“If you want to keep your memories. You first have to live them.” -Bob Dylan

Three whole days of Food Network’s 2011 Wine & Food Festival = three whole days of awesome craziness inside our photo booth. We lost our voices and can’t feel the bottom half of our bodies. But, it was all worth it. Held at Pier 57 in New York City, the festival had culinary demonstrations with celebrity chefs, wine and drinks from the Southern Wine & Spirits, and tastings by NYC’s top restaurants and chefs. Bobby Flay, Anthony Bourdain, Masaharu Morimoto, and Andrew Zimmern were among the list of chefs to showcase their skills at the event. It was an amazing culinary experience we will never forget. For us, the best part of it all was mingling with the attendees and seeing their first reaction to their photos—gasping, shouting, laughing, and cheering. One couple told us we had captured the best photo they’ve ever taken together. And that was BEFORE they started drinking! That made our day.
