Stephanie and Joey fell in love with York Beach after a vacation here, and when it came time to plan their wedding it was a perfect fit for this Massachusetts couple. Just a quick drive up from Boston, York Beach is a fun, festive little seaside hamlet, and for Joey and Stephanie’s engagement photos we made sure to hit all the fun spots. On foot you can get to York’s Wild Kingdom, Fun-O-Rama arcade, and of course the beach in only a few minutes. It goes without saying that I love this town, since this is where I was married 11 years ago. It is so quintessentially New England that it feels like a movie set.
We started off the shoot with lots of nervous giggles and apprehension, but by the time we strolled down to the sand at sunset these two were all lovey and relaxed. This is why engagement shoots are so important, unless you’re used to being followed around by a photographer in your daily life!
Their wedding next year will be right back in York Beach at the Union Bluff Meeting House, where I’ll also be shooting a wedding this Sunday! Can’t wait to get back to this lovely little town again and again.
