The wedding and engagement season is starting to heat up, along with the weather, thankfully! Meet Erin and Dan, their wedding is coming up in October in Falmouth, Maine, so having there engagement photos there was an easy choice.
Just off the Maine coast is a tiny little island named Mackworth. Mackworth Island has long been one of my most favorite places in all of Maine, so when Erin suggested we shoot some of their engagement photos there I was thrilled. The little walking path that makes a circuit of the island is only one and a quarter miles long, but it offers many charming spots for photos. I could shoot out here all summer and still have unique places for photos. Mackworth is an oasis of sorts, the tiny parking lot limits the number of visitors at any one time, no bikes are allowed, and dogs must remain on leash. I have always found it to be a very peaceful spot. Oh, and there are also lots of fairy houses, I forgot to mention Mackworth is also a magical place!
Erin and Dan met in high school, but didn’t date back then, they say it came as quite a surprise to their classmates at their recent reunion. Love takes its own time, and these two are clearly in love! It will be a short few months before I get to see them again when they ‘tie the knot’, I can’t wait!
