Fairfield County is home to many fine restaurants. One of my favorites is Southport’s Artisan Restaurant. I have photographed many events their and I really enjoy the atmosphere and the elegant back drops. The lighting itself is really nice. I feel the fixture bulbs and the ceiling reeds are really cool. Casey and Clinton had their wedding ceremony upstairs and said their vows in front of the fire place. It was a very intimate ceremony with family only. Afterwards, a hundred and fifty guests partied until the music died. My high school friend Paul Locano of James Daniel’s Entertainment was the wizard spinning music for the guests. Pure fun.
Today’s snow fall made our yard into a winter wonderland. Of course I have to feed the chickens first. And I love the way the snow sits on my dad’s apple trees, it never gets old.
Chris an Happy were married at Fairchild Wheeler on Saturday’s blizzard. What a great time for a wedding. My wife has a GMC Yukon so I really had no problem getting to the wedding. Chris was my college room mate at Flagler College and I was really excited to be there to capture his wedding. It was funny, the moment we got outside the biggest gust of wind came along and almost knocked the bride over. they were good troopers though and the day was wonderful. Chris is a tour guide in Africa for Tauck Tours and he met Happy in Africa. They have a little adorable girl Victoria named after Chris’s mom who passed away. What great energy! And I am so happy to be apart of their special wedding.
Inspira Marketing hired our studio to photograph Diageo represntatives show casing new liquor products. It started out as a mixology party with reps presenting new products from Diageo. One was a peppermint liqour where the outside of the bottle actually had a peppermint smell to it. After mixing some really exotic combinations, we started our journey to South Norwalk for a bar crawl. Believe it or not, this was my first bar crawl. Each bar that we visited had a special cocktail inspired by the Diageo reps. Burger Bar Bistro, Blind Rhino, Cask Republic and Harlan Publick was our destinations. I walked away from this gathering with a great appreciation for South Norwalk. It is truly a gem and with all the new renovations and new restaurants, it is a fabulous place to visit.
Living in Westport my whole life I can really appreciate what a great community we have. What better way to celebrate the New Year by having a fireworks display downtown? I purchased my DJI Drone in April and had logged in enough hours, took an online course for a license and just registered it. The quality is spectacular. I use the drone for real estate, architects, landscape designers and every business that could use an aerial shoot. The learning curve is not big, but I think it takes a lot of confidence to master cool pans and seamless movements.
