Jay’s 50th Surprise Party at Mangia Bevi


I love when we get to shoot things that are a little different from our daily fare. Jay’s wife, BJ, threw this amazing, relaxed party with the help of the wonderful Debbie Orwat of Save the Date Events. The party was at Mangia Bevi, part of Palazzo Verdi, in the Denver Tech Center, but Jay just thought he was headed to dinner with some close family. We love photographing emotion and story, and seeing him so surprised and excited to see unexpected friends was just a joy. And it was clear that BJ loves her husband very much. So fun!

These might be the best sweet potato fries I’ve ever had. Sweet, spicy, crunchy- yum.
