It’s so exciting to share these photographs with you. Heidi and Steve are two of the kindest people we’ve ever had the privilege to work with and at possibly our favorite Vermont wedding venue, no less. Shelburne Farms is a magical place, for sure. Erin Boyd, Liz and the rest of the staff are so fun to work with every time. It’s a dream to have the opportunity to photograph a wedding there.

We were also so happy to have worked with Let’s Pretend Catering, Vermont Tent Company and Jayson Munn Designs who did an incredible job making the Coach Barn and surrounding areas look incredible.

As some of you might have noticed, we’ve been incorporating a lot of film photographs into our wedding and portrait work and the more and more I shoot film, the more and more I want to keep doing it. There’s no question that it’s not the most practical medium out there, nor the quickest or cost-effective but you can’t quite replicate the kind of soul film is able to bring to life.

These cool cats are getting married this fall and I’m beyond excited to photograph their wedding day. Linda had the amazing idea to go blueberry picking as part of their engagement session and we ended up going to Green Mountain Orchards in Putney, Vermont which is nothing short of beautiful. Complete with beautiful wildflower fields, rows of fruit trees, and mountain views. Everything you could ever want to see and do in Vermont in one place.

If you couldn’t tell by this set, Linda and Andy are pretty photogenic. In my opinion, though, what really shines through in their photos most is their fun, carefree personalities and how much they truly adore each other.

I’ve realized this year that I haven’t been taking enough time to post personal blog posts. In general, I tend to be a very reserved person – If you follow me on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter,  I bet you’ve noticed I’m not a social media butterfly. I mostly consume (dare I say, lurk?) and on once in a blue moon, if I ever think up something I feel is clever enough to share with my little world, I post it. More and more, though, I’ve found even my occasional Facebook update or Instagram photo has become increasingly rare.

But in 2015 I’m going to work towards changing that. I think it will be a rewarding challenge to increasingly put myself out there and share some more of my life (however mundane or simple it may seem to me or anyone) with this blog. So I’ll start with some news and some pretty photos from our most recent (and first ever!) trip to Italy.

This trip signifies a great deal to us. For starters, it was Toby and I’s first-ever trip to Europe; something that had been on our bucket list for quite some time now. Secondly, it was the start of an exciting business partnership and friendship (more on that another time) and lastly, but not least-ly: Toby and I got engaged. We haven’t settled on a date, just yet. Nor have we picked a photographer (we get asked that a lot!). We just know that we want a very small and intimate celebration with the people we love most in this world and we’re so excited about our new future together.

So I leave you with some of my favorite photos from our trip to Italy. These were all shot on a medium format film camera using a combination of Fuji 400H and Portra. Makes me want to shoot everything on film.
