Jose Garces | Private Event Photography in Bucks County

Business

It was such a pleasure to photograph Chef Jose Garces’ Luna Farm (named after Luna, the family’s bulldog) for a private event last month.

The 100% organic 40-acre farm in Bucks County is gorgeous. There are sprawling fields rows upon rows of fruits and vegetables used in the famous Garces family restaurants on the east coast (JG Domestic, Amada, Distrito, Garces Trading Co., Tinto, Village Whiskey, Rosa Blanca). It is the family’s calming and lovely retreat from the city.

Guests mixed and mingled on the patio with the Iron Chef himself while munching on beautiful and tasty hors d’oeuvres.

Chef Garces then led a demonstration with fresh mozzarella and ricotta.

Guests were escorted down to the beautiful sailcloth tent for a delicious dinner and a delightfully informal Q&A with Chef Garces. I loved that Chef Garces spent some time in the back preparing and plating the meal himself.

It was a gorgeous evening at the beautiful farm.

[the value of] Fantastic Event Lighting
The other day I was talking to Becky over at Synergetic Sound + Lighting about my strong feelings towards additional lighting at weddings. I think it does more to a room than any other element. So she told me I should write up a post on it. So I did! Go check out Synergetic's blog to catch that post and see what they can do with lighting...Lighting is kind of a big deal for photographers.
