Volunteering as a Photographer at Night to Shine Prom

Virginia Photographer - 2018 Richmond Night to Shine Prom

Night to Shine, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation, is a wonderful event that sets out to create a prom night experience for individuals with special needs, ages 14 and older. On February 9th, 2018, in more than 500 locations across all 50 states and in 16 countries, more than 150,000 guests were celebrated with their own walk on the red carpet, a sit-down dinner, professional photographs, dancing, limousine rides, karaoke, and more! I was excited to get to volunteer here in Richmond as a red carpet 'paparazzi' photographer for the second year.

The event was sponsored by Richmond area churches and I was excited to run into so many of my old friends from my previous church! The guests all shared different things that they loved about the night, but they all agreed that it was a fabulous event that made them feel loved!

I feel blessed to be able to use my photography skills and camera gear to serve others every single day. But I especially loved getting to be a part of celebrating this community of amazing people again this year. Below, check out the recap video for the 2018 Night to Shine in Richmond, Virginia.
