Such a beautiful sunny day with a beautiful couple. The setting was in New Milford, CT at Candlelight Farms Inn. An outdoor wedding set for the longest day of the year in the summer. Kate and Eric were such a fun and easy going couple that took direction perfectly and picked up things quickly. Live band, micro brewed beers, great food and lots of outdoor games. This wedding had the feeling of a formal backyard bash.
I woke up to see a post from a friend that made me, in a big way, realize that photography isn’t just about taking photos. It’s about the energy , experience and relationships that are built in and around the moment. Those moments are combined 1/160th of a second at a time. At the end of the day they assemble more than just a gallery, they build friendships. Check out my friend Jen’s experience of working with complete strangers for a day.

I recall vividly, as a child, going to the library to check out the same book. I don’t recall the title, but I do remember gazing at all the drawings of contraptions, gadgets and gizmos. I hope I come across that book again someday. For now, this video fulfills my fix. It must have been a combination of excitement an frustration the whole time it was built and recorded.
