Marriotts Awards for Excellence

By May 21, 2013June 3rd, 2015Event Photography

I was totally unaware of the awards that Marriott gives out every year to some of it’s notable employees until Mark was hired to shoot their Awards of Excellence event. I was so impressed with Marriott’s work culture and the way they foster and reward good employees, which seems to be lacking in much of the corporate world. Mark and I are both Washington natives ( I know that’s rare) and I remember when Marriott started Hot Shoppes in Bethesda. It was a huge treat to go there and be waited on in the parking lot, like something out of Happy Days. And now, they are a huge conglomerate with  businesses around the globe, but yet they have been able to hang onto that family culture which attracts the best. Below are some highlights from the shoot.
