Another SRQ post! The April issue features, in addition to several Sarasota wedding photographers :-), the annual readers awards, “Best of SRQ Local.” A handful of other photographers and I were asked to capture voters with their picks – This is the first year SRQ has added this twist, and it was really fun to meet the local voters and hear about their favorite spots.
Here are the ones I shot…
Voter Frank Maggio with Wendy Gingerich and Valarie Wadsworth at Yume Sushi, first runner-up for Best Sushi:
Phil Carey at Mozaic, contender for Best Wine Menu:
Elsie Gilmore at Everything but the Girl, second runner-up for Best Place to Find a Gift, and Molly Klauber at Mediterraneo, second runner-up for Best Pasta:
Voter Lisa Angely with Brett Blackburn, Austin Gobczynski and Tyler Angely at Caragiulos, which she voted for Best Family Restaurant:
Lastly, I voted for the Ringling Museum as Best Visitor Attraction, which got second runner-up behind Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium and the winner, Sarasota’s beaches. Cat Pennenga photographed me, along with my sister Dana and handsome little nephew, Ethan, by the Ca d’Zan:
