ie's 2012 reader's choice award | special events

In its 3rd annual Reader's Choice Award, the International Examiner (IE) hired me as their photo booth photographer. I had so much fun that night. It was an nice meeting all the inspirational public figures in the community as well as catching up with my family from KING TV, AAJA and Miss WA USA organization. I also got in a few shots with them (thanks to Larry, Lori Matsukawa's hubby), which rarely happens cause I'm the only photag. :)

But here at this special event, IE highlighted community favorites in over 50 categories, including Arts & Entertainment, Food & Drink, Businesses, and People. Voted by the Asian Pacific American Community, a community dinner and ceremony was held to recognize these individuals, businesses, and organizations.

The night was a HUGE success thanks to IE's event manager, Helen Wing. I was very impressed with the all decorations, food and desserts, and overall, how smoothly the event went. She knows how to throw a party!

P.S. Helen - Thanks for providing the rad backdrop and fun props. You're the best!
