Meet Sam and Jessica, my first 2014 wedding couple to have their engagement photos taken!
I met up with them last week in Portland for their somewhat impromptu engagement session, impromptu because they had just contacted me a few days prior to book their wedding photography. They live in New Jersey, but are getting married at the beautiful Castle Hill Inn, in Newport, Rhode Island next year (so psyched I’ll be shooting Newport again!). I lucked out, as they just so happened to be in Maine this week, so we squeezed a shoot in as they made their way north to Acadia National Park. Jessica went to college in Maine, so she knows the area well, and we had a fun time exploring and reminiscing about Portland.
It’s summer here in ‘Vacationland’, and therefore it is an absolute zoo in the Old Port, so we stuck to the quieter parts of the city. We started out at City Hall, and the nearby park, then hopped in the car and drove to the East End beach. Sam is a surfer, so beach photos were a must. They are a sweet and fun couple and their engagement shoot was light-hearted and easy, they barely needed any direction at all.
Thanks for making time for your shoot Jessica and Sam, I’ll see you next year!
