Cliff House Wedding Photography | Maine Wedding Photographer | Jenny & Brian Jenny & Brain planned the perfect wedding day at Cliff House in Cape Neddick, Maine. It was such an honor getting to know these two incredibly kind and beautiful souls over the past year. You may remember their stunning engagement session taken back in January that can be viewed HERE. I was so excited to see them again and have the chance to work with them at both the rehearsal dinner at Stage Neck Inn and their wedding day. Jenny & Brian had planned to have their wedding ceremony outdoors overlooking the ocean and we all had our fingers crossed the rain would stay away. As dark clouds starting rolling in they were nervous they made the wrong call by not moving the ceremony indoors. The winds picked up and the echo sounded like thunder rolling in from the water over the ceremony speakers. Guests were nervous to say the least and Brian envisioned everyone making a mad dash to the building if the sky opened up. As Jenny proceeded to the ceremony a few rain drops fell from the sky and then all was calm. The sky […]

York Golf and Tennis Club Wedding Photography | Maine Wedding Photographer I have to start by saying Sara & Luke are a wedding photographers dream! So laid back and fun and were not going to let a horrible weather forecast ruin their wedding day. I have to say it was a little scary…torrential downpours & thunder and lightning that echoed through your entire body. There were rumors First Parish Congregational church had been hit by lightning and Sara’s response: “Well I guess it can’t get much worse!” She was focused on the meaning of this day and the incredible man she was going to spend the rest of her life with. I was convinced we would not get a single shot outdoors all day and then suddenly the sky started to brighten in the distance and the rain slowed to a light drizzle. Sara & Luke were thrilled they would get have their first look outdoors. Not only first look photos but ALL photos were taken outdoors with a rain forcast that predicted 90% chance of showers all day long. Now that is some good luck. Sara & Luke were married at First Parish in York and then off to […]

York-golf-and-Tennis-Club-Wedding-Photography – Maddie & Paul These two hold a very special place in my heart… two of the kindest and sweetest souls who found true friendship and love in one another. I believe the word numerous loved ones used to describe their love is “infectious”. You can’t help but smile and be overwhelmed with joy when you look at them. Paul & Maddie truly make this world a better place. Paul & Maddie’s beautiful wedding ceremony took place at Trinity Church in York Harbor, Maine and then reception followed at York Golf & Tennis Club. Their day was filled with love, laughter, & tears, by all who celebrated their union.  I loved all the special details including the driftwood boats a local artist made for table numbers and place cards as well as the Bells of Ireland in the bouquets and centerpieces which coordinated perfectly with the bridesmaid gowns. Such a special day for an amazing couple who deserve every bit of joy and happiness the world has to offer. Maddie & Paul, it was a true honor to be a special part of your day and capture these beautiful memories for you. I loved every minute!  XOXO Photography: Casey […]

Rye NH Wedding Photographer | Becky & Pat | Rye Harbor State Park Wedding We had such an amazing day with Becky and Pat at their oceanfront wedding at Rye Harbor State Park in Rye, NH. The forecast called for rain much of the day and when the sky opened up just as guests started to arrive the guys were hard at work moving the wedding ceremony under the tent. We somehow managed to get all photos outside by the gorgeous oceanfront and believe it or not the sky eventually brightened and it turned out to be a wonderful day. Becky & Pat were surrounded by their closest family & friends and there was some serious dance competition out on the floor! It was truly an honor to be a part of this amazing day and wishing Becky & Pat all the best life has to offer.

Black Point Inn Wedding Photography | Maine Wedding Photographer | Jenna & Harrison Jenna and Harry’s stunning ocean front wedding at Black Point Inn in Scarborough, Maine was nothing short of perfect. From the gorgeous spring day to the beyond beautiful details this wedding is one for the books. Jenna & Harry were surrounded by so much love and joy and you can read it all over their faces. Jenna had a glowing smile the entire day and I couldn’t help but smile as I was picking my favorites for this post. Lindsay from Yellow Twist Floral Design created the most magical florals that surrounded the ceremony & reception for all to enjoy. Jenna grew up in Scarborough Maine and Black Point Inn was the perfect place to celebrate her & Harry’s union. Located at the water’s edge this historical hotel offers the most spectacular views along Maine’s beautiful coastline. Although much of Jenna’s family is quite familiar with this magnificent oceanfront setting,  many of Harry’s friends and family visiting from New York got to experience it for the first time. What a wonderful weekend for all. Jenna & Harry, you two are beyond adorable and it was such an […]

Portsmouth NH Engagement Photographer I had so much fun with Lisa & Peter last week at their spring engagement session in Portsmouth, New Hampshire! I will be photographing their 2019 Maine wedding when they will bring their two families together for the first time. Many of Lisa’s family members will be traveling from Japan and they could not be more excited! Lisa and Peter are both musicians and it is obvious they found a perfect match in each other. They really shine in front of the camera! Although they were hoping to go back to Japan for their engagement photos while the cherry blossoms were in full bloom; we picked the next best thing. We found some beautiful cherry trees here in Portsmouth and then headed to Odiorne State Park for another beautiful backdrop.

  Cliff House Maine Engagement | Maine Wedding Photographer I am so excited to photograph this amazing couple’s Cliff House wedding in August! I had so much fun with Jenny & Brian at their winter engagement session out on the snow covered rocks at Cliff House Maine. Jenny & Brian wanted to give guests a feel for this gorgeous Coastal Maine location for their save-the-date cards and I couldn’t agree more. I was so happy for a winter shoot with a fresh coat of powdery snow and this amazingly beautiful couple. We had planned to take engagement  photos the previous weekend during that horrible cold spell and were all so happy we waited for this perfectly gorgeous 50 degree day in January. Jenny’s long flowing emerald green skirt and cropped ivory lace top was the perfect choice for this dramatic backdrop. I always love when my couple dress’s to impress and these two nailed it!  In fact I think I need to go out and buy that outfit,  LOVE!!! Jenny & Brian are one of those couple’s that are so easy and fun to photograph. They are so comfortable in each other’s arms and it did not take them long […]

Ashworth Wedding Photography | Lisa & Chad | Hampton, NH Weddings The last wedding of the year is always bitter sweet and this wedding was the perfect end to my season. Lisa & Chad are seriously so cool and so much fun to work with. They were inspired by the 50’s and incorporated so many fun details including records and other vintage touches. The Ashwoth By the Sea in Hampton, NH was the perfect place to carry out this theme and celebrate with loved ones.  Lisa has some serious style and looked amazing in her backless gown and rocked her red lips. Chad was speachless when he turned round during their first look. I loved how they had this special moment alone to read their vows in private before the ceremony. It is moments like this that make me love my job. So much emotion & so much love!  XO Photographers: Casey Durgin Photography, Casey & Kyle Reception & Ceremony: Ashworth By the Sea, Hampton, NH Florist: Lisa Delisle Hair: Dawn Stickney, Leilani Salon Makeup: Jaci Lee, 5 Diamond Salon DJ: Damion Dong Cake: Jacques Officiant: Rachel Green Photoboooth: XO Photo

Kitz Farm Wedding Strafford NH | Emma & Liam What an amazing day with this super sweet couple! Emma & Liam are beyond adorable and it is obvious they are so in love. It was only fitting Emma & Liam choose Kitz Farm in Strafford, NH to celebrate their marriage. Emma spent most of her life riding and training horse and Liam grew up on a farm.  The property is stunning and I loved the rustic charm of the barn. We found the perfect spot for Emma & Liam’s first look in an apple orchard. The lighting was to die for and I just love how the sun accented Emma’s gorgeous blush gown & veil! Emma & Liam’s heartfelt wedding ceremony took place in a wide open field overlooking a pond with scenic views that stretched as far as the eye could see. Even though fall was on us with the leaves just starting to turn their day felt more like summer. Liam built the beautiful arbour and if you look closely you can see two hearts he hand carved. What a labor of love! After the ceremony guests headed back to enjoy cocktail hour in the barn,. Melanie Voros, […]
