There are a few constants to every wedding in the history of weddings. The first and most important is that the bride is beautiful. Regardless of "good hair days" or weather or even if the cake falls over, the bride herself will be beautiful. She may not always believe this and certainly may be too preoccupied with the events of the day and the schedule she keeps, but rest assured, the bride is the glowing center of the universe on her day. Every single person will notice and if her essence doesn't bring a tear to your eye, they you are cold hearted, my friend, and you don't belong at weddings. Open your heart. Yeesh! It is her day to be the center of everyone's attention and her beauty is on display for all to take notice. The photos will be amazing. The mental notes will be of tremendous beauty.
A bride deserves the backdrop.
Every photographer has unique gifts, angles and tricks to make your photographs unique. You hire them because they have talent. If not, you'd let cousin Charlie use his iphone and you'd capture moments, but let's be clear here. How many days in your life will you hire a photographer to capture moments professionally. Not just for your facebook feed but to proudly display on your mantle for your grandchildren to see how beautiful the bride was on her day? Most people hire a professional only a handful of times in their entire life. IF that. Some only hire a pro for THIS DAY. This photographer can utilize props and your centerpieces, but they can work better if given a larger canvas. Imagine the backdrop of a park. Natural beauty and natural lighting. Blooming trees and flowers not plucked from the ground but a garden deserving of the bride's beauty.
Your photographer deserves the backdrop.
Ok, so what do I mean by the backdrop? Is it a pretty wallpaper on the reception room wall? Maybe. Is it a church? Perhaps. We have many beautiful ones in Litchfield County. But when we step outside into nature's beauty, we find infinite backdrops and choices. The backdrop of rolling waterfalls, of a well manicured garden and blooming trees provides the natural beauty that compliments the bride.
If you walk Harrybrooke Park, there are so many options and so many opportunities that have never been utilized in any photograph. Why? Because it's always changing. The flower in the garden is there for the exact moment in time for you to capture, just like your love and your vows. Unique to you.
Give us a call and come take a walk with our staff who can show you the unique backdrops that this park provides so that you can show your grandchildren exactly what moments were grown for you.
