Real Couples // Winter Solstice Elopement: Will + Ruby

Will and Ruby eloped on the winter solstice, December 21, 2016, at Charlotte Beach in Vermont. Will built a fire from drift wood to warm their hands, much to the confusion of their puppy, who continuously tried to start a game of fetch. A truly intimate event, the only people present were myself and the officiant while they exchanged their vows on the shores of Lake Champlain. It was incredible. 

"We chose to celebrate our marriage on the winter solstice to create a glowing memory to brighten the shortest and darkest day of the year. The lake and Charlotte Beach hold a wistful and romantic place in both of our lives. We could not have picked a more memorable and moving time, place, and photographer to engrave this moment into our memory." - Will

Meet Julia Luckett: I specialize in portraiture and photojournalism, so when photographing a wedding I’m always searching for the most dynamic way to capture the moment without interrupting. I believe that photographing weddings is a deeply personal experience, and I strive to capture the unique quality and experience of the celebration. Making images is a way I process and create beauty.
