Pumpkin Tea 2018

For the 2018 installment of the Pumpkin Tea, Stephanie added a fun twist, which was to make the event Austenland themed. The movie Austenland takes place in a present-day vacation resort that is supposed to mimic the regency era. But of course, a lot of modern, kitschy touches are included in the styling. Stephanie and her co-hosts Kat and Judy really ran with the theme in the decor and food, while many attendees wore over-the-top accessorized regency costumes. It was a fun event!

On to the photos!

I decided to wear my Regency Wonder Woman costume, since we were definitely not going for historical accuracy that day!

The party continued into the evening, with some gentlemen joining us, including Mike. Mike and I took this opportunity to try some photos with a remote flash. Unfortunately we did not have our usual diffuser with us, only a small portable one. In hindsight, we should have bounced the flash off the ceiling to get softer light. I think the flash is too bright relative to the ambient light in the resulting photos. But we are still learning on-location flash shooting, so we have not fully figured out how to approach different situations on the fly.
