We’re enjoying a cup of tea on this chilly Spring day as we sit down to admire the latest GORGEOUS wedding album to arrive at Riverside Farm from VT photographer Sabin Gratz! Enjoy these pics and his passion for Vermont wedding photography in his own words below:
“As a wedding photographer, I am often asked about my favorite wedding locations. While many places in the world have produced magnificent backdrops for my photography, Vermont provides me with an almost endless range of settings and conditions for telling great wedding stories. I was born and raised here and I think my love and understanding of the state’s landscape, weather, and attitude has helped me to make some of my most memorable images right in my own backyard.
One of my new favorite places to shoot is Riverside Farm in Pittsfield. It’s truly a one of a kind location. From the moment you arrive you can tell that owners Courtney and Joe Desena have spent years harnessing the quaint character of a small Vermont town while infusing the farm with their own personal style. They have several beautifully renovated New England barns filled with details that I’ve never seen anywhere else: A spiral staircase made out of a huge old tree trunk, authentic antiques gracing nearly every surface, vintage cars – it all screams a level of class and character that both a old-time Vermonter and a New York City fashionista can appreciate.
While shooting weddings in Vermont over the past ten years, I’ve realized that my craft grows as I work with what the state and the people who make up its wedding fabric have to offer me. The styles and sensibilities of many of the people who own wedding venues in Vermont is a huge part of why weddings are such a success for me here. Courtney, Joe, and their crew are a great example of people who contribute greatly to Vermont’s distinct personality. I look forward to telling many more wedding stories at Riverside Farm in the years to come.”
