James Beard Foundation Dinner: The Jefferson Hotel

We had the pleasure of photography the Third Annual Friends of Beard Benefit Dinner on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at Lemaire at The Jefferson Hotel.

Chef Walter Bundy and the staff of Lemaire presented the best of Richmond cuisine with guest chefs Dale Reitzer of Acacia, Joe Sparatta of Heritage, Lee Gregory of The Roosevelt and Jason Alley of Pasture and Comfort to benefit the James Beard Foundation.

A cocktail reception was followed by a six-course dinner representing the signature dishes of each chef and the culinary influences of the Richmond Region. We have included the menu at the end of this post. We hope you enjoy the pictures!

 Princess for a Day from Make a Wish

We get to participate in many special events and projects as photographers, but this one rates right at the top of our list. In December, Hayes and Fisk Photography was honored with the opportunity to take part in Princess Liset’s special day. Thanks to the Greater Virginia Chapter of Make A Wish Liset was able to spend the day at The Jefferson Hotel and be treated like a true royal princess.

Liset’s family joined her for a full day of pampering, a special dinner, lots of gifts and night at Richmond’s most historic hotel. Princess Liset even had a special Prince visit her and give her a beautiful, magical necklace.

These pictures are really special to us and we hope that you enjoy this visual tour of a very special Make A Wish.
