In the small town of Hollis, NH is Beaver Brook, an environmental association tucked into the woods on a gorgeous sprawling farm. Stone walls, little barns, thoughtfully planned gardens in every direction and the setting for Liz and Scott’s wedding reception. It couldn’t get any more beautiful! I fell in love with Hollis, a town I had never visited before and know exactly why they chose to celebrate in the brides home town. Even the cozy church in the center of town that Liz grew up attending captured our hearts. It’s yet another reason whey I LOVE photographing in New England!

Every little detail of this wedding was put together by Liz and so much of their personalities were present. Fun sunglasses, always popular Koozies, custom made robes for the ladies and of course, that cake table topper! But the highlight of the reception was hands down the toast from the father of the bride. I have heard many a toast and even I couldn’t help but shed a tear! A standing ovation followed his heartfelt words to the newlyweds. I don’t think anything will ever top the lovely humor and emotional sentiments he shared. Once the applause settled and hugs were exchanged the groomsmen did a quick change into tuxedo t-shirts! Perfect for the moves they were about to bust on the dance floor with the dueling pianos playing! This band played all by request and knew how to please the crowd with a mix of their own versions of some classic party songs. It was an amazing celebration for Liz and Scott and we hope that the celebration continues for years to come for this fun loving couple! Cheers to you both!


If you could place an order for your perfect wedding day weather you would be ordering up what Molly and Travis had for their Nantucket wedding. Blue bird skies with a soft ocean breeze (perfect for Molly’s veil!) it was just spectacular! But if you know these two then you would want nothing short of spectacular for them on their big day. The energy, excitement and love that filled the room when these two entered was something special.

Molly and Travis left some time after their ceremony to visit some of the islands most picturesque location. We loved visiting Main Street, Cobble Stone Hill, Brant Point and a few little spots in between with them and their families. It was so fun to take our time and get to know the whole wedding party along the way! And pretty darn amazing to have all this time for photos!!!!

Cheers to you Molly and Travis! We hope that the rest of your lives together are just as amazing as your wedding day was.

Anthony and Tyler celebrated their wedding day with an intimate ceremony and luncheon amongst family and close friends in Kennebunkport, Maine. The ceremony took place on the beautiful grounds of the Cape Arundel Inn over looking the ocean with champagne to follow.  John Tavano played the classical guitar through lunch which perfectly complimented the story telling and laughter amongst guests. Being able to not only witness but to capture the excitement and joy that everyone felt for these two was such a treat! We were so happy to have been a part of this special day filled with nothing but love for Anthony and Tyler. We wish you many more year of happiness together!! Cheers!

There are so many things about Sarah and Brendan’s Prout’s Neck wedding we just loved! The amazing details like the custom flag flying over head at the Prout’s Neck Yacht Club, the painted buoys adorning trees at all of the important places that were part of their celebration, El’s custom calligraphy on the mussel shells decorating the head table, Kate’s glowing string lights and sail installation hung over the dance floor, but the best part by far was getting to know this amazing couple and their family and friends. It was such a treat to be a part of this special day. Congratulations Sarah and Brendan! We wish you many years of happiness together!

Kennebunkport Festival

Over the past year we have had the privilege of photographing some of greater Portland’s best chefs. The upcoming Kennebunkport Festival has us nostalgic for all the wonderful dinners we have seen these chefs prepare. The Festival will feature some chefs preparing intimate dinners in private Kennebunkport homes as well as at other small events over the course of the week. The list includes Earth at Hidden Pond, David’s, Back Bay Grill, Piccolo, Vinland, and Petite Jacqueline among others. Looking at the line up of events for the upcoming festival, it is sure to be an amazing time had by all. To gear up for the festival eats, check out some of the chefs in action in these photos taken at the Flanagan’s Table monthly dinner series. We hope to see all of you out and about at the festival this week!

The weather in New England is FINALLY getting warmer and that has us excited for family beach portraits! We still have a couple of weeks until the official start of Summer vacation but now is the time to start thinking about your family portraits. We offer on location sessions in Southern Maine as well as Nantucket. Get in touch to secure your session date and talk about location ideas!

We couldn’t limit this day of shooting in Bar Harbor to just ONE blog post! So much work goes into putting together these shoots for Real Maine Wedding Magazine so we thought a follow up with some of our favorite looks and a bit of the behind the scenes action was in order. Matt from LMV Productions was on site all day capturing the fun so be sure to watch the film at the bottom of the blog post. He captured the silliness, energy, people and amazing locations that made this day such a success. It takes a team to make sure that every little hair is in place, the right bouquet accompanies the right look and that someone chases down the veil when it flies off a models head! Cheers to the this team that made it all looks so easy!

 

Maine is a pretty spectacular place to get married. With it’s many, many… MANY coastal communities the seaside location options are endless! When Real Maine Weddings magazine asked us to head North to Bar Harbor to photograph their special gown section for the current issue we couldn’t get on the road fast enough! Bar Harbor is not only a great place to visit but the trip up is pretty fun too! We cruised up route 1 stopping to hit our favorite flea markets, antique shops and lunch spots of course!  (If you’ve ever made the trip you know what we are talking about.) Once there you realize it’s so much more than just a coastal town with quaint streets, top notch restaurants and unique artists. It’s hiking, biking, boating and sightseeing! It’s one coastal town not to be missed.

Real Maine Weddings magazine puts together two publications each year and in each issue you can find a special section dedicated to stunning gowns found right here in Maine. We have been lucky enough to work with this team in the past photographing gowns and are thrilled to share our shoot from Bar Harbor. We got SO lucky with amazing Spring weather and took advantage of all that this picturesque part of the State has to offer. There is a lot of inspiration to share from this all day shoot so let’s start with what’s in the current issue of Real Maine Weddings. You can find it on shelves right now so be sure to pick one up or order a copy online.

He’s here! Our baby boy Declan was born on January 24th in a snow storm… fitting for this winter we’ve been having! We have been cozied up ever sense enjoying every little smile and snuggle this boy has to offer us. It’s been an amazing experience and I want to say thank you for all the support we have received. We want to thank all of you for the many well wishes you have sent! Such amazing people we have surrounding us and Declan will soon realize just how lucky he is to have all these fantastic people in his life.

Motherhood is a very busy job (that’s actually an understatement!) And even though I have my camera out all the time, I have not had much time to photograph our little nugget!   The first few weeks are honestly a blur but I was able to snap a few shots during his first bath at home and in between those many many… many outfit changes. After a couple of weeks though I quickly realized I needed the help of a professional and called upon my dear friend and fellow photographer Melissa Mullen. She visited us at home and photographed my husband Scott and I with our little guy. Such a treasure to have these images and to actually be in a photo with Declan!  So… meet Declan, he’s pretty darn handsome if I do say so myself!
