Vermont Wedding Photography Testimonials


I feel so beyond lucky to have this job.  Yes, it's hard work, but it's so humbling and fulfilling to see how my work effect my clients.  Check out some of my past client's Love Notes... I wouldn't be here without them!

Bride and Groom Just Married

"Barbee and her assistant did an amazing job photographing our wedding. She helped us find a package that worked for us, as she had to travel from Vermont/New England to Chicago to photograph. She took the time to help us work within budget, and her work is amazing. Barbee seems like a passionate artist and is definitely a people person. My wedding party stated many times how awesome and fun she was. This is paired with Barbee's professionalism and "help" when her subjects (sometimes dozens of family members made up of children and elderly) aren't being as cooperative as they could be! I also felt like she knew when to give us suggestions, and when she let us run with an idea. Her candid photos of dancing and dining were also amazing, and my wife and are very happy we went with Barbee/Owl's Iris Photography. We received a sneak peak very soon after the wedding and our digital and physical copies of photos in a timely manner. She also did a great job at getting lots of photos of the most important people and most important moments. I feel like the hours she was photographing were used very wisely."

Sami & Travis, August 2019

We've been with Barbee through it all! Engagement, wedding, maternity, house selling and now family photos - she has been amazing, easy going and fun. Barbee made sure to spend the time getting to know us and helping us feel comfortable in front of the camera so that in our special moments she could capture our authentic connections. Barbee has been flexible, especially during our wedding when timing all went wrong and we couldn't make it to our main off site for photos. She quickly came up with creative ideas to give us the variety we hoped for. The final photos never cease to amaze us! We cannot recommend Barbee enough for all your photography needs!

Owl's Iris was the perfect photographer for my wedding! Barbee was very responsive to all of my inquiries and professional during my wedding throughout all of the photoshoots. The pictures turned out amazing, and they were ready so much earlier than I expected! I would recommend Owl's Iris to anyone looking for a photographer for really any event.
Thank you!

Barbee was wonderful to work with, and made our engagement shoot a really fun experience for two people who aren't great in front of a camera. I would absolutely love to work with her again!

Emily & Simon, 2017

Barbee did a wonderful, fantastic job for a maternity shoot for my husband and I. She made wonderful recommendations for different places to shoot the pictures within the area that we were at and made the whole process easy for both of us. We loved having the opportunity to do a mini-photo shoot. A half hour was the perfect amount of time! The pictures turned out fabulous. We love the colors and the artistic angles that she chose.

Barbee caught the feeling of the day and created photos that could be used in a magazine article because they are so beautiful. I am thrilled and highly recommend Owl’s Iris photography.

Trish & Randy, July 2019

Barbee is an outstanding photographer that turns a client's vision into a reality. She provided colorful backgrounds that suited my needs perfectly. She captured my personality and image so well that my head-shots communicated my passion and excitement for starting a business venture in diversity and inclusion consulting. I definitely will be using Owl's Iris Photography services in the future.

We first worked with Barbee for our Engagment photos and instantly felt at ease working with her. She is really down to earth and also professional. Right after meeting her we knew we wanted her to shoot our wedding and we could not have been happier with our experience and her work. She is great at giving you some direction, while also just letting you just be yourself and enjoy the moment. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a fun, artistic, and dependable photographer for whatever the occasion!

Carrie & Tom, 2018

Worked with Barbee for a family portrait sitting. She was responsive, affordable and fun to work with. Delivered nice hi-res images in a timely manner. We'd definitely work with her again.

Barbee is absolutely incredible! She joined us for our women's retreat in Bali to capture all of the wonderful moments and, wow, she amazed us. I will be hiring her to come back for another Shakti Sanctury Retreat and to take my maternity photos! The best!

"Barbee proved to be a talented and intuitive photographer and a very easy person to work with.

I had never worked with a photographer before so I didn't know how to communicate what I was looking for in product photography of my jewelry, and I feared my inability to communicate my needs would lead to being disappointed with the results.

But Barbee hit it out of the park.

She picked up on all the little details, intuited my aesthetic from materials, props, and past content, and styled the jewelry well without direction. Barbee even made a cute little GIF as a bonus, which we had never talked about.

Barbee was a great communicator, super professional, and really chill. She was adamant that she wanted feedback and wanted to do whatever she could to make sure I was happy. I had no feedback, her work was perfect. Work with her!"​

Barbee did the most incredible job on our engagement photos. I could not have asked for a more professional and accommodating person to capture our special moment. She always responded quickly throughout the planning process and edited/uploaded our pictures quickly. The photos she captured were nothing short of perfect. I cannot recommend her enough. Thank you Barbee!

Barbee (Owl's Iris Photography) took the photographs at our elopement on a cold but beautiful February day in Vermont. Leading up to the event, she was very communicative over email and also available for video chat as a "meet and greet" since we were coming in from out of town. She commented that she was scoping out the area around our venue (Shacksbury Cider) in advance to make sure she had photoshoot locations in mind. On the day of our elopement, she was punctual, attentive, and ready with ideas and locations. Barbee is incredibly friendly, laidback, and creative, and her artistry is reflected in her photographs. Barbee provided sneak peek photos within a couple days of our event and delivered the final photos within a few weeks. Her price was fair and she was flexible with the coverage hours needed for our event. I continue to follow Barbee's photography and artistic adventures on social media and really love what she creates!
