Ballerina Bride

Bridal Portrait Couture

I had so much fun photographing Heather. She is a great actress, singer, piano player & dancer! She is the complete package ;) If you like a good play, you probably have seen her acting somewhere in Vermont. The dress: the first dress you see is a Love Marley, Penelope Wedding gown from Fiori Bridal. So delicate and almost magical. The location: Richmond library. Perfect light was our charm for the day.

Spring Inspiration

Getting in the Mood

for Spring!

I fell in love with Vermont and it’s winter season. Seriously! I love the snow, the cold air on my face, the sound of my steps on the snowy walkways, the smell of firewood in the air. It just feels so good. The best part is to have a cozy home to comeback to, and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate while I work from my desk facing the window that overlooks the neighbors’ white roofs and pinetrees.  But. I have to say: I’m ready for spring! Super inspired for this renewing  and colorful season.

This spring inspiration shoot happened during the snowstorm last Sunday, at Fiori Bridal Boutique, in Essex Junction, with the help of Makeup Artist and Hairstylist, Sarah Crowley from Finishing Touch and, or course, the gorgeous model Jamie Hickey. Featured wedding dresses from Stella York, Love Marley and Casablanca collections. Flowers courtesy of Green Mountain Florist Supply.
