On Saturday, February 8th, we will be hosting our popular Camera 101 workshop at our studio in York, Maine! This is perfect for those of you who got that new camera under the Christmas tree this year or made a new year’s resolution to take better pictures of your family and friends. We will go over all those fancy buttons on your camera that look so scary and give you all the tools you need to take great pictures! You don’t have to be a professional photographer to take our workshop so bring your camera and questions and join us on February 8th. Seating is limited, so contact us soon to sign up.

It’s here! It’s time! I am getting married this week! It seems like it snuck right up on me, maybe because I have been a little busy this summer with all our wonderful wedding couples and beach portraits. Or maybe it’s because my amazing team of wedding professionals have it all under control! Might be a little bit of both. Scott is in the throws of the world series and I am feverishly trying to finish up last minute details. BUT, I thought now might be the time to share our engagement session photos on the blog (better late then never!). The fab Heidi took us to the beach, one of our favorite spots, with our other two favorite things. Milo our 1 year old Corgi puppy and Scott’s ’91 VW Vanagon. We kept it real.

I will be out of the office for the next week trying to soak up every last minute of our wedding festivities. Heidi is in the office holding down the fort so please feel free to give her a call or touch base via e-mail with any of your orders, questions or needs.

Vanessa and Flip were married in York, Maine on a perfect fall day. I was over the moon to be able to photograph these two. It wasn’t because it was just down the road from “home” or that the day was gorgeous or that they left extra time to do fun beach portraits. None of that. (that was all awesome of course!) It was because these two make you want to smile. They are so in love and their wedding was a day to celebrate that. I might be partial, I have known Vanessa from my college days but seeing how she and Flip have made a life together just had me that much more excited to be there for the two of them! Vanessa and Flip I wish you all the happiness you two can handle! I hope you two always smile, giggle and celebrate the way you did on your wedding day!

Gorgeous bouquets from Abby Chic.

Hiring us as your wedding photographer is a big decision. We think it’s so important that you feel comfortable with the wedding photographer you choose to capture these intimate life moments! With work, travel, school and just life in general getting in the way of all of our couples meeting up in person I asked my dear friend and talented colleague Meg Simone to put together a film that would share a bit about our style for those interested in learning more about our work! It’s short and sweet and shows off all the amazing parts of New England that we LOVE to photograph.

Tis the season to celebrate! We kicked off the Holidays by throwing a party in combination with the Festival of Lights parade that passes by our studio in downtown York Village, Maine.  There was all sorts of fun to be had  including, hot toddies, yummy treats, a photo booth, and even a fresh dusting of snow. Kate Martin of Beautiful Days Events worked her magic on our studio giving it the perfect festive ambiance and friends and family  brought their holiday cheer making it a very wonderful evening. Wishing you all very festive Holiday season!!
