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!

Engagement at Burlington Waterfront

Amber & Bill

After many weeks trying to sync our schedules and catch a good weather, we finally got our shoot done.  A beautiful evening by the Waterfront Park in Burlington, VT. It was a very relaxed session with hints of a nautical theme. Burlington is a great backdrop for any kind of portraits. You have the mountain views from Battery Park, a nautical look by the waterfront, an urban/boutique look at Church St.  I LOVE BURLINGTON, VT! Engagement at Burlington Waterfront

If you still didn’t have a chance to have a print in your hands, take a look at their online version of Green Mountain Weddings or Stowe Weddings magazines. This annual edition is featuring our Sweet Love stylized shoot from 2014 spring. Green Mountain Weddings & Stowe Weddings are the same magazine, featuring the same content, but with different covers. We are the cover for Stowe Weddings this year.

We are super excited to be collaborating with the Stowe Reporter to put out another stunning edition next year. A gorgeous fall shoot with amazing vendors can’t happen soon enough!

Like us on Facebook and keep inspired and up to date with our most recent work! Wedding season is here, and I plan to keep my blog running with all the amazing weddings I will have the honor to capture this year.

The face of Vermont

Beautiful Vermont

Labor Day I went for a drive up to Lake Willoughby in Vermont. On the way there I stopped by Martin Bridge, and on the way back, I waited for the sunset at Wildflower Inn. I’m mesmerised by the beauty of those places. I can’t explain the feeling I had while approaching Lake Willoughby for the first time. Those huge mountains framing the crystal green water against a bright blue sky, are breathtaking. Make sure you stop at The Country Store at the park, they make delicious sandwiches, with fresh ingredients, prepared by Bari. Wildflower Inn, what can I say? Peaceful place with a stunning landscape. Perfect place to watch the sunset: the heaven’s bench.

Stowe and Mount Mansfield VT Fall 2013

Stowe and Mount Mansfield VT

This is my first FALL season in Vermont – my favorite season of the year on the perfect place! This weekend we drove around Stowe, and then drove up to Mount Mansfield. On our way to Stowe we stopped at Cold Hollow Cider Mill for an apple cider (drink & donut). No better way to start the day, right?  We stopped in Stowe town, and hangout there, enjoying some live music, and than headed to Mount Mansfield.

Busy day up there, with hikers from all over the country, and even a wedding going on!  It was simple & beautiful.  Bride & groom rode their bikes down the mountain after the ceremony 🙂 Stowe and Mount Mansfield VT

Today we went apple-picking at the Boyer’s orchard! Life can’t get much fresher than that! Some pie-making during the week, for sure!

One more perfect weekend in Vermont!  Stowe and Mount Mansfield VT

Driving around Vermont

 Driving around Vermont

Driving around Vermont. Yesterday we took a road trip through the back roads around Vermont.  We stopped in Bristol for lunch and had a delicious pizza at Cubbers Restaurant, then an awesome icecream at Lulu. Back on the road we drove by Goshen town, Blueberry Hill – Moosealamoo National Park (my new favorite place for a pic-nic), and many more beautiful places. On the way back we took Rt 100. Can’t wait until fall. Next I want to visit and photograph all covered bridges in VT.
