5 tips for better pictures in the snow!

Vermont is sure beautiful this time of year with all of the snow. Now is the time to break out the camera and get some awesome winter photos. Whether it is people or nature you like to photograph, here are a few tips: 1-Over exposure your photos. All the white snow can interfere with the camera metering properly.

Introducing the amazing Young Book from Italy!

Check out the amazing Graphistudio Young Book from Italy, the coolest wedding album that I have ever seen! This sample has the amazing Maple cover material, which has a very slick wood-like surface.

You can feel the texture of the ennoblement. Another example with a black box and white album is also shown below. There are 73 cover options to choose...

What are you having for your wedding dinner?

One of things that I like to do at every wedding is to get a photograph of the bride and grooms dinner plates. Before they start eating of course! So I carefully keep on an eye out for the dinners to arrive and swoop in before knife and fork are lifted. No, it is not the most important photo of the day, not even close. But it is part of the over all story, and a minor tidbit that would be forgotten otherwise. That is the job of...

Dream Wedding

Here are 3 album pages from Mike and Maria's wedding album. Our thanks to a gorgeous couple, and a stunning setting at the Alerin Barn in Saint Johnsbury, Vermont! -The first page has an infrared image in the background, with 2 close-ups overhead.
