My 2016 year was full of wonderfully sweet couples who planned some of the most heartfelt, beautiful celebrations of love to share with their family and friends. Wedding season for me began in April, with an intimate wedding in Portland that came together after just a few months of planning, and the season wound down with a sweet wedding at my favorite venue in Camden. In between, there were trips to Biddeford Pool, Kennebunkport, Wiscasset, Bath, Southport Island, Harpswell, Rockport, and Bailey Island. I even had the chance to work alongside some of my dearest friends while documenting their talents for our clients.
I photographed four dogs as wedding guests, ten grandparents sharing sentiments of wisdom, and five getaways by boat. My first special needs couple had me in a puddle of tears as they shared their first dance, while another weekend, the heartfelt and humorous words of a brother-turned-best man had me wiping away tears of laughter. There were fireworks, sparklers, handcrafted chuppahs, and even a Land Rover Defender bedecked in flowers. But mostly, there was love – a lot of it. And joy. And laughter. And the kind of happiness that sends you home with a full heart, knowing that you were given the opportunity to capture it all.
A special thanks to the couples who invited me to share in one of their happiest days, their families who made me feel welcome, and the vendors who continually make my job easier. Cheers to a wonderful year!
