Here it is. The night before Cairsten & James tie the knot and get hitched! I instinctively thought back to their engagement session at Bug Light in South Portland, Maine, just shy of a year ago. I'll be honest. We started off with some good laughs just finding each other despite having met before! (Bug Light, just so you know, is not the one by the Southern Maine Community College Campus.) Then I finally got to meet their two exuberant dogs and, well, there was more laughter. Wrangling those two is certainly a workout!Read More
When a couple contacts me a year and a half in advance of their wedding, it gives us plenty of time to get to know each other more and more prior to the big day. Add in the bride being a loyal Facebook page follower and it is a recipe for feeling like we are great friends. That was just how it felt when I got together with Christine & Joshua for their engagement session at Portland Headlight at Fort Williams Park. Hugs were given out immediately even though we had never met in real life. I'm a hugger. They were huggers. We were one big happy bunch. Together we wandered around the park: Joshua snuggling Christine as close as he could, Christine glowing and basking in Joshua's love, and me making my little happy noises I've become known to make during my shoots when I'm super stoked about what I'm capturing. And, given that I had a really hard time chose what to put in to this set of sneak peek photos, I was one happy camper.
I cannot wait for Christine & Joshua's wedding next September! I'll warn everyone now that I just might tear up watching their two say their vows because I love watching my friends get married!
