Kelly and Adam have a great story. They were both traveling from one part of the country to another when fate stepped in and stuck them both with a layover at Dulles International Airport. To kill time, they both decided to grab a drink at the bar. After chatting for a while, they both felt a connection and exchanged information before continuing on their separate ways.

There were many trips back and forth across the country to see each other and one day, during a visit in New York City, they knew it was love.

Kelly and Adam invited friends and family to Maine for a gorgeous summer wedding at Harbor View at Jones Landing on Peaks Island. The island is known for its gorgeous sunsets and we were all spoiled with a pretty fantastic one!

Here are some of my favorites from the day!

I had such a great time getting to know Brittni and her parents. She has the most infectious laugh and such a great personality. I also loved hearing her horseback riding stories. It made me want to take lessons!

I met Brittni and her family at the City Forest in Bangor. It was a gorgeous September day and we were lucky to experience the last bits of summer. Here are some favorites! I love the shot above so much!Maine-senior-portrait-photographer-0002Maine-senior-portrait-photographer-0003Maine-senior-portrait-photographer-0004Maine-senior-portrait-photographer-0005Maine-senior-portrait-photographer-0006Maine-senior-portrait-photographer-0007Maine-senior-portrait-photographer-0008The City Forest offers so many backdrops for photos.

When I heard about Lauren and Andrew’s wedding day plans I was so excited. They had chosen the Camden Amphitheatre for their ceremony and the Whitehall Inn for their reception in Camden, Maine. Joel and I also had those two venues for our wedding, so I always jump at the chance to photograph at either of them. This was my first time photographing a ceremony at the Amphitheatre and it was such a joy to be back there witnessing another couple join their lives together.

I also got to work with the fantastic Sarah Goodwin of Daisies & Pearls! Sarah and I had collaborated on two styled shoots before, but never a wedding. Sarah is also a Whitehall Inn bride, so it was incredibly fun working with Lauren as two former brides who had already gone through the process.

Sarah helped Lauren and Andrew create a gorgeous vintage travel themed wedding that blew me away. You’ll see that I’ve shared a lot of photos of their reception details below. I  loved it all!

Here are my favorites from their day!

  • you captured the day so beautifully and what an adorable couple, let’s work together again soonReplyCancel

You’ve probably figured out by looking at my website that I really only photograph seniors, engagements and weddings these days. However, once or twice a year I will make an exception for my wonderful past wedding clients. I had photographed Amanda and Mike’s engagement, wedding, Mike’s daughter’s senior portraits and their maternity photos, so how could I not capture their new little peanut? We scheduled a quick visit in the hospital before they took baby home for the first time and I’m so glad I got to meet her and snap some shots of the three of them together before they took her out into the real world.

Here are some favorites!

I love Riley and Tyler. Not just because they’re the biggest Dave Matthews Band fans on the planet (they’ve seen them live over 20 times!), but because they both went out of their way to surprise each other on the wedding day. I chatted on the phone with Riley before the wedding and she told me she had been trying to keep lots of secrets from Tyler. That’s just how these two are. They’ve been together for 14 years and they still go above and beyond to make each other happy. Joel and I were so looking forward to their wedding day after meeting them in Boston for their engagement session and it was absolutely perfect.

Here are some favorites!
