Who has the best clients? That’s right: we do. Kristin + Matt are the kind of couple who we want to take home and keep forever (did we just make things weird?), but we’ll settle for spending some very quality time together. What an incredible wedding day! From the sparkling morning sunshine to the tiny sprinkle of rain at dinner (which validated the “tent or no tent” decision), this February wedding at Villa Woodbine in…

Amy + Robert really and truly lucked out with their fall weather! Always unpredictable, Vermont delivered a quintessential autumn day, with crisp blue skies, a blaze of colorful foliage, and blustery winds (the kind that send your veil flying). Their entire day was at the Vermont National Country Club, which overlooks rolling greens with beautiful mountains at the horizon; a wraparound porch and soaring ceilings inside made for an excellent party location, and the side…

Sometimes there are days where everything just feels right! The weather is lovely. The people are kind. The ceremony is touching. The location is perfect. Kelsey + Brendan’s fall wedding at the Inn at Weathersfield was one of those days, and I’m so glad they asked me to join them. Picking favorites from a day like this feels impossible; so many hearty laughs, beautiful settings, perfect details. Where can I even begin? It’s hard to…

Brooke + Corey chose the lovely Inn at Manchester (tucked just off the main road through the center of Manchester, Vermont) for their destination wedding celebration, bringing family and loved ones with them from along the east coast. A bit of a drizzly day kept the ceremony under the barn’s spacious covered patio, but it didn’t stop the party! The skies cleared enough for us to wander the property for some portraits before enjoying dinner…

It’s amazing to see a meticulous plan come together! Megan + Erik’s Vermont wedding unfolded seamlessly on a picture-perfect fall day. While many of our clients escape the confines of New York City in favor of the Green Mountain State for their celebration weekend, these two have their own retreat nestled in the nearby hills. This allowed Megan to get ready at their home with friends and family, setting the tone for a day that…

We first met up with Nina + AJ at the base of Mount Mansfield just before their engagement session. The adventurous spirit that brought us to the top of a 4000′ Vermont peak on that sunny June afternoon was present throughout their entire wedding day. (Of course having Hildene as the background for their Vermont wedding doesn’t hurt!) Nina began her day at the nearby Hill Farm Inn while AJ got ready with family and…

We joined Caroline and Josh in Lake Placid for a weekend full of festivities in late September, and what a celebration it was! An impeccably planned wedding unfolded perfectly; even the weather went according to plan. This was a destination wedding for nearly everyone, and the crisp clean Adirondack air greeted guests who were getting out of the city for a few days to enjoy a BBQ-themed rehearsal dinner, the most intense game of Pictionary…

Hayley + Nick’s beautiful wedding may have had a slightly drizzly start, but the warmth and affection from the people they surrounded themselves with kept smiles on everyone’s faces. We met Haley over a year ago around the corner from their wedding venue… while photographing a different wedding! Manchester, Vermont is a frequent destination for couples coming up from the New York City area, but Hayley and Nick are effectively locals, having a family home…

We’re lucky when it comes to our clients. Really, really lucky. We work with a lot of cool people, a lot of friendly people, and a lot of creative people; sometimes days are wild, sometimes days are beautiful, and sometimes days are calm. Once in a while we have a wedding day where all of these things are combined into a magical mixture, and while those days make our faces hurt from grinning (and we…

Weddings in Vermont sometimes have a special feeling, and Carrie + Will’s was a perfect example. That special feeling is one of relaxation, of joy, of contentment. When the day is simple and the timeline is smooth, and your loved ones can embrace, and laugh, and dance, and enjoy themselves. Mountain Meadows Lodge in Killington, Vermont is a down-to-earth bed and breakfast that makes this feel easy! We loved spending the day with these two…

Who had fun at Claire + Jamis’ wedding? We’ll take a wild guess and say EVERYONE. We certainly did! From the gorgeous setting in scenic Manchester, Vermont to the giant bonfire to close the evening, this wedding was borderline epic from start to finish. While the spring greenery and rolling hills certainly make for lovely images, our very favorite thing was these two and their striking love for each other. Their genuine joy and excitement…

Lauren and Will’s wedding at the Inn at Manchester, a delightful family-owned venue in beautiful Manchester, Vermont, was the perfect way to begin our wedding season up north. Rainy? Sure, but we all saw that coming. Rain is always a possibility for spring weddings, but the love and excitement of their day couldn’t be dampened. Working with these two hardly felt like work; their easygoing attitudes and the clear support and joy from their friends…

It’s not very often that we begin conversations with future clients like this: “You know, you guys should just elope. Go somewhere awesome. Keep it tiny. Make it yours.” Wait, that sounds weird. Let’s back up. When we first started exploring the idea of expanding to Vermont for the summer/fall wedding season we met fellow photographer Paul Reynolds through Facebook, and he blew us away with his friendly and welcoming nature. (When we later met…

When we first met Tara and Kevin at their engagement session last year, we fell in love with both of them. Tara won us over with her genuine sweetness, while Kevin cracked us up like no other client ever has. We figured we would laugh on their wedding day too, but we had no idea how good things would get. More on that in a minute. Weddings at the Hillsboro Club in Hillsboro Beach, a…

From the first moment we spoke with them, Carly and Clay let us know that their vision for their wedding day was centered around family, friends, and fun. The reality of the day matched their vision perfectly, as all three of those things were on full display the entire day. Carly and Clay grew up in South Florida but currently live in the Washington D.C. area, making this both a destination wedding and a return…

Kate + Matt’s beautiful wedding day took place at the Jackson Gore Inn, a property within Okemo Mountain’s vast holdings. The Inn proved to be the perfect place for both bride and groom to get ready in separate suites, with the ceremony a quick golf cart ride away at the Toll Gate Garden, a new ceremony site that is so perfectly suited to a sweet outdoor ceremony that we’re surprised it wasn’t used sooner. Overlooking lovely…

From the moment we met Molly and Jess we knew we were a good fit. From the cats in their sweet country home to the way they made us (and each other!) laugh, to our meet up in the local Norwich Inn pub for hot pretzels and a drink, our relationship felt like one with old friends, not just new clients. We were excited to hear about their close family connections, particularly with their young daughter…

How do we begin to say how much we love working at Hildene? It’s a place that seems untouched by the passage of time, and lets you have a truly old-world feel at a facility with modern conveniences. Working with Nicole (the stellar wedding coordinator on-site) is an added bonus; she cares deeply for all of her wedding clients, and you can really see how much she puts into these events! Many couples choose to…

You may remember Melissa + Ian’s engagement session from last summer; it was photographed at the same location as their wedding, which was a great way to prep for what we all wanted to do for wedding day portraits! Weddings at Aloha Camp are slightly less common than nearby Camp Ohana, which overlooks Lake Fairlee, but given Melissa’s personal and family connections to Aloha it was the obvious choice for such an important day in…

Sometimes wedding clients find us in straightforward ways, and sometimes things wind up lining up in slightly more complex patterns. Jessica found us because she also went to college at the Savannah College of Art and Design, where Em graduated over ten years ago with a BFA in photography. Adding to that connection, this couple planned their wedding in a lovely part of South Carolina, just a tiny detour off of our planned route north…

Nicole + Mike’s wedding at the Seagate Country Club in Delray Beach, Florida was a day full of smiles and laughs, with sparkling Floridian sunshine making the day glitter and shine. Nicole got ready with her bridesmaids and family at the Seagate Hotel just a few miles away in downtown Delray Beach; Mike got ready with his guys on site at the Seagate Country Club, where they have plenty of space and a full bar…

Little Palm Island is one of those rare places that feels like a dream. Can an island really feel this secluded when it’s so easily accessible from the mainland? Can one really feel so pampered and relaxed in such a small place? (You might think: Is it actually this quiet or is my hearing going?) Joining this couple for their intimate and loving elopement on Little Palm Island is one of the highlights of our…

Kaitlyn + Tyler’s wedding at the Hilton Singer Island started out as a hot, beautiful Florida day and the perfection throughout their event never stopped. Working under the expert guidance of Aviva from Kiss the Planner, we started the day in the getting ready spaces at the Hilton, zipped over to a local church for the ceremony, and returned to the beachfront property with plenty of time for tons of group portraits and some fun in…

One of our favorite South Florida wedding venues is the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens. The unique surroundings, the opportunity for varied and natural portraits, and the modern, outdoor ceremony and reception locations are perfectly suited for our style of photography. Jackie + Sean chose to have their wedding ceremony and celebration at the Morikami after getting ready at Jackie’s childhood home and a nearby hotel. The day started off threatening and rainy, with sudden…

This lovely wedding at Highland Manor, in Apopka, Florida, was blessed with idyllic weather and a combination of emotional family members, an excited couple, and a lovely location. Highland Manor is perfectly situated for a wedding that can take place at one location, with tastefully decorated getting ready spaces for both bride and groom, an updated ballroom with modern catering capabilities, a beautiful wooden bar for cocktail hour, and several lovely outdoor ceremony sites. Tara…

Spending time with Lindsay + Deche is like a breath of fresh air. Their love for each other is palpable, and their care and affection for the people around them– from their closest loved ones down to the service staff at their wedding venue– is kind and genuine. They laugh from the tips of their toes, crinkling their eyes and grinning for the whole world to see. Spending a day with them feels like we’re all…

Morgan + Billy’s North Palm Beach wedding was held at the Lost Tree Club, a beautiful and isolated private community just steps from the ocean and the intracoastal waterway. The day began at a private home nearby where Morgan completed her preparations surrounded by her loving friends and family, and moved swiftly to their first look by the Lost Tree Beach Club, held during a few moments of mostly open skies before the heavier rains…

A hot summer wedding in the Keys? Jenna + PJ managed to pull it off with elegance, keeping their guests cool with an indoor ceremony and reception at the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo… while spending a bit of time with a cherry classic car outside for portraits. We were so happy to bear witness and document the range of emotions that flooded the entire day; from joyous laughter during the ceremony to family tears during…

As we’ve surely mentioned before, becoming friends with our clients is our normal routine. Not only does it make the wedding day more fun, it tends to make the images feel more intimate and connected when we’re already close with the people in them. Occasionally we’ll connect with a couple more strongly than we usually do, which is one of the best feelings in the world; this is how we feel about Sarah + Todd.…

We’ve been meaning to post this wonderful wedding for a while, but travel and our shooting schedule kept getting in the way! After the momentous news about the Supreme Court’s ruling on marriage equality last month, we got an excited email from Lori + Sara encouraging us to post images from their wedding. Thanks for the prodding! We’re so happy for you and for everyone!  –Em + Steve Working with Lori + Sara on their wedding…
