when leah from black dog affairs (btw! a wonderful vermont wedding planner) first contacted me to say that lake champlain had frozen over, we knew immediately we had to plan something freaking incredible. with the help of some amazing vermont vendors who all gave a resounding hell! yes! to helping out, we were able to put together a gorgeous and intimate couples session on the lake.
although it was about ten degrees, the vendor team braved the cold as we spent two hours sipping on java and soaking in the beauty of a total frozen lake. it was one of the most beautiful and most organic shoots i’ve had the pleasure of photographing –– simply relying on the natural beauty that surrounded us to make our vision come to life. we wrapped up just as the sky was beginning to darken, and we all had to stop a minute just to take in the spectacular stillness of a frozen lake champlain.
