"The Days of Wine and Roses" - Photoshoot and social get together

  • August 16, 2013 · 5:30 PM
  • Denver Botanical Gardens

What: - The gardens should be bursting with color from summer flowers in full bloom.  Let’s take advantage of the softer late day light to get some shots after work.

When you are done shooting, join me on the Monet Deck by the lily pond for BYOB wine, beer or any beverage you wish to bring and some munchies which I will provide. I will grab a couple of tables on the deck when I get there at 5:30pm. I am not planning on doing any shooting that day so feel free to come by and drop off your drinks, and anything else you don’t want to drag around the gardens with you while you are shooting.

Where: The Denver Botanic Gardens (York Street)

The Denver Botanic  Gardens Photo Policy: http://www.botanicgardens.org/plan-your-visit/facility-and-garden-rentals/york-street/york-street-photography-guidelines

When: August 16, 2013.

5:30pm – Photo shoot.

7:30 to 8:00pm‘ish - Social get together on the Monet Deck by the Lily pond. The gardens are open till 9:00pm.

Cost: Admission to the Botanic Gardens is $12.50 if you don’t have a membership.  For those who have a plus one membership and wish to share your guest pass, I would encourage you to post your offer in the comments field.  Thanks in advance!

What to bring: Anything you wish to drink plus your wine glasses, bottle openers etc.  Wine and beer are allowed as is bringing your own food. This is not a potluck and you will not need to bring anything to share unless you wish to. The Monet Deck Cafe closes at 6pm and the grill closes at 5:30pm so there will be no concessions available during our get together.  Feel free to drop off your things with me at the deck before shooting. 

So come have some creative fun with the flowers and come and meet your fellow photographers!

    Thank you everyone for your wonderful feedback. This was indeed a very pleasant evening! I also want to add that anyone can organize a meetup. If you have a fun idea for a meetup or an interesting place for a photoshoot, I would encourage you to let us know. I can help you either put it together or try to make it happen.

      Karen, of you'll go ahead and change your RSVP to no, the system will automatically take you off the list and channel someone on the waiting list into your spot. Thanks for letting us know.
