Portland Engagement Session: Jen + Alex

Couples

Portland Maine Wedding PhotographerJEN + ALEX

Portland Engagement Session // Jen + Alex are one of those couples. You know what I mean, impossibly sweet and impossibly amazing together. Through even just phone chats and video chats with the two of them, I could already tell what fun they’d be to be around (they mentioned freaking zip-lining in their wedding clothes the day after their bash, uh, hello!). Meeting them in downtown Portland felt like meeting two old old friends I hadn’t seen in a while, and to say I had a blast with them is an absolute understatement. As teachers and book nerds themselves,  Jen + Alex wanted part of their engagement session to be in a bookstore or a library, and we settled on Sherman’s, which ended up being far more romantic than I could have ever expected!

We then piled in their car after exploring downtown a bit, and headed for the Falmouth Audubon, easily one of the prettiest places in Southern Maine during the summer. The day we had wasn’t so great, but it was warm and sunny all the same just because of Jen + Alex’s love and sweet personalities. Waiting for an entire year to photograph their wedding (countdown now is set to 7 months) is going to feel like an eternity, but these two are worth the wait.

CAIT + MATT Fore River Sanctuary Portland Maine Couples Session // This is such a dear session since without this girl I wouldn't even have a business. Cait, the crazy talented girlboss behind Cait Bourgault Photography took me under her wing a few years ago and brought me along to my first weddings as her second photographer. With her support and guidance, I've grown exponentially, and it's with her constant encouragement that my work continues to evolve and become what it has been today. When she and her beau Matt finally needed some photos together, being asked to be the one to take them was such an honor. They fell into this session s ...

Acadia Anniversary Session: Sarah + Oscar
SARAH + OSCAR Acadia Anniversary Couples Session // When my friend Sarah (of the amazing I am Sarah V Photography) let me know that she and her husband Oscar would be visiting Acadia for their anniversary, immediately gears began turning in my head of how we could work out some kind of session! We'd talked in the past about it, and well why not?! This seemed like the perfect time! So we decided -- let's go to the top of Cadillac Mountain and catch an amazing sunset and have a beautiful glowing session. Even the most well laid plans never work out how you intend, and I pulled up to park in the middle of the clouds, on a very wet day. Once Sar ...
