Omni New Hampshire Rehearsal Dinner

I realized recently that somehow I never blogged Meredith & AJ’s rehearsal dinner – I think I was too excited to share the wedding photos! I love photographing rehearsal dinners because it allows me the opportunity to identify the VIPs and also get to know everyone. Then by the wedding day people have forgotten I’m there and can relax and I can get great pictures of them ignoring me and enjoying themselves! AJ’s parents hosted a beautiful dinner at the golf clubhouse at The Omni – the weather was perfect and it was a really special evening full of touching toasts and yummy food! Enjoy the photos!

Board Game Themed Wedding :: Beth & Dan

Beth & Dan – December 12, 2015
Venue :: The Ponds at Bolton Valley
Florist :: Heidi Bormann
Dress :: Christine’s Bridal

Beth and Dan didn’t quite get the winter wedding they may have been picturing with temps rising almost to the 50s but it provided a great opportunity to be outside enjoying the beautiful scenery at The Ponds. Their wedding was a board game themed brunch wedding – pretty awesome when you aren’t so much the dancing type. Delicious food and fun times spent with family and friends.

Beth and her ladies (& James!) got ready in the suite at the Ponds

VT Fall Family Photos

I’ve been photographing this sweet family for five years and it’s always happy chaos. Gray and Parker this year were eager to show me their ninja moves so we wandered about exploring as they kicked and rolled and chopped all over the place. Georgia the dog provided comic relief by barking incessantly desperate for someone to throw her a stick. Despite this I was really happy with what we got and to add to the family photo archive they are amassing. Their Dad Jackson started Notabli which I LOVE using to document Norah in a more formal digital baby book way – if you have kids look into it immediately it’s fabulous (and the Grandparents love it!). Enjoy the photos.
