Summer is really hanging on here in Maine, not that I’m complaining! It is technically autumn, but it is still humid and warm. This made Lauren and Garrett’s oceanside engagement shoot a welcome delight for a Sunday evening.

For Lauren and Garrett’s engagement session we met at Ferry Beach in Scarborough, then popped up to the Cliff Walk around Prout’s Neck for a few more shots. This is a popular location for sessions, and it is easy to see why, so gorgeous! These two lovely folks are tying the knot next summer at The Landing at Pine Point, so just down the coast from where we were shooting. 2018 dates are booking up (and even some 2019!), so if you’re getting married next year I’d love to hear from you. Engagement sessions are key to wedding day photography success, so they’re included in all but my smallest wedding day photography packages. Let’s chat!

I don’t shoot many family portraits, but this family so special; I’ve been watching these boys grow since 2011. I love every year that I have the chance to catch up with them, it has been such a joy watching the once unsteady toddlers turn into these strong, fast, silly boys. They’re each so unique and so easy to photograph, despite what their parents might think. Our session was at Newcastle Common, and it was so foggy, but that only added to the ambiance, and made for one of my most favorite photos of all time as the brothers played on a giant boulder under a huge, old apple tree.

If you’d be interested in a similar session for your family please see my new website www.honestsessions.com, or email for more info from the Contact link above. Documentary family sessions are my new obsession!

Autumn is here, and it is the craziest time of year for photographers in New England. I have been busy, busy, busy with shoots and trying to crank out blog posts and sneak peeks as fast as I can! I’m very excited to finally be able to share Kara and Dan’s wedding with you today!

Before summer officially ended I had the pleasure of photographing Kara and Dan’s drop-dead gorgeous wedding at New Hampshire’s chic Bald Peak Colony Club. I’d never shot a wedding here before, and it is truly a hidden gem. The grounds are impeccable, the views of Lake Winnepausakee are stunning, and the staff so professional. It also helps that Kara and Dan are awesome, and their friends and family equally so.

Despite being mid-September it was swelteringly hot, but no one was complaining, they were just having a fun, yet relaxing time. These two had planned a very comfortable schedule and left plenty of time for photos, which is really appreciated. Their ceremony was held a short trolley-ride away in Meredith at St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church, then we headed back to Bald Peak for some downtime and family photos before the big reception kicked off at 5:30pm. The Silver Arrow band quickly let everyone know that the party was started, and the tent was still thumping when I pulled away late into the night. Congrats Kara and Dan, it was a heck of a party!

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.
