Some couples really know how to pull all the perfect little wedding details together, and Sara and Josh are one of those couples. Somehow those details fit perfectly with the foggy day we had on Peaks Island for their wedding, even though they planned this wedding ‘from away’. Just look at those shoes, his message on his suit collar, her dress, and the custom ties, oh my!

Thankfully it was just fog, and not the all-out thunderstorms that had been predicted. I hate to think we may have missed these epic photo ops that the fog granted us. I’ve shot many weddings on Peaks, but this one felt different thanks to the moody light and weather. I loved it! I also loved the fact that Sara’s grandparents served as the flower girl and ring bearer, I think everyone got a bit choked up when they walked in.

Rather than lots of words for this one, I’m going to let the photos do the talking, Sara also provided me with a comprehensive list of all of their vendors and designers, I suggest for those planning their own wedding to take notes, this one was a stunner.

  • Anne Crawford - Those are amazing photos! So happy to have the opportunity to share this very special day!

The 2017 wedding season had a very sweet start with Sarah and Travis’ laid back and lovely Kennebunkport wedding. Their ceremony was held at Village Baptist Church, and the reception just a quick stroll away at the South Church Community House. Kennebunkport was still quite quiet, the summer tourists haven’t arrived in significant numbers yet, thankfully!

 

 The entire day had a welcome and relaxed feel, with very few typical wedding formalities. I really enjoyed the vibe, no crazy rushing around, and their guests seemed to really enjoy it too. We were also graced with perfect weather and the sun even made an appearance for their bubble exit. If this wedding is any indication 2017 is going to be a beautiful year!

  • Allison Daniell Moix - LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

  • Alison Aaskov's gaudin - Thanks for sharing these incredible photos. Love you

Kristin and Kyle didn’t really want snow in their engagement photos, but we got a foot of it the day before their shoot! Regardless, we soldiered on and actually ended up with a pretty perfect evening for their session.  One thing that they did want in some photos were their adorable dogs, Baxter and Wallace. Baxter and Wallace did not get that memo though and weren’t terribly interested in behaving for the camera. They sure are cute though!

Thanks to the warm day after the storm Portland’s Old Port was almost free of snow by the time we met, so it didn’t end up looking like a winter wonderland afterall. We strolled down the waterfront and ended up at Portland Lobster Company where Kristin and Kyle had their first date, thanks to all the puddles we were able to make some cool reflection shots throughout town. It is that perfect time of year in Portland, warm-ish, yet quiet since the tourists haven’t arrived. If only it stayed this way!

Thanks for an awesome shoot you two, see you again this fall!

If you live in Maine you know that this winter has been quite trying. Lots of snow, big storms, and just when we thought spring was coming, boom! another storm was bearing down on us. Sara and Josh were only going to be in Maine for a few days to wrap up their wedding details, so we really needed to get their engagement shoot in. Mother Nature was kind enough to give us a tiny window on Fridaay in which to get it done, and I’m so glad we did! Just after their shoot was done the snow started to fall and didn’t let up for a full 24 hours, in our area we got at least a foot. Spring please show your face, mercy!

These two were a dream to photograph though, so fun and in love. We shot in Brunswick, which was a new shooting location for me, so we spent almost two hours wandering around looking for fun locations and backdrops. I’ve always loved this town, so it was fun to explore it a bit more. It was chilly, but we made the best of it for sure. Their wedding is going to be at Harborview at Jones Landing on Peaks Island this coming August, I can assure you it will be much, much warmer!

Winter engagement shoots are becoming more popular, and I’m loving them! Portsmouth, New Hampshire with its old world feel, is a great location for e-sessions regardless of the weather, but it really shines in the quiet of winter. I just love that town; the old homes the open right onto the streets, the colorfully painted businesses, the brick and weathered clapboards, and don’t forget the bridges and water.  So classic New England, and so perfect for Kara and Dan who will be getting married in New Hampshire later this year.

Kara and Dan’s  engagement shoot was really special. When editing the photos I just couldn’t get over how they look at each other. Everyone should be so lucky to find someone who looks at them ‘that way’. Such love and adoration, but easy and relaxed at the same time. They claimed to not like being in front of the camera, but they were both great subjects! We kept moving because it was cold, and we made a nice circuit around town hitting all the iconic spots.

Also, I must give a big thank you Mother Nature for the most perfect dusting of snow, and little peeks of sunlight for this cold, yet fun winter engagement shoot. The temperature plummeted from just around freezing to single digits just hours after our shoot. I like shooting in winter, but not when I can’t feel my fingers!

Thanks for making the trip up to New Hampshire Kara and Dan, see you again when the grass is green again!
