Vermont Wedding: Meghan & Matt
Most wedding photographers will tell you that a gorgeous venue, a well planned day and beautiful weather will only set the stage for great photos. The key ingredient is the chemistry the couple shares together. Often times I find it hard to keep up with a couple who shares such amazing chemistry; there’s just too many fleeting moments worthy of capture! This past July I was thrilled to shoot for such a couple, Meghan & Matt at the West Monitor Barn in Richmond, Vermont. The couple, the wedding party, and the guests in attendance were all warm, fun and outgoing. As the photographer, you know you’re about to capture a joyous occasion when you arrive to find the bride and bridesmaids inside a barn, before any guests arrive, all dancing to the stereo with dizzy exuberance! The day was mild and cloudy, which event photographers often secretly hope for instead of full sun since there are no harsh shadows to worry about and colors pop in every frame! 3 Squares Cafe did a marvelous job with the catering!
Love this kind of personal touch at weddings; individualized coffee mugs!
I’ve shot at the West Monitor Barn a few times before and at every wedding I challenge myself to find new images I’ve not done before. This keeps you fresh and on your toes as a wedding photographer! So we took a walk way back behind the barn where I hadn’t been before and found a trail and a short foot bridge.
So cool how the Vermont landscape can fool you into thinking you’re a thousand miles from anywhere!
As a father now, I can just feel the pride in this man’s face. So special.
She’s not happy or anything, right? Making my job too easy
It’s always important, as the photographer, to tell the story as completely as possible. I make sure I get images from up close and from a wide perspective at any event I’m covering, weddings in particular.
I often ask the bride and groom to step outside for a few short minutes when the sun is setting. Here we had that stunning evening light being painted on the hillside opposite the barn.
3 Squares Cafe took care of the meal, it was superbly delicious.
The bride, taking the initiative to put on some totally kick-ass tunes for her wedding guests. I love how she’s holding her bouquet and navigating iTunes simultaneously.
Clouds threatened but never dropped any rain, instead they supplied a pretty skyline for our formals outside.
