Waterfront Park, Burlington VT

What a great week we had. It seemed like the summer had returned for a few days. There was even plenty of foliage left on the ground and on some of the trees. We took full advantage of it for couple of quick Family Lifestyle sessions with Hannah, Chris, Knightly, Kanon, Molly, Tom and Jackie.



Sharp Park, Milton VT

What a gorgeous day to end the 2015 Wedding Season. It was cold and the saw brief flurries of snow but it was all worth it. The foliage was at it’s peak, and the day was clear and sunny. John and Jacqueline got married at Sharp Park in Milton. Despite the cold they decided to stick with the original plan and get married outside. It was a great decision and it paid of in the many gorgeous images. After the ceremony we piled up in a truck and climber the Sharp Hill for the breathtaking view of the valley. Jacqueline and John soldiered on through the cold and we got it all done. Then it was time to warm up in the barn and have some amazing thanksgiving food and cupcakes for desert.

Thanks John and Jacqueline. Congratulations!


St. Isidore, Montgomery VT

Jay Peak, Jay VT

Undisputed Band, New Jersey

William and Lindsey tied the knot Friday night at St. Isidore. Lindsey rolled in an 50’s Chrysler and although it was pouring I still managed to get a great shot of the newlyweds with the car. Afterwards was the welcome event at Jay where we all enjoyed delicious barbecue from Alice’s Table Restaurant and great cocktails.

Fortunately for all of us the weather was much better Saturday. Although it was a little chilly the skies were blue and most importantly the rain was gone. Fall foliage was in full peak at Jay and it was gorgeous. After taking care of all the formal portraits we did a short tour of the grounds in search of the best backgrounds.

The reception was crazy and fun. Undisputed, a great band came all the way from New Jersey and they kept everyone dancing and the dance floor was packed until the end.

Thanks to Lindsey and William for letting me document their amazing weekend. Congratulations!


Catamount Country Club, Burlington VT

It was another gorgeous early fall day and it was time for my second visit to the Catamount Country Club this season, this time for Nick and Jonathan’s Wedding. I love shooting there. The venue is great with plenty of opportunities and the staff is super accommodating and relaxed.

The rings were walked down the aisle by Jackson, the couples doggy. He wore his tux and top hat like a boss. After Nick and Jonathan made it official we jumped in the golf carts for a quick tour of the course. Although it was quite early for the foliage change there were a few spots around the course that had plenty of fall color. It made for great a background for some portraits that were less formal and a lot of fun. It was another wild party with great food, a lot of beer, crazy fun dancing, cake and a candy bar.

Thank you Nick and Jonathan for having me document your gorgeous day.




Jay Peak Resort, Jay VT

It was another great Vermont day with clear blue skies, a breeze and plenty of sunshine. After Hannah and Gordon said I do and sealed with a kiss in the Jay Barn all the guests toasted with Champaign at the tram base. We hurried up to the top for some stunning portraits of the couple. By the time we made it down the cocktail hour was in full swing. At sunset Hannah and Gordon’s Rabi performed a traditional Jewish marriage ceremony under a chuppah. It is a beautiful tradition that has been performed for thousands of years and it’s a lot of fun to photograph. With all the formalities done it was time for the party. And it was wild. The horah was my favorite part and made for some great shots. We topped off the night with a great sparkler send-off.

Thanks to Hannah and Gordon for choosing me to be a part of their big day. Congratulations!

Kevin and Molly will say I do almost an year from now so it was the perfect time to get their Engagement Session done. They showed me some amazing overlook spots on Okemo mountain that gave us amazing backdrops. It was a clear early fall day and you could see for miles and miles away. We got to enjoy all the beauty our great state provides us with and got some great photos. We were even joined by their pup Hazel.

The Old Round Church, Richmond VT

The Sunset Ballroom, Burlington VT

Et Cetera Event Company, Burlington VT

The Summer is slowly coming to an end and the leaves are starting to turn. Saturday was yet another gorgeous day, perfect for a Vermont Wedding at The Old Round Church in Richmond. I end up there at least a few times every season and it’s a favorite of mine. We set up a first look in front of the church that made for some great shots and Christina and Kienan were joined by their little bundle of joy. We used the church grounds for some family portraits and some fun shots of the bridal party. The party was in the Sunset Ballroom, we all enjoyed the great views from the top and we caught a great sunset that made for some beautiful some shots.



The Whitcomb House, Essex VT

This Saturday was my second Wedding in a row at The Whitcomb House and we lucked out on the weather again. It was a perfect early fall day, comfortably warm, slightly cloudy with a nice breeze. Brandy and Kenny said I do and sealed it with a kiss surrounded by their family and friends. After a quick and fun portrait session we joined the guests at the barn for the party. There was a great homemade meal waiting for use and a lot of pie. The night continued with plenty of dancing and all around good times.

Congratulations Brandy and Kenny!




Shelburne Museum, Shelburne VT

Sunday I toured the Shelburne Museum with Allyssa and Brian for their Engagement Session. The museum had tons of photo opportunities and we used quite a few of them. We visited the beautiful gardens, the apple orchard, the old steam ship and of course the jail! It was quite hot but we stayed hydrated through the 90 degree heat to get some great images.

Thanks to Allyssa and Brian for putting up with the heat and soldiering on!


The Whitcomb House, Essex Junction VT

It was yet another gorgeous Summer day in Vermont and it was perfect for Hannah and Mike’s Wedding at The Whitcomb House in Essex. I shot their Engagement Photos last year (you can check them out by clicking here) and it was a pleasure to work with them again. The Whitcomb Barn is huge, beautifully decorated and it let plenty of natural light in that made for great looking images. The guests enjoyed a taco bar, lots of beer and plenty of dancing. The night was topped off by am amazing fireworks display.

Congratulations Hannah and Mike!
