Sara + Matt’s Nautical Wedding in Camden, Maine


Sara and Matt had an intimate wedding in Camden, Maine. They met on our first day of graduate school back in 2011 at the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences at Stony Brook University. They were both students in the same research group, working for the same advisor, and shared the same office. Fate? Their friendship grew very strong, which blossomed into a relationship during their second year.

In graduate school, Sara changed her desktop background to a beautiful photo that she found when she googled “fall foliage New England harbor” but didn’t recognize the location from her limited travels. Matt noticed that the photo was actually from the town he grew up visiting his grandparents in — Camden, ME. He said the photo was taken from the top of Mt. Battie and would love to take her up there one day.

Camden holds many special memories for these two and it was a joy to document their love in such a special place.
