Ember Photography is a husband and wife photography team in Moretown, Vermont.
"Ember Photography specializes in outdoor adventure, weddings, photojournalism, portraiture, architectural and marketing photography. We also shoot for a wide variety of editorial, commercial and non-profit clients worldwide. Ultimately, we enjoy photographing anything that truly catches our eyes.
Lucky enough to have been born and raised in New England, we have learned to embrace Mother Nature’s many moods. After all, says a dear friend of ours, 'If there’s no rain… there are no rainbows.' Since meeting in 1998, we’ve shaped our lives around a simple desire to visually capture and communicate the beauty and essence of this incredible planet and its people. And whether we are on a mountain top in Arctic Greenland or documenting a wedding close to home in Vermont, the world never ceases to inspire us.
Today, our photographic work is widely published and relied upon by a great variety of editorial, non-profit and commercial clients locally and around the globe – a list including Patagonia Inc., Outside Magazine, Winter Wildlands Alliance, Iceland Tourism, the New York Times, Mad River Glen and many others. With respect to weddings, we work closely as a team, and schedule only 10-12 weddings each year. Deeply in love ourselves, weddings are one of our favorite subjects, and we greatly enjoy documenting these incredible celebrations of life, love and family.
Most know us for our love for nature, travel and outdoor adventure – especially human-powered outdoor adventure. No doubt, these subjects drive much of our work, while providing excellent fodder for our own series of multi-media presentations. Since 2001, we’ve presented shows to over one hundred venues in New England and across the country. Additionally, we exhibit our strongest work in a fine-art setting at several galleries, stores and gathering places throughout New England."

Larken Bunce is a photographer in Middlesex, Vermont.
"I am a clinical herbalist, educator, gardener, writer, and photographer deeply inspired by a life-long love affair with plants. Since 1994, I’ve studied traditional views of health and nature in tandem with scientific understandings of plants and people, exploring our innate tendency towards health and the profound impact of synchronizing our lives with the rhythms of the natural world. My practice and teaching draw wisdom from various systems of body, mind and spirit-centered healing, including Western herbal medicine, classical Chinese medicine, aromatherapy, flower essence therapy, mind-body and somatic techniques, and whole foods nutrition. My work is rooted in the premise that the heart of healing lies in remembering that we belong to each other and to the land. In all I do, I hope to increase awareness of the capacity of not only medicinal plants, but of all nature and wildness, to sustain and heal."
Nature Mandala Art
"Vermont is a place that is blessed with a bounty of beautiful forests, fields and gardens.
As a gardener and herbalist, I am inspired by this beauty to gather flowers, seeds, leaves, stems and other plant materials to create unique and one-of-a-kind nature mandalas.
This impermanent art is a meditation on really noticing the plants throughout the seasons, their exquisite details and symmetry.
Each piece may last only a few hours or a few days. One photograph is selected and then the mandala is cast into the winds with a one word meditation, intention or aspiration.
It brings me great joy to hear that this art inspires others to look a bit closer at the beauty in our world … and perhaps, to even create a nature mandala too."
Design Frame of Mind
Aryk Tomlinson of Design Frame of Mind is a photographer in Morrisville, Vermont.
"I am most comfortable immersed in nature with my dog Brixton at my side and camera in my hand. Photography is an ever-growing passion that I have been intrigued with over half my life. Being able to compose our complex world and present my unique perspective gives me continued satisfaction. I view my surroundings carefully in order to see what is most visually appealing and make a photo out of it. My goal is to create striking images that can be admired by all, and in turn to inspire those to view their surroundings differently and find the ever-present beauty in them."
