The O'Dell Center was a lovely place to relax in the shade and network with other vendors. Nyla Rosen has a gem of a location! I'm looking forward to someday using the O'Dell Center as a spot for wedding or engagement photography. The heat was intense but thanks to several catering businesses -Down Home Catering, Maui Wowi Smoothies and Missole Catering- everyone was able to beat the weather. Staying hydrated was a pleasure thanks to the efforts of Frances Skeete from Missole Catering, Brandy and Frankie from Down Home Catering, shown below, and Mairim and Matt from Maui Wowi Smoothies, shown at far bottom. I look forward for chances to work with the other wedding and event vendors that I met this morning! Everyone was very engaging, friendly and supportive. I can't wait to work with them in the future.

Meeting up and Networking
This morning I attended a fantastic networking event hosted by the South King County Event and Wedding Vendor Meetup Group. I'm always looking to promote my Seattle and Tacoma wedding photography opportunities and this meetup was not a let down! The event organizers, Janis Flagg and Nyla Rosen, arranged for a summer business showcase at the O'Dell Center in Kent. Many local wedding and event vendors braved the heat for a chance to promote their business and meet other professionals from the Seattle-Tacoma region.
