Wedding Party

The image below is an album page spread from Erin and Aaron's wedding album. They were married at Shelburne Farms. Prior to the wedding itself, the entire wedding party was goofing around the pool table, and I suggested a group photo. I had everyone surround the pool table. I used a Fish-eye lens to get the entire group in the image. I tried a few with flash, but that ruined the mood that I was looking for. I placed the camera on the pool table and angled it...

Fun Fun Fun

Weddings should be fun! Maybe during the ceremony is not the right time, but once at the reception, lets party. A good DJ or band can help "get this party started". Plus it makes for great photos! A fun photographer can suggest unique and innovative poses. Picking up the bride or groom is always a crowd favorite. As is the jump photo pictured below. Maybe you do the chicken dance, or form a wedding train at the reception. Consider hiring a photo booth. Maybe your dog will be...

Save 20% on your Vermont wedding!

I have always said that I wished more people would get married on Thursdays. Many wedding vendors offer great discounts for non-Saturday weddings. Most likely you can save about 20% or more. I would guess that 90% of the weddings that we do are on a Saturday, and most of those are during the summer. Even though we can do up to 5 weddings on a day, we are often times all booked on busy Saturday dates. So maybe you should plan your wedding for a Thursday, or...
