The first picture is one of the house where Jen grew up, across the road from where we now live. I was a bit nostalgic for some reason this afternoon and so it seemed important to me to photograph that house. We were married to the left of the house, in the back yard under a huge silver maple tree during the remnants of a hurricane, Doria I think it was called. Although the timing doesn't seem right, it makes a great story.
The next one I struggled a bit with the balance between the sky and the water. The water was so beautiful, as only water can be, but the sun bouncing off the bottom of the clouds also fascinated me, so rather than look at an asymmetrical balance of sky and water I split the difference and held the land mass in the middle. The beauty of the light on both subjects caused me to share their importance as subjects of the shot.
