After a week of vacation in Maine with my wife Leah and her family, I headed up to Vermont to photograph Caitlin and Matt’s wedding at The Ponds at Bolton Valley. The weather forecast was ominous, but I don’t recall hearing a single complaint and I am not finding a single picture in my edit in which Caitlin is not smiling.
I photographed Kristen and Greg’s wedding two years ago (the couple on the right of the shot above). Caitlin is Greg’s younger sister, and Kristen introduced Caitlin to Matt. I received the highest compliment I can imagine when Greg and Caitlin’s mother Kathy called me up right after Caitlin and Matt got engaged. Kathy was trying to decide on a date for the wedding and wanted to make sure I was available to photograph it! It is a great honor to me that the Connollys will have my photographs like the one above on their walls from two weddings – I like to think of the children and grandchildren that will see them, and stories that will be told. That is what motivates me to do what I do.
It was a good thing that we did all of the family and bridal party group pictures before the ceremony, because a very strong storm blew in. You can see that the smile is still there on Caitlin’s face when the storm arrives though. For the next three hours it poured rain!
