Wolfe's Neck State Park Engagement | Kaila + Billy

I met Kaila + Billy at Wolfe's Neck State Park for their engagement shoot.. and what an incredible experience it was! The way Billy tenderly looks out for Kaila, and her beautiful caring eyes that look back at him melted my heart. These two are adventurers, college sweethearts and just as kind as can be. I cannot wait to photograph their wedding tomorrow at Marianmade Farm in Wiscasset!

PS-- how excited was I when they showed up with this sweet tandem bike?! No big deal... just another normal date night. :)

Hoboken Engagement | Heidi + Paul

I can't believe it's already end of July and that these two incredible people are getting married this weekend on Bailey Island. After spending some wonderful quality time with Heidi + Paul in Hoboken, NJ for their engagement shoot this Spring, we are bursting with excitement to celebrate with them tomorrow!! Hoorah!!

South Portland Maine Engagement | Joy + Ben

Joy + Ben are a brave and fun-loving couple. Last Fall we got together to celebrate their engagement in South Portland and around Willard Beach, where they often go to play with their pup, Ketchup. These two humans were awesome enough to let me in on some of their favorite ways to interact, connect, and authentically show love for one another. I smile every time I think back to those moments when they were able to let go, play, sit in the quiet, embrace, and connect. This, these moments, real people being people, is what drives me to continue documenting the beauty of the human condition.

If you haven't read Joy's powerful article on Cosmopolitan on the topic of name-changing after the wedding, I highly recommend it. I'm awed by and grateful for her story, and the story of so many others brave enough to share their light.

Scarborough Maine Wedding Photographer | Ceci + Tyler

Ceci + Tyler were married at Serenity Farm on August 22nd, 2015. Not only did the location boast a beautiful landscape and backdrop, but it offered true serenity as a private residence and home of a very kind relative. The weather was perfect, the horses showed off their trots and saunters, the eats by Fire & Co. were incredible and I do not think there was a dry eye during the ceremony.

Ceci + Tyler decided to get married over a year ago-- between picking their date and this beautiful weekend day in August, their little family grew from two to three! Ceci + Tyler are expecting! Of course, this made the celebration and joining of families that much more emotional... and absolutely joyous.

Gorgeous landscape, intimate atmosphere, horses, pond, forrest and field aside, the most memorable part of the day was when Tyler went running down the aisle to meet Ceci half way, lifted her vail, held her and kissed her deeply. He just could not wait for her to come to him-- it was one of the sweetest moments I have ever had the honor of witnessing. Tears of joy rolling down my face, I will never forget this and neither will they.

To say that I am grateful is an understatement-- to Ceci + Tyler, for being real and really in love, to Wendy Caron of Dragonfly Events for her smooth and meticulous planning and coordination, and to Deb Bergeron, mother of the groom, for all of the life-altering coaching hours she has spent with me in the past... for encouraging me to follow my heart and pursue this career I love so dearly. What brilliant surprises the Universe holds for us when we follow our hearts.

A big congratulations to Ceci, Tyler and little Charlie-- about to experience the best family a little boy could ever ask for!  <3
