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.

Margot & Nicholas's Destination Wedding at the Bar Harbor Regency Stone House

Margot & Nicholas's Destination Wedding at the Bar Harbor Regency Stone House

There might have been a royal wedding "across the pond" this past spring (just in case you forgot, of course), but Margot & Nicholas had their very own fairy tale wedding day here in Maine for their destination wedding at the timeless Stone House at the Bar Harbor Regency. When I arrived at the Stone House to start capturing formal photos of Margot with her ladies, she literally took my breath away when she came out of her room with her hair pinned up, a sparkling tiara atop her curls, three strands of pearls just grazing her collar bone, and an absolutely stunning gown and long veil from Lovely Bride's New York City Bridal Shop. I'll admit that it took me a bit to recover! I knew that the day would be filled with loads of amazing details, but I don't think there was anything that could have really prepared me for just how incredible it all was.

Anne & Derek's Wedding at Portland's Ocean Gateway

Anne & Derek's Wedding at Portland's Ocean Gateway

When Anne & Derek reached out to me in early December, the snow covering the ground and April seemed like a distant thought. Before we knew it though, the snow was melting, the grass was starting to look a little less grim, and the days were getting a bit longer. The chill of winter was hanging on by a thread as I arrived at the Residence Inn by Marriott Portland Downtown/Waterfront to meet Anne & Derek on their wedding day. Yet they were troopers as we made our way to Portland's Fort Allen Park for their first look next to the Fore River. The chill in the air made for good cuddling weather as they spent some moments together taking it all in.

Elizabeth & Michael's Maine Maritime Museum Wedding

Elizabeth & Michael's Maine Maritime Museum Wedding

Exactly eleven months prior to their wedding, Elizabeth & Michael reached out to me with their plans for their June 2018 wedding at Maine Maritime Museum. I was instantly excited at the opportunity to visit the Museum after Kelly & Kevin's wedding back in 2015. As I got to know Elizabeth & Michael and learned more about their story, my enthusiasm only grew (as did the "reply" list of our email chain). Fast forward to this past Saturday and even mother nature couldn't dampen my spirits. It was time for Elizabeth & Michael to finally get hitched! I am not sure that the forecast was what they had in mind when they opted for a June wedding, but my goodness did they rock it!

Praise from Emily & Coleman

Praise from Emily & Coleman

★★★★★ (5 out of 5 stars)

"WOW, where do I begin?!?! Susie was incredible and the best money I could have spent on our wedding. When my husband and I got engaged, I spent weeks looking for the perfect photographer. There were so many, I couldn't make a decision. Had I known then what I know now after working with Susie, it would have been a no brainer. The entire day of my wedding I was blown away by her talent, her organization, discreteness, and efficiency."

Mary & Matt's Fall Wedding at The Liberty in Boston

Mary & Matt's Fall Wedding at The Liberty in Boston

Just in case you aren't in Maine today, looking out my window is down right depressing. There are patches of the first snow still around in the shadows while mother nature is dumping tons of rain on us. Add in the colder temps and... *sigh* it is an ideal afternoon for tea, reading a book, and cuddling with my pup. Alas, my go to activity for this rainy days is to release a much anticipated sneak peek to brighten mood.
