If you could imagine the most beautiful family-oriented backyard wedding on a warm, sunny September day – this would be it! Everything fell into place beautifully for this wedding to happen!
Each summer, the Van Ness family travels to Little Cranberry Island, where they spend their days breathing in the fresh ocean air, and taking bike rides down to the beach. But they don’t always end up being there at the same time, so on this unique occasion where the entire family was going to be together, they invited me to come and capture a small piece of their paradise in Maine.
As I drove up into the mountains at Sunday River the weekend of their wedding, I was awed by the beauty all around me. I could see why they had chosen to come all the way back from Pennsylvania to get married in Newry, Maine!
I met up with this adorable couple on a sunny evening in June to explore their wedding venue!
I’ve been looking forward to this wedding ever since I met these two at their Portland engagement session last Spring. I’ve never met two people who are more genuine and sweet than they are! Their wedding day was exactly like I had pictured – a day of rejoicing between two families who have known each other for decades!
It’s the highest honor when another photographer asks you to take their family photographs. I was thrilled when Deanna contacted me a few months ago. She was coming to Maine with her daughter and boyfriend to visit her family here.
Chani and Zack met at a stoplight in New Mexico. They were both towing their dirt bikes, and ended up exchanging phone numbers, thinking it would be fun to go riding together sometime. Several years later, here they are getting married on a gorgeous July day in Maine!
I had so many amazing family sessions this Spring, that I couldn’t possibly sum them up in one post! I love providing these images that families will have hanging in their homes for years!
As much as I love the Winter, I was THRILLED when Spring finally arrived in May! There’s something about finally having green grass, flowers blooming, and warmer weather that invigorates the soul!
As a Maine wedding photographer, I get the privilege of doing engagement sessions all around our beautiful state. Regan and Steele were my winners of my free Maine engagement session giveaway a few months ago! They told me that they really wanted to do their session somewhere near the coast, and I had been dying to try out this new location!
