You could say it was a coincidence, but I believe it was fate that spring arrived the very day of Rachel and Danny’s wedding at Hardy Farm in Fryeburg Maine.  The weather had been a bit touch and go, but their wedding day in western Maine welcomed temperatures that rose into the 70s and it was temperate enough to wander around without a jacket.  And while their wedding would have been lovely even if it had been cooler, it was all the better for it.  Everything was appointed so beautifully by Rachel and Danny- from their stunning pink peony florals by Dutch Bloemen Winkel (I’m such a sucker for peonies!), to their high-energy dance floor, headed up ever so well by Luke Lanigan of Revolution DJs, and everything else in between (you’ll have to see the vendor team below– all deserve accolades!), their Maine wedding was both an elegant soiree and raucous party– quite the feat!

Here are a few of my favorite photos from their wedding day.  Thanks for having me photograph your wedding Rachel and Danny!

A week or so ago I drove to one of my favorite Maine wedding venues, John Peters Estate, and joined Crys Bruschi of Wicked Fetch Skincare & Beauty to create photos of her work for her website.  We wandered around the stunning property, utilized the gorgeous window light, and photographed Crys’ lovely models, all of whom were sporting natural makeup coverage.

Here are a few of my favorite photos from my time with Wicked Fetch.
