Hello, I'm Aaron Collins.
I'm a photographer.
Weddings are kind of my thing! But I also shoot portraits, real estate, and a whole bunch of other stuff.
Born in Lowell, Massachusetts I decided to migrate north to the Champlain Valley of Vermont where I discovered my love of photography. So much beauty to be seen all year round and I just couldn't help but capture it to share with my friends and family back home in MA to show them what they were missing!
As it turned out, all this time I was missing the great Commonwealth of Massachusetts so after 12 years of roaming the wilderness of the Green Mountains consuming many pints of Ben and Jerry's and Heady Topper I decided to move back home.
Without those beautiful mountains (and all that ice cream) to keep me occupied I discovered how much I love taking photos of people! How was I missing this all along?
My perfectionist nature means I just keep learning as much as I can and obsessing over how to make beautiful images that people will cherish. Making people happy with pictures is the best feeling in the world.
Some other things about me:
I married a wonderful woman from Minnesota. Whenever our families visit each other there's usually a fair amount of time on both sides spent making fun of each other's accents.
We have a brown dog named Vinnie who is starting to turn gray around the muzzle but he still thinks he's a puppy. That is until he stops running around and has to nap for six hours to recuperate. You probably have already seen him somewhere on this site if you got this far.
We also have three black cats, ranging in age from 8 to 18!
I really like Legos. Somehow though, the older I get the more expensive the awesome Lego sets are! What is happening?
I cook bacon in the oven. Seriously - try it. Put some parchment paper on a cookie sheet, then toss on the bacon, throw it in the oven at about 400 degrees for maybe 14 minutes. You'll never go back. Perfectly cooked every time. Plus you can get like ten strips on there at once! Rather than those hangy-outy pieces that don't quite fit in the skillet!
