About Buffy Dekmar Photography


Hello and thank you for visiting my site! I am a wedding and lifestyle photographer, inspired by people and places. I love observing personalities, the connections that people share, and the subtle details that characterize each event and gathering. Together with my husband Chris, I work to capture these elements in my art. Chris and I believe in timeless, pure, emotive photographs–printed–just like the ones that depict our own family's history. For this and many other reasons, we choose film as our primary medium.

We shoot film because it keeps us true to the essence of real photography. It provokes an aesthetic that cannot be replaced or emulated. And film photos just have so much soul! The most thrilling aspect of what we do is to capture real moments, and shooting film requires us to stop and really relate to what is unfurling before our lens–to watch and wait for the moment instead of merely shooting around it.

Each wedding, couple, child, and family is different. We delight in getting to know our clients in a way that allows us to capture the elements of their lives, through photography, in a way that depicts who they are and eternalizes the feelings, details, and relationships that they want to always remember. We work calmly and deliberately, but we also love to have fun! Our work is known for its organic authenticity, soft understated elegance, and timeless fine art quality.

Working out of Burlington, Vermont, Chris and I have been photographing weddings and children since 2009. I have studied under Jose Villa, and have been honored to have my work featured on several wedding and lifestyle blogs and online magazines, including Style Me Pretty, The Wedding Chicks, and A Paper Proposal.

I look forward to hearing about your wedding or lifestyle event and hope to help you memorialize it beautifully.

Be well,
