Summer is the perfect season for elopements, and Lindsay and Erik’s romantic Shelburne elopement remains in my memory as one of my top favorites. The whimsy, and low-key calmness, was immensely special. As a Vermont elopement photographer, I was thrilled to capture their special day and the beautiful moments they shared.
The day was hot, with the sun beaming down on us as we made our way to the picturesque location in Shelburne. As I pulled into the driveway, a kids’ plastic lawnmower was being utilized by a hard-working toddler in a diaper with a beautiful golden retriever keeping a watchful eye nearby.
Lindsay and Erik were beaming with joy and love for each other, and it was a privilege to witness and capture their intimate ceremony. The couple’s son refused to wear shoes, which added a charming and playful touch to the photos.
The couple chose Shelburne as their elopement location because of its natural beauty and serene atmosphere. The cabin was tucked away, without houses or roads nearby. There was a small pond on the property with cattails that their dog loved swimming in. The rolling hills and lush greenery provided the perfect backdrop for the photos. I was able to capture truly stunning shots.
Despite the heat, Lindsay and Erik were stunners. Lindsay’s stripped-down makeup and hair look complimented her classic dress. Erik’s gorgeous suit must have nearly killed him, but he did not complain or get heat stroke, somehow.
As a Vermont elopement photographer, I’m always thrilled to be a part of such intimate and personal moments. Lindsay and Erik’s summer elopement in Shelburne was truly gorgeous. I am grateful to have been a part of their love story.
If you’re looking for a Vermont elopement photographer to capture your special day, I would be honored to be a part of it.
