Lindsay was one of my first friends when I moved to Middlebury, VT when I was 10 years old. She was(is) nice to everyone and was one of the few people who made me feel at home in this new town. Since then we've left our matching oval glasses for contacts, run hundreds of miles in stride with each other, shared in the highs and lows of new love and heartbreak, slipped and slid through freshman year at UVM together leaning on each other when need be, and celebrating the new freedom that was life outside of Middlebury, and our lives continued to consistently weave in and out of each others way over the next three years. Lindsay and Jon have an easy, playful love with one another and hold their arms open to their family and friends to experience it with them. It's been a heck of a ride watching their story unfold, and I'm glad I was able to document their wedding day. Enjoy the photographs!
Frank and Lindsay got married at Pineland Farms in New Glouchester, Maine June 27th. Pineland is one of my favorite places to ski in the wintertime so I was thrilled at the opportunity to shoot a wedding there. I knew from the moment I met Lindsay and Frank that I would love shooting portraits of them on their wedding day as they were calm and easy with eachother, Frank making Lindsay laugh to feel comfortable in front of the camera and honestly never taking his eyes off of her. It became my joke of the day that he has the rest of his life to look at her and for these few short hours could he PLEASE look at the camera when asked. : ) Needless to say I had a great time, and hope you enjoy the photographs!
Hannah and Connor got married on August 8, 2014 on the gorgeous property of Connor's Aunt Eleanor and Uncle Dick: Cabot Plains Farm. Possibly one of the most idyllic locations I have ever wielded my camera, the weather was spectacular the entire weekend and Hannah and Connor were an absolute joy to photograph.
A few of my favorite details from the day:
Connor and his fellow bandmates from the Burlington Bread Boys played a few tunes while awaiting the women's arrival. Most of the members of the wedding party, and close friends camped out in the field across the street from the barn where the reception took place. Hannah hand made, not only her wedding favors, but also ornate leaf shaped earrings for her bridesmaids and necklaces for her flower girls. Hannah arrived at the ceremony with her mother and father driven by Chris Duff in a vintage automobile. The ceremony was performed by Hannah's father and Hannah and Connor read each other handwritten vows. We took a record number of family photos in a record amount of time and then we were off to the delicious dinner and dancing with music courtesy of my good friends from UVM, Eric George and Addie Herbert.
There is no way my words can do the day justice so I'll just let my photos take it from here.
Thank you Hannah and Connor for allowing me to be a part of your special day! Prints can be ordered here: http://gpowersfilm.pass.us/eatonwedding/
