3 Documentary Wedding Photographers...

I'm a second-generation wedding photographer, living out my dream of documenting community in the mountains of Vermont and New Hampshire and photographing unique weddings around New England. As a teenager, I spent summers assisting my parents with photographing weddings, learning just as much how to run as business as how to be at the right place at the right time to capture unique moments. While working toward my degree in Photojournalism at the Rochester Institute of Technology, I began photographing weddings on my own, eventually bringing along my now-husband, Jeff Porter, a fellow photojournalism student who shares my love of spontaneous adventure. We now live in the mountains of Vermont, where I run the photography business and freelance for local and national publications including the New York Times, Vox, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, Seven Days Vermont, and The Valley News. In addition to The Valley News, I've worked as a photographer for The Erie Times News, CITY Newspaper of Rochester, NY, and The Patriot News in Harrisburg, PA. I've received awards from the National Press Photographers Association, The New England Press Association, The Vermont Press Association, and The New Hampshire Press Association.

With a love of documentary photography that touches everything I do, I have had the privilege of photographing hundred of weddings throughout New England since 1994. I approach my work with respect for the subject, gentle humor and letting events play out naturally in time. I began photography at 13 years old, growing up in South Dakota. After studying photojournalism at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, I have been a part of the Valley News in Lebanon, N.H., since 1989. I am now the photo editor in a newsroom full of talented and funny journalists. I have done photography for a dozen books, including The Joy of Keeping Chickens and Harvest: A Year in the Life of an Organic Farm. My photographs have also been exhibited throughout Vermont, including a one-person show at the Agency of Agriculture in Montpelier, Vermont. [Tunbridge Wedding Photographer]

Vermont documentary wedding and elopement photography by Josh Kuckens, of Burlington

I grew up in Long Island and central Connecticut before going to school for Photojournalism at the Rochester Institute of Technology. There, I learned the value and application of narrative, documentary photography. I've since held photography positions at newspapers, high-end event companies, commercial outlets, and educational institutions. I employ these narrative skills in all of my work, but weddings are a natural fit. My goal is to tell the story of your day, as inconspicuously as possible. I find that weddings present some of the best opportunities for intimate, storytelling photography. in 2018 I became an Associate Photographer with Jacob & Megan Hannah of Hannah Photography in Lincoln, VT. When not shooting weddings, I work as a staff photographer at Vermont's Capital City newspaper, the Barre-Montpelier Times Argus. [Burlington Wedding Photographer]

So how do you infuse your wedding with all the romance but none of the fuss? ALONE AT LAST Many couples these days are opting to elope rather than planning a large wedding. For the no-...Read more
Traditionally speaking, often times it is the couple’s families who help pay for their wedding.

WHAT EXACTLY DOES IT MEAN TO ELOPE?

Oftentimes when people are considering a venue for their weddings, they search for a location away from home, whether that be ten minutes or ten hours, all just to find what they already have: a place that holds meaning for them, that feels comfortable, or that they find special and memorable. But what could hold more memory, meaning, and importance than your own home? For those looking for that perfect venue, it may not be any further than beyond your threshold.Read more
