We've never stalked the weather forecast as hard as we did this past weekend for Christina and Mike's wedding in New Hampshire. There was, after all, a good chance of rain, and we reaaaaallly wanted it to be bright and clear, especially for a wedding with this good of a view. Of course, we were all thrilled when not one rain drop was in attendance for the entire afternoon and evening, just incredible golden light. Besides the incredible scenery of Castle in the Clouds, we loved how Christina and Mike merged their Protestant and Jewish traditions in a ceremony with both a Pastor and a Rabbi, the beautiful ways they included their siblings in every aspect of the day, and how they and their friends know how to party! We'll let the photos do the rest of the talking for this incredibly gorgeous wedding.

Spending time with Theresa and Tiffani is like going to the best kind of party- the sort where you feel like you've known everyone there for your entire life, though you've just met, and everyone can't stop laughing. When they're not cuddling on the couch watching crime dramas or hanging out with their equally hilarious group of friends, Theresa and Tiffani work as social workers, and I can't imagine how lucky their clients feel to be working with them.
We spent Saturday afternoon chasing light and water around the White Mountains, eating Twizzlers, and applying copious amounts of bug spray during the engagement session that felt just as much like a hangout as a photo shoot. Can't wait for their wedding at Ohana Camp in September!
As I looked through each wedding and engagement session from the past year to choose our favorite photos, I was reminded by all the happy memories and funny stories from the past twelve months. Every couple we worked with this year was down-to-earth, low-key, and so in love with each other that the little details weren't a stressor. We loved how everyone made their wedding absolutely their own, from the blanket toss at Celeste and David's wedding to Caitlin and Devin's Irish Fiesta.
2016 was also special for me, as I was able to leave my job as a newspaper photographer to run this wonderful little business full-time. I'm so happy to be able to give each wedding even more time and attention and have added flexibility for engagement sessions (and editing in my PJs is a huge perk, too).
During the quieter season this winter, when I'm not editing sessions or working on improving our website, I'm helping Jeff finish building our timber-frame modern farmhouse (also right here in Tunbridge), that I'm excited to share with y'all. As always, you can take a peek at my Instagram for what our Vermont Winter looks like, or head over to Jeff's for a look at the house progress.
We're getting excited for all that 2017 has in store!

When Caitlin and Devin inquired this winter about photographing their wedding and mentioned there would be a queso fountain at the fiesta-themed reception (they met at a Tequila party while Caitlin was a student at the Tuck Business School in Hanover), we were down. When we met up with them a month ago to take engagement photos and drink champagne in the pouring rain, we knew we were going to have an incredible time at their wedding. Our predictions were correct: Caitlin and Devin's wedding was jam-packed with bright color, Caitlin's giant extended family from Brooklyn/Virginia, a party short bus, INCREDIBLE food, and even an appearance from their dog, Miller. It's easy to see from the photographs how sweet/chill Devin and Caitlin both are, and how they couldn't keep their eyes off each other the whole day.
