2015 Wedding Photography Services
In January of 2015 one of our key wedding photographers slipped on the
ice and severely fractured her leg. Due to the very lengthy time required to heal and regain full use of the leg, we
find ourselves unable to provide full wedding photography services for the better part of the 2015 season. As a result
we are no longer accepting wedding photography services assignments until further notice.
services, such as portraiture, etc., that can be properly done with one photographer remain unaffected. Thank you for
Ayer Photography Earns Judges
March 22 - 24, 2014, the Vermont Professional Photographers held their
annual convention at the Stoweflake Resort in Stowe, Vermont. Along with several national speakers, they also held their annual
print competition. The judges are from out-of-state and are certified at the national level to judge PPA's international
print competition. This year our entry, entitled, "One Man Band," was scored "worthy of merit," capturing a blue ribbon,
and was named a "Judges Choice."

Rock Band Guitarist Portraits
For something a little different, we shot some portraits of the lead
guitarist / vocalist from the local rock band, Astrocat. It was fun to explore some edgier lighting and show another
side to our art.

Are you an aspiring musician? Old or young, it does not matter. Classical,
rock, jazz, alternative, give us a call, we would love to be your photographer. On the other end of the spectrum, we

New Gallery Site Is Here !!!!
We told you it was coming ... and after several long days of learning
all the ins and outs of the new SmugMug platform, the migration of our image galleries is now unveiled! I say unveiled,
rather than complete, because like so many changes of this magnitude, it is difficult to complete that much in a short amount
of time. But, it is now live and operational, enabling us to stop supporting two platforms and now move into the future
on just one.
If you take a look at it, you will see that our new gallery site is now an actual
site, rather than just a database of galleries into which we directed you from time to time. Already you will notice
functionality and the ability to integrate back to our other business sites in a much more seamless way than was possible
in the past. More will be coming, but we are pleased to announce this significant step forward.
the way, while we have tried to check and proof all the text and many many new links, but if you find one that seems to go
to a strange place or does not work at all, or find some jibberish in place of coherent text, please let us know so we can
fix it. Hope you like our new site.
For current customers, you will notice that some things
work a little differently and we are trying to get around and update our various help screens. If you have a question
about the new ways of navigating and accessing certain functions, please give me a call.
the most significant change for current customers is that there is no longer a "BUY" button. Instead, you will find
"ADD TO CART" buttons in strategic locations. Clicking on these will take you to the ordering screens that you should
be familiar with.

Imaging Excellence Awards
Print Competition held at the 2013 Annual Convention of the Vermont Professional Photographers we were recipients of Awards
For Imaging Excellence for all of our print and album entries. While we have won these awards for our print
entries at past conventions, this was the first year we entered any of our wedding album designs. We were delighted
that both of our entered wedding albums earned coveted ribbons.

Gone, But Not Forgotten
|A Friend Has Passed
On April 11, 2013 our beloved Bichon Frise, Jeremiah, passed away just 16 days shy of his 7th
birthday. Most of our wedding and many of our portrait customers will remember Jeremiah, as he greeted everyone who
came to visit with exuberant joy! In his 22 + month battle with Lymphoma, he bravely endured countless rounds of chemo
therapy and various treatments to manage the side effects. At times he was virtually cancer free, but in the end the
cancer won, as it so often does. He will be sorely missed.
New Album Lines
are pleased to introduce TWO (2) new album styles. We showed our first samples of our new PROVENCE album
line at the Bridal Expo in November. To our delight, the next three weddings we booked all selected one of these
beautiful albums as their style of choice - before we even had a complete set of samples to show them!
At the Bridal Expo in February we showed our first samples of our new top-of-the-line CHAMPAGNE album
. It has a stunning aluminescent cover framed in leather that caught everyone's attention that passed our display table
at the Capitol Plaza Hotel. Judging by their reactions, it looks like we have another winner and are excited to show
it at our next Wedding Photo Consultation.
We now have a complete set of samples of all of our new albums and would love to show them to you in person. Make
an appointment to come and see these beautiful albums in person!
