This post is has been a long time in the making. I shot 11 weddings in 2015 resulting in nearly 10,000 finished images and that is a lot to go through to narrow down to one blog post. I narrowed it down to 600, then 300, then 200...you get the idea. Finally I gave up on making a very complete look at my wedding season (that'd be just too long) or a very concise look either (I struggle to edit my images down to just a tight selection) so I settled on just picking out some of my favorites instead resulting in 136, which is about 1% of the images I started with.
Portraits is one of my favorite things to do so I naturally gravitated to many of those, but one of my main goals is to capture authentic moments and emotions so I love a lively dance floor, tears that can't be held in, I like the joyful face of a child, the proud look of a parent, the beaming love between two people, and anything a little weird! My 2015 season was a great opportunity for me to witness and capture the humanity of the weddings of a lot of cool folks. I often get asked what kind of crazy wedding stories do I have and the truth is I just seem to end up shooting weddings with people who really do love each other and are there to have fun with their family and friends.
Locations for this year brought me throughout Vermont and into New Hampshire and included the Three Stallion Inn in my hometown of Randolph, The Alerin Barn in St. Johnsbury, The Norwich Inn and the Hanover Inn in the Upper Valley (same wedding), the Landgoes Farm in Tunbridge, the Moose Meadow Lodge in Waterbury, The 1824 House in Waitsfield, the Apple Hill Inn in Taftsville, Hewitt Hill Farm in Pomfret, the Woodstock Inn in Woodstock, The Wallingford Lodge in Wallingford, and a backyard wedding on the shores of Lake Fairlee in Post Mills. I shot several of these solo, but also teamed up with talented photographers Tim Calabro, Lucas deSousa, and Amy Donohue on weddings they had booked.
All in all it was a fun season of wedding photography and I'm looking for to the upcoming 2016 season. Oh yeah, and here are those favorites in no particular order:
