Marla and Shawn had a stunning destination wedding at Hans Fahden Winery in Napa Valley, California. They had many of the traditional elements and celebrated in good style, but the day after their wedding, they wanted to spice things up a bit. So we did a very special newlywed session in the Marin Headlands and along the California Coast.
First stop, Point Bonita Lighthouse- so fun- everyone was cheering and so gracious, allowing the newlyweds to cross the bridge at the head of the line.
When walking back up the hill from the lighthouse, we noticed this little path in the grasses and a fabulous view of the Golden Gate Bridge. We had to stop and enjoy the scenery.
We had parked by this old bunker. It was a great place to play around for a bit. All of the old, rusty metal provided great texture and contrast to Marla’s softness.
Yes, they got wet and yes, it was very, very cold. These two were such troopers though. I was amazed!
We really got so lucky with the weather and the day turned out to be perfect. If you want to see more from their TTD session and their wedding, definitely take a look at their slideshow, their sneak preview, and their scoop.
We are so excited to share a few more images from our fashion editorial photographed in Killington, Vermont this winter. It has been such a challenge to narrow them down. We had the most perfect conditions- wonderful models (thank you, Mai and Rob) and a stunning wintery scene- a mountain backdrop, snow falling just when we wanted it and sunlight when we needed it (thank you, weather gods). So I did my best to only put a few of our faves up on the blog. If you want to see more, you can definitely check out our flickr photostream. Click here for the Vermont Winter Wedding Portrait set.
And once again, we could not have done any of these without our amazing partners in crime. Thank you so much to the gals at Bridal Heirlooms- you ladies are so wonderful to work with and you have amazing style- thank you. And much gratitude to Bill and Anne at Mountain Meadows Lodge. Everything was perfect- we are so grateful for your warmth and hospitality!

Towards the end of the summer, we were able to do a fabulous fashion shoot at the Lord Thompson Manor. We shared a sneak peak of the photo fun a few weeks back. Now that the wedding season is coming to a close, we wanted to revisit and give you a full taste of what we did with this bridal shoot. We had such a good time working with our model Samantha, Christine and Shirley from Bridal Heirlooms, and enjoying the beautiful grounds of Jackie’s Lord Thompson Manor. I can’t say enough how much we appreciate the generosity of all these ladies. Thank you!!!!
No slideshow this week; all the photographs are right here on the blog. Enjoy!
When we spoke with the amazing ladies from Bridal Heirlooms about doing a fashion shoot, we immediately knew where we wanted to do the shoot. And as we thought more about it we knew what story we wanted the images to tell. Each idea came more and more into focus.
Bridal Heirlooms has a wonderful selection of dresses and Christine and Shirley know just how to match a gown to a person’s style. We wanted to create a collection of images that hearkened back to times gone by, but with a modern touch. And we wanted to show off their fabulous gowns.
The Lord Thompson Manor is a stunning wedding site nestled in the woodlands of Northeastern Connecticut. It is just a short drive from Boston, Rhode Island, Hartford, and even, New York. A perfect getaway close to home, this estate was once a hunting villa. The feel of the site is still warm and welcoming and intensely glamorous – a wonderful place for wedding photography.
Here’s a sneak preview of the Lord Thompson Manor bridal fashion shoot.
