Ashley and Andre's Stratton Engagement Session

Ashley and Andre's Stratton Engagement Session

It was only 10 days ago that Ashley first contacted me!  She told me about Andre proposing to her at Big Sky Montana and their love of Skiing.  We quickly came to the conclusion that if she wanted to incorporate their love of skiing in their engagement shoot we needed to meet as soon as possible.  Thankfully we were able to do the shoot the very next Saturday and we had the most perfect March day in Vermont!  We rode up the mountain on the chairlifts, down the gondola, and then made our way to the most perfect little red covered bridge!  We had so much fun and I am so happy that I was able to work with them!

Church Street With Annaliese

Church Street With Annaliese

Wow, what a summer it has been!  After this crazy summer and fall, during which shooting and editing consumed all my time, and kept me from my usual blogging, I am back at it!  So, get ready for some beautiful, sunny, warm summer scenes!

To start us back up, let me tell you a little about Annaliese!  She called me last winter from Charlotte, North Carolina.  She is a blogger, and was getting ready to make the move to Vermont to pursue her career in Broadcast Journalism!  We started our first shoot on Church Street in downtown Burlington and ended on top of a parking garage!

I am so excited to share Emily and Jamison's wedding a the Ponds!  They had such a perfect day! We started with a first look by the pond and we had some wonderful time taking portraits of the two of them, their wedding party and family.  As we were finishing the portraits, some huge storms rolled in, but when it was time for the ceremony the rain went away and the sun came back out!   They danced the night away with their family and friends and we ended the night with a sparkler exit.  These were the smokiest sparklers I have ever seen!  After some super smokey exit photos we were able to capture some magical smokey photos of just the two of them at the very end.
