Happy groom preparing for first look in New EnglandPhotographing a groom on his wedding day is a balance between making him look cool and embracing his own personality. Ideally groom portraits will show an excited groom eager for his wedding day, but with a dash of debonair, confidence beaming from each image. Wearing a tuxedo for upscale Vermont weddings pulls a certain sophistication into the day's events that can feel lacking with a simple suit, but we highly recommend purchasing a tux outright rather than renting one. As a Vermont wedding photographer we see a wide range of styles, everything from extremely casual backyard weddings to lavishly decorated black tie events, but the one thing they all have in common is that there is a love for Vermont and her unique environment, the warmth of the people who live there, and a certain magic associated with having a destination wedding in the area. New England has a wide range of terrain, including beautiful waterways, stunning mountainsides, and everything from beautiful grand hotels to intimate country inns. We love photographing weddings in Vermont, New Hampshire, and throughout the rest of the New England states, embracing the natural wonder and delicious local bounty during the summer months. Combining black tie dress and décor with organic and local rustic farm fare is perfection: no foodie would skip a wedding with that pairing, and the farm to table trend was the norm at Vermont weddings well before it became popular in cities around the country.
