I met Kristen and Adam at the tail end of peak foliage this October. I love this couple! They are absolutely adorable! Kristen has her own Etsy shop where she showcases her jewelry and Adam has a strong passion for photography. With this connection to the arts they chose to get married next year at one of my favorite venues, the Stone Mountain Arts Center! I had a feeling their engagement session was going to be something special, and it was beautiful! We started their shoot at a classic rustic barn in downtown North Conway and also found a beautiful spot there where all the leaves had fallen to the ground. Gorgeous! Next we headed to one of my favorite scenic spots here in North Conway with beautiful fields that have the most stunning views of Whitehorse Ledge, Cathedral Ledge and the Moat Mountain Range. Kristen slipped into a lovely bohemian dress for this location, which added just a touch more of romance to the images. So pretty and fun! We photographed there as the sun was setting on this partly overcast day, and then snapped a few dusk portraits right at the end! Thank you Kristen and Adam! You made it so hard to pick these finals because there were so many beautiful images! Can’t wait for your wedding day at the Stone Mountain Arts Center next year!
When Katherine contacted me about her wedding day, I was so excited I still had the date available! She shared with me her intimate and unique wedding details in Vermont and hoped I could capture her day as she loved my work! I’m so glad it worked for all of us, as I loved their wedding day! Katherine and Tom had their first look moment at the Hotel Vermont: a new modern, chic, and beautiful hotel right in downtown Burlington. We took a few portraits there and then hopped in our cars to take some fun portraits in downtown Burlington. We headed to Lake Champlain with the beautiful Adirondacks in the distance and a classic pier to walk out on. Near the lakeside, there were beautiful industrial buildings with fun brick textures and a fabulous wooden door for us to work with as our backdrop. Next, we headed to a couple cool murals tucked away on Burlington side streets. Wow, so different and sublime, a photographers dream to shoot at these spots! But wait, they needed to get married! After the mural photos we headed to the Intervale Community Farms for their ceremony. Their closest friends and family were gathered inside the beautiful red barn and watched Katherine’s mother and father walk her down the aisle to Tom. They had a sweet ceremony inside the barn and sealed it with a kiss! Family portraits followed and a fun group photo of everyone as well! Soon it was time to head back to Hotel Vermont for the reception. On our way back we swung by Lake Champlain for a few stunning sunset portraits and, when we arrived at the hotel, we took a couple of portraits in Hotel Vermont’s contemporary designed interior. At the reception there were lovely toasts, sweet first dances and fun dancing with everyone! Thank you so much for having me capture your day Katherine & Tom, I enjoyed every moment of it! It is definitely a favorite from the 2013 season!
