Julie | Portrait Session! | Maine Lifestyle Photographer!

This is Julie, an awesome lady that I met thanks to Facebook! She was interested in doing a shoot with her and her two doggies, and her husband Mike came along as pup wrangler… and he managed to sneak in a few photos, too.  🙂 We chose Fuller Farms in Scarborough (the link there is actually from Julie’s blog!), and it was gorgeous… lots of tall grass, flowers, and absolutely no one around but us. Really awesome! Julie rocked her shoot, and the dogs were surprisingly cooperative — the crazy heat may have helped with that. 😉 Also, if any of you readers are looking for a day school for your own puppies, check out Julie’s! It’s called Dances with Dogs in South Portland, Maine, and from what I can tell she is very successful, and popular among the dog world. 🙂

Heidi & Mike | Family Session! | Maine Family & Lifestyle Photographer!

This is Heidi and Mike, two AWESOME parents who I got to spend the morning with back in June (of 2011… wow, I am behind with blog posts!). They have three amazing boys who also came along to the shoot, and we basically just spent the morning playing at Willard Beach in South Portland, Maine. How lucky am I? At the time, they lived right down the street from Willard Beach, so it was an obvious choice for their family session location. Their boys were HILARIOUS and so fun to play with, and Heidi and Mike were excellent — the five of them spent the whole shoot laughing, playing, and exploring together. Lucky kids. Enjoy!

Jen & Jon | Married! 06.25.11 | Portland Company Complex Wedding | Maine Wedding Photographer

This is Jen & Jon on their wedding day! I just recently posted photographs from their rehearsal dinner, which was amazing, but Saturday was the big day. Natasha and I met Jen at the Hilton Garden Inn, and Natasha got to work on Jen’s makeup. We then headed down to the water so Jen & Jon could do some First Look photos, which were awesome! If you’re considering doing them, I vote YES! They’re always extremely emotional, and it’s a fantastic time for the couple to see each other and spend a few quiet moments together before the chaos of the day. They had their ceremony on one of Portland’s Discovery Boats, which was awesome, and then headed to the Portland Company Complex for their reception. I absolutely loved the look of this place, both inside and out. Very industrial, lots of exposed brick, and just an extremely unique reception spot… very fitting for Jen & Jon’s wedding day! After the reception we headed to Bubba’s Sulky Lounge for some crazy light-up-floor dance action. 😉

Jen & Jon | Rehearsal Dinner! 06.24.11 | Maine Wedding Photographer!

This is Jen and Jon, and their very casual rehearsal dinner! They got together with some of their guests at Jen’s parents’ home in Portland and dined on some delicious snacks while having a beer tasting. What’s better than that? Each room of the house was filled with laughing, chatting people, and the beer flowed all night – they even sent me home with a few bottles of beer that Jon’s family had home-brewed. Awesome!

Emily & Jesse | Married! 06.18.11 | SMCC Wedding | Maine Wedding Photographer

This is Emily and Jesse! They had a very laid-back and fun wedding day, making sure they were surrounded by their friends and family and people who made them laugh the most. Emily got ready at her parents’ home in South Portland, which definitely added to the low-key feeling of the day, and had her best guy friend as her Man of Honor, which I think is just awesome. They started at the Cape Elizabeth United Methodist Church (gorgeous both inside and out), where they had a beautiful ceremony and where Emily’s parents’ dog was the “ring bearer” (but mostly just slept in the aisle!). Then we headed to SMCC for their reception, which was hilarious thanks to some of Jesse’s friends. 🙂

Casey & Nate | Married! 06.17.11 | Lucerne Inn Wedding | Maine Wedding Photographer!

This is Casey and Nate, another one of the most laid-back couples EVER. They were married at the gorgeous St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Ellsworth, Maine, and had their reception at the (supposedly haunted) Lucerne Inn in Dedham. They are just a gorgeous couple, both inside and out — extremely genuine, happy, and sincere, and Nate could make you laugh for HOURS with his effortless (and very dry) sense of humor. I loved spending the day with them and their family and friends — particularly Casey’s little niece, who I was absolutely smitten by!

By the way — that’s Casey’s brother on the keyboard for their first dance, and Nate’s cousin singing them an original song later in the reception. How amazing is that?

Erin & Jim | Married! 06.06.11 | Fort Williams Wedding | Maine Wedding Photographer

This is Erin and Jim! They were actually married in Cancun, so when Jim initially e-mailed me my heart jumped at the idea of possibly getting flown to Mexico for a destination wedding. But, alas… they still had a super gorgeous ceremony here on the coast of Maine. 😉 They knew some of their older relatives wouldn’t be able to make the trip to Cancun, so they were sweet enough to do a private ceremony just for them at Fort Williams in Cape Elizabeth. It was short and sweet, the weather was perfect, and Jim and Erin are gorgeous enough to be freakin’ MODELS. Thanks for making my life easy, you two.  😀

Nikki & Dan | Married! 06.11.11 | Falmouth Country Club Wedding | Maine Wedding Photographer

This is Nikki and Dan, two of the most laid-back people ever! I feel like I say that a lot, but I’m pretty sure I just constantly luck out in the client department and get relaxed, happy couples to work with. They were married at the Falmouth Country Club on a cloudy, sprinkly day in June. Unfortunately their ceremony got moved inside, but they barely even batted an eye… all that mattered is that they were getting married! As you can see, Nikki is STUNNING, and Dan’s love for her is so obvious and sweet. They had a blast all day, and they even hired my FAVORITE DJ EVER: Nick Moul of Perfect Sound DJs. He’s based in Rhode Island but he travels all over… hire him! Now enjoy these photos.  🙂

Kristin & Luke | Married! 06.04.11 | Bethel Inn Wedding | Maine Wedding Photographer

This is Kristin and Luke! They were married at The Bethel Inn in Bethel, Maine, and it was an absolutely PERFECT day to get married. They had several rooms rented at these condos right down the street from the inn, so they were able to get ready close by — and even had their dog, Chloe, present. 🙂 They had their ceremony right on the 18th green, and it had the most incredible mountain view. The reception took place right across the street at one of their smaller buildings, and wound up being a crazy dance party… not that I expected any different.  🙂 Kristin did a huge portion of the decoration and designing herself, and actually has recently started up her own event planning business, so check her out if you need a planner for your wedding or any other event or party!

Katie | Rock the Dress! | Maine Bridal Photographer

This is Katie! A while back we decided to take her wedding dress out for a spin around Two Lights State Park in Cape Elizabeth (she was married on Halloween a few years ago). I loved her dress, but I loved her black and white striped socks even more.  😉
