Red Barn Outlook Farm Wedding My 2016 wedding season went out with a bang! Taryn & David’s gorgeous fall wedding at The Red Barn at Outlook Farm in South Berwick, ME was beyond perfect. November 5th could really go either way with weather and did we luck out. Taryn & David had the most beautiful fall day with clear blue skies and the air was just right. Maine & NH are special places for Taryn as she vacationed here since childhood. It was quite a project planning a wedding from across the country in California and she pulled it is off splendidly! Family and friends joined them from across the country and their day was filled with so much love and fun! These guys know how to have fun:) I was so happy they choose the perfect location for first look photos in downtown Portsmouth, NH overlooking the river with the Memorial Bridge in the background.

You might remember Michelle and Patrick from their engagement session I posted a few months ago. These two are a photographer’s dream and are so incredibly photogenic.

Red Barn at Outlook Farm Wedding Betsy & Chad are two kind souls. Betsy is a nurse and Chad a firefighter; it is obvious they put others before themselves as part of their everyday lives. It was so wonderful to be surrounded by their very fun friends and family members to celebrate the most special day of their lives in the beautiful Maine. Maine was truly significant to Betsy as she spent her childhood summers here and it only felt natural to marry the love of her life here. After there beautiful ceremony at First Parish Congregational Church in York, Maine we headed over to York Harbor Beach for photos. The day was just perfect with beautiful cloud coverage to create phenomenal light for family photos. We were then off to celebrate at Red Barn at Outlook Farm in South Berwick, ME for a night filled with so many awesome dance moves. These guys now how to party!!

Flag Hill Winery Wedding What an amazing day with Shayna & Ryan at Flag Hill Winery in Lee, NH. Shayna & Ryan were beyond excited their wedding day had finally arrived and so thrilled the weather was perfect. Watching Ryan’s reaction as Shayna walked down the isle melted my heart.  Shayna did an amazing job with the gorgeous purple and gold wedding details that tied in perfectly with a vineyard wedding. The purple lanterns and gorgeous flowers really made the tent come to life. I loved the lavender and purple bridesmaid dresses and Shayna’s gold shoes added just the right amount of sparkle. I was so happy to take Shayna & Ryan down to the field for pictures at sunset and it was such a sweet moment for the two of them!! Wishing you all the best Shayna & Ryan!

Union Bluff Meeting House Wedding Close to 100 degrees and 97% humidity, Candice & Josh’s wedding was a hot one! A hot & humid day was far better than the alternative: hot, humid and thunderstorms like we expected. We were all thrilled to see that amazing sun! The family and bridal party made it through all the photos and we were off to the ceremony. Literally 1 minute before Candice walked down the isle beautiful clouds circled overhead and a cool ocean breeze dropped the temperature by at least 15 degrees and made the ceremony very comfortable for all the guest. It doesn’t get much better than that! Candice & Josh planned their wedding at Union Bluff Meeting House from their home state of Minnesota. I just loved the the blush and gold wedding details, gorgeous flowers and the amazing wedding cake was one of the prettiest I have ever seen. I was so happy we got Candice and Josh out on the beach before the fog rolled in and the wind picked up. We only had a few minutes but it was well worth it. A beautiful wedding day for an amazing couple. Congratulations Candice & Josh! XOXO Photography: […]

Portsmouth Sheraton Wedding Tracey & Ethan are just one of those couples who are so incredibly sweet and and such a joy to photograph. They were surrounded by amazing family and friends and it was an honor to capture their beautiful wedding day at the Sheraton Portsmouth Harborside Hotel.  I spoke to Tracey the week before the wedding and she was so calm and relaxed when the weather pattern was not looking so great. Rain stayed away all day and we could not have asked for a more beautiful bright blue sky! I was so excited when we began to photograph the family and bridal party formals we had the perfect cloud coverage that filtered the sun so wonderfully. Amazing lighting and an awesome couple seriously makes my heart sing and Tracey and Ethan deserved the perfect day. I loved the nautical details and the navy blue bridesmaid dresses with the pop of fuchsia roses. Tracey was stunning in her Pronovias Octavia gown and Ethan’s reaction was pure joy as he watched her walk down the isle. Tracey did an amazing job and I have to say she was one of the most organized brides I have ever worked with. […]
