Outdoor Portraits on the way….

It has been a long time coming, and I am happy to say that couples are coming out of hibernation and are ready for, well, almost anything! Weddings celebrations have been affected, but not portraits! I have done 5 engagement portrait shoots over the past few weeks, and have 2 more on Saturday. Will be trying out my new video camera. I decided to get a dedicated video camera, rather then try to use a camera that does stills and video. This way I will have a dedicated...

May 18th Wedding at Sleepy Hollow!

It has been 1 year since my wife Wendy and I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Emily and Zach. The wedding and reception took place at Sleepy Hollow in Starksboro, Vermont. The black flies were out in force, but that is what you get in Vermont during mud-season. No cake, cupcakes in every color! Seems like cupcakes are the new wedding tradition. Wendy and I have done 6 weddings at Sleepy Hollow to date! Always a great venue, and close to home, which is always...

June Is Engagement Portrait Time!

Looking for something fun and exciting to do? I am back in business, and booking engagement shoots for June and beyond! Everything will be on-location, and in mostly private areas. For $250 you get a 45 minute photo shoot with me, and you get to keep all of the images. I can even do a few fun videos for you if you like. I will plan everything. Locations include Lake Champlain and other great spots that I use near Burlington, Vermont. Best yet, book us for your Vermont...

Amelia and Tim – Mansfield Barn

A look back to the hottest day of the year, when Tim and Amelia got married at the Mansfield Barn located in Jericho, Vermont. Amelia got ready at her parents house, and Wendy and I met her there for getting ready images and some before the wedding formal photos. Then we did a quick stop to play with some horses, and we were off to the Mansfield Barn. The sun was lovely, but the heat was brutal. So we stayed in the shade as much as possible, drank...

Candid Wedding Moments In Black And White

They say out with the old in with the new. I say keep the new, and revisit the past for a fresh updated look. In the old days folks bought black and white film. Then color film took over, much the same way color took over our TV sets. Now we shoot digital. Everything is in color. But, not so fast. I select a handful of images from each wedding, to convert into black and white images. I typically look for images that have motion or emotion, hopefully...

Katlyn and Joshua – An Affair By The Lake Wedding

I hope you enjoy a peek into the wedding day of Katlyn and Joshua. They were married at An Affair By The Lake in Addison, Vermont. Jay was their photographer. As usual he hit it out of the park, and the photos are stunning. The images have such lovely lighting, mixed with a playful attitude! Shoot me an email or text and let me know how you like them! Cheers! ...

Julianne and Scott – Private Home

This couple got married at Scott's parents' house in Jericho, Vermont! They had a lovely property with an apple orchard, an old barn and lots of walking paths through the woods. The perfect Vermont flavor for this unique wedding! Their dog was part of the festivities. Rain slowed things down a bit, but in the end it was a wonderful day. The couple had planned lots of lawn games and a bouncy jousting area, but the rain kept most folks in the tent. However that did not stop...

Tori and Joshua – Barn at Boyden Farm Wedding

Time for a look back to last August, for the wedding of Tori and Joshua! They got married at the Barn At Boyden Farm on a beautiful sunny day. What a great spot for a wedding! It is located in Cambridge, Vermont, and has a beautiful view of the mountains and their very own cornfield, and of course that great barn! Not much shade there, so that was an issue, as full sun can be harsh. That is standard fair so easy to deal with. These two love birds get...

Katelyn and John – Inn at Grace Farm Wedding

A quick look at the Vermont wedding of Katelyn and John. They got married at the Inn at Grace Farm in Fairfax, Vermont. We had planned to do most of the photos before the wedding ceremony, but the rain kept us scrambling back indoors. A quick online check of the weather showed that the sun was on the way. So finally the wedding processional started just as the sun came out, but 30 minutes late. The wedding ceremony was beautiful and baby Julian looked on! Afterwards, I had to...

Nicole and Cody – Brookside Barn Wedding

Today I am showcasing the wedding photos of Nicole and Cody Russell. This was my first all PRIME wedding! I used only PRIME lenses, and left my zooms in the bag. I like PRIME lenses as they are much sharper then zoom lenses, focus faster and more silently, and also give me amazing soft backgrounds for my photos! When I photograph a wedding, I always reach for a PRIME lens first! Their wedding was at the Brookside Barn in Altona New York. It is a brand new facility that...

Jennifer and Jeet – Catamount Country Club Wedding

I just finished the wedding album design for Jenn and Jeet. They were married last summer at Catamount Country Club in Williston, Vermont. Jay was their photographer. I always know Jay will do amazing things, as he has done over 1,000 weddings in Vermont! His photos are always great, and clients love him! The perfect recipe for the perfect Vermont wedding! Once the final design is approved, I will send it to Italy for printing. ...

Bekah and Justin – Skinner Barn Wedding

A look back at the wedding of Bekah and Justin. They got married at the Skinner Barn in Waitsfield, Vermont last June. This a peek at the album that I designed for our newlyweds. My wife Wendy and I were the photographers. The weather was perfect that day! A bit cloudy, but that allowed for nice lighting, which is always great for outdoor wedding photos in Vermont! The rain held off until we did the very last series of outdoor photos in front of the barn. Another great...

Laura and Tom – Barn at Smugglers Notch

I just started designing wedding albums from our busy 2019 Vermont wedding season. First up is Laura and Tom! They got married at the Barn at Smugglers Notch in Jeffersonville, Vermont. It was still Spring, and our Vermont mud season was in full blast. But no black flies yet! I started with some getting ready photos, and some detail images. Next came a First Look, and then we jumped in my car and were off to some nearby photo sites I had picked out. It was a solo job,...

Malinda and Cris – Basin Harbor Wedding

I just finished designing a wedding album for Malinda and Cris. They were married at the wonderful Basin Harbor Club in Panton, Vermont. It is such an amazing and historic facility that dates back over 100 years. The views over Lake Champlain are spectacular, as are the gardens! No matter which way you look it is pure beautiful Vermont. It is certainly the perfect venue for any Vermont wedding! Once approved by the couple, I will ship the digital design to Italy for printing. The finished wedding album...

Barn at Smugglers Notch

We had a busy season this year at the Barn At Smugglers Notch, with a total of 8 weddings! It is such an amazing venue for any party, with wonderful unobstructed views of Mount Mansfield. Easily one of the best views for any wedding facility in Vermont, it helps make my job easy! Of course the brand new modern barn is a wonder as well. Located in Jeffersonville, Vermont. Here are a few select favorites from each wedding. Enjoy! ...

Golden Hour!

Shooting into the sun is never easy. But my lens shines again! If you like what you see, then let's go do some photos together! These were taken in Burlington, Vermont, but I often go to Charlotte for images as well. Is Urban more your thing? I know some great streets, alleyways, murals and more near Church Street in Burlington. There are still a few weeks to go before the leaves are gone. ...
