It was such a delight to be a part of Caitlin & Sam’s Live Well Farm wedding celebration earlier this July. Their family and friends gathered in Harpswell, not too far from where Caitlin lived while she was a student at Bowdoin, to celebrate the union of this sweet couple. Caitlin & Sam were married in a field overlooking Mackerel Cove on Bailey Island by their brother-in-law. Afterwards back in Harpswell the guests mingled around the beautiful Live Well Farm property, sampling bites from 111 Maine, admiring the beautiful flowers by Broadturn Farm, and dancing to the tunes of the Bob Charest Band. The talented ladies of Amy Mae Design were on site, working behind the scenes to make sure that everything was just as perfect as Caitlin & Sam had imagined it would be.
The following are just a handful of my many favorite images from this gorgeous wedding celebration.

What a treat it was to be a part of Nicole & Tom’s Camden wedding last month! The two were married in the Camden Amphitheatre, overlooking the harbor in the center of town. Camden Amphitheatre / Yacht Club weddings are always some of my favorites. It’s hard to beat the location and views from both sites, and the ride between the harbor and the yacht club on the CYC launch is always the best part of any wedding day! Nicole & Tom’s wedding was certainly no exception – we were blessed with wonderful weather and photographing such a genuinely kind couple is always a delight.
A special thanks to Kristen of Beehive Creative Events for her work behind the scenes to make sure everything went perfectly. The following are just a few of my very favorites from this very special wedding celebration!

What a treat it was to be back down on Cape Cod for Lauren & Adam’s Wychmere wedding! Harwich Port is one of the Cape’s most charming towns. This quintessential New England venue served to be the perfect destination for Adam’s family who traveled over to the states from the UK. It was a beautiful, albeit windy, day that I’ll aways think of with fondness.
Lauren and Adam are two kind, warm individuals, who value their family and friends above all. They planned the perfect weekend on the Cape to celebrate their marriage with their loved ones. I feel so lucky to have been a part of it all. The following photos are just a handful of favorite images from their bright, cheerful spring wedding!

CJ & Deniz were married last summer at the lovely Marianmade Farm in Wiscasset. These two were all smiles throughout their beautiful celebration, making my job as easy as could be. Plus, they brought their two adorable dogs up from New York to participate in the wedding, which is the fastest way to this dog-loving wedding photographer’s heart! Michael and I had a wonderful time photographing this sweet wedding and working alongside some of our favorite wedding vendors, including Daisies & Pearls, Michelle Peele, Ariel Johnson, Swan’s Way, The Event Light Pros, Brighter Lights Media, and the team at Marianmade!

I’m so excited to share that Kate & Jeff’s Marianmade Farm wedding is featured on Magnolia Rouge today! I photographed this beautiful early fall wedding back in September and had the chance to work alongside some of my favorite wedding vendors – Lindsey of L. Brook Events, Michelle Peele (my mother!), and the wonderful Abigale & Michael of Trillium Caterers.
Kate & Jeff were such a pleasure to photograph. They were so sweet, completely adorable together, and then even included their precious pup, Lola, in the photographs. These two made my job as easy and as enjoyable as could be!
To read Kate’s account of the day and see more photos, head on over to Magnolia Rouge.

Sarah and Jonathan were married in Portland earlier this month. The two traveled to Maine from Seattle to get married in their hometown, with their closest family and friends present for an intimate wedding at Tempo Dulu. I was honored to be a part of such a lovely event. Sarah and Jonathan are two of the kindest people I’ve worked with over the years. They vowed to build an “exceptional life” with one another throughout their marriage, and from what I saw from these two and heard during a round of fantastic toasts at the reception that evening, Sarah and Jonathan are already off to a great start with this promise.
I felt as though I had a smile on my face during Sarah & Jonathan’s entire wedding day, but I was hardly alone – everyone in attendance seemed overjoyed to be celebrating the union of this beloved couple and their dear families. The following are just a few of my (all too many) favorites from Sarah & Jonathan’s happiest day – enjoy!

I couldn’t have been happier to photograph Leslie & Dom’s Barn at Flanagan Farm wedding this past summer! I had a chance to meet these two for an engagement shoot a few months before their wedding and I knew from their warm personalities then, that their wedding weekend would be fantastic. How could it not live up to my lofty expectations? A sweet, photogenic, dog-loving couple getting married at one of the prettiest wedding venues in Maine – it was sure to be a favorite! Of course, working alongside some of my favorite wedding professionals – Sarah of Daisies & Pearls, Emily Carter, Ariel Johnson, and the folks at Trillium – was an added bonus. The team at The Event Light Pros did a fantastic job with the custom lighting installation, and Leslie’s cousin created one of the prettiest wedding cakes I’ve ever photographed. It’s a true honor to not only work with fantastic couples and their families on a wedding day, but to also collaborate on these special events with vendors I respect and admire.
The following photographs are just a few of my very favorites from this beautiful Flanagan Farm wedding – enjoy!

I brought along my Mamiya and one roll of Ektar – my favorite travel film – on our recent trip to Vermont. The slow, thoughtful process of shooting with this camera is a welcome change from working with my digital bodies and even my trusty 1V. It’s heavy (at least, to me) but the end results are always worth it.
Photographing Carey & Holly’s wedding aboard The Frances was certainly a highlight of my summer! These two lovely ladies traveled to Maine from South Carolina with just a handful of their closest family and friends to say their vows amidst the islands of Casco Bay, and I was incredibly fortunate to be on the boat, celebrating alongside them. Being a part of such a beautiful and intimate ceremony was truly a treat for me.
If a wedding while sailing through Casco Bay wasn’t enough, the evening was made even sweeter with goodies from Aurora Provisions and the songs of Pete Miller and his band. All of these details were carefully planned by Emily Elizabeth Events – the perfect formula for an amazing evening!

Emma & Glyn were married just a few weeks ago in the gorgeous backyard of Emma’s childhood home. Friends & family from literally all over the world traveled to Maine to partake in the festivities and celebrate this amazingly sweet couple, and after spending the evening with Emma & Glyn, it’s easy to see why so many people made the long trip. With the help of their family and friends, Emma & Glyn planned the perfect backyard wedding – with the celebration beginning underneath the apple tree, followed by plenty of dancing and fun in Emma’s family’s barn, beautifully restored in honor of this summer’s festivities. Their wedding day was perfect from start to finish, and I’m so thankful that I was able to be a small part of such a meaningful, lovely day.
The following are just a few of my many favorite photos from Emma & Glyn’s wedding – enjoy!
