Local Sprouts catering hired me — not to photograph the wedding itself, but to document them at work preparing and serving food at this elegant wedding. Starting with all the “prep” cooking of local organic food in their Portland kitchen, I then followed them to the wedding tent, and mostly their temporary kitchen in a nearby house.
What a joy it was to watch this energetic and talented crew. And the wedding guests? Well, I wasn’t photographing their smiles or contentment, or recording the praise they lavished on the entire Local Sprouts crew.
For me, this is photography as story telling — What I do at weddings, in a dance studio, or on any other assignment.
