And now it’s time to share Molly and Mike’s wedding day! What a treat to get to travel down to Boston, see these two and then shoot their special day at Harvard University. I’ll check that off my wedding dream bucket list! The campus was a perfect spot for a wedding. They got to use dorm rooms as getting ready spaces and all the neat architecture and close proximity to the Boston skyline and bridges made for great spots for portraits. It also felt like a mini reunion with some of the bridal party and guest list being similar to the wedding of Nicole and Dan’s last year. Molly had been a bridesmaid in Nicole’s wedding so I got to see her and Mike there too. Can’t wait for the next person from that group to get married and hopefully do it all again :). To say that I felt lucky to be chosen as their wedding photographer is an understatement. Thank you Molly and Mike a million times over for picking me! Here are a few favorites from their day!
South Paris, Maine
I'm so excited to start sharing the amazing weddings I've gotten to photograph lately! It's been a wonderful summer and looking back at the first few months of the season makes me so happy to know it's not over yet! I've got 5 more in September and October and boy am I ready!
Today I'd love to share the wedding of Rachel and Ben. They got married at King's Hill Inn and Barn in South Paris Maine. It was my first time shooting at the venue and I fell in love instantly. The owners have done a wonderful job of thinking of all that you'd need to have a gorgeous and stress free wedding. There were many options for backdrops outside that we used and then when the rain started we didn't fret at all since there were some equally beautiful indoor options as well.
The whole day was so touching. The first look, the vows, the speeches- all got my with the feels. What I think touched me most though was how much Ben and Rachel took the time to honor their grandparents. They had three flower-grandmothers and special charms on Rachel's bouquet and Ben's boutonniere with pictures of grandparents who have passed away. Rachel gave me a heads up about this to make sure we got photos of the moments they showed the charms to those who loved them. Those photos are some of my favorite in the bunch. Thank you so much for having me Rachel and Ben! Congratulations <3.
Rachel and Ben took the opportunity during family formals to show their grandparents the charms they had made with her photos of their grandparents that were no longer there. CRY EMOJI HERE.
Remember Samara and Adam from my first wedding of 2018 back in February!? (If not- you can find their wedding HERE). Well- I had the pleasure of getting to see them again a couple of weeks back to document their growing family! These two are expecting a baby boy in August and I'm really excited for them. Samara was just glowing and Adam was an obviously happy-father-to-be. This is one loved baby and getting to photograph these two at yet another big moment in their lives felt so special. For their pictures we timed it just right so we could hit my favorite Lupine field at peak! Thank you so much for keeping me as your photographer! Here are a few of my favorite's from their maternity session.

If my 2018 wedding season is anything like my first wedding of the year then it's going to be one amazing year. I was so excited when Samara emailed me in January looking for a photographer for her and Adam's wedding in February. When I found out that they were marrying at one of my all time favorite backdrops- Portland City Hall, I just about jumped out of my seat. I've always loved the architecture of Portland City Hall but had never had the opportunity to go inside and photograph with it's gorgeous staircase. Often times when I shoot there the building is locked since it's only open during regular business hours. It was such a treat to get to use the whole place! They have started offering weekend wedding spots making it an amazing option for a ceremony site in Portland, Maine.
And it somehow gets even better- Samara and Adam decided to do the gender reveal of their baby at the wedding as well. Love, beautiful surroundings and people, AND babies. It's an understatement to say that I felt like one lucky photographer that day. Thank you so much Samara and Adam for having me photograph your wedding. Getting to start 2018 with your special day was an amazing way to kick things off. Congratulations!!!
