Robyn & Keith were wed at Boyden Valley Farm on yet another gorgeous Vermont summer day. Robyn did her own flowers and chose a lovely plum color scheme for her wedding. We headed out into a nearby grassy field to do creative portraits later in the day. Overall it was very relaxed with a nice low-key vibe. Many thanks to second shooter Jess for helping out with great shots! Congratulations, Robyn and Keith!!
Last month we returned to the Mountain Top Inn in Chittenden, Vermont for Katie & Dan’s sunny, music-filled wedding. Many thanks to second shooter Isaac for pitching in some great shots. We had a really fun time shooting this one.. Congrats Katie & Dan!

Rusty and Karin were wed on an almost-stormy (but not quite!) day at the Red Clover Inn in June. They kept it small and cozy but imbued the day with adorable details in bright yellow. We loved the simple ceremony under a tree outdoors, the classic red barn, and the lemonade glasses which served as table place cards and the inspiration for our ring photos. The day as a whole was incredibly relaxed, which we always appreciate because the little things sometimes get lost in the craziness of a wedding schedule. Congratulations, Rusty and Karin!
Kristen and Kevin were wed on a beautiful, warm spring day last month at the West Monitor Barn in Richmond. We really enjoyed working with them – our favorite parts were doing the formals against the backdrop of the big red barn, and later into the reception when everyone was rocking out – not just on the dance floor, but all over the barn! What a fun day. Congratulations, Kristen and Kevin!
We love to capture moments – it defines much of what we do. But we also love taking the time to set up and light a really cool creative portrait on the wedding day. As you can imagine, this is pretty challenging. There’s so much going on during the wedding day that finding the time to steal the couple away, and come up with amazing lighting and composition in that time constraint, can be extremely difficult.
How can you make this easier? When planning out the schedule, make time for portraits (in addition to a half hour for formals). Anywhere from 20-40 minutes is perfect, even 10 if that’s all you can spare. We prefer the early or late evening hours for the best light. If you’ve seen any nice portrait spots around your venue, let us know! We’ll also scout for some great places before we begin shooting. Portraits are ultimately a collaboration between the subject (you) and the photographer, with both sides contributing to create something intensely personal and unique.
Here are some of our favorites from the past few months!
