Exploring Video-Fusion

I’ve always loved videography. For me, Videography is the live emotions of a photograph. After a while postponing to start learning about video-fusion and start including it in my Collections, I decided it was time to spice it up my artistic view and adventured myself into it. I’m just in love! I found it to have a life of it’s own. After I capture the videoclips, I just know where and how I want them to fit in my photography timeline. I’m really enjoying it!

Meagan was one of my brides from last year, super excited to have her Bridal Couture Session.  I chose Stowe, VT because I love it there. You find spots everywhere playing as the perfect backdrop.

Bridal Couture or Portrait Couture is something every woman should do for themselves. It’s a fun and beautiful experience.

Barn Wedding

Alyssa & Brett

June 4th 2016, Cyr Barn in Washington, VT

It was the perfect day in every aspect, for a barn wedding. Weather was gorgeous, timeline worked without major delays, and the videographer was awesome 🙂 Chris Rodgers from Forever Lucky Films.  Mr & Mrs couldn’t be more sweet and patience to allow me to direct them for few posed portraits in a beautiful farm field risking to be bitten by ticks 🙂

Here are my favorites of the day:

Vacation in Maine

Weekend in Ogunquit 

May 19-22, 2016

I drove by Ogunquit before I moved to Vermont few years ago and just fell in love with that place. The energy you feel while walking along the Marginal Way is indescribable. That is one place one have to visit in their life-time. I stayed at Blue Shutters Inn, in the heart of  Ogunquit and few steps from Marginal Way. It’s a nice little B&B at a fair rate considering the location and amenities. I got a studio, and even brought my cat with me (you need to call in advance to arrange a pet friendly room). I stayed for 4 days – Thu – Sun. On my second day I went on a 1 1/2 hour cruise to see the Nubble Lighthouse (I love lighthouses!). It’s a relaxing ride and you learn a lot about the region and lobster. Although you don’t need to go on a cruise to see the lighthouse, you can drive there and park really close to it.  Food: I can still smell the lobster and the delicious sea food you will find in any of the many great restaurants they have around. The ones I tried: Oarweed at Perkins Cove, nice family atmosphere, great service and the food was so yummy! I had Haddock stuffed with lobster, baked/stuffed potato, steamed veggies. Jackie’s Too is another good one, also at Perkins Cove. I had mussels (the garlic sauce was so good), lobster & shrimp and blueberry beer :). Lobster roll from the Fox Lobster House was also good.  Have you noticed I had lobster enough for 6 months at least (ha). Finally and unfortunately, my last morning in paradise having breakfast at Amore. Once again I was blessed with great weather and had the chance to take beautiful pictures of the sunrise from the Marginal Way.  Enjoy it and start planing your trip to Ogunquit!

Glam at it’s best

Wedding season is right around the corner form me.

Genuine Leather Album

The best quality

I’m so in love with the albums I offer to my clients. Just received another studio sample featuring my Fairytale shoot I had last September (2015). This sample has genuine black leather album cover, lay-flat rigid pages, coated to protect against the environment allowing you even to damp wipe the pages to remove any finger prints.   Click here to see the album sample online!
