My Favorite 2021 Maine Wedding Photos

All good things must come to an end, and while I was happy when I finished my final Maine wedding of 2021 (it was a particularly busy season, and I was ready to hibernate), it was also a tad bittersweet. I had so much fun with my couples, their friends, and their families this season, and it was clear that they were all ready to party and celebrate! After quarantining and keeping a low profile in 2020, it was clear that 2021 was the year of good parties and good cheer, and it was exciting to capture all of the good energy that vibrated though each any every wedding. I can only imagine how PUMPED everyone will be in 2022- I’m looking forward to full dance floors, poignant toasts, and overflowing cheer.

I also spent a fair amount of this year photographing elopements (particularly Acadia elopements) and fell in love with sharing my favorite places in the park with my couples. We were witness to so many incredible views this year- sunsets on mountaintops, RAINBOWS, cliffside sunrises- and even though I’ve seen so much beauty in Maine, I’m always awed when I’m shown yet another stunning view. I felt so lucky to have shared these picturesque skies and landscapes with my couples.

I traveled all over the state of Maine to capture these weddings and elopements- from Blue Hill, to Mount Desert Island (Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, Tremont, Northeast Harbor), Wiscasset, Ogunquit, Dedham, Falmouth, and Cape Elizabeth. I logged lots of miles (especially all over MDI), but it was worth it to capture so so so much joy.

Here are my favorite photos from 2021. 2022, I’m looking forward to what you’ll bring! And, if you look through this post and you like what you see.. you should contact me :).

    Molly & Levi’s Foggy Acadia Wedding

    When Molly and Levi inquired with me and shared their vision for their wedding day, a day of hiking and celebrating with their loved ones, I was so excited. While there are many easily accessible spots in Acadia, it’s thrilling to go out of your way to spots less traveled in the park. While it may take a little effort to access them, you know you’ll have unique wedding photos!

    When I arrived to the mountain parking lot, it was pouring, which was a little bit nerve-wracking. Luckily, the rain petered out to occasional drizzles by the time we began coverage, but in worst case scenario we had umbrellas at hand. While I felt sad that Levi and Molly didn’t have a sunny and clear day, I was hopeful they’d be given unique skies (as I always tell my couples, unusual/bad weather days usually result in stunning light and skies!), and lo and behold, we had fog that made everything feel a bit magical.

    Levi and Molly had trekked in a van across the US and done lots of hiking last summer, so the pair sped right up the mountain with incredible ease, each carrying their wedding outfits. On the way up, we chatted about the latest season of Survivor, among other things, and before we knew it we had arrived to the incredibly foggy peak. The pair got dressed back to back and shared a sweet first look. While we didn’t have the scenic views I’m sure they were hoping for, the fog photographed ever so nicely.

    Molly and Levi opted to hike down in their dress and suit, which resulted in lots of kind congratulations and general excitement from passing hikers. Once we made it back to the parking lot, where their loved ones were waiting, we moved to the ceremony site, on the cliffs overlooking the ocean. And boy, what a ceremony it was! The emotion was palpable- Molly and Levi cried, sharing their hearts during their vows, and several loved ones teared up. It was magical to behold.

    After a few final portraits on the cliffs, we drove to Franklin, Maine, where everyone gathered to eat a delicious vegan meal by S + P Catering at a rental house. Toasts were shared, the cake was cut, and everyone was in great spirits. It was the perfect wedding to end my 2021 season with.

    Here are a few of my favorites from Molly and Levi’s wedding. Enjoy!

    Mariah and Noah’s Destination Elopement in Acadia National Park

    When Mariah and Noah met me at the Hulls Cove Visitor Center so that we could carpool through the park, Mariah and Noah were a bit rattled. Their morning hadn’t been the smoothest, which is pretty common on a wedding day. However, everything came together once their ceremony began, the breeze whipping the water around the cliffs in an ever-dramatic way (some of the best spray I’ve seen in the park!), and finally, among laughter, tears, and personally written vows, Mariah and Noah were married.

    I had been so excited for Mariah and Noah’s elopement because they were down for hiking up a mountain for sunset portraits. There’s a few mountains with shorter hike times in Acadia National Park and beautiful views, so we selected one of them, and we made our way up. A lot of couples ask if it’s doable, hiking up a mountain and wedding gear, and yes, it is! You’ll need to wear somewhat sturdy shoes, no heels, but if we pace ourselves we’ll reach locations that few venture to on their wedding day.

    Mariah and Noah popped a bottle of champagne on the top of the mountain, then soaked up the INCREDIBLE sunset that was delivered to us. There were a few people on the top of the mountain, but it still felt as if we had it completely to ourselves (a benefit to hiking up a mountain during your elopement!)

    Here’s a few of my favorite photos from Mariah and Noah’s destination Acadia elopement. Enjoy!
