I have to be honest, Valentine’s Day is one of my most favorite “holidays”.  Maybe it’s the cute little notes we share with one another or my memories of living in Portland, Maine and the Valentine’s Bandit leaving his mark everywhere. But really, what’s not to love about celebrating the ones you love!?! So rather than send out our traditional holiday cards, this year we opted for a sweeter option… Valentine’s!!! We want to thank all of you who have chosen us to photograph your love. After all, weddings, e-sessions, family portraits and babies are all about LOVE and we are so lucky to have worked with amazing people who cherish and understand the importance of capturing these special moments in our lives. So, on this Valentine’s Day we want to say we love and appreciate all of you who have been a part of allowing us to do what WE love! XOXO!

Many thanks to Gus & Ruby Letterpress for our custom made Valentine’s!

It’s February and this month is the month of LOVE! So we have decided to dedicate all blog posts this month to all things love…. it’s what we photograph after all! So let’s kick it off where it all begins for us and talk about engagement sessions!

You’ve probably heard this before, but let us say it again; setting up an engagement session is definitely a “do” when you hire your photographer. Here at our studio, we include them for all interested couples, with our packages – for you and for us!

Having an e-session (as we like to call them) helps us get to know you as a couple in front of the camera, it helps with any jitters or shyness you might have and it helps you get to know us. (You’ll see, we’re just a couple of fun-loving New England gals who love a good love story and can’t wait to tell your wedding story.)

Another great reason to get on the e-session bandwagon is for Save the Date cards! Photo Save the Dates are a great way to share the exciting news with your friends and family and it gives you a chance to brag a little – and that’s perfectly okay… you are about to marry the love of your life after all! Our studio is now offering 6 customizable Save the Date cards in two sizes – 4 X 6 and 5 X 7.  Turn the card of your choice into a postcard and add a note to your recipients with our different “back” options or keep the backs plain and present them in a fun envelope (we’re partial to the ones with a fun liner – glitter, stripes, metallic…)

Here are our 6 brand-spankin’ new card designs!
