Before this years wedding season kicks in, I’m revisiting some of my fave weddings from 2018.

Alison & Jerry’s wedding was definitely a favorite! They had a destination wedding in Alison’s hometown of Stowe, VT. I love weddings where almost everyone who attends lives somewhere else, and ends up spending a few days relaxing (well, sort of, there is a wedding happening! ; ), away from home and work, and just enjoying themselves with family and friends. It really sets the mood for the wedding day! I always find these weddings super relaxed and fun (which is THE best) ! Also, Alison ( & her family) and Jerry were so happy, excited and easy to work with…. and they included their dog, Lola… can’t go wrong with that : )

Event planner: NJoy events

Hair & Makeup: Sarah Crowley of Finishing Touches

The ceremony and reception were held right on Alison’s family property.

 

After my busy season, the holidays, and moving, I finally made it back to the shelter for some doggy pics! These are just some of the pups looking for their forever homes at the  Saratoga County Animal Shelter  There are A LOT of dogs at the shelter right now. I photographed 30 +, but you won’t see them all in this web-post, as some are not ready for adoption… but keeping checking the shelter web site for updates. Also, please contact the shelter directly for info on any of the dogs below. Thank you for looking and please share!

My first For Love of Dog Session was a success! Looking forward to doing more of these! There’s something about a clean image, no distractions, of your pup! The texture of their fur, the expression of their face and the light in their eyes. I feel like everyone should have one… all about THE DOG that you love : ) Even better if you jump in for a few shots : ) THANK YOU to everyone who dropped by the studio! If you’re interested in one of these session, drop me an email hbt@hbtphoto.com : )

Very thankful to Saratoga Foto for renting his space to me! If you’re a photographer who is looking to rent some studio time, Alan, of Saratoga Foto is your guy! Look him up!

SUPER excited to announce  For  Love of Dog Studio Sessions! I’ve been wanting to do Dog studio photography (again) for years!
