Sister Photoshoot // Erika & Liz // September, 2016 // Underhill, Vermont

erika & liz thought it was time to update some family portraits, which they surprised their mother and step father with at christmas! we were so sneeky with the whole session! starting to plan in august & using the perfect location - their mother and step father's dream house and garden which was custom built! we chose a perfect place on the bedroom wall for the portrait to hang and mission accomplished on how surprised mom was on christmas day opening it!

these two beauties could pass for an alternative music group cover spread! loved spending the afternoon with these graceful beauties in the mountains of vermont.

XOXO

Amanda & Benjamin // Wedding February 11, 2017 // Lilac Inn, Brandon VT

amanda and benjamin...

so many heartfelt skype calls and wedding secrets about how certain details are unimportant on a wedding day. (most of you know i, myself married in a courthouse in sweden with 10 people and stuffed as many as i could (17!) in our apartment for the reception.) when you think of your wedding day, and what is left after all is said and done is: your marriage. (i also like to say the photos because, i mean, c'mon..)

 i feel like anyone planning a wedding: listen to yourself. there are social norms, family expectations, pressure from friends. but honestly, this is where you can go.your.own.way. have a think about what is most important to you. in a way, planning a wedding is like a right of passage where you get to be the 'hostess with the mostess' with making detailed selections of napkin color & h'orderves. every couple, every person is different and as a photographer i am here to capture your story from the beginning. no matter what flowers you have or don't have. 

amanda first told me she thought benjamin was handsome. she is vermont girl, one who lights up the entire room when she walks in, the best laugh that makes you laugh; she is captivating, vivacious, hilarious and so down to earth you know her roots are with her family & friends. benjamin is a handsome, jazz musician from philly and is thee perfect ying to amanda's yang. soft spoken, yet he can make amanda laugh like no other. he grounds her, supports her and adores life in the fast lane with her.

they just wanted to get married on the staircase of the lilac inn, with the snow outside & a house party filled with their loved ones.

i think it was more than accomplished and i was thrilled to be there with them on this wedding journey. xoxo

Ally & Ryan | Engagement Session | September 2016, Burlington, VT

ally & ryan!

they met in prep school in connecticut. there was a "walk back" system where a boy always walks a girl back to her room at night. ryan always walked ally back to her room. (everyone: AWWNN! prep school romance!)

he proposed in an apple orchard and this august will be their wedding in, of all places, vermont! 

i had such a blast with these two for their gorgeous engagement session in downtown burlington on a lucky sunny and warm september day! we talked about locations, spots, and what they enjoyed the most, to which ally informed me: i just want to watch the sunset and drink a beer. DONE & DONE! (my kinda girl, we can see ryan why you scooped her up so quick!)

enjoy their collection and stay tuned for their summer wedding - 5 months and counting!

XOXO
