The Camera’s Eye – An August Wedding in Owego, NY

Another wedding post from The Camera’s Eye! Capri and Ryan’s wedding took place at the bride’s family home in Owego, NY. Capri is SUCH a sweet girl – very funny, heartfelt and theatrical. And of course, a beautiful bride:

The day unfolded under various tents on the family property. Guests were ushered in and given fans and water, and took Polaroids as mementos for the bride and groom.

The day included a hot dog station (what fun!) and ice cream truck Here’s The Twist, owned by Dan Liddic.

After working extensively with a family to prep and complete a wedding shoot, I can always think back to what the day encompassed for me – what my takeaway as the photographer is. What stood out at Capri and Ryan’s wedding was the unBREAKABLE family bond. This is especially apparent between Capri and her uncle, grandma, and dad.

The Camera’s Eye at the Mud Mountain Rock and Run 5K

I was on such a high after shooting the Mud Mountain Rock and Run 5K last month! Time to finally share some photos 🙂

The Run is crazy, crazy fun….and funny at the same time. You see all kinds of runners – those who take it seriously, those who are there to laugh and maybe avoid some of the nastier obstacles, and a non-competitive group who could walk and have fun!

The obstacles aren’t impossible, but they are HARD. I was glad to be behind the camera rather than neck high in mud, like some of the runners.

At the end of the day, it’s an awesome cause. The money raised went to the Family Enrichment Network. All the runners get to wash off with hoses and enjoy some yummy food and great music. There’s a very communal atmosphere, where everyone gathers with friends at picnic tables.

I get so jazzed by the energy at events like the Mud Mountain Rock and Run, and it’s really when I’m shooting something like this that I’m at my BEST!
