Hard Cover Photo Albums

Curling up together with a beverage and a hard-bound book honoring your wedding is pretty spectacular. In a digital time period, I'm all about the tangible. All albums are linen bound, with your names engraved on the front with the date and location on the spine. The pages lay flat, so there's no warping when viewing the photographs.

Nicaragua Vacation at Rancho Santana

Damp ocean air, the smell of dried seaweed, rocks cooling quickly after sunset and the sound of the waves rolling in. It never gets old.

Bill & Vicki's New Years Eve Elopement

"Our wedding plans to elope from our home state of Maine were in place early in December. But where to go? Who should we invite? How will we capture the memories of our special day? There’s something about Vermont. The magnificent family vacations on Lake Champlain. The memories of working in Burlington. Lifelong friends and stories only they would understand. A winter wedding in Vermont on New Year’s Eve? The perfect plan." - Bill & Vicki

Molly & Alex's Autumn Champlain Islands Wedding

"Alex and I met in September so the fall has always been a special time of year for us.  This is what inspired us to choose a rustic fall themed summer camp wedding in The Champlain Islands.  The camp had little cottages located along Lake Champlain that the guests stayed in.  The leaves were just slightly starting to change color, however it was somehow 80 degrees. The ceremony took place overlooking the lake with mountains as the backdrop.  The dining tables were decorated with lanterns, pumpkins and leaves to give that autumn feel and the hall of the camp had a canopy of lights over the guests as they danced the night away.  We ended the evening with a bonfire on the beach.

Mount Mansfield is the highest point in Vermont at 4,395 ft and is one of three spots in the state where true alpine tundra survives from the Ice Ages. As you walk along the ridgeline, you are also walking on The Long Trail, the oldest long distance hiking trail in the US.

High School Sweethearts Amy & Winnie's Florence, MA Wedding

"We went to the same high school and had been around each other from being in the same graduating class and being involved in music extracurriculars like chorus. However, we officially started becoming friends after being in the same history class in junior year where we bonded and eventually started dating. What began as helping each other with history homework and passing notes in class, evolved into all night phone calls and hanging out after school until our parents picked us up from our respective extracurriculars! We also had some close mutual friends who connected us and sped the process along!" - Winnie

Rachel & Nate's Shelburne Farms & ECHO Burlington VT Wedding

"This day is about you and your partner above all. Remember to look your partner in their eyes often throughout the day and night and check in with each other as a "home" base that can slow everything else down for that moment. Remember also that people have traveled far and wide to celebrate you and your unique love for one another. They are not coming to see a show or to see anything other than your authentic selves. Show up as you are (albeit a little fancier than every other day, perhaps) and know that you are deeply loved and cared for by each of your guests in their own way. Remember to nourish your body that day as well as to nourish your mind however you need to. Stay out of your head and stay present for the moments because they go by all too quickly! Little things might happen because life is imperfect and making the choice to embrace the imperfections helps a lot. Focus on LOVE, JOY, and the CONNECTION of all of the pieces and pause often to remember those things. " - Rachel

Immigrant Stories from the AALV in Burlington, VT

"Most people who come here as refugees, come from countries where there was torture or war. They had to run away from something. At some point, this trauma will become a challenge. I think the challenge is finding psychologists who have cultural competency training who have a deep understanding of the trauma that they may have gone through." - Thato Ratsbe
