Morgan & Stephen are getting married at the Bar Harbor Historical Society this summer and I can’t wait to document all of the special moments in one of my favorite places in Maine. Bar Harbor holds a special place in my heart because it’s where Brett and I got engaged. Every time we go up there to document a wedding it brings us back to the moment Brett proposed on top of Cadillac Mountain in August of 2019. I’m also especially excited to document Morgan and Stephen’s wedding because they live in Denver and I lived in Colorado for 10 years so we share a lot in common. These two wanted to do their engagement session at the beach near Portland and I’m so happy they did because Willard Beach is one of my favorite places to document engagement sessions. In my opinion, shooting your engagement session at the beach is the way to go. Not only do you capture Maine’s incredible sunset but the pastel colors make for soft, romantic images. Take a look at Morgan and Stephen’s session below.

Kayla & Dean live in New York City. They decided to have a destination coastal wedding at The Viewpoint Hotel in York next summer and I can’t wait to capture all of the beautiful moments.

This night was extremely dreamy and all I have to say is Willard Beach is one of my new favorite locations to shoot engagement sessions. Morgan and Marc are typing the knot June 20222 at Beech Ridge Barn in Scarborough, Maine and I can’t wait to capture all of the amazing moments on their wedding day. In the meantime, I’ll be here loving everything about this session.

Alyssa and Alex are getting married in the Fall of 2022 at Black Point Inn. They drove up from Virginia to spend a month in Maine since Alyssa’s mother lives near Prouts Neck. I can’t wait to document all of the emotional and beautiful moments on their wedding day and it was so nice meeting them beforehand. I love building a connection with my couples before their wedding day because it eases nerves on the big day and it also allows me to understand what direction works best for each and every couple. For this reason I highly suggest booking a collection with an engagement session, you won’t regret it!

It’s officially cherry blossom season in Boston and it’s absolutely beautiful. Samantha and Andrew originally met in Boston, but made the move to New York City a few years ago. They currently live 4 blocks away from where I grew up! Small world. When they mentioned doing their session in Boston, I was very excited about. I love making the trip down there and since I grew up in a city, I enjoy the charming streets, parks and seaport. If you’re thinking of doing your engagement photos in the city, let’s chat! Some of my favorite places are Boston Commons, Boston Seaport and Acorn Street. I can’t wait to document Sam and Andrew’s wedding in Massachusetts next year and until then, I’ll keep day dreaming of this beautiful evening in the park.

These two California love birds got engaged at Nubble Lighthouse last week and it was dreamy to say the least. They took a red eye flight from San Francisco to Boston and made the drive up to Maine. Krista’s parents own a summer house in York, so they decided to take a little New England vacation from the west coast. Jon hired the band, Radio Revival, to play their favorite song and I pretended to casually snap photos for the band’s website. Jon’s proposal cue came when he took his hat off. This was one of the most thoughtful proposals I’ve ever documented and it was so cute that Krista’s parents were hiding in the parking lot. Cheers to Krista & Jon

When Brandon reached out and was extremely excited about proposing to his then girlfriend Jessica. He had an entire plan ready to go for months.

Brandon convinced Jessica’s boss to do a “vacation giveaway” for the employees of her company. All of her colleges said they couldn’t participate since they had other plans, so Jessica won. Little did she know, Brandon set up the entire giveaway to Cliff House so that he could propose at the beautiful resort. It was pouring rain that afternoon so Brandon and I were texting back and forth about where the best rain free location would be. In the last second right before he proposed the skies held off and the rain stopped. This was one of the most magical proposals I’ve ever documented and even a rainbow made an appearance.

James and Kristin are getting married next September at the York Golf & Tennis Club. They just bought a house in Southern Maine after spending a handful of years in Boston. Like many couples living in cities, they decided to move to the suburbs once the reality of COVID set in. The happiness between these two is extremely contagious, which makes me that more excited to capture their wedding next season.

Taylor emailed me a few days before her session and asked if she could bring her Frenchie named Oliver. I immediately jumped for joy as I have two frenchies, one whose name is Olive. There is a certain connection that Frenchie owners have and I just couldn’t get enough of this little guy.

Taylor and Ryan are getting married at Beech Hill Barn next August. They’re wedding is going to be relaxed, modern, and romantic. I can’t wait to document all of the beautiful moments and to watch these two tie the knot.

I photographed Abi & David’s engagement session at Willard Beach in South Portland, Maine. The weather that September evening was perfect. Abi’s wedding palette includes pastel colors; soft pinks, blues, beige, and blush. Her vision for this session was to create a beautiful picnic incorporating all of those colors. The pastel colors of the sunset paired flawlessly with the soft tones of her picnic. This was one dreamy cotton candy engagement session.
