Nate and Kristen are dear, dear friends of ours. The dearest. We knew that this one July weekend at Chocorua View Farm in North Conway, New Hampshire was going to be magical – simply in the way these two love each other.

We stayed with them in the adorable farmhouse on the property. Friends and family arrived to help all day. Their dog, Kenai, seemed so content to be close on this special occasion.

My own husband, Gary, served as Best Man, and I couldn’t have been any more honored than to photograph him in this role!

So much was hand-created for Nate and Kristen’s wedding celebration, including the table decor, flowers, signs, and tons of yummy jam for guests to take as favors. My favorite was the massive box of string lights that had been passed down from two other weddings before!

Everyone had such a great day – you could just see it everywhere in forms of laughter, tears, toasting and dancing! Love will do that to ya – and these guys share a love like no other.

Incidentally, Kristen and I now share something almost as cool – we both saw our very first shooting star together as we walked back to the farmhouse at the end of the night! #stealtheshow

We love you guys, and can’t wait to see where this life takes you. I know we’ll be friends long into old age, and it’s gonna rock.

    Michele - Beautiful photos Stacey! And beautiful photos Kristen and Nate! What a lovely wedding – congrats! Kristen — I love your table decorations and ironically the ones I am making are almost identical – it’s nice to see that they worked out well :)

The Simon Pearce Mill, in Quechee, is one of the most unique and beautiful places you can visit in Vermont – and always a stunning backdrop for any wedding or rehearsal celebration!

A big shout to Dan & Bridget for having me along to their rehearsal dinner this August! It was here that I realized how much I actually love photographing rehearsal evenings! What a great chance for me to get to know the most important people in your wedding plans, so we’re all that much more comfortable and collaborative for photos the next day. But even better, I’m able to snap some beautiful photos of the couples and families present. Chances are good everyone’s more relaxed AND dressed in outfits they chose themselves (vs. bridesmaid dresses or suits).

Congrats on your marriage, Dan & Bridget!!

    heidi - what an amazing spot for a RD….surrounded by all that beautiful glass!

I’m easily confused as to whether Lindsay & Luke were my friends or my clients first. Turns out they were actually clients first, but we had such a blast doing their engagement photos only the week before their wedding that it actually made the wedding day even more fun!

The happy couple trekked up to Vermont with their dog Lexi to explore the hillside of the Sunderland and Manchester (VT) area with me. We had a great time hopping in and out of the car for a few sweet backdrops, and then played in the rain at Hildene Meadows before settling in for a cocktail under cover.

Such great sports playing in the rain! I can’t wait to share more of Luke & Lindsay’s August wedding day soon!

    Romantic Wedding of Lindsay + Luke - [...] the week before their wedding, Lindsay and Luke joined me for a quintessential Vermont engagement session. As I always tell my clients, of course you probably don’t need engagement photos, but the [...]

You’ve seen this place a few times…Crosby Boat Yard is one a favorite spot along my running route, and has lent itself for a few photo opportunities in the various seasons.

The gorgeousness of the off-season, when I was just re-discovering my love for film photography: Crosby Boat Yard in the Off-Season

…Which inspired a little wedding goodness as well: Boat Yard Wedding

So this weekend, with my friend and fellow photographer Jacqueline Poussot in town, we stopped off for a little wander around. The awesome thing about visiting on a weekday is that they were open for business and let us come through for even more of an inside peek and great conversation! Below are a few snaps on my Polaroid 195 Land camera:

Chillin’ at the beach this evening, and inspired to move these video posts to the iPhone! I think it will allow me to be more casual and spontaneous with this fun element of saying hello!

I got the idea after reading about this photographer shooting an entire wedding via iPhone – what do you think? I’m sure I’m not supposed to be impressed by it, but I’m always game for trying new challenges and innovations. It works for a City Hall wedding anyway!

But I’ll stop typing… hope you enjoy!

DJ’s mentioned:

  • Flavorheard – spinning vinyl and digital, crazy amazing guys
  • JetSet Sounds – mixing classic wedding and beats, and I do mean mixing (not just intermixing)
  • DJ Davey Jones – just launching the wedding aspect of his biz, but I can connect you via e-mail/phone

“Second Shooters” joining me this month!
