Last fall I traveled North to a part of Maine I rarely get the chance to visit for an editorial bridal gown shoot at the New England Outdoor Center. It was breathtaking! Upon arrival I toured the property with their staff walking the trails to cozy cabins in the woods, scenic outlooks and jaw dropping mountain views. There really couldn’t be anything better for a photoshoot!
I spent the night in their lake front cabin chatting with our talented team and reviewing the looks and styling ideas for the following day’s full schedule of shooting. I love working with a creative team to bring an idea to life! Hair, Make-up, the dresses, jewelry, flowers and cake were all thoughtfully selected in the weeks leading up to the shoot and it was time to put it all together in this beautiful place!
I am so thrilled to see one of my shots on the cover of the current issue of Real Maine Weddings! You can snag a copy right now to see their full feature of the shoot. It truly does take a team to bring this all to life so I thought it would be fun to share a few behind the scenes along with some of our favorite shots from the day!
