didn’t want to use props.  Instead, they wanted a nice family photo to remember the day.  There were 4 different zoo themed backgrounds from which to choose.  One of the backgrounds was a picture of one of the polar bears that I took at the Toledo Zoo on the site visit for this event.

Fall Portraits in the Park – Toledo Family Photographer

Fall Portraits in the Park – Toledo Family Photographer fall portraits in the parkOne of the best times of year to have outside family portraits taken is in the fall when the colors are so vibrant. fall children photos According to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, fall peak color for our area is going to be a little later this year because of the weather we had this summer.  The current forecast is that we will hit peak around the middle of October.  We picked Sunday, October 18 for our fall portraits special because it will be right in the middle of peak fall colors at Wildwood.
