In early May, after four weeks of bicycle-powered skiing through the Alps of Switzerland, Austria and Italy, we finally gave into gravity once last time as we rolled out of the mountains toward Zurich. We skied delectable corn snow in the morning, coasted through orchards of blossoming fruit trees after lunch, and camped among songbirds one last time by a river choked with snow melt. By morning, our surroundings down in the forested foothills had us feeling like we could have already been right at home in Vermont. Then a local train whistled by… Vermont was still a long way off.

Thanks and enjoy! – Brian and Emily

Winter Wedding, Full Moon at the Round Barn Farm

We photograph one or two weddings each year at the historic Round Barn Farm Inn in Waitsfield, Vermont. It’s a beautiful and top-notch venue, and it’s always a pleasure for us to work with the Round Barn’s friendly and hard-working staff. Sarah and John’s recent wedding coincided with a rising full moon, which by 8pm cast a subtle blue hue on the barn and the world surrounding it. Sarah and John, along with some of their friends and family, wandered out to enjoy the moonlight and stars. It wasn’t long though before they were chased by the chilly winter air back to the warm and cozy environment inside the barn. – Brian


Photo of the Month – March: Arctic Lava

We call this image “Arctic Lava”. It was early May few years back, and the midnight sun was hovering above a 5000 yr old lava flow in western Iceland, less than one hundred miles from the Arctic Circle. We were in the region working in partnership with Iceland Tourism, exploring opportunities for backcountry skiing and adventure tourism, while investigating the development of a future national park on the Hornstrandir Peninsula – a place that could some day become Iceland and Europe’s largest protected wild area.

Camera Info: Canon 5D, 200mm, ISO 160, 1/125, f5.6

New Wedding Portfolio to Share

We’re in the very early planning and research stages of a long-overdue website upgrade. (With some luck, we’ll have a beautiful new website to share in the fall of 2012!) In the meanwhile, we’ve been sifting through the hundreds of thousands of photos we’ve captured in recent years, and building out an image library that we (and our clients) can tap for an increasing array of projects. On the wedding front, we’ve put together a new wedding portfolio to share, which can be viewed as a simple online slideshow. You can access this through the Weddings page on our main website, www.EmberPhoto.com, or through this direct link here.

Thanks and enjoy the photos.
-Brian and Emily
