Lindsay + Kevin // A Samoset Resort Wedding // Rockport, Maine

From the moment I spoke to Kevin and Lindsey, I knew working with them would be a wonderful experience. Our first face to face meeting was actually in Boston for their fall engagement session. We visited the charming Acorn Street and their alma mater, Boston College, grabbing a few portraits along the way. They were so sweet together and easy to photograph – we chatted about how they met and how excited they were for their summer wedding in Maine. By the time their wedding rolled around, we had established a wonderful connection and strong level of trust.

We were greeted with quintessential Maine summer weather for their July nuptials. The sprawling property at the Samoset was in immaculate condition, offering endless photo backdrops for us to work with. Lindsay and Kevin had hired an elite group of Maine wedding vendors to work with. Kristina, with Purple Orchid was dialed in with wedding day details and logistics. I got to work side by side with Josh Swan (Media Northeast) who is not only an amazing videographer, but also one of the nicest guys to hang with. For their reception entertainment, they hired the band, Wavelength, who were simply phenomenal. When you have this kind of talent at one of Maine’s premier wedding venues, you are guaranteed to have a good time. The photos below help take me back to that truly memorable day in July. I hope Lindsay and Kevin can do the same 50 years down the road.

Diana + Joe // A Portland Club Wedding

I have known Diana for many years now, given that her sister is my wife’s best friend. She is incredibly funny, thoughtful, and not shy at all. Her impersonations have incited deep belly laughter on many occasions. When I met Joe, I knew that were destined for marriage as they are two peas in a pod – each with their unique sense of humor and selfless kindness.

Diana and Joe were married at the Church of Immaculate Conception followed by a reception at The Portland Club. The couple wanted photos on the Eastern Promenade which turned out to be quite the experience, with the interesting cast of characters we ran into along the way. Diana and Joe took everything in stride as they drew a crowd wherever we went. Back to the reception, the couple had invited someone very special to sing their first dance song, leaving many of their friends in awe. See, Diana and Joe met on a cruise back in college where this talented singer was performing every night. So, not only was it meaningful to Diana and Joe, but to the entire group of friends as well. The night was highlighted by a hysterical speech by Diana’s sister Amanda (complete with props from their childhood) and a Bruce Springsteen singalong/dance off between Joe and his father.

Diana and Joe – congratulations and best wishes to one of the sweetest couples I know!

Suzanne + Dan // Sebasco Harbor Resort Wedding

A sunny midsummer day, one of Maine’s premier coastal wedding venues, and a couple that was eager to celebrate their happiest of days – Suzanne and Dan’s wedding was perfect in every way. The medical residents chose to marry at Sebasco Harbor Resort in Phippsburg. Having lived in Brunswick, my wife and I had driven by this venue many times on our way to Maine’s best kept secret, Popham Beach. This was my first time shooting here, and I was more than impressed with the property itself and friendly staff. Not only do they have a beautiful golf course, but the rocky coastline is an ideal backdrop for ceremonies and couples portraits. The nautical themed wedding was highlighted by a wonderful ceremony, a few kind hearted speeches from the wedding party, and a rockin’ party. From beginning to end, the day was all smiles for these two. Congratulations Suzanne and Dan – warmest wishes on your journey together!
