A Brick House Wedding in Shelburne, Vermont

Whenever a couple asks for wedding advice, I offer them one thought. Plan the wedding you want not the wedding this industry has told you you’re supposed to want. In the course of planning, you’ll be bombarded with lists that tell you the top 10 decor pieces you must have, the 25 must have photos, what your ceremony is meant to look like, how to structure your reception – it goes on and on. But at the end of the day, plan the wedding you want. There is no right or wrong, so long as at the end of the day, you’re married.

Enter Steph and Chris. When I first sat down to talk about their plans, they were already there. An intimate private ceremony at the Brick House at Shelburne Farms. A bigger reception the following evening at the Shelburne Museum surrounded by as many friends and family as they could pack into the space. No sit-down meal, instead a rolling cocktail reception leading into a killer dance party. It delivered in spades and it stands as one of the sweetest weddings we’ve had the chance to document in over six years of shooting.

So enjoy this recap including some beautiful views from the farm, old covered bridges, sunsets, dancing, and a truly wonderful couple. So excited to share this recap.

Rustic Elegance in New Hampshire

Up North, beyond Lake Winnipesaukee, sits a little slice of barn wedding heaven so perfect it feels like I invented it all in my head. Sweeping panoramic views, a beautiful ceremony spot, rolling hills – literally a photographer’s dream venue. But best of all, it had Alison and Dave who have been incredible to work with every step of the way. This wedding floored me and I’m excited to finally share a complete look back at Alison + Dave’s day.

Sunflowers and a Coppal House Farm Engagement

Earlier this summer I met up with Josh and Michelle for their Coppal House Farm engagement session. Such an unbelievable setting for a shoot and I’m so jazzed about how these came out. The day started clear, but after an hour or so a storm barreled in giving us some dramatic clouds and crazy light to work with. Can’t wait to do this again next summer!

Can you tell its late summer? The surest sign of wedding season for any photographer is the precipitous dropoff in blog posts… Fortunately, I have a few posts queued up and I’ll be sharing some of my favorite work from this busy summer over the next few weeks. First up, Colleen + Al’s downtown Salem engagement session from earlier this year. These two fantastic people will be tying the knot in November, closing out our fall wedding season. Can’t wait!
