For several years now, it has been my personal goal to see at least one of my couples grace the pages of a print publication. I see it as a milestone for my business, now 7-1/2 years young, to reach that level of recognition.
When I submitted several weddings for the January 2016 edition of Real Maine Weddings, I heard that one of them was accepted (more on that one later, I promise). But I did not know that Cairsten & Jimmy's amazing cake from Confection Art Inc in Kittery, Maine, was also going to grace its pages! Needless to say, I was quite literally jumping for joy earlier this year when I received my copy of the publication and saw their vintage nautical themed cake from their York Harbor Inn wedding filling the opening page of the "Maine Cakes" segment. I should also admit that I might have been salivating just a smidge as I vividly remember how decadent their cake smelled as I was photographing it.
If you can't find the January 2016 edition on news stands near you, head on over to check out the digital edition on the Real Maine Weddings website. Thank you to Confection Art Inc for creating such a masterpiece for me to photograph, to Cairsten (the birthday girl!) & Jimmy for having us capture their wedding, and to the fine folks at the York Harbor Inn for such an inspiring venue for their wedding. More importantly, thank you to the staff at Real Maine Weddings for helping me put a huge check next to my goal!
