Ann and Sam’s Blue Hill Maine Wedding

On a sunny September day, Ann and Sam’s Blue Hill Maine wedding took place in a field that was, as its name suggests, Windswept. It had just so happened to be a bit of a windy week already, so there had been some complications with the tent staying put, and there was some worry about how warm it would be on their wedding day, but all was perfect- the view was stunning, the sun beat down fiercely, and the veil didn’t fly off during the vows (although, to be honest, I would have been excited if it had!).

Ann and Sam’s wedding day was full of fun and surprises- from the ring Sam surprised Ann with during the ceremony, to a fireworks show (which unfortunately I wasn’t there to capture, as they occurred after my coverage ended-alas!), to a stunning, fiery sunset that drew everyone outside even as the temperature was falling, to very sweet and thoughtful toasts that lingered as twilight deepened… it was a day and night to remember.

The wedding day wouldn’t have been complete without Kristen of Beehive Creative Events at the wheel, and she did so flawlessly. Trillium Caterers provided beautiful, delicious food (as they always do!) and Soul Benders made sure the dance floor was filled with friends and family ready to party.

Here are a few of my favorite photos from Ann and Sam’s wedding day. Enjoy!

Bekka and Aaron’s Acadia Elopement

I received an email twenty-four hours before Bekka and Aaron’s elopement and was asked by Bekka if I would be interested in photographing their Acadia elopement. I only had office work planned for the next day, so… yes, I was happy to capture it for them! Bekka and Aaron had just sprang the news to their families (who were enjoying a joint vacation in Bar Harbor) that they would be eloping in Acadia, and so with very little time to spare they secured a dress from Blush, a bouquet and boutonniere, and, well.. me! I met Bekka and Aaron the next day and we drove around the park, starting at Cadillac Mountain, and then stopping at some of my favorite spots in Acadia National Park for wedding portraits. The day was spectacular- not only were we treated to some magical light and low-lying clouds (which were a complete surprise to me- the forecast had called for clear and sunny skies… MDI’s weather sometimes provides some interesting surprises!), but Bekka and Aaron were glowing with happiness and excitement, which made their photos all the better.  Special thanks are in order for Bekka’s mom, Jen, who drove us around the park and even held a light for me for a few of these portraits.

Here are a few of my favorite photos from their Acadia elopement on Cadillac Mountain. Enjoy!

Caroline & Brad’s French’s Point Wedding

On a beautiful day in September, Caroline and Brad had their Maine wedding at the beautiful French’s Point, located in Stockton Springs.  It was a day perfectly tailored to the two of them- it began with yoga, outside on the lawn (I wish I had been able to capture that!), ping pong for Brad and his attendants (which they played with gusto), and general preparations for their wedding. After a sweet look down by the water (first looks are always a great idea if you don’t want to worry about getting all of your photos done during cocktail hour), along with family and wedding party portraits, I got to witness Caroline and Brad’s beautiful ceremony, filled with emotional vows (so many tears!) and heartfelt words spoken by family and friends. Afterwards, everyone gathered in French’s Point beautiful sailcloth tent to party, lead by the wonderful Dukes of Circuit Ave. One of my favorite parts of the evening was when Caroline and Brad invited their guests to dance with them after their first dance, and the dance floor was so packed that I had to really push my way into the center of it. It’s always so much fun to create photos on such busy, energetic dance floors!

We rounded out the evening by heading back to the water to take a portrait of Caroline and Brad underneath the Milky Way, which was particularly vibrant that night. It was such a fun photo to make!

Here’s a few favorite photos from Caroline and Brad’s wedding. Enjoy!
