Erica and Jay made the trek all the way out from Burlington, Vermont for their engagement shoot last weekend. I’ll be making the trek out to Vermont next year for their wedding. I’m going to be all over New England next wedding season; Vermont, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and of course Maine! I can’t wait!
It may be December now, but it has been unusually warm so far this winter, so rather than a snowy shoot, we had a day that felt much more autumn-like. Even down at the beach it wasn’t too windy or cold. We really lucked out as the beach can be positively brutal in December. Jay is a Mainer himself, so having the shoot here at the beach fit right in with his upbringing, and coincidentally his best-man happens to live in Saco, so Erica and Jay made a weekend around our shoot. I’m such a huge proponent of engagement shoots that I really appreciate when couples also make the shoot a priority despite distance and weather.
At their wedding I’ll get to reunite with Nikki and Adam whose wedding I shot on Peaks Island in 2010, it’s so much fun when I get to stay in touch with ‘my couples’ as the years pass, and I’m always very touched when they pass my name onto their friends.
I’ll see you two again next fall! Enjoy the holidays everyone!
