“Suzanne is just amazing. She was so much more than our photographer that day! It felt like we had a family member capturing all of the moments on our special day. Somehow she managed to take pictures of everyone and every moment but she was never intrusive in her approach. Our pictures turned out beautifully and our house is covered in them!”

Keeley & Dan's Fall Wedding in Buxton, Maine

Keeley & Dan's Fall Wedding in Buxton, Maine

Keeley & Dan reached out to me to photograph their own nuptials over a year in advance of their wedding date. Having worked with me already, it didn’t take long for them to officially crown me their wedding photographer. I love it when that happens! They were planning a backyard soirée at Keeley’s childhood home with their closest family and friends there to celebrate. In fact, the tent was actually set up where Keeley & Amber’s swing set was set up many years ago. I am sure that the weekend was a bit surreal to their parents as the lawn was taken over with lawn games, cocktail tables, an aisle, and a large white tent.

Lyndsay & Collin's Lakeside Wedding at Camp Wildwood

Lyndsay & Collin's Lakeside Wedding at Camp Wildwood

Fifteen months. That is how long I waited to meet Lynsday & Collin for the first time on their wedding day. Yet that fifteen months of calls and emails made it seem like I was catching up with old friends when I arrived at Camp Wildwood in Bridgton, Maine, for their wedding festivities. I found Lyndsay with her ladies with their preparations well under way in one of the cabins tucked a bit away from the other wedding guests enjoying the beach across camp. The nerves had kicked in for everyone along with the occasional giggle of excitement. Meanwhile, Collin and his gents played volleyball by the main hall before retreating to the lower level of the cabin to tackle their own primping. With their getting ready stage completed, I shooed their lingering family and friends away (sorry, y’all!) to give these two a brief moment of time to see each other. As soon as they locked eyes on each other, the stress melted away and the laughter started again. As I saw them together in one space for the first time ever, it was very obvious to me why they make such a perfect match.

Amanda & David's Eagle Mountain House Summer Wedding in Jackson, NH

Amanda & David's Eagle Mountain House Summer Wedding in Jackson, NH

As mother nature officially turned the page on the summer of 2018, I find myself looking back at the past two months in disbelief that it has been that long since Amanda & David tied the knot. And, at the same time, that it has been that long since my own wedding anniversary as Alan & I got married on August 4th much like these two. When I first met with Amanda and her mother, August seemed like it was so far away. But POOF! it arrived in a flash.

I am quite baffled, really.

I am quite baffled, really.

Technically, this post should have hit my blog yesterday. But, truth be told, it took me until mid day to come to the realization that it was August 8th. And thus here I am. It's the middle of the night and I have just wrapped up another night owl editing session. Now is as good a time to write this post. My daughter is asleep in her bed in the room next to my office (with the dog not too far away from her in his own bed). Alan is down in the other end of the house having gone to bed hours ago. It's just me and my thoughts. And I am blown away.

Meghan & Hunter's Rainy Day Engagement Portrait Session

Meghan & Hunter's Rainy Day Engagement Portrait Session

Meghan & Hunter... where do I even begin!? These two love birds work together, but didn't connect until they were matched online. Shortly thereafter, it was clear to both of them why. And, after hanging out with the two of them in the rain, it's pretty clear to me as well. For many couples, my "I think we might miss the rain" email that I sent them yesterday afternoon before their engagement session might have given them pause and consider rescheduling. But Meghan & Hunter's response was simply that they wouldn't melt. My kind of couple!

Margot & Nicholas's Destination Wedding at the Bar Harbor Regency Stone House

Margot & Nicholas's Destination Wedding at the Bar Harbor Regency Stone House

There might have been a royal wedding "across the pond" this past spring (just in case you forgot, of course), but Margot & Nicholas had their very own fairy tale wedding day here in Maine for their destination wedding at the timeless Stone House at the Bar Harbor Regency. When I arrived at the Stone House to start capturing formal photos of Margot with her ladies, she literally took my breath away when she came out of her room with her hair pinned up, a sparkling tiara atop her curls, three strands of pearls just grazing her collar bone, and an absolutely stunning gown and long veil from Lovely Bride's New York City Bridal Shop. I'll admit that it took me a bit to recover! I knew that the day would be filled with loads of amazing details, but I don't think there was anything that could have really prepared me for just how incredible it all was.

Jen & Mike's Engagement Portraits at Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve

I first met Jen & Mike at Danielle & Dustin's wedding last fall. Danielle had told me that her brother was engaged to Jen and I will admit that I was secretively hoping that they would consider me for their own wedding. It goes without saying that I was super excited when Jen reached out and asked me if I would be able to travel to Connecticut in 2019. Then we shared a laugh over the idea that traveling to Connecticut would take just as long as traveling to many places here in Maine. Of course I travel!

As we were planning their engagement session, I suggested Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve so that they could take in some of Maine's coastal beauty in a location that was also environmentally minded, much like the two of them. From the views from the hill tops to the pathways through the woods, the boardwalks among the ferns and then the views over the marshlands, we had an awesome time exploring the Reserve and chatting about their plans for their fast approaching wedding. Truth be told, I might have pulled a few lovely ticks off me, but I dare say they were worth it for the images we were able to capture together. I cannot wait for their wedding next year!

Jen & Mike, thank you for trusting me to capture this chapter of your life together. What a blast!
