I absolutely adore my wedding album studio in Italy. They’re simply the best. Amazing service & amazing quality and each and every album is carefully handcrafted. Their wedding albums are timeless, modern and now also rustic/vintage chic! The perfect match for fun and unique Vermont outdoor weddings.

Their booth at the WPPI Expo featured about every single cover/paper combination available and they had some new albums/styles that I had been waiting for for such a long time.

One album that blew my mind was created for the great Jerry Ghionis, master wedding photographer, and the pages were actual leather. A stunning wedding album.

Another new feature I was dying to finally get my hands on for my couples is albums with torn edge paper!!! Finally – I am beyond stoked and can’t wait to start designing these.

Here’s to 2017 and all my amazing couples and their wedding albums!

60 degrees and sunshine greeted us upon touching down in Las Vegas. To the locals, it was clearly winter as evident by folks wearing winter coats. Having just landed from Northern Vermont via Montreal, where it was a whooping 14 degrees (Fahrenheit), we chuckled a little bit. Just like when we were living back in Los Angeles and would move inside at Cafe P because it was just too darn “cold” outside. Perspective is everything.:-)

We were in town for the annual WPPI Convention (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International).

It so awesome to not only escape the snow & cold once a year but to reconnect with wedding photographers from across the globe, to attend workshops and seminars, to check out new vendors & products at the Expo and … to enjoy everything Vegas has to offer!

I hit the ground running … Tuesday saw me at the Convention Center for the better part of 12 hours (Damian was awesome enough to grab us some In’n’Out Burgers for lunch – double-double protein style!), taking in everything humanly possible.

One of my favorite classes was with famed Melbourne wedding photographer Yervant – who demonstrated exactly how to put anybody at ease in front of the camera. Note that our beautiful “bride” is not a model but a high school junior … and Carly did an amazing job, despite facing roughly 30 photographers. Thank you for being such a great sport!!!!

I met with Chass & Tim on New Year’s Eve to take their engagement photos in Stowe just as the sun was setting over the village. The freshly fallen snow made for a fantastic backdrop for their pictures and I absolutely love how much in love these two are!

Whether it’s in the winter, spring, summer, fall, mud season, rain, shine, snow or anything in between – if you’re looking for engagement photos anywhere in New England, just give me a shout!

I’m super lucky.

I get to work in an amazing area and really, what’s better than being a Vermont wedding photographer? (although we do travel quite a bit to other states to photograph weddings).
My husband, Damian, is not only my 2nd shooter but also a Vermont wedding officiant so we get to work together quite a bit … although it never feels like work.
My couples are the most amazing people ever.

L & L came to Stowe, Vermont all the way from Ontario for their intimate winter elopement. Damian wrote a custom ceremony for them, we found the perfect location for the outdoor wedding ceremony, on a little bridge framed by two trees overlooking the mountains and after the ceremony explored the town for some fun and relaxed wedding photos.

L & L asked that I not publish any pictures of the two of them and I’m more than happy to oblige – so instead, I’m sharing their super cute “We just eloped” sign and the gorgeous wedding bouquet and boutonnière made by Regal Flower Design.

After discovering an awesome recipe for Portuguese Christmas Cookies right around Thanksgiving, we made no less than 3 batches of these fabulous cookies. The first time, we doubled the recipe because … well, because! We ran out of cookies on Day Three. Friends wanted to sample them so we made another batch. This time we tripled the recipe. One friend was lucky enough to sample two cookies before they were gone again.

In mid-December, we made one final batch, this time quadrupling the recipe figuring they’d last us until the holidays. We were incorrect. We had cookies for breakfast, cookies for lunch and cookies for dinner. We had cookies like they were going out of style. Cookie monster had nothing on us.

Then we got sick of cookies and swore to never binge like that again. Back to our regular diet and exercise we went although the first day “back” went something like this “What DO people eat for breakfast (other than cookies)?”

So while we’re now back to being healthy again, I positively can’t wait for the start of this year’s wedding season and seeing (and tasting!) all those delicious wedding cakes again. Or wedding cookies.
