Louisville SWIG 2018 | Old Forester Speakeasy at the Kentucky Center for African American Heritage

I absolutely love doing event photography for local Louisville events like Louisville Magazine's Louisville SWIG, and I’m thrilled I was able to photograph the Old Forester Speakeasy for the second year in a row! The event was December 7th, and took place at the Kentucky Center for African American Heritage, again celebrating the end of prohibition (Repeal Day).

In addition to fabulous bourbon cocktails and appetizers, guests enjoyed entertainment from magician Richard E. Darshwood and Cirque Louis, 1920's and 30's hairstyles for the ladies by J. Michael's Spa & Salon, shoe shines for the gentlemen by The Executive Shoe Shine, and the beautiful vocal stylings of Carly Johnson. Guests were also able to print their own postcards from the event using a vintage letterpress from Hound Dog Press! Models from Heyman Talent helped guests at the selfie photo booth and posed for photos. There was also the feature Old Forester ice sculpture— definitely a fabulous centerpiece. All in all, a fantastic night celebrating the end of prohibition— but don’t take my word for it, check out the photos!!
