The "P" Family Portraits in Waterboro, Maine

The "P" Family Portraits in Waterboro, Maine

Nothing says “love” like time spent with family, right? Surround grandparents with all of their kids and grandkids and you can practically see it radiating around them. Spending the day with the “P” family last fall was the perfect example of that. In fact, they expanded their circle a bit more that day and invited my own family to join in the fun and Alan and Bri came along.

Michelle & Chris's Spring Wedding at The 1888 Barn

Michelle & Chris's Spring Wedding at The 1888 Barn

Michelle & Chris’s pretty in pink fairy day has been lurking in the wings here on my blog for a few weeks. But, as I get ready to send along their full gallery to them in the next few days, I knew it was time to relive the day here at last through their sneak peek. And oh my what a day it was! Truth be told, I’ve been looking forward to their wedding for over a year since they first contacted me and even more so since their engagement session last October.

Lexi and Chris’s Winter Engagement Portraits by Sebago Lake in Standish, Maine

Lexi and Chris’s Winter Engagement Portraits by Sebago Lake in Standish, Maine

You might not be thrilled that I’m showing you photos that involve snow. In fact, I was hiking Tumbledown Mountain last week and saw a few large swaths still up in those hills. My mind instantly went to Lexi and Chris’s engagement session from this past winter around Sebago Lake here in Standish. We were very lucky to have a relatively mild day when we got together and were able to poke around without being bundled up too much.

Michelle & Chris's Engagement Portraits at Doles Orchard

Michelle & Chris's Engagement Portraits at Doles Orchard

You just might have seen Michelle & Chris’s names in the subject line of this post and got super excited to see their wedding photo! Alas, I’m working on their sneak peek and realized that I never posted any from their engagement portraits last fall at Doles Orchard. Opps! So, rather than post things out of order, I opted for a look back at last fall to get you more excited to see their gorgeous wedding last weekend. Looking back, it’s hard to imagine that I first met up with Michelle to talk about their wedding 14 months ago when they were just starting to plan their wedding. That seems like forever ago now!

“Suzanne Simmons Photography is the best wedding photographer in Portland Maine or Southern Maine, hands down. I first saw Suzanne's work 10 years ago at my sister's wedding. I remembered her kindness, attention to detail, professionalism, and humor while on site, and just as important - how GORGEOUS my sister's photos were after editing.”

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!”
