What a privilege it was to be a part of this dinner series! The Boston Planners Dining Club is a rotating dinner series aiming to showcase the talent and ideas of the area’s wedding professionals. These events are so important in bringing us all together to get some face to face time and continue to connect in the “off season”. The gorgeous White Barn Inn was the setting and let me just say this was one of the top 5 meals of my life! It was such a treat to take a seat at such a gorgeous table setting and not only photograph but experience what the creative team put together. There is nothing I love more than being part of such a creative community here in New England!
If you were to ask me what I thought of getting married on your family’s property overlooking the water…I’ll always vote YES! Spaces that are special to you and your loved ones make for such magical celebrations creating more history and memories! The fog rolled in on Liz’s family home and settled in for the night’s events. It was cozy, magical and oh so romantic! An amazingly talented team of Maine wedding professionals came together to knock this one out of the park! From logistics, to the details, every element came together perfectly. Liz and Jon truly had the BEST day of their lives and it showed! Just look at those smiles!
This Summer I was so excited when Tyler and Sarah reached out for some family portraits! Always so fun to hear from my past wedding couples! I had the pleasure of photographing their wedding day in York, Maine and we returned to the very spot where they said “I do” to capture their new addition to the family. How sweet is he?! Such a sweet age, crawling and exploring and starting to toddle around. And those toes! I love when my wedding couples think of me to capture their family!
I couldn’t think of a better time than now to take a look back at Leah and Jason’s New Hampshire wedding…they did just celebrate their one year anniversary after all! Leah and Jason got married right around Valentine’s Day last year at the beautiful Preserve at Chocorua in Tamworth, NH. A fresh blanket of snow, twinkle lights, a warm inviting barn, and a cozy fire were just a few details that made up this perfect winter wedding. I had such a great time capturing Leah and Jason’s celebration…I mean just look at her amazing smile and the happy tears from friends and family! I hope you two have enjoyed an amazing first year together and wish you all the happiness in the years to come. Cheers to you both!
What a treat it is to look back on Elissa and Sam’s Kennebunkport, Maine wedding! These two threw such a fun party with lots of laughs and happy tears included! We love when our couples tell us why they decided to get married in Maine. Elissa and Sam spent time in Kennebunkport making memories during their early relationship and they knew they just had to return to exchange their vows and celebrate with their nearest and dearest. We’re so thankful you came back to this special place to celebrate and that you chose us to capture all the fun!
You can hear more from Elissa on her planning process in their feature in Real Maine Weddings magazine!
When Pantone announced the color of the year for 2020 I pretty much jumped for joy! Classic blue….a timeless favorite and perfect for any New England wedding! I took a quick look back at some of the gorgeous ways our past clients worked classic blues into their wedding day. Here is a little dose of inspiration… I can’t wait to see what 2020 brings!
‘Tis the season for giving and we have some fun ideas for someone special. One of the most thoughtful gifts we can recommend to you is a family portrait session. Have you ever had the best family vacation of your lives and found yourself wishing you had photos to look back on? Or, how many times is mom or dad behind the lens but not in any of the photos? We have met so many families that return to Maine every year and we just love the opportunity to capture those memories for them to remember. Email us to purchase your gift certificate and when your trip gets closer we can set a date for your portrait session. Sessions include an online gallery so the whole family can view the photos no matter where they are!
This past summer I was able to photograph some pretty amazing events, however the Full Plates Full Potential event at Flanagan’s Farm was surely one for the books! Full Plates Full Potential is an organization working to eradicate child hunger in the state of Maine. Currently 1 in 5 children in Maine alone are food insecure and Full Plates Full Potential is working around the clock to reduce that number to 0. I am always honored to take photos for this important organization here in Maine and this event was no exception.
On May 19th, 2019, Full Plates Full Potential hosted a charity dinner featuring many of greater Portland’s James Beard award winning chefs to kick off their summer season and it was just AMAZING. The action in the kitchen, the delicious food, and all of the great people that came together to donate to such a great cause made for a memorable evening. Here are a few of my favorites from the night.
Full Plates Full Potential is always hosting events and accepting donations! Visit their website here to learn more!
