I met Maggie and Mike for the first time yesterday at their engagement shoot in Portland. With the the chill in the air, it sure was nice to talk about their wedding on Peaks Island next summer! I’m really looking forward to shooting at the Trefthen-Evergreen Improvement Association again, where I shot Ariel and Hunter’s wedding this past summer, the location and the building are rustic and charming, and so very ‘Maine’. Plus, Maggie and Mike also have a Labrador retriever who will hopefully be a big part of their wedding, just like Bear was for Ariel and Hunter!
These two are so easy going, we could have walked, and talked, and shot all day. Mike is admittedly not thrilled to be in front of the lens, but by the end of our shoot he seemed to loosen up and have some fun. I have to admit that asking people to ‘make-out’ in public while I take pictures is a bit outside of most people’s comfort zone, so a bit of nervousness is to be expected!
See you two again when the sun is shining, and the leaves on the trees are green once again!
