Married: Mikayla & Brayton

Woooohoooo! Check out this gorgeous couple!  These two had the most relaxed day.  They were both just so ready to be married and it was so nice to be there to witness such a great couple surrounded by their loved ones say their vows!

When we walked in Mikayla was cool as a cucumber, enjoying a beer with her gals and some lunch.  These ladies remembered and laughed about how Mikayla met Brayton and how onces they met the rest was history.

And Brayton said that he knew right when he met Mikayla that she was it; the one. We weren’t surprised. These two build each other up, challenge one another and love so deeply.  That is so evident.  Listening to their fathers talk about each individually and as a couple it was so obvious how this relationship means so much, not only to them, but to their family and friends too.

The day was perfect and filled with laughs and muscle poses from these Crossfit newlyweds… and bridal party….and guests!

Married: Abbie & Zachary

Congratulations to Abbie & Zachary!!!  Their wedding day was by and far one of the most fun and relaxed weddings we have had the honor of photographing.  Everyone was having fun, dancing, drinking, devouring pizza and donuts; it was an absolutely fabulous day! Abbie & Zachary have such an awesome relationship they joke around and enjoy one another so much. Every detail was so perfect.  They tied the knot at Coolidge Family Farm with daisies and chamomile everywhere. Zachary proposed to Abbie with a 3 stone diamond ring with stones from each side of their families. From the start, this marriage was based on love from generations past and will continue with their own family for generations to come.

Wishing you both the best!  Enjoy a sneak peek of your day! And thank you for allowing us to be there to capture it all.

Married: Kayla & Brandon

Congratulations Kayla and Brandon!!! It was an absolute joy being there to witness your beautiful relationship move on to this next step and start a new family with so much trust, love, laughter and happiness!

The love that Brandon has for Kayla is so visible, he makes her smile and laugh at every turn.  Kayla was shinning on the way to go see Brandon for their first look. As Kayla walked down the stairs at Brandon’s family home in her stunning low back, lace for days wedding gown she began to giggle and as Brandon waited excitedly a huge smile crossed his face and he said “that’s her nervous laugh”.  That moment. That is what I love about First Looks and Wedding Days.  That moment when an outsider looking in can just see the love and why these two are marrying.

Thank you both for welcoming us outsiders into your gorgeous, relaxed, beautiful wedding day.  It was perfect! Enjoy this glimpse into your day.

Married! Ashlee & Josh

On June 25, 2016 Ashlee and Josh tied the knot surrounded by close friends and family. The weather was perfect, the couple was stunning and so in love.

Ashlee’s feisty spirit is perfectly matched to Josh’s calm peaceful demeanor.  One of the best parts about our “job” is to see a couple’s love and how two people can be so perfectly matched. When they look at each other you can visible see how much they love one another. And when Ashlee walked down the aisle at The Hitching Post in Dayton to a nervous Josh you could feel the excitement in the air.  Ashlee was an absolute gorgeous Bride with a stunning dress and details to match and Josh was oh so Handsome in his three-piece suit.

The flowers were amazing!  Some of the most beautiful I’ve seen by Dodge the Florist, the band was fantastic, singing and dancing the night away every one had a wonderful time and a few tears of joy were snuck in here and there.  The Matron of Honors speech brought tears to our beautiful brides eyes as she wished them a wonderful marriage and that today {their wedding day} be the day they love each other the least.  What a wonderful idea.

We wish you the same Ashlee and Josh, a life filled with fun, adventure, compromise, understanding, forgiveness, joy and love always growing. Thank you so much for including us in your beautiful day.

Claire, Tim and Baby make Three {Scarborough.Maine.Maternity.Family.Love}

I know that by now this sweet little boy has entered the world and stolen the hearts of Claire and Tim, his beautiful Momma and Daddy. I am so glad they reached out to us to document this special once in a lifetime moment. Whenever we get to photograph those first baby bumps it takes me back to my first baby bump, so many bumps ago. It’s so excited to hear those first heartbeats, feel those first kicks, and really fall into your role as a mother.

Claire was absolutely one of those beautiful glowing mommas that we have ever seen. It’s so special to be behind the camera able to sneak a peek into the beautiful relationship two people have, these two were no exception.

Baby boy if you read this one day know that your mommy and daddy already loved you so much, even before they saw your perfect little face.

I hope that you two are enjoying all of your first with baby. Getting naps and snuggles in when possible and kissing that sweet little newborn head every chance you get. As everyone says, it goes by too fast.
