Featured on Rustic Wedding Chic!

I realized that I never shared this fun feature submission from Heather & John’s Middlebury Vermont Outdoor wedding – it was a stunner! John’s family home provided the perfect backdrop to an elegantly rustic celebration!

It’s always fun to share my completed holiday card which is made up of at least one image from each shoot – it was a full year! I hope everyone has a wonderful day spent with family and friends and eating lots of good food!

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.

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.

New Instagram Account

Orchard-Cove-Instagram

I’ve had a personal Instagram account for a few years now but have recently been convinced that maybe it would be a good idea to create a business one. Enter Orchard Cove Photography (my personal one is now amanda.herzberger). I love using this app – following fellow business owners on my business page and lots of quilting inspiration on my personal account. If you’re not familiar with the app go check it out – it’s such a fun way to stay connected with people and to me feels a bit more personal than Facebook (even though they own it!). And look to your right and check out my handy new Instagram grid – pretty fancy!

Featured in The Knot Outdoor Weddings Book

Books take so long in production that it’s always a surprise when they finally arrive – I had completely forgotten about this one! Jackie & Jono’s Basin Harbor club wedding is a standout in my many years of weddings. Words that come to mind are beautiful, fun, cold, joyful, muddy, festive and happy. Their beautiful fall wedding site overlooking the harbor at Basin Harbor was so picturesque and I love how it was displayed as a two page spread. One of the most memorably moments was when a double rainbow appeared over the lake right as Jackie came down the aisle.
