Napa Like a Tourist but the Event Photographer

One of my favorite gigs of the year is the Napa Seafood Summit. So while I’m the official event photographer, I also eat and drink-a lot. It is three very full days with fish mongers. Yes, I said fish mongers! They do exist but let’s just say it isn’t like you see in Seattle at the market. This diverse group comes from around the world to talk business, eat, drink and be merry. It isn’t all fun and games though. There is an abundance of EVERYTHING but they know how to give back to. Many of them contribute to foundations that help others in the fishing industry. I learned that poverty in Alaska is a serious thing. I had no idea. One foundation is helping a small town who rely solely on fishing deep in Guatemala. I have a great time at this event and feel as if I’ve been on a 3 day bender after but it is fun and truly rewarding.

This is just about the details and what Napa and its people have to offer. If you are interested, I highly recommend any of these vendors and spaces. They were instrumental in making it all happen and don’t hold back on doing what they do best. From venues to wineries to caterers to transportation and designers and florists, it’s a tremendous amount of work and a year in planning. I have to hand it to the man he charge because yes, he’s a fish monger not in the event industry at all. He has the smarts though to put into the hands of us that know the business.

Girl and The Fig catering, Idell Family Vineyard, Silverado Resort, Whetstone Winery, Mondavi Winery, Pure Luxury Transportation, Trident Seafood, Fleury Winery and this is just to name a few. It’s amazing how many people work to make 100 people very, very happy. Including this oh so content and satiated event photographer.

    Hi Misti!

    I can pick out every Robert Mondavi Winery photo – from the patio dancers to the blue shirted waitstaff – and the lovely Vineyard Room.
    Your photos are exquisite and I am happy wen I look at them. If anyone ever says to me I need a photographer – I know the name to pass on!
    Lots of love! Linda Bausch
