The wedding of Maggie and Adam was one of the highlights of my career! I had always dreamed of shooting a christmas themed wedding. While Maine's spring, summer and fall are gorgeous, it's winter is my favorite. It's a really photogenic period of time for the state. There are so many festive decorations everywhere, such a cozy feel to everything, and of course SNOW. Not only does snow make everything beautiful, it's a great natural reflector for lighting subjects. Maggie and Adam decided to have their wedding on December 23rd at The Black Tie Company's Camp Hammond in Yarmouth Maine. The camp was just a little ways from Maggie's family farm. Maggie's mother Danielle is such a great decorator. My mouth practically started watering when I pulled up to their home and saw all the rustic and holiday decorations that were put up. Her and her husband used to be wedding photographers themselves so it comes as no surprise that they have such a great eye for decor. The weather wasn't ideal but I wasn't disappointed in the slightest! I think that because we had to alter our plans we ended up with the best backdrops. Instead of doing a first look outside we used one of the two barns with Adam in the barn and Maggie outside with her adorable red umbrella. We had members of the bridal party slide the doors open for a very sweet and dramatic reveal. We then did family formals in their gorgeously decorated living room. It worked out perfectly and I'm almost thankful for the rain as in the end it gave us the best results. After their first look and pictures we went over to their ceremony and reception at Camp Hammond. Camp Hammond is the perfect spot for a winter wedding. The dim lighting and set up give it a very romantic feel. The ceremony spot was set up so that guests could all watch from the second floor looking down. This was so unique and made the service feel very inclusive. Later, the band played and speeches were given from the second floor with all the guests on the dance floor below. It was a great use of space and something you don't see at every wedding! We ended the night with a sparkler exit. Christmas, unique and beautiful settings, great and meaningful toasts AND sparklers!? Sign me up! Thank you so much Maggie, Adam, and family for having me! Congratulations!
Thanks to the great team that helped make Maggie and Adam's wedding the unforgettable experience that it was!
