Our Delightful Summer Solstice Wedding in South Hero, Vermont

On Saturday, June 22, 2019, Nick and I married on the solstice in South Hero, Vermont. This place is very close to our hearts, and I was honored to stand on the same timeless rocks and shoreline that my parents, and many other family members exchanged their vows on. Just a few days earlier, a huge storm had come through the area and knocked down trees and the lawn was collecting puddles. Thanks to the help of more than a few people, everything pulled together and we had a wonderful windy, sunny day.

Abby Bowling Creative Portrait Session in Lake Champlain, Vermont and Powder House Square Park in Somerville, Massachusetts

“I was so happy to be able to do a photo shoot with Julia last fall. She took the time to understand what it was that I was looking for; asking questions to get me to think deeper about how I wanted to portray myself, and offering excellent guidance on clothing, backdrop, and how to make the most of our time together. The shoot itself was so much fun, with Julia giving silly and serious prompts to bring myself out. I feel so grateful to have her as a photographer, and a friend!” - Abby

Tina & Bill's Summer Rustic Vermont Wedding at The Little Farm at Lake Willoughby

Tina & Bill married on July 28, 2018 at The Little Farm at Willoughby. “We chose this venue because it had the most breath taking view. I grew up on Lake Willoughby, and being able to see the lake with the mountains behind it was a reflection of the love I share for my hometown, my family and my husband. It meant so much to me to have all of the people we love in the place that we love. We wanted to combine the city chic with rustic charm.” - Tina

Morgan & Jon's Wedding at The Stone House at Clove Lakes in Staten Island, New York

Morgan & Jon married on Saturday, June 16, 2018 at the Stone House at Clove Lakes in Staten Island, New York. Morgan got ready at her childhood home with the help of her mom and her maid of honor, Kiera. Morgan wore Kiera’s wedding dress, which fit her perfectly. She looked gorgeous and the fact that it was her best friend’s wedding dress only made it more special. I love when people get ready at their childhood homes because I get to see all sorts of amazing family details - like a portrait from her parent’s wedding or a small toy dog that is clearly a nod at the family dog, who stood guard as Morgan got ready.

Tess Keller Creative Portrait Session with Antique Living Coral Silk Scarf

The whole reason for this photoshoot was because I ran into Tess at Sweet Babu, my favorite dessert shop in Winooski, Vermont, and the light caught her vibrant eyes and I couldn’t stop thinking about them. To keep the photoshoot focused on her eyes, I decided it would be fun to challenge myself to have only a simple backdrop and the same pose in each shot with small variations to the light sources. I chose a living coral colored antique silk scarf to contrast her green eyes.

Chaipel & Mitch's Pastoral Scottish & Italian Inspired Vermont Wedding

“We wanted our wedding to be small and personal, and all about family. Mitch built the arbor we were married under from wood from the property in Westmoreland. We had so many family members participate: Mitch’s brother Bob married us, his brother Ed was a groomsman, and his nephew Dan was his  best man.  My sisters Anne and Kate were my bridesmaids and readings were done by Mitch’s daughters, Ivy and Fallon and my nieces Dorothy, Violet, and Claire. Our cake was made by Mitch’s niece Kate and our band was headed up by his nephew Chris. Lastly, my nephew Will walked me down the aisle and to top it all off our Labradoodle Finn was our ring bearer!” - Chaipel
