❤ Claudia Grove | Sweet Sixteen ❤

Article from the Val De Vie GRAPEVINE MAGAZINE.

It was a great pleasure for the Events team to host Val de Vie resident, Claudia’s sweet 16 birthday party at the Val de Vie Polo Club Restaurant.
A pink and turquoise décor scheme set the tone for a beautifully styled event.
The guests were greeted on arrival with virgin strawberry daiquiris served in square chutney bottles as a delicious welcoming drink.
A luxurious high-tea spread awaited the girls, offering treats such as cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches, mini sun-dried tomato and feta tartlets,
bacon and cheese quiches, chicken and mushroom pies, mini strawberry cheesecakes in tumblers, mini lemon meringue pies,
mini moist carrot cake cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and soft pink and turquoise macaroons.
The bookshelves were transformed into an extravagant candy and cake station, with the theme “sweet sixteen and never missed a treat”.
The fun-filled day was a true celebration of Claudia, from the personalised details in the décor to the birthday performers.
Val de Vie Events thoroughly enjoyed conceptualising such a special day for such a lovely young lady.

Thank you to GRAPEVINE MAGAZINE for featuring my photos of Claudia.

Once again we fell so blessed to have had Claudia as the photographer who captured some special moments on a day that was a big highlight in my daughters life. Claudias (our daughter with the same name) Sweet Sixteen birthday party was an event that she has dreamt about long before it actually occurred. The photographs that Claudia took and then edited almost to perfection will be something memorable and tangible to take with her for the rest of her life. Claudia proved herself to be very professional, in both her technical and communication skills. She also has the extraordinary ability to bring out the best in the people whom she takes photos of, by making them feel comfortable in front of the lens, as well as to act spontaneously for the camera. The outcome of these good human interaction qualities, also delivered quality pictures and within a reasonable lead time. She also provided many more photos than what we have actually ordered from her. Claudia definitely adds a great deal of value to all her work. She had an unobtrusive presence whilst still being very much involved when capturing all the stunning photos. We will look no further should we need a photographer again. Every shoot with her seems to be a fun shoot and pleasant experience!
