jerusha & jevan’s engagement session, shelburne farms, near burlington, vt

I knew I was going to love this shoot–I had all the ingredients to make something really unique and special out of it. First, there’s this amazing couple, Jerusha and Jevan–smart, super-stylish, fun…and great looking, too. Then, when we decided to shoot at Shelburne Farms, up near Burlington, VT, I knew that I just had to hope for some nice light and we’d be all set. I’d never shot at this location before, but I knew enough about the farm to know I’d have plenty to work with there. And who doesn’t like a little challenge now and then–finding the best spots, with lots of variety and where the light was perfect, took a little time before we started shooting, but it was so worth it!

Just as Jerusha and Jevan arrived, the sun started doing that crazy in-and-out-of-the-clouds thing, so right from the start, we got some different looks. As we moved from location to location, chatting along the way, we all got more in the groove, and it seemed that every spot yielded something cooler than the previous one. Shelburne Farms is a really amazing place, and the location on Lake Champlain is truly awe-inspiring.

As you’ll see, it got pretty dark after leaving the farm, and before we arrived in Burlington for our second set. No problem…it just gave these photos a completely different vibe, but it’s another really good one, for sure.

Jerusha and Jevan were nothing short of great to work with, and we can’t wait for their Spring 2014 wedding in Saratoga Springs–it’s sure to be amazing in every way!

We are so lucky to have the great clients we get to work with week in and week out. I know stories of difficult clients (and vendors…) are common in this business, but for whatever reason, we seem to get the gems! Meg & Nick are perfect examples—loved these two from the first time we met!

The wedding day turned out to be a perfect summer day—warm without being ridiculous, and a beautiful blue sky with just a hint of clouds. You know, the pretty kind! Upon arriving at Meg’s parents’ house, we found the girls were all just about ready for us…that’s always nice, too! A big shout out to Make Me Fabulous for always doing such a great job with hair and makeup!  Shortly, it was time for Meg to get into her wedding dress…and man, what a dress it was! Definitely one of our favorites of the year–it’s unique, dramatic, and just really beautiful.  We weren’t surprised to find out she got it from Angela’s Bridal!

We proceeded downtown for Meg and Nick’s 1st Look, and then Wedding Party photos. All really good stuff—their Wedding Party was definitely a ton of fun. Next, we were off to the Rose Garden in Schenectady’s Central Park for family photos and a serious war with tiny flying bugs. Jeesh! Luckily, we were able to get through that, and the photos from there are some of the best of the entire day!

Some things in life can simply be counted on–St. John the Evangelist always makes for a dramatic wedding ceremony, and the Glen Sanders Mansion puts on a great reception. Meg & Nick chose an especially fabulous menu, with an incredible selection on the buffet stations. After dinner, the TS Ensemble was in full stride, and it was all just huge fun. Another great wedding in the books!

So, congratulations to this truly wonderful couple—we had a great time working with you!

Can’t forget to mention the rest of the great vendors who played a part in Meg & Nick’s wedding day – flowers by Party with Mia, and transport by Today’s Limo.
