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!
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’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!
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!
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!
With Spring FINALLY arriving here in Maine, I was itching to get my camera out and take some wedding photos! I still have another month or so until my first booked wedding this year, so I enlisted my sister and her husband to get dressed up for me!
Every now and then, it’s important to do something for YOU. For me, that sometimes means photographing a styled wedding that can inspire brides for their own big day, as well as highlight potential vendors for them to hire for their wedding.
Chani and her fiance, Zack, live in Arizona, but they are getting married in Maine this summer! Zack’s family lives here, and who wouldn’t want to get married in Maine?!
I LOVE photographing weddings! It’s my dream job, and many days I have to pinch myself because I still can’t believe that I get to spend my days creating such beautiful works of art.
As a photographer, I’m always striving to improve my skills, and one way I do that is to attend workshops hosted by other photographers.
