Thankful that I had John to help me with my ongoing monthly photo project today.  I photographed a birth all day and there was just enough light left at the end of this gorgeous day for him to capture a photo of me with my monkeys (and a nephew monkey as well!)

Rooke Chapel wedding and Colonial Pines Barn reception

Photography by John + Kimberly

Event Coordinator – H&K Weddings

Cake Artist – Rita’s Bakeshop

Florist – The Details Matter

Musician – Gypsy Wisdom

Caterer – JDK

Photographers notes: Taylor + Jeff had a beautiful wedding at the infamous Rooke Chapel at Bucknell. We love this chapel, so light and airy.. perfect for photography! These two love birds were a joy to photograph and every detail of the day was so lovely.  Colonial Pines is just the perfect central PA wedding venue to pull off that shabby chic look. As you can see, Taylor and Jeff even added a tasteful splash of preppy which is always fun to photograph. It was a fast paced day with a little bit of rain but the party was a rockin’ one and we were so happy to be there to capture such a fun day for two really great people. On to the photos…

Taylor got ready in a farmhouse next to the barn and it was just lovely!  The girls had so much fun with prep.

I had the amazing pleasure of spending the day last Friday with David Wittig, an absolutely astounding photographer from Chicago and a good friend and mentor that I knew online. We eventually met in person at a photographers retreat about 6 years ago and have kept in touch ever since. Dave is an inspiration to me because he is not only talented, but he is a strong willed and opinionated introvert.  I like people who can confidently back up their opinions and decisions with well thought out reasons.  Being around Dave is refreshing because he takes risks and moves into the spaces he wants to occupy with a lot of deep consideration, reflection and then proceeds with courage and authority. I don’t know many people like him, which helps him stand out, at least to me. He’s my kind of guy. Right now Dave is basically a Leica toting vagabond, roaming the open roads in a beautiful Porsche Boxter,  looking for a place to call home.  Sounds pretty awesome, doesn’t it?  He stopped by the studio and we had some good, solid one on one time and maybe some breakfast food.

Time with other artists is an important part of the whole “I’m a photographer” experience. This  industry changes on a dime and it takes a lot of effort to sustain a full time living and to feed a family with it. Needless to say, to survive, I depend on lots of conversations with people who know the profession; people who have been through the ups (and especially the downs) of business ownership. The statistics are real, a photographer can spend a lifetime in a room all alone and I’m no exception. The longer I steer this ship on my own this way, the more likely I am to veer this business off course (or into the ground). In an ocean of business possibilities and confusion it’s easy to feel on track one day and wake up the next day 1000 miles from your goal. Thankfully, I have a large network of people willing to let their own ship drift long enough to help me get back on track. I’m there to do the same in return for them. We all need people like this no matter what industry drives our passions. Who are they? Find them and schedule some time over some good breakfast food.  Thanks Dave. Thank you for taking time with me to catch up on life.  Our conversation was enlightening. It helped me realize a lot of things about myself that I hadn’t taken the time to consider;  I have something good going, I am blessed to love what I do and that is worth a lot.
