Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux Wine Tasting {Washington, DC}

A little while back I mentioned the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux 2010 Vintage Tasting that I photographed for Pearson’s at the Willard Intercontinental. It was a stellar event organized by Pearson’s David Choi. Wine makers & chateau owners poured more than 125 of 2010’s best wines from the region.Watermarked UGC Elizabeth Parker_0001 Watermarked UGC Elizabeth Parker_0002

After the tasting for the public wrapped up, we moved up to the grand ballrooms in the Willard for a cocktail reception followed by an amazing dinner. It goes without saying, that things got a little sillier at this point!

Like I could resist photographing the delicious food…

French Ambassador,  François Delattre, addressed the attendees (including the Portuguese and Finnish Ambassadors) about the importance of the wine industry in Bordeaux and the strong relationship between the US and France.

I’m still smiling from his closing remarks, “Vive les Etats-Unis! Vive la France! Vive le Bordeaux!”

Nothing like kicking off your heels and climbing on top of a table for a group photo of some of the best winemakers in the business and foreign dignitaires…

I rarely get my picture taken at events, but when the Ambassador of France (my second home) says “Oh we have to take a picture together!” who am I to decline?

In Front of the Camera: On a Fashion Site! (what?!)

How thrilling! Not a photography post, per se, but while I was shooting the HRC Out for Equality Inauguration Ball, fashion site What Do I Wear? got this great photo of Khamp S Photography, Joel Cas, Affinity Inc Magazine publisher, Robin Dillard, and I. It’s always fun for me to be in front of the lens for once!

And I won’t lie… being in a room of gorgeous men telling me that they love my dress, my hair, etc. isn’t a bad way to spend an evening… even if they’re not interested!

Published: L’Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux in France’s Le Figaro

Et voilà! Elizabeth Parker Photographie has returned back to its French roots! One of my photos is appearing in France’s newspaper Le Figaro‘s L’Avis du Vin.

I was very excited to be asked to photograph this amazing evening at the Willard Intercontinental for by David Choi, proprietor of Pearson’s Wines and Spirits and organizer of the event. L’Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux tours the US and Canada every year, but this is the first time in a decade that they have stopped in DC. The night was a huge success with several ambassadors and senators in attendance.

Much thanks to Bijan Jabbari who reports to Le Figaro from Washington. You can see the article below. My photo is the 2nd one of many of the winemakers with the Ambassador of France, François Delattre.
