My relationship with Michelle & Jory goes back almost three years at this point since they first contacted me to photograph their wedding at the Maple Hill Farm Inn in Hallowell. Since their first message, I've been lucky to photograph their engagement portraits, wedding, maternity portraits and, now, their family. Seeing them each time is like spending time with old friends at this point.

"Susie is so amazing, I could not have asked for a better photographer. Not only did she capture every moment but she was so professional, nice and friendly. In addition to be an excellent photographer she is an expert at weddings and helped with everything from tying my bustle to finding the perfect moment to escape for some sunset photos."

"Susie and her husband were absolutely incredible. Not only did they take beautiful pictures, but they did everything from pinning flowers to finding our wedding planner and more. They had us laughing constantly and, by the end of the night, they felt like family. We would highly recommend them for any and all events!!
It's hard to believe that Emily & Dale's wedding was just a few weeks ago and I've already been working at designing their wedding album. Reliving their day while telling the story of their day made me realize that I had yet to hit "publish" on their official sneak peek blog post! Time flies when I'm focused on delivering their gallery to them!
Kelly & Kevin were married almost two years ago at the quintessential Maine venue, The Maine Maritime Museum in Bath, Maine. As they await the arrival of the next generation, we got to work on creating their custom heritage wedding album with their favorite images from the day. I absolutely love this part of my relationship with couples as it gives me the chance to see what images that I captured for them are their favorite and mean the most to them. Narrowing down their choices to the ones that will be able to tell their wedding story for generations to come can certainly be challenging, but the end result is so worth it!
My journey with Jessica & John began a few years ago as I photographed John's sister's wedding. What struck me then, and still does today, is how much they can make each other smile and laugh. Their mutual love of sarcasm seems to bind them closer together, too. It goes without saying that I was more than a little excited in July of last summer when Jessica reached out to me as they were starting their own wedding planning. After I finished literally jumping for joy at the prospect of spending the day with John's family again, Jessica told me of their plans for an "Alice in Wonderland" themed wedding at the always gorgeous Dunegrass Weddings at the Dunegrass Golf Club in Old Orchard Beach.
When you can trace your first photos of a couple back eight years to the very beginning of their relationship, you know it's going to be a special session for me. I am a sucker for nostalgia, of course. So it goes without saying that the first thing I did this evening in preparation for writing this post was to dig through my archives to find a photo of Chris & Jen from way, way back at John & Jenessa's wedding on Peaks Island in 2009. The very first one I found was nothing to write home about. And then I found this jem of the two of them, newly dating each other, attending his cousin's wedding. It is hard to think about the journey that they have taken over the years that led them to last weekend with their ten day old baby in their arms and, once again, in front of my camera.
