UVM Alumni House Wedding Shoot

I had the great pleasure of participating in a styled shoot earlier this month at the newly opened UVM Alumni House, which is now accepting wedding bookings. There was a great team of vendors that came onboard to make the shoot happen :: Jerica from Et Cetera Events, Emily from Vermont Tent, Lindsey from Farmhouse Group Events, Alison from Floral Artistry, Jennifer from Jennifer Perellie Makeup, and Denise from Simplicity Salon.

The building itself is historic and was a frat house for many years- the renovations they’ve done have really brought it back to life and they built on a whole new event space that is gorgeous. The historic details throughout the house are just amazing and I said to a few people that it’s the one venue I’ve been to that if rained on a wedding day I’d almost be excited because we would get to fully take advantage of all the beautiful spots inside!

The dress and shoe shots show off two of these details – That trim! Those windows!

The light in this room was insane – it was such a spectacular autumn day and the light was just so warm and flattering.

These two are friends but had great chemistry and we all kept each other laughing.

I loved the details on this bank of windows and the light filtering through.

I don’t do too much food photography typically but it was fun to work with Lindsey from Farmhouse Group Events who really has a beautiful eye for styling and design.

Vermont Fall Family Photos

Recognize former wedding couple Ross & Annie? Now they have four beautiful children including little Teddy their caboose who is just 2 months old. Norah goes to school with their daughter and was bummer that she was not home when they stopped by for photos – somehow I don’t think her presence would have been very helpful! This family is so much fun and the kiddos kept me on my toes trying to keep all four of them engaged. Enjoy!

Water Island Vacation

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you are all enjoying beautiful meals with loved ones close. We are going way back to February today when we took a heavenly family vacation to Water Island in the USVI – it’s right next to St. Thomas but very few people have heard of it. We rented a house with my best friend Sarah and her family and had a BLAST. Take me back it was beautiful and so fun for Norah and her bestie Emily to have quality time together. We haven’t figured out if we’ll be able to go back this spring with a little one arriving in February but I hope so – it was so rejuvenating and relaxing especially before the incredibly stressful weeks that came after it – balm for the soul. Enjoy the glimpse of warmth!

Digital Flushmount Leather Album

I shipped these albums off to Michelle & Chris last year but never shared them. The main wedding album is a 10×10 Digital Flushmount album with a navy cover and the two matching parent albums are 8×8 – a nice suite of albums! They chose to get their names and wedding date embossed on the front – it looked snappy!

Tunxis Family Photos

I last photographed this extended family a few years ago before the littlest Brother (Norah’s age and buddy) was even born – time for an update! Busy boys were a little less than interested in posing for photos so we turned to bicycle racing which got them engaged and smiling!
