This past weekend I had the pleasure of visiting Vermont for the wedding of Adrienne and Dave.
When I was contacted by Adrienne about photographing her wedding I could tell right away that we were on the same page. Then, when she told me about the venue, The Sumner Mansion Inn, I had check out their website!
When the wedding day arrived the weather was just awesome. There were clear blue skies, plenty of sun and even a cool breeze. The wedding party was getting ready when I arrived so I got to explore the venue a little. But, before I knew it everyone was ready to go and the wedding began.
One thing that I noticed immediately was how close the wedding party was. The ladies were hilarious and were super fun to work with and the men looked really sharp.
What a great couple!
Please enjoy a glimpse of the wedding day.

Congratulations again Adrienne and Dave!!
Engagement sessions are so nice because they are relaxed, zero pressure, and I get to chat with the couple ahead of their wedding.
Barbara and Kurt met about 4 yrs ago through friends and have been together ever since. They are very nice and although life keeps them very busy they're happy to just go with the flow. Did I mention they are moving to Michigan only a few weeks after their wedding? So needless to say taking a break from all the wedding and moving planning it was nice to visit one of their local hot spots, Moore State Park for a walk and some nice photos.
The day couldn't have been nicer, not too hot or cold, and slightly overcast. We talked and walked around for a bit and got a variety of photos.
I can't wait to photograph their wedding in two weeks at the Asa Waters Mansion in Millbury, MA!!
As my fourth wedding season goes under way it had me thinking about the overall experience. I started my journey by doing some shadowing and second shooting. I read a lot of articles online and found some amazing photographers. I found that there are so many styles out there and different ways of telling the story of the wedding day.
It was great to see that you could be yourself in the world of photography. Although its easy to want to be like someone you admire, or try out shots you've seen, it is totally up to you how you present yourself.
So in the past couple years I've done some second shooting and a lot of primary shooting. I learned so much and continued to work on my "style".
Photography has been so much fun, but wedding photography has just been so rewarding. I have met so many great people, visited wonderful places and have been able to share in all the fun of a very special day. At first it was all about getting the right photos, but later it was about feeling the day.
I've watched families come together. I've heard some deep and hilarious toasts and seen people dancing furiously. I've listened to bands, DJs and some great MCs. I've gotten to visit several states and shot in a variety of climates. And I've laughed with the wedding party.
Weddings are so special and leave me with such a great feeling. I'm honored to be a wedding photographer and can't wait to continue.
I honestly feel that as the wedding photographer I get the best seat in the house.
I've been looking forward to photographing this wedding for quite some time now. Not only did I know the venue would be fantastic, but Rachel and Erik are such a fantastic couple. I met up with them in Worcester a couple months back and instantly I could tell they had planned a fantastic wedding, and that they were truly meant for one another.
The setting would be at the White Room, which is part of the Crompton Collective, a well known Worcester landmark. In addition, I was told that this would be one of the very first weddings held there. Previously the White Room held functions and all kinds of events. Of course, if you're local and haven't visited, you have to go!
On the day of the wedding the birds were chirping, the sky was blue and the weather was just perfect. I met with both wedding parties at the Holiday Inn Express in Worcester for some getting ready photos. We then continued on to Green Hill Park for some formal photos before heading to the White Room for the ceremony.
The reception was filled with dance moves, laughter neither Rachel nor Erik skipped a beat. Did I mention they had a burrito bar? And the Wooberry truck made an appearance as well, so good!
What a fun wedding! Please enjoy some photos of Rachel and Erik's big day!
