Emily and Colin brought us to Waitsfield, Vermont for their beautiful wedding at the Mad River Barn. It had been a few years since we’d traveled to Vermont, so we couldn’t wait. I love photographing in Maine, but the incredible Vermont countryside is a welcome change of scenery for us.

These two were an absolute dream to photograph together. You could see the calmness set in on both of their faces during the first look, when they were finally together. It was also easy to see that when they were laughing or smiling, they really meant it. Their entire faces lit up. As a photographer, there’s nothing better.

There were so many times that I choked up behind my camera, watching how these two love each other, and how their friends and family love them as well. Emily also happens to have a heartbreakingly-beautiful cry face. I noticed this multiple times throughout the day, but two times really stood out to me. The first time was during the ceremony when Colin read his vows to her, and the second time was during the sweet speeches later in the night. Perfect tears would stream down her cheeks, and she looked like a star from a classic film. My cry face isn’t nearly as elegant!

Here are some favorites from the day. Emily and Colin, thank you so much for having us!
