Western Maine Photographer

I recently had the opportunity to catch-up with friend and fellow photographer Erica, owner of Closer North Photography. I’m primarily a western Maine photographer. As you might of guessed she’s a little further north, closer to Bangor. I had the privilege of living in the surrounding areas of Bangor for 6 years prior to moving to the lakes region of Maine. I’m currently contracting all of my weddings through CNP.

I had an amazing time scouting locations and showing Erica around the local area.  We started with a stroll on some local walking trails and lattes at Beth’s. We then ended the day driving a few roads less traveled, chasing the sunset and at the Campfire Grill in Bridgton with a couple of delicious Bloody Mary’s!

In between we walked around an abandoned greenhouse (with permission). There had been several of these structures in the spring, but the local boat storage facility bought it and started demolishing them. I was sad because the photographer in me loved them. I had visions of a styled wedding shoot on location. However, I’m glad the local economy may get a boost from their soon-to-be boat showroom on the same property.

It was great to have another photographer to explore with for the day! Are you looking for a western Maine photographer?

I’m available for senior photos, family photos and almost everything else photos.

 

Southern Maine Wedding Photographer

I’m excited to refocus my energies as a southern Maine wedding photographer this coming year! The Lakes Region and the Western Maine mountains are freakin’ gorgeous. Portland and the ocean are less than an hour away, too.

This past September Cassie and Chris were wed at Fort Knox in Prospect, Maine. I used to live right down the road from this awesome historical park which happens to host a Fright at The Fort every October.

Cassie & Chris allotted A LOT of time for their guests to explore Fort Knox after the ceremony, and for us to take pictures, too. As a photographer this made my heart swell, not that unlike The Grinch. Haha. But in all seriousness pictures take time. I love it when we have plenty of time!

The day was unusually warm for a September in Maine. Therefore the cool dark recesses were a welcome reprieve. Cassie’s grandmother actually owned one of the large white homes across the river in Bucksport. It could be seen from the fort, and at her request we worked it in a couple of the photos.

I always ask my couples, “if you could have one perfect picture from their wedding day what would it be?” For Cassie it was a picture of her and Chris which also captured the spirit of the Fort. I think we nailed it!

I stopped by the Umbrella Factory today and got some of my local favorites for out-of-state family members. They included products from Stonewall Kitchen, Mountain Meadow Farm and Galaxie Salsa! I don’t wanna ruin the surprise for any family that might be reading, but I haven’t found anything these brands make that isn’t delicious. They also had a few cases of micro brews on clearance this morning! 😉  😉

Western Maine Photographer

Chris and Cassie met years ago while playing D&D. So it was natural to carry that theme over into their wedding. They held a renaissance inspired ceremony at Fort Knox in Prospect, Maine. I love this theme and the fort. We actually bought our first home a mile down the road from this historical park. Now I’m a proud western Maine photographer.

The ceremony also began with the bride’s cousin and officiant stating, “Yes, this is a kissing story.” An ode to one of my favorite movies and apparently theirs, as well, The Princess Bride! Wedding favors also included polyhedral dice monogrammed with their initials.

The bride’s dress was handmade, and her bouquet was hand picked from in season, local gardens. In attendance were also several of her alma matter from Smith College.

Go Smithies! I <3 strong, intelligent women!

Lakes Region Maine Wedding Photographer

I got to go back to my old stomping grounds in Tampa, Florida all the way from the Maine! It was a tense couple of months leading up to this wedding. The brides’ original venue and caterer filed for bankruptcy just weeks before the wedding. This left the couple scrambling to find another venue with their date open, and having to come up with the mullah all over again. Fortunately the folks at The Epicenter were available and very accommodating!

The week before the wedding Hurricane Irma was headed for directly for the Tampa area, too! Everyone held their breath. Fortunately, it wasn’t a direct hit and the damage was far less than anticipated for the affected areas. Although power was still being restored to the surrounding areas at the time of the wedding, the venue was up and running!

These girls overcame a lot there right before their big day. It was obviously meant to be!

Would you like to have a conversation about your wedding photography needs? Email me or call me.

I’m new to the area, all the way from Hancock county. Haha. I can’t wait to start next season as a Lakes Region Maine wedding photographer! I also travel all over New England, Tampa, FL and Las Vegas, NV.
