GET TO KNOW ME
HI! I am Idena ( insert big warm smile here)
I believe that human emotion is the most powerful and beautiful force in this world and it's my goal to capture it, preserve it, and show its raw beauty. My clients are never just clients to me. My clients are moms, dads, sons, daughters, grandparents, best friends, all who deserve a memory like no other.
I believe with all my heart that pictures and the memories they so well preserve are priceless.
Human connections will always spark my interest and creativity and capturing them will always be my WHY.
When working with me, you may, very quickly, find out a few things: I loooove coffee, unique venues, happy tears and forehead kisses (great mix of stuff...). I'm always up for adventuring, which I‘ve been fortunate to do while photographing countless weddings throughout the United States. Traveling the world with my husband and son, while being able to do what I love every day, is MY DREAM
I like to think that I am not a cookie cutter photographer. I truly believe that each couple is special and each wedding day is unique.
I am all about capturing the whole story and I hope that my passion for people shows that.
No matter who you are, what your personality is, or what you look like, I genuinely believe that you are beautiful. I have said it before, and...I will be bold and put it in print: there is no such thing as “photogenic”. Every person I have ever met is beautiful to me.
I wish everyone could see themselves through my eyes.
Your story and the way you live reflect who you are and I am so excited to share that with you.
I live and breathe for the simple joys of everyday life. When you hire me, you hire someone who will laugh with you, cry with you and swoon over your beautiful day with you, while not missing a beat.

My main goal is preserving your memories and for you to have beautiful pictures to look back at. I believe with all my heart that what I do is important and that everyone should be able to afford it. Because of this, I am very open and reasonable.
So, let's get together for coffee, or tea...or cake (I'll take cake over all other options) and let's see what I can offer for your budget. We could easily do this online too, if that works better for you.
Perfect for engagements, couples, families, children and all other adventure seekers.
These photoshoots are my absolute favorites. They are very far from stiff and posed. You get to make beautiful life long memories on the day of your photoshoot while having me around to capture it all.
An adventure, can be whatever you want it to be.
Maybe you and your significant other are avid hikers and you think of proposing on top of a mountain. I want to be there!
Maybe you have a beautiful back yard and you want to capture your children on a bug hunt…
Whatever YOUR adventure is, I want to capture it.
Pricing starts at $500 and includes:
My aim is to make sure you receive everything you want from me as your wedding photographer. For this reason, I start with a pre wedding consultation that allows us to discuss your specific needs, answering any questions you may have and explaining a little more about myself and the way I work. I am familiar with some of the best and beautiful wedding venues in Vermont and working on always connecting with the best wedding vendors around as I am a true believer of "community over competition".
Pricing starts at $2800.
Full coverage of your event includes:
(*up to 35 guests, 3 hour minimum)
Pricing starts at $950
So you decided a big wedding is not exactly what you would enjoy and would rather elope in a beautiful place together, maybe just the two of you, maybe together with close family and friends. I will make myself “invisible” and respect your moment while also capturing all the love and excitement.
We can spend the day hiking up a mountain to your perfect spot by a remote waterfall, or simply have a private ceremony in the backyard of a cabin. Its your special day- you can have it be whatever you want it to be.
If you are planning to celebrate somewhere far, say …Iceland, be sure to ask about my special rates for destination intimate weddings and elopements. I have a big list of places I would like to have the opportunity to photograph and I am an avid traveler.
I believe that the YOU shines best unposed. I want to capture you and your family or significant other, as naturally as possible, on a days adventure or even at home. I love to wait for the love to unfold. For family sessions, we could get together for a relaxed play date in the park, have a picnic, read stories in the comfort of your home, or even have a tickle session (yes! tickle session please :). For an engagement session we could grab a coffee in your favorite spot or go on a hike. For "day in the life" sessions I like to sit back and watch you at home as you interact with the little ones, capturing even something as simple as the way they sleep. The little tiny details of your life that are so dear to your heart, those are the memories I would like to capture for you.
If you had a chance to look at my wedding packages than you know :) 2 weeks guarantee for all my wedding clients. If you are thinking of booking a family/ adventure session, you will receive your pictures within a week. I always try to give a 'sneak-peek' here and there so that you can be excited about it. The pictures will be available to download immediately, directly to your computer. You also have the ability to share the gallery to your family and friends and they can also order prints directly from my website. Prints and products will be delivered approximately 3 weeks after you place your order.
That depends on the type of photo session we have. Its hard to keep so many memories to myself and not give them to their rightful owners. I tend to be very generous with the amount of pictures I give /shoot. It usually depends on the time we spend together. For family and portrait sessions I average about 50 pictures/gallery for weddings, about 600
Yup! All the images included in your online gallery will be edited. Exposure and color correction are the two main edits done. Please do not ask for all raw files. I will have to respectfully say no to that request... :)
Just send me an email at email@example.com with all the lovely details and I will get back to you asap. I would need to know what kind of session you are interested in, the approximate date and if you have a specific place/location in mind. Once we agree on the date, I will forward a booking form and give you all the information you need in order to hold your session. I do get booked up well in advance, so if at all possible, it is best to book early. That being said, I do love an impromptu photo session here and there so don't hesitate to contact me.
Chances are, if you are up for a photo shoot on a random Tuesday evening, you are my kind of adventurous folk and I would like to meet you :)
...we're going to have the best time!
