Win or lose, there ain’t nothin’ like a DAME!!!
Yesterday’s Green Mountain Derby Dames bout with Killah Bees was awesome and it came right down to the wire as to which team would squeek out the win. OK, so it wasn’t our Gals, but it was still a total ball to watch them skate!
Check out the action from The Essex Fairgrounds and DONT miss the next opportunity to watch them in person:

I met skaters BRUISE CONTROL and NOTORIOUS B.O.T when I photographed the Green Mountain Derby Dames April Bout. BUT, two weeks later, they walked into my studio as Jaime and Nicole and asked me to shoot their wedding next September!
It has been so fun getting to know them both (AND their alter egos), but whoever they portray themselves on any given day, one thing is for sure: these women are MADLY in love. We had a ball doing their engagement session last week and I smile ear-to-ear when I look at the photos from the day–Both women are beautiful and, as a couple, they are funny, playful, sexy, tough, and have a glorious and unique view of this crazy world. I’m so happy to be part of their journey and already know that their wedding will be one of my favorites of all time!
Here’s my favorite slideshow yet…

Mariesa and Jon are about the nicest couple you could ever meet. First of all, Mariesa’s laugh is infectious- and you can’t spend two minutes with them without smiling and laughing along with them both. Lu, the dog, is adorable and the three together make up the perfect family! We decided that their engagement session should be a miniature tour of where they met and fell in love. Mariesa was working at Pac Sun and Jon was finishing up college at UVM. They met through friends and found out that they lived about eight houses away from each other, both across the street from Battery Park.
We started our tour with a walk on Church Street, taking a necessary stop at one of their old stomping grounds-Ken’s Pizza. From there, it was onto Pac Sun, the waterfront, Battery Park and a visit to both their old homes. Two hours later, and after hundreds of pictures and lots of laughter, I said goodbye to Mariesa and Jon (and Lu) until their wedding on August 8th. It will definitely be one of the summer’s finest, as the event is at Mountain Top Resort in Chittenden, with one of the most picture perfect vistas in the state! OOh, I love what I do!
(Make sure you watch the video slide show after the teaser photos. It’s the smile you need today-with one of my favorite songs by BeeBee and CeeCee!!!!)

Mary and Mindy have been together for 22 years! They, along with their two dogs, Jovi and Nikko, are already a family and living a beautiful life in New Hampshire. But now, with the recent passing of the New Hampshire Marriage Equality Act, these two lovebirds are finally getting hitched! I will be shooting their wedding next July in New Hampshire and last week the family made the 90 minute trip to Burlington for their engagement session.
Since we didnt want to traumatize the pups–both loveable rescue dogs, of course!- we decided to spend a couple of hours in the park, just enjoying the sunshine and the sounds of spring. It was such a fun afternoon annd Jovi and Niko had a ball! To Mary and Mindy: You are both awesome and I can’t wait to watch you exchanging your vows…And I’ll keep an eye on you on Facebook to see how the wedding plans are coming!

Friday night, over 200 people turned out at the Sunset Ballroom for the 2nd annual dance and auction to raise money for the The Carrie Premsagar Foundation. The foundation, named after Carrie Premsagar (cancer survivor and woman extraordinaire!) is dedicated to meeting the needs of families dealing with cancer and other life threatening diseases. This includes providing education, financial assistance, teaching advocacy and funding research.
It was a wonderful night and the pictures show just how fun it was. Jim Provost of Moonlight Entertainment was the night’s DJ and it sure was a dancing crowd. ALL PHOTOS CAN BE PURCHASED AS HIGH RESOLUTION ENLARGEMENTS and ALL PROCEEDS WILL BENEFIT THE FOUNDATION... so enjoy the show and then, for all of you who were there, follow the link at the end of the blog posting to see all 266 photos and perhaps order a couple!
