Kings Hill Inn and Barn Wedding/ Rachel and Ben

South Paris, Maine

weddings at kings hill inn

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.

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.

Portland Maine City Hall Wedding/ Samara and Adam

Portland Maine City Hall Wedding

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!!!

I have some pretty exciting news to share today! A couple of weeks ago I was approached by the editor of Real Maine Weddings magazine and asked to be featured on their blog! I was so pumped. I've always been grateful about having such an awesome publication that exclusively supports the Maine wedding industry. Of course I wanted to be featured on their blog! I was sent a list of questions that addressed both my own personal journey in photography and advice for couples planning their wedding. I was also asked to submit fifteen images for them to put with the post. I had a blast going through my archives and finding images that I feel best show what I aim for in my work- happy, fun, and real moments (and some pretty details too!). To see the full interview click on over HERE ! And as always thanks for coming along on my journey and letting me pop in and photograph yours!
