Nikki and Dan were married on a spring day last June at the beautiful Hardy Farm. These two have a love so sweet and so comfortable that you can't help but just say "Awwwwww" every time you see them together. Their day was full of family, friends and so much joy! Hand in hand they started their lives together and I'm so honored to have been able to document it.
After starting to plan a big shin-dig for 2018, Kaela and Ryan decided that an intimate coastal Maine wedding was just what they wanted to celebrate the start of their forever. They wanted to be surrounded by their families and keep things simple, sweet and about what really matters- LOVE.
I was beyond honored to document their start of forever and I can't tell you how much I enjoy shooting these somewhat more low-key, small, intimate weddings. Kaela and Ryan got ready at The Grand Hotel in Kennebunkport which made for the perfect backdrop for some beautiful getting ready portraits and details before we ventured over to The Scoop Deck for their first look! **Can I just tell you that anyone getting married and wanting to do a first look at an ice cream shop- please call me!!! Anything ice cream and wedding related makes my heart happy!**
The ceremony was simple perfection. Preformed by the wonderful Erika Hewitt and standing under the tree where Ryan proposed they promised forever surrounded by their families. We took just a few more moments after the ceremony for some family photos and then headed to the beach for one last set of portraits an the beautiful soft blues and grays of the Maine coast didn't disappoint!!!
Kaela and Ryan's wedding day was a dream. It was just the sweet and simple, all about love, surrounded by family type of event that speaks to my heart. I can't wait to continue to focus my business on these intimate weddings and spend more and more of my time with amazing couples like these two!
** Huge shout out to Nora of SP Films for being my partner in crime for documenting Kaela and Ryan's Wedding day- defiantly check her out if you are looking for a videographers- she's seriously one the THE BEST out there!!**
As I sit here in early October all I can do is wonder where this year has gone. The days and months have flown by and I've been so busy keeping up with all my amazing 2017 couples that I've totally dropped the ball on sharing my last wedding of 2016 and all the wonderful weddings and shoots from 2017. So now that wedding season is starting to wind down I thought I'd take a few moments and bring you back to those cold days of December 2016 for one of my all time favorite winter weddings.
Danielle and Matt have something special. These two absolutely light up when they are together, their smiles are joy are totally infectious and you can't help but smile when you are around them. They were graced with beautiful fresh snow just before their wedding which gave us that perfect cozy, winter wedding feel! I know you will love these images as much as I do so without further ado and only 10 months after the fact - here are some of my favorite images of Danielle and Matt's wedding day.

Ben and Leah share a love that is so full of joy that just being around them makes your heart light. They smile, laugh and exude happiness in every moment together and that makes for an amazing wedding day! Their friends and family gathered for not just a wedding day but for a whole wedding weekend. Thats the amazing part of Kingsley Pines- its a summer camp where your wedding isn't just one day- its a whole weekend with bon fires, s'mores, swimming in the lake and lots of time spent with the most important people in your life.
I admit I have a soft spot for Summer Camps and I know Leah does as well as she and I spent many summers together at our own summer camp in New Hampshire. Even thought this wasn't our childhood summer camp I'm willing to bet that their early October day was the best summer camp memory she has.
Sarah and Josh are one of those couples who are just fun. They laugh and smile and live life to the fullest.
These two tied the knot back in September on a beautiful day in Jackson, NH at one of my all time favorite wedding venues Whitney's Inn. They had a wedding full of family, friends and smiles. Here are a few of my favorite photos from their wedding day.
