I have to be honest, Valentine’s Day is one of my most favorite “holidays”. ┬áMaybe 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 time to start thinking about your Maine wedding plans and one of my favorite local publications Maine. has just come out with their 2012 wedding issue! When asked, we jumped at the chance to collaborate with this creative group of wedding pro’s to create a featured inspiration shoot for the issue. With a team that included attire from Madeleine’s Daughter, Design and flowers from Beautiful Days, custom paper from Gus & Ruby Letterpress and the most mouth watering sweets from Aurora Provisions how could anyone go wrong!!!! And what better location than Portland’s own waterfront venue The Portland Company, not your average waterfront spot!

Inspired by a 40’s pinup style our favorite hair and make-up team of Joya Beauty and Hair that Moves created glamor with our models. There is so much more to see from this shoot so be sure to check out the film from Meg Simone that shows off behind the scenes action and scoop from the team on how we put together all these design details.
