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. […]

Stage Neck Inn Weddings I was so happy when Kristina & Skip called to let me know they wanted me to be their wedding photographer. It took two seconds to realize Kristina and Skip are the sweetest people and so deeply in love.  They met in a church group and faith is a significant part of their life. Their wedding day Stage Neck Inn in York, Maine was beyond perfect from the bright blue skies to the surprise fireworks show to top off the night.  Kristina beamed with delight from the early morning hours through the very last dance.  She was stunning and Skip’s reaction when she walked down the isle was priceless.  Everyone shed a few tears during their heartfelt weddings vows. I just adore these two!!

York Golf and Tennis Club Weddings Shannon & Greg are two of the sweetest & kindest people we have had the great pleasure to photograph. I have been excited for their wedding day since I photographed their engagement session on the beach in Kennebunk last fall. They are so natural in front of the camera and their loves is so strong for one another. They met in Maine at St. Joe’s College where they both played soccer so it was important to capture their athletic ability while they played a little soccer. Their soccer teams joined them at their wedding and I have to say they were among the most fun people to hang with for the day. Shannon did an amazing job incorporating nautical details throughout the day from buoy table numbers to sailing knots that adorned the floral centerpieces. I loved the navy blue bridesmaid dresses and the bright pink flowers in Shannon’s bouquet and the guys looked amazing in their nautical inspired suits. York Golf and Tennis Club weddings are among my favorite to photograph and was the perfect place to carry out the nautical theme. We just love the boat house covered with buoys across the […]

Inn By The Sea Wedding Michelle & Andrew could not have asked for a more perfect spring day for their gorgeous wedding at Inn By The Sea in Cape Elizabeth Maine. These two were so excited to spend the weekend in this beautiful coastal town with all their loved ones. Michelle was stunning in her Monique Lhuillier wedding gown and it was such a special moment when Andrew saw her for their first look before the ceremony. Andrew’s son William was a very special part of the day and could not have been more adorable. He was thrilled when his favorite song “We Will Rock you” played and he hit the dance floor with Michelle & Andrew.

York Maine Wedding Photographer | Katie & Ryan Married | Stage Neck Inn Katie & Ryan’s gorgeous York, Maine wedding at Stage Neck Inn was my first wedding of the year. I couldn’t have asked for a more fun, relaxed and completely in love couple to start off the wedding season. Katie, from the East Coast and Ryan from the West, met for the first time at the restaraunt where Katie worked in Massachusetts. Ryan was immediately interested in Katie and quickly became a regular patron and finally asked her out on a date. The rest is history. Maine is a special place for these two and Ryan eventually proposed to Katie here. Katie spent much of her childhood vacationing in Maine and Ryan loved it because the coast reminded him of where he grew up in California. It was only natural the two would choose the Maine Seacoast to celebrate their marriage. It was important they choose a location with an amazing view of the coast and it does’t get much better than Stage Neck Inn. Ryan’s son Hunter was a complete love and we had many special moments with this little guy. What an adorable family!! Katie did […]
