Hi friends!  Thanks for popping by our blog today!  Andy + I had the honor + pleasure of photographing the 2012 Thomas Caterers Menu Tasting Event at the Scottish Rite Cathedral in Indianapolis.  We absolutely adored this hard-working, talented staff of fun people.  Just wait until you see some of their amazing creations below!

A special thanks to the following for making this event such a huge success:  Owners Susan Thomas-Crannell + Kelly Early; Event Designers Vincent Early, Dee Haddadd, Renee Miner + Dawn Parham;  Chefs Rachanee Keovorabouth, Toby Miles + Todd Kennedy;  Equipment Manager Keith Cunningham;  Office Manager Kendra Meuchel;  Staff Coordinator Micky Ruble; and members of the Double Eagle Cafe Arsela Alibegovic + Chef Barbara Roman.  (PS:  Be sure to head over to Thomas Caterers Facebook Page to see more of their fabulous food!)

It was also such a treat to work alongside Bob Ridge from IndyVisual and A Classic Party Rental.

Now… on to the photos!
