Just over a year ago Jeannie and Matt held their wedding ceremony and reception at the Old Sturbridge Village in Massachusetts. With their love of history it was a perfect setting, and although it was a brutally cold night outside, the warmth from the fires and the love from their family and friends kept the party going late into the night. Here are a few shots from their special day.
I had a fantastic session recently with Jill and Mac for their engagement shoot. I was exhausted from the previous night’s wedding, but once we started shooting in the beautiful fall afternoon light, and their obvious chemistry for each other, I got my second wind and we got some great shots for their wedding guestbook album. I’m really looking forward to their wedding next year and this session officially kicks off the 2016 season!
Whenever I have the opportunity, I really like to attend the rehearsal for a wedding. Not only is it a great way to familiarize with the venue, but it’s a great way for me to meet and get to know the family and wedding party a little before the actual wedding. I’ve shot several weddings at The Old First Church in Bennington, Vermont (arguably one of the most beautiful in the state, not to mention one of the oldest), but I still take rehearsal shots to help me get things dialed in and get focused for the next day. Here are the unfiltered pics taken at Erin and Kris’ wedding last fall. We had a fantastic time from start to finish and I was honored that they asked me to document their special day.

Shooting the cake is on every wedding photographer’s checklist. It’s always fun to see the amazing creativity involved with this traditional nuptial confection. These are a few of my favorites. And I don’t think I was able to taste a single one of these come to think of it. By the time the cake is cut, dancing is in full swing and I’m usually shooting the dance floor by then. Pour a cup of coffee and enjoy…
Surrounded by love, sunflowers, and a beautiful 150-year-old Vermont country church/school setting amongst fields and crops, this was literally the last (and possibly sweetest) image on my camera from yesterday’s shoot of a wonderful family’s 50th wedding anniversary and family reunion with all the children and grandchildren.
I often find myself saying “I love my job” to people, because I really do enjoy and am often honored and humbled by being entrusted to capture special moments in peoples lives—knowing that they will look at those photos for the rest of their lives.
The BBQ steaks with reduction sauce, chicken, and shrimp with all the fresh salads was terrific and would make any professional caterer proud, and to top it off were the cupcakes—and yes, I did get to have one of the chocolate Ganache frosted cupcakes for the ride home. I love my job.
When Jennifer and Brad asked me to shoot their wedding atop Mt. Greylock at Bascom Lodge, I was psyched. Of all the venues I shoot at, being on top of a mountain has a very special feel to it, and Mt. Greylock has spectacular views in all directions, and a cozy lodge feel to it that is unique. These are just a few of the “Sneak Peek” photos I sent to them as I was editing. Congrats Jennifer and Brad!
I’m finishing up design and printing of the albums from last year’s weddings. I use AsukaBook, and they provide a free digital album for a year. Kasey ordered an extra book for her mom for Mother’s day, and Kevin gave his mom a 16 x 24 canvas wrap. I just love this album from start to finish, and it’s so much fun reliving the day—check it out: Kasey and Kevin’s album
