Kira & David got married in an intimate wedding just north of Portland, Maine. The day couldn’t have been more perfect. They rented an Airbnb where they could stay and host their family and friends for their wedding. It was right on the water and they got married just as the sun was setting. They finished the night by bringing their guests to a shindig in a barn that was happening down the road. A perfect ending to a perfect day! Congrats Kira & David!
Lauren and Julien reached out to me to photograph their intimate Falmouth wedding. They were married outside among the cottages that are right on the water. Their ceremony was filled with laughter and happy tears. The day was overcast, but it was like the sun was shining on full blast for these too. Here are a few photos of their special day.
My husband handed me his old Canon 20D and asked if I remembered how to use it. He was a photojournalist and had taught me the basics when we started dating, but that had been years ago. I answered with “sure...shutter, ISO and aperture.” The first few months I fumbled with the camera, getting frustrated easily with not understanding how those three components worked together. I was determined this was not the medium for me, but I kept coming back to it. I would go out and take photos of anything and everything that moved me. After a few years, I was confident in my photography skills and I started seeking out work, first for newspapers and then branching out into weddings and engagements. Now I’m a full-time photographer capturing weddings, engagements, events, and much more. I love being able to capture any type of human interactions, big or small, in a photo that my clients will love and cherish forever.
These photos are from a magical mountain engagement shoot with Ana and Victor. They were newly engaged and at first, they wanted to take their photos at iconic spots in San Francisco. While I love San Francisco's beautiful bridges and winding hills I wanted to branch out from the norm.
I sent over a spot I had found while walking around Mount Tam via Google Earth (if you haven’t used it before it’s great for location scouting!). To get to the destination you need to drive up some small winding roads, but once you reach the top...wow, you emerge above the clouds to a breathtaking view of the California coastline. I brought a champagne picnic for Ana and Victor to enjoy while the sunset.
They drank bubbles as they told me their story and their plans for the future, while their love and excitement for each other beamed from their faces.
As the sun set behind them, we were all sad to see the session end. it had been a magical day for an engagement shoot.
