On February 11, Corey and I attended an evening of fine dining at St. Christopher's Hotel with a fabulous menu created and prepared by Eric Kinch & Pauline Gilliam.

When Eric mentioned photographing this event, we knew it would be something different. It was a new topic for us - Food Photography - and it's a yummy one! The menu was fantastic, the food tasted fabulous and to see the tremendous amount of effort from the Chefs and Staff at St. Christopher's Hotel was beyond impressive. It gave a whole new meaning to the word "teamwork".

Thanks to everyone for having us and putting up with us getting in the way once or twice :D

Here's a sample of a few shots we took throughout the night. You can click on the photos to see them larger.

Enjoy and thanks for looking!
