Chester County Event Photographer | Wyebrook Farm

Business

It doesn’t get any more “farm to table” than dinner this past Saturday night at Wyebrook Farm, a sprawling 300+ acre masterpiece of sustainable agriculture created by Dean Carlson. The farm prides itself on creating the best food and healthiest animals without artificial pesticides, fertilizers, herbicides, hormones, or antibiotics.

A tour of the picturesque Chester County venue led to
incredible, old stone buildings,
lush and gorgeous landscaping with fig trees, a small vineyard, flowers, and yards,
a market offering fresh meats, cheeses, and produce,
a café with fresh, organic menu offerings
a beautiful stone garden with plants, flowers, and herbs available for purchase
a pond,
grazing cattle,
snorting pigs,
a friendly farm cat,
and so many more nooks and crannies.

The place was incredible. As a wedding photographer, I couldn’t help but picture a breezy wedding with guests mingling at picnic tables and wandering around the grounds. The weather that night gave up streaming sunlight, unreal clouds, and a quick summer storm.

Jeffrey Miller led the operation which featured a five course snout-to-tail feast, a “paean to pork”. As is always the case when Jeffrey Miller Catering is involved, the presentation and execution were second to none.

Guests started with a beverage station that offered hibiscus iced tea and a Tipsy Arnold Palmer as well as passed hors d’ouevres of mini pork tongue tacos, stuffed roasted fingerling potatoes, and chicharron with pulled pork.

The dinner group was escorted inside the restored 19th century fieldstone barn that featured stone walls, exposed beamed ceiling, and long communal tables dotted with white hydrangea, mason jars, and burlap runners.

I see that you’re salivating. Go ahead and clean yourself up; I’ll wait.

The evening was incredible. The venue, weather, food, and overall ambiance couldn’t be matched. Make a date of it and go to Wyebrook Farm. It really is that magical.

“It is vitally important that we can continue to say, with absolute conviction, that organic farming delivers the highest quality, best-tasting food, produced without artificial chemicals or genetic modification, and with respect for animal welfare and the environment, while helping to maintain the landscape and rural communities.”

You know that sweet and syrupy holiday that’s coming up next week? The one with the flowers and hearts and naked babies with wings and candy and romance… Yeah, Valentine’s Day. It’s a day that’s been smashed over the head by Hallmark and Godiva but it’s still valuable. I like that we may have absolutely crazy lives filled with hectic jobs and unstable in-laws and teething babies and gassy dogs and home renovations and and and… but we have this arbitrary day that reminds us to make a concerted effort to stop and say, “Hey… I love you.” Maybe you do it all the time but some people need that reminder come February. You don’t need to get al ...

[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. Scratch that, lighting is EVERYTHING. (Hello… the prefix “photo” means light.)Not only can lighting make or break the feel of your wedding, it can do the same for your wedding photography. It’s something that can transform and personalize a venue and ...

The new Lindsay Docherty Photography studio is open for business!
There are some very, very fun new things going on at Lindsay Docherty Photography.For one, the new studio in West Mt. Airy is in place! We’re talking consultation, boudoir/newborn shooting space, office, etc. I need to curate some pieces for the walls now that the basic structure is in place. I absolutely love it! I sit on the big comfy sofa and just breathe it in. It’s all mine and it’s amazing. I took a few snapshots on that foggy morning we had the other day. Technically the leaves should be raked, but I love the colors and textures and messiness of them.These beautiful, original doors were in the basement of the house for who knows ...
