Real Vermont Weddings & MORE!

Holding Hands

This is a posed image taken at St. Paul's Cathedral in Burlington, Vermont. The bride and groom are posed at the altar holding hands. A flash unit behind them is triggered by remote control. The camera was on a tripod to allow for a longer exposure, which helped brighten up the image. This final image was digitally enhanced to help the colors of the church pop. Fuji S3 camera and Nikon 24mm lens. Remote flash....

Helping The Bride

This is a classic image showing a perfect moment of a wedding day. Our bride looks down at her gown as her attendants spread around her in perfect symmetry. The image was captured using natural light from behind the bride. The natural light helps sculpt the subjects with dramatic effect. Nikon D70 camera and Nikon 24mm lens....

By My Side

Our bride and groom are walking back towards their reception. The image was taken at the Skinner Barn in Waitsfield, Vermont. We had just completed a quick series of posed photos in a nearby field. I ran ahead so I could get some photos of them walking back. I took both color and infrared images.  The color images were nice, but the infrared had a dramatic quality. Infrared tends to turn foliage a bright white that has a dream like feel. Like this image, I often do infrared...

Church Light

This image was taken from the balcony of Saint Pius the Tenth church in Essex Jct, Vermont. A camera modified to take only infrared images was used. Infrared cameras see heat rather than visible light. Sometimes the effect is very interesting. In this photo it helped brighten up a dark church. A bit of natural grain, that is common with infrared photos, and black and white printing help add to the effect. Over all the photo has more depth and interest than similar images taken at the same...

Brides Bouquet

This is an image of a bride's bouquet that was taken after her wedding as she stood in her receiving line. She was holding the flowers in one hand, and I was taking close-ups using a telephoto lens. I intentionally photographed the flowers using a shallow focus so that the background would go very soft. The final print was digitally enhanced. I have been doing this type of hand tinted image for almost 20 years. In the old days it was done with oils and inks directly on...

Bubbles

What a fun photo! Wendy captured this photo after a ceremony outside of White Memorial Chapel at Norwich University in Northfield, Vermont. I was doing images of the bride and groom and missed the moment. Wendy was wandering around doing candids as the crowd mingled outside the church. The flower girl and ring bearer were memorized by the constant stream of bubbles that were floating around. The flower girl reached up to touch a bubble, and the ring bearer is riveted. A bit of motion blur in the...
