Lee Ann and Kyle’s Saint Mike’s Wedding

October 25th in Vermont can be beautifully balmy with rich fall foliage … or it can be snowing. The week leading up to Lee Ann and Kyle’s wedding we were holding our breath. It was an entire week of cold and wet.
And then Saturday dawned with … well, not sunshine, but it was dry! And it wasn’t balmy, but it was warm enough for flip flops for this North Country Photographer. After a week of holding our breath and dreaming of bright umbrellas and puddle reflections, we found ourselves so very thankful for thick cloud cover that held in its rain.

And rain, clouds, snow, or sun – these two would not have worried. Lee Ann and Kyle such an amazing team who are clearly best friends and now also husband and wife! We had so much fun capturing these two as they prepared for their big day, exchanged vows, and celebrated with family and friends.

Karin and Connie’s Wedding

Vermont and the Adirondacks attracts destination weddings. And we’re the lucky ones who get to live in the area all the time!
Karin and Connie fell in love with Woodstock, VT and were thankful to find Farmhouse Inn.

Because Karin and Connie’s home base is in Texas, we didn’t connect in person until the week of their wedding (for their e-shoot, also included in this slideshow!). Within minutes it was clear that this would be a wedding that would have us laughing the whole night. It was also clear that these women were in awe of trees with any size – something apparently lacking in Texas.

These two have been together for 22years and Karin has joked all along that she wasn’t sure she was ready to commit. Finally finally a wedding was planned. It would be small, just a few guests as travel to Vermont would be required. To Karin and Connie’s surprise, more and more friends and family members asked if they could also come for this once-in-a-lifetime event. The couple was humbled by the time and expense their wedding guests invested in the opportunity to celebrate Karin and Connie’s relationship.

So with that backdrop, the wedding was incredible. Approximately 30 amazing, gifted, friendly, outgoing, hilarious friends and family members arrived for a beautiful farm wedding. The details were spectacular, the weather perfect, and the couple fabulous. We were so thrilled to document this wedding.

Thank you so much, Karin and Connie – and the biggest of congratulations!

Ashley and Heath’s Wedding

Wow wow wow! The love and support surrounding Ashley and Heath on their wedding day would bring you to tears. I know this, because I was sniffling behind my camera. Despite a drizzly cold day, family and friends gathered and made it clear how much they love these two – whether clapping and cheering at the church, welcoming Ashley and Heath into the reception, or while the couple had their first dance. And speaking of first dance! – Awesome. Seriously. Best.First.Dance.
We were so honored to document this magical wedding day and can’t wait to share this slideshow!!

Beth and Kyle’s Wedding

Beth and Kyle’s surprisingly hot end-of-September wedding was full of love and tradition. Kyle’s brother and best man talked about how he prayed for a brother and sister (his prayers were answered – at the same time with brother/sister twins). He prayed for his brother to be like his mom, his sister, himself, and his dad. And Kyle has a little bit of each of his family members in him. And then his best man prayed for Kyle to be complete – and Beth completes him. This was so sweetly shared and so clearly shown throughout the day – the look Kyle gave just to Beth, or the confidence Beth had that Kyle would be there when she turned to look … We’re so happy for these two and honored to have captured their day.

We’re so excited to share Kyle and Beth’s slideshow!

Kyla and Andy’s Wedding

Kyla and Andy (“Ky” & “Remy”!) were beautifully wed on September 20th at the Red Barn in South Berwick, Maine, after taking a “first look” beforehand in the lovely gardens of the nearby Hamilton House. It was an incredible day full of smiles, hugs, laughs, and love!

Danielle and John’s Wedding

Surrounded by an amazing group of friends and family, in a steamy steamy hot  Faith United Methodist Church in South Burlington, VT – Danielle and John promised to love and support each other through life.
These two initially asked for no photography during the ceremony. They explained that they didn’t want to be distracted by flashes. After explaining that we are ninja photographers during wedding ceremonies and never use flash (it helps us keep our invisible status), they agreed to having their ceremony captured. And we’re so glad they did! The shared smiles, the secrets whispered, the vows shared … all captured authentically is priceless.

So excited to be sharing this slideshow!!

Baby Evan and His Bow Tie

Nothing like a newborn baby to snuggle in the cold winter months. Even better if the newborn baby’s momma is down-to-earth and as relaxed as any first time mom can be. Evan was wide-eyed for much of our shoot -huge blue eyes!

I loved hearing the story of Evan’s birth as every birth is interesting. And then we talked about this and that, parenting, world problems, and family dynamics. I cover these discussion topics over and over with clients and I love hearing different perspectives. Shoots end up being part shoot-part therapy with the result being some incredible images of a beautiful new person and a beautiful new friendship just begun.

To up the adorable ante, Kaylee made sure to have the perfect bow-tie on hand! It was a little tricky getting it on and off, but oh.so.worth it, right Evan?
