On a seasonably warm day in November (the last warm day I remember from this year- sigh!), I met Hilary and Josh for the first time in Portland for their engagement session.  We wandered around the Old Port, then hopped in a car to check out Mackworth Island.  I had never been, but had heard good things, and it definitely did not disappoint!  What a charming spot- I’m fond of islands, and not only was this one easily reachable by car, but it had it all- woods, beaches, a clear view of the sunset, and a view of the Old Port.  Does it get any more Maine than that?  These two were so lovely to get to know over the course of our session, and I’m looking forward to their wedding in May.  See you two soon- hope the two of you enjoyed a meal at Street and Co. after I left you! :)






It’s been a couple of months since Maine Magazine’s annual 2016 wedding guide has hit shelves, but now that all of my weddings and sessions are edited I can finally share this feature!  Natalie and Tom’s Blue Hill Maine wedding has always been a favorite of mine for a few reasons- it was stylish (all of the bridesmaids wore beautiful white dresses or jumpsuits, and take a look at those flower crowns!), it took place at one of my all-time favorite venues (John Peters Estate, now currently out of commission), and featured the excellent work of Amber of Sweetest Thing Weddings, Matt of LMV Productions, Rioux Catering, and Wallace Events.  And, let’s not forget the lobster, the bonfire at twilight, and the sparklers… all in all, it was a magical day and evening I wish I could redo.

Here’s the seven page spread- enjoy!  If you’re currently planning a 2017 or 2018 wedding, consider picking up a copy of Maine Magazine’s 2016 wedding issue- it’s beautiful!
