square albums in sizing: 12x12”, 10x10” & 5x5” // signature album, 8x12” on right

SIGNATURE ALBUM // 8x12”

this is by far our most popular album. the size, shape, look & feel is fashion forward. we love designing our signature albums with about 40 pages which gives that extra weighted feel in your lap with jaw dropping full bleed crops for a highly impactful and contemporary story.

SQUARE // 12x12”

our largest size square is an heirloom you cuddle in a big couch with while loved ones look on to the oversized pages. gather round, grab the tissues and make a weekend viewing of it!

SQUARE // 10x10”

our second most popular album size is our square 10x10”. it’s the goldie locks option, where it’s not too big, but not too small. we prefer it to be just the two of you cuddling up to enjoy this size. <3

SQUARE // 8x8” & 5x5”

our smaller albums, also known as token albums or parent albums make for just that - a sweet thank you to parents, elopements, a private bridal boudoir album or a portrait collection. because of their petit size, we prefer to use less images on these spreads for greater impact on the pages. shown is the 5x5” size.

Vermont Professional Photographers // Print Competition

this will be my 5th year submitting work for the annual print competition with the Vermont Professional Photographers and it’s the first year where i feel like i actually “get it.“ i say that because there is a particular style, ascetic each image is judged on along with their title. it’s especially difficult for wedding images specifically due to the sheer fact there isn’t a whole lot of control a photographer has on a wedding day. (well, limited control.) therefore i don’t submit wedding images for that reason. until this year..

there are specific things the judges are looking for that go into the meriting of an image which is the standard from the Professional Photographers of America. images are judged on:

impact

tehnical excellance

creativity

style

composition

presentation

color balance

center of interest

lighting

subject matter

technique

story telling

SO …… I MEAN……. just remember to think of ALL Of those things in addition to your exposure settings the next time you click a shutter. :)

so proud to show off my first ever wedding image that i submitted got a blue ribbon (scored 80 out of 100)! i was actually working behind the scenes at the live judging (SO EXCITING!) and got to listen in on the judges critiques. this has always been THEE highlight of my year - listening to feedback and the critique. and also doing my best not to jump in and try to defend myself. ;) my favorite part about art school - and in life - are the critiques. how can you grow if you don’t know what doesn’t work and what does? i try to apply it to all aspects of my life.

_93A9694R.jpg

i received a Court of Honor award from last year’s blue ribbon entry “Shades of Radiance.” it’s been my highest scored print thus far at 84!

just some bragging and photo love here at the CKPhoto studio and a reminder that your art form is a beautiful journey and not ever ever a race. XOXO

CAITLIN & JESUS // JANUARY 4, 2019 // ZEN BARN, WATERBURY, VERMONT

first wedding of 2019 & what a way to kick off the season!

caitlin and jesus married at zen barn in waterbury, which is the best barn for a winter wedding! thee coziest atmosphere for a snowy (& sunny) winter day! what a way to start the new year off!

their details perfectly reflected them; the coffee beans from ecuador in honor of jesus’ family, the puzzle solving seating assignment from caitlin’s engineer crafting and the most heartfelt wedding vows. (i am pretty good at keeping it together, but totally got watery-eyed!)

the deep royal wedding colors contrasted against the winter setting sun and check out this champagne toast with the wedding party right before the reception! they sure know how to get the party started!

thank you caitlin and jesus for having me there to capture your stunning day. i wish more couple’s would embrace the winter like you! XOXO
