I’ve been photographing for Tradeshow Executive Magazine for a few years, and I always get to meet fantastic people that the magazine features on their covers. The shoot for the December “Women To Watch” issue was such a fun assignment!!!

The publisher and editor of the magazine, Gabrielle Weiss, has made her mark on the magazine since joining the team several years ago. Gabrielle has a really strong vision for this publication, which covers the tradeshow industry across all verticals.

When Gabrielle told me she wanted to do the first ever Women To Watch issue and feature several women on the cover, I was immediately excited about the photoshoot.

We took these photos at the gorgeous Monarch Bay Resort in Dana Point, CA. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of women to spend the day with. Each of the women featured in this issue were so lovely and appreciative of being featured in the magazine. The fact that they were going to be on the COVER was a surprise to these women — it was reveled to them the night after this photoshoot at the Awards Summit.

Congratulations to all of these fabulous Women To Watch!!!
