The "O" Family Portraits in North Yarmouth, ME

The "O" Family Portraits in North Yarmouth, ME

Here I am anxiously watching the weather forecast for tomorrow to see if schools are going to be stuck with another day tacked onto the end of the year. What I would much rather be doing is going back to last fall when I spent the afternoon with the “O” family. Yes, the weather was absolutely PERFECT, but there are so many other reasons why it was the perfect afternoon. Abbey and Matthew were first in front of my camera way back in the early days of my business for their engagement portraits and subsequent wedding in 2011.

Ali & Lance's Intimate Christmas Wedding

Ali & Lance's Intimate Christmas Wedding

This blog post is coming to you long after the newlyweds received their gallery of finished images, which seems to be my constant “problem” in my excitement to deliver the entire set to them. And, when a couple is as adorable as Ali & Lance, it is downright impossible to chose my favorite images to share here.

Sweet Ali first reached out to me several months ago about their destination holiday wedding here in her home state of Maine and I was instantly taken by her bubbly, positive personality and the romance of her relationship with Lance.

The Quiet of the Winter

The Quiet of the Winter

It’s been quiet around here. You might be thinking, perhaps, too quiet. Alas, I am still here. Lurking in the shadows. Taking deep breaths. Enjoying time with my growing up much too fast daughter. And recharging a bit before the first wedding of 2019 next month (yes, a winter wedding!).

“She makes each experience as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. Susie goes above and beyond to capture everything from the most staged photos to the most candid. She does a fantastic job photographing children, especially toddlers who are very mobile!!”

The "M" Family Portraits in Wakefield, Massachusetts

The "M" Family Portraits in Wakefield, Massachusetts

You want to know what I absolutely love about photographing weddings? It’s getting together with the couples after their wedding for portraits. Seeing them after the emotional roller coaster of their wedding say and reconnecting is seriously amazing. And seeing Emily & Dale again after their wedding at the Colony Hotel in Kennebunkport, Maine, was even more special because it meant I got to meet their newborn daughter and see all of Emily’s side of their amazing family again.

Meghan & Hunter's Fall Wedding in Wells, Maine

Meghan & Hunter's Fall Wedding in Wells, Maine

Back in August, I met Meghan & Hunter for the first time for their engagement session. Normally a couple might look at the weather forecast, see the rain as just about a definite, and then opt to reschedule. But these two lovebirds decided to roll the dice and opt to go for it. Worst case scenario, they would get wet! But their fingers, and mine, were crossed with the hope that handling the rain for their portraits would result in perfect weather come their wedding day.

“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.
