I just wanted to take a few minutes to show some of my weekday wedding work. I have had the privilege of photographing several elopements in Portland recently. I have signed the marriage license for both and wish them many years of happiness. I am obsessed with the striped Kate Spade wedding shoes
I always forget to blog my engagement sessions I wanted to take a minute to show some of the recent ones. We did a session at one of my favorite spots in Biddeford Pool, a cute park in Yarmouth, camp Ellis, and another of my favorites Laudholm Farm. I am so blessed to have such wonderful couples!
What a wonderful wedding weekend this past weekend was. Even though it was chilly at the summer camp–everyone bundled up in under-armor and flannel and laughed, ate, and chatted around the campfire. The ceremony itself was beautiful with their friends and family on all sides of them and Liz’s Dad and brother leading the sermon it was a personalized and beautiful wedding. Everything matched Liz and Dave’s personality so well and everyone came to the camp because Liz and Dave have been such a part of their lives. One of my favorite moments was when Liz was telling her father in law about her grandfathers dancing shoes….and he was next to her smiling. There were people from all over the globe, all walks of life, and everyone brought their personality and best dance moves that evening. I loved the part in the ceremony when her brother read what they wrote about each other and their years together–it was so neat to hear because essentially they both said the other knew them better than they know themselves….thats pretty awesome! It was a weekend full of memories. Thank you so much Liz and Dave for allowing me to capture this Maine summer camp wedding….it was a pleasure.

What is the most important to you about your wedding? “We want everyone to know how special they are to us. In every decision we make we ask ourselves if it is going to achieve that goal, and if not, maybe it’s not all that important.”
What is your favorite thing about your fiancée? ”Dave’s sense of humor – I laugh every day, multiple times. That is all I could have ever asked for. –Liz How thoughtful she is, Liz knows what I need more than I do. – Dave”
