Jim Calvert’s 90th Birthday / San Antonio Country Club

Celebration Photography at it’s Finest

What makes an occasion so special? Aside from the theme, food, the setting, the music or any other features you have planned, you want to know your photographer is more than adept at taking pictures. Celebration photography is often overlooked and can provide the best memories. When you choose Parish Photography, you get a partner for the entire process – from pre-party consultation to site visits and top-notch communications to help us get the best sense of what’s important to you. Your input is most important so we can capture the actual personality of your celebration with photos that speak to you about what was happening at that exact moment we snapped the picture. And don’t worry – we’re also super at edits, filters or touch-ups!

90th Birthday Party in San Antonio

This celebration was an honor to photograph.  Mr. Calvert’s grandchildren, two brothers and even groomsmen from his wedding day 63 years ago all came to attend the event.  With a harpist playing in the background, guests mixed and mingled and congratulated Mr. Calvert on his 90 years of life. Pictures from every decade adorned the walls and every table.  Speeches came from his children, family and friends about his humility, devotion to his wife and family, and his incredible hunting skills.

It was to no surprise that his humble speech only talked about the successes of his family and not of his many accomplishments.  He was presented with a  congratulatory letter from the Governor of Texas as well as with an honorary Admirable in the Texas Navy distinction.  The evening came to an end with a standing ovation and bagpipe serenade from his grandson.  Here’s to many more birthday celebrations, Mr. Calvert!  We can’t wait till the big 100!

We love photographing birthdays.  Check out some more here.
