I loved exploring Shelburne and Shelburne Farms with Scott & Sarah during their VT fall engagement photos. Sarah grew up in the area so had some fun ideas for new spots and then we re-visited some old favorites on the farm. Their dog Marley LOVED chasing sticks and sprinting along the beach and provided some comedy and laughs. They are getting married next summer at Tourterelle in New Haven and I can’t wait – they are so easy to be around and so engaging it will be great to celebrate with them. Enjoy the photos!
I had the honor of photographing Ben & Danielle’s Intimate Vermont wedding earlier this month. They are planning a larger wedding later this fall but wanted to make it official in front of their immediate family and a close friend who married them. It was a drizzly day although we managed to sneak out for some photos between showers. I love photographing different types of events and this one was no different – a fun change from more regular size weddings! Congratulations to both of you – it’s clear from being around you BenDanielle (as Danielle’s niece calls them) are a perfect match. Enjoy the photos!
I met up with this sweet family last week on Shelburne Farms for some pictures with their daughter Lakey. Lakey had just taken her first steps a few days before but was quickly gaining confidence – it’s amazing how fast kids move from one skill to the next. We had fun exploring and wandering around – enjoy the photos!
On October 2, I met Meredith and AJ for their engagement session at Shelburne Farms in Shelburne and Oakledge Park in Burlington, VT. Both of these locations were really special to this wonderful couple, and I was so honored to help them make more memories here.
We went to Oakledge Park first. This is the place they walk to nightly from their house. I had never been, so it was fun to explore it with them. We discovered this awesome treehouse as we were getting ready to head to the farm.
Next, we went to Shelburne Farms, where Meredith & AJ got engaged. AJ got thwarted in his attempts to propose a few times but eventually got Meredith to the Inn at the farm where he proposed in the garden. He carried the ring in his pocket, and we both agreed that someone would make millions if they made a flat box to safely carry the ring.
Meredith and AJ are just such a fun, warm couple that are so easy to be around. They met while they were students at Connecticut College and have been together ever since! Meredith is studying to be a nurse practitioner and hoping to specialize in pediatrics (in fact, she is interning at Norah’s pediatrician!) so we had fun talking about babies and Norah and different stages.
They are getting married at the Omni Hotel on Mount Washington next year on August 15. Meredith’s beloved deceased grandfather’s birthday was 8/14/1914, so they chose their wedding date to mirror that: 8/15/15! I can’t wait to see them again on their special day!
