I had the best time shooting Jeremy and Colin’s engagement photos. We started out in Vergennes, VT, at 3 Squares Cafe and meandered our way through downtown Vergennes before driving to Basin Harbor Club for the majority of their shoot. It was so interesting to see the bones of Basin Harbor Club’s 125 year old vine without any leaves. Soon this vine will become a gorgeous veil of green leaves and bloom but I loved to see the knuckles of its knotted roots. We had the most peaceful evening by Lake Champlain which had a glassy calmness to it. Jeremy and Colin were so much fun to hang out with and so easy to photograph– I can’t wait for their wedding this summer!

I am honored to be asked to exhibit my photography in this Addison County Career Artists exhibition at the Vermont State House. Below are my two photos currently on display at the exhibit. The show will run through March 28th.

Artists on exhibit at this show include:

Warren Kimble, Rebecca Purdum, Woody Jackson, Kirsten Hoving, Kate Gridley, Lily Hinrichsen, John West Townsend, Hannah Sessions, Greg Burnhardt, Cat Cutillo, Ross Sheehan and Anneke Jewett

“Uncle John” 2014

Middlebury native, John Reynolds, is my Uncle-in-law, who now lives in Brandon. He is a Veteran, a collector and a giver. He swings by our house periodically in his truck. I always know his knock—loud and deliberate. Aside from his physical collections, he’s got a collection of great stories. His visits are short—under 15 minutes, but well executed—he’ll pull out a cigarette, tell you a wild story and leave you with a trinket before he heads back out on the road. Photographed in the heart of a frigid Vermont winter, his beard and cigarette blended perfectly into the overcast lighting. And of course after the shoot, Uncle John flashed his secret smile and handed over a Mannequin head with green earrings as a sentiment for coming by.

“Windmill” 2011

This is the moment before a fall storm hits. I was taken by the rusty metal of the windmill juxtaposed by the dry golden grass and back-dropped by that beautiful churning blue. I drove by this windmill everyday in Addison, VT, but it suddenly looked alive with the dramatic lighting and the inevitable rage of rain to come.

I am thrilled to share that I was selected as a winner of the 2014 Two Bright Lights Editors’ Choice Award! I am honored to be part of this talented group of creative professionals. Only the top 5% of Two Bright Lights 35,000 professionals worldwide were given this award for achieving the most published features in 2013. This is a true testament to the amazing wedding couples and clients that I have the privilege of working with!
