October wedding at On The Marsh






Crystal and Sergio had a delightful ceremony and reception at On The Marsh in Kennebunk, Maine. I love an outdoor service and this was a spectacular day for one. The fall colors were peak and now they have all fallen off the trees so it is nice to have these images to look back on. Calluna Fine Flowers of Ogunquit provided the beautiful bouquets. I loved the groom's father and his bubbles! The little ring bearer was just too cute! Here are a few images from their day.

Fall weddings warm my heart





This was a fantastic celebration that took place on a beautiful Fall Saturday! Jen and Ron exchanged vows at St. Mary's Catholic church in Wells, Maine and traveled via vintage car to the York Harbor Reading Room for a fun evening with family and friends. I was really taken with Jen's dress-a very nice choice for her! We enloyed photographing this event so much and had photographed her brother Ryan's wedding the previous Fall in Kennebunkport. Here are a few of my favorites.

Praise


We received this nice note from one of our unexpected weddings in August. It took place on the beach on a Monday afternoon and it was spectacular! The couple's four daughters made the event special. Here is her note:
"I don't know how to begin to thank you for all your hard work at our wedding. We can't stop looking at the gorgeous photos. They are absolutely stunning! David and I are thrilled to have such beautiful memories captured so exquisitely by the two of you. It was such a joy to work with you both. Your warmth and enthusiasm was infectious. (I wish we lived in the same town so we could hang out). The girls thought you were tons of fun and the rest of the family are just as awestruck by the photos as we are. Most of all, i want to thank you for the SLIDESHOW. I still get teary eyes thinking about it. What a beautiful way for us to wrap wrap up our special day." Jennifer and David Elder

More from the shoot



Bridal fashion shoot at The Retreat at French's Point






We recently orchestrated a day long bridal fashion shoot in Mid Coast Maine at The Retreat at French's Point. We had beautiful gowns from Madeline's Daughter in Portsmouth, New Hampshire and Amy Curtis Couture in Portland, Maine. Coastal Jewelers in Kennebunkport lent me the STORE! They were so generous in allowing me to take anything I thought would compliment the gowns and models. They have some gorgeous pieces and are a great shop to peek into in the Port. Our models were the talented Lindsey Shields, Jen Paul and Rob Brooks. These three gave 110% ALL day! We started at 7 am and finished around 9 that evening. They were great! We had the uber cool team from All Seasons Day Spa in Kennebunk. Crystal and Tasha on hair and Jesse on make-up. Together they created several different looks throughout the day and were upbeat and fun to work with. Any Bride would be smart to hire the team at All Seasons Day Spa, they do about 70 wedding parties a season so call early at 207-967-1300. The owners of the Rhumb Line Restaurant provided food for the entire team that day and we were so appreciative, one of the shots we took of their great looking appetizer will be featured in La Bella Bride magazine! The flowers were done by Flora Fauna in North Yarmouth and were spectacular! Judy and her assistant were the first to start the day and one of the last to leave. The table arrangments, bouquets and boutineers were just gorgeous and we hope to work with them on a real wedding next season. The Retreat is in Stockton Springs, Maine and is the prettiest place I've ever seen. Jesse Brooks along with her friends and staff have the vision to make every event unforgettable! This was the first time we have directed this type of photo shoot and we plan to do another one in Kennebunkport in the Spring...it was so much fun and many of the images are being considered for various magazines. We will keep you posted.

Last day of September






We met the Santini family on the last day of September at sunset at Drakes Island Beach. It started out cloudy, but the sun peeked through at the last moment and we captured some great images.

A day on the boat with #41 President Bush





Chris spent the day on the boat with our 41st President. It was a lot of fun for Chris because he likes to go fast and Fidelity III is a FAST boat. Here are a few images.
