Hello to everyone!
Angela and I are very excited to bring you today’s post! We were both very fortunate to have had the opportunity to be the official gift lounge photographers for Raj of Fronte and Sentre Communications at this year’s Canadian Country Music Awards. They were held on Monday September the 12th in Hamilton at the Copps Coliseum. The gift lounge that Raj and her amazing team (especially Lorie) organized for the talent was fabulous! For two days the talent browsed the booths and were introduced to so many fantastic vendors and their products. The kindness shown by everyone was heart warming. What an incredible experience for everyone involved. We loved working with you all and hope to see you again next year:)
You all loved the photobooth right? We certainly did!
