Many months ago, Emily and I met each other through video chat with her newborn son chiming in when he felt necessary while I thought about how long it had been since my daughter was his size. Bonding over the chaos of motherhood, we talked about her & Joven's plans for their destination wedding here in Maine during Maine's peak foliage. I was left in awe of their teamwork as they planned their wedding from the other side of the country (with help from Cassie of Doting & Details). Tackling wedding planning with a newborn at home? They did so with style and their wedding day itself was more perfect than I could ever say. Now, they might have wished for slightly warmer temperatures and a bit more bright fall colors on the trees, but at least it did not rain!Read More
fall foliage portraits
Wow. Wow. WOW!
When Molly first contacted me about her September 2017 wedding with Colin back in August, I instantly knew that I really wanted to be their photographer. We emailed back and forth about their incredible plans at one of my favorite venues in Maine and also about their relationship over all these years that led them to this point. We chatted on the phone shortly before they left for a trip to Iceland and it was like talking to old friends.Read More
One of my favorite portrait spots in Maine has got to be the campus at Pineland Farms. It offers such a wide variety of settings within walking distance of one another. Classic architecture, tranquil ponds, established woodlands... the list goes on. Fortunately for me, it also was located right between Kylie & Gary and myself, which made it an easy choice for their fall engagement portraits. Mother Nature blessed us with lightly cloud covered skies, which resulted in the most perfect lighting ever. Selecting images for their sneak peek, but this is a small taste of what we captured together as we explored Pineland Farm's campus. Enjoy!
Mitchell, thank you for serving our country in the U.S. Navy, and Alicia, thank you for being there to support him while he does it! I am very honored to have captured your wedding day for you. I hope you are both loving being newlyweds as much as I loved photographing your day. Thank you for letting me be a part of it all!

Meghan and Shane are tying the knot next August in a very Maine wedding (you'll have to stay tuned to hear all about it!), but we got together this fall nearby where we both live to capture some memories of this special time in their life together. The temperature was a bit nippy out, but their love for each other, for the most part, kept them warm. As we were getting to know each other more, we discovered that Meghan and I (and my husband) all went through (basically) the same degree program for our undergraduate and even have some of the same friends/classmates. It was a very small world conversation! And, much like my husband and I, Meghan and Shane owe their relationship to the University of Southern Maine. Tough guy Shane and all smiles Meghan and a ton of fun together and definitely compliment each other very, very well. We kept each other giggling all day. And their sense of adventure definitely matched mine. "Hey, this spot would be awesome! Would you mind coming..." and suddenly they were right there. I love a trusting couple!
Meghan and Shane, I had a blast hanging out with you two. I can't wait for the big day!
P.S. I'll "babysit" Peanut anytime you want. :-)
