Kicking off Summer with a BBQ Bash!

Posted on June 20th, 2018 in Studio Life by Lauren Peterson

Summer is officially here, and we wanted to celebrate by throwing our very own BBQ bash!

The team at Philip Gabriel Photography is like one big family. We work hard to deliver the best service to all of our clients, while making sure to carve out some time for fun and games! Therefore, this year we decided to host a team BBQ to kick off the summer and celebrate each other! We had such a great time and wanted to share 3 things that made our cook out so much fun!


No cookout would be complete without all of the amazing food! We came prepared with staples like burgers, hotdogs, potato salad as well as fruits and veggies! With Gabe manning the grill, we knew we were in for some tasty burgers and hotdogs! He was ready to go with his spatula and 5 different kinds of cheese to ensure everyone would get exactly what they wanted. Last but definitely not least, we kept cool with the BEST ice cream sundae bar thanks to Bassetts Ice Cream! The kids, as well as most of the adults, had a blast creating their own sundae…or two…or three!


Some of our favorite games from the day included our custom-made Philip Gabriel corn hole set – and of course, water gun fights! While we are all pretty competitive people, we didn’t focus on the corn hole score – we simply focused on having fun. The kids, on the other hand, were very competitive in seeing how many adults they could soak with the water guns! Thankfully it was warm enough out that the cold water was actually refreshing!


Like we’ve said, we are like one big family here at Philip Gabriel Photography. We enjoy working together, as well as having fun together! Food and games are of course necessary for a cookout, but the thing that made it the most fun was being surrounded by the people we care about.

We can’t wait for all of the summer celebrations we will get to enjoy this year with all of our amazing clients!
