Shelburne Farms Engagement Session

Recently Vicki and I had the great pleasure of meeting up with Joslyn and Erik, one of our wedding couples. They decided to have their engagement photography session at Shelburne Farms in Shelburne, VT. This whole area, just south of Burlington, is incredibly beautiful. Lots of scenic farm land and quaint villages overlooking Lake Champlain with the Adirondack Mountains in the distance. Shelburne Farms may just be the best part of this whole region. An incredible 1600 acres of magnificent terrain right on the shore of the lake with the most impressive barns you’ll ever see and an amazing home (now inn) built by one of the Vanderbilts!

To say we had an abundance of great locations for a fun photo session is an understatement! We started before sunrise (ouch!) at the Farm barn and took a quick walk up to the top of Lone Tree Hill. After a few photos of Joslyn and Erik and a few minutes of enjoying the incredible view of the mountains on the other side of the lake, we headed down for the sunrise. We timed it perfectly and were able to capture some of the best images of  the day behind the barn.

Joslyn had grown up in the area and visited the farms many times. We went to several of her favorite places and had a great time photographing along the shore, at The Coach Barn, Farm Barn, and at the inn. We’re really looking forward to Joslyn and Erik’s wedding this fall at The Mount Washington Hotel. It’s going to be a blast!

Below are a few images from Joslyn and Erik’s engagement session. Enjoy!
