Hannah and Andy are getting married this fall at the Stowe Mountain Resort, so it was perfect to do their engagement portraits around Stowe.

I love black and white images because they are timeless and elegant in their beauty. I often provide both color and black and white files of the same image.

Andy wasn't a big fan of the blanket and wasn't too sure about being in front of the camera. But he was a trouper, and his wonderful relationship with Hannah is evident in all the images.

I sent 170 final images to Hannah and Andy after this shoot. It worked out to one great portrait every 30 seconds. They were so wonderful and fun together!

Will you marry me?

John emailed several weeks ago to ask if I could inconspicuously photograph his marriage proposal to Cristin at a beautiful location—a spot on dead end gravel road with a great view of Mt. Snow.

It was such a privilege to be there for such an amazing life-changing moment in John and Cristin's relationship.

I was using a telephoto lens, so I couldn't hear what they were saying, but when John got down on his knee, I knew he was doing it right. And when Kristin first smiled, I knew what her answer was.

Even from a distance of 50 feet, I could tell that John had gotten Cristin a beautiful engagement ring.
