Maine Wedding Photography | Union Bluff Hotel | Jenna and Josh

All of our weddings are special, but Jenna & Josh's wedding was just a little extra special.  Although I had never met Jenna and Josh (well, I had met Jenna very briefly a long time ago) before they started planning their wedding, my father-in-law has been best friends with Jenna's father for years.  Mike's Dad actually officiated Jenna and Josh's big day.  It's always nice to be able to document such joyous occasions when you know so many of the special guests.  

Thank you Jenna and Josh for having us ... and for being so brave as to walk along the boardwalk on York Beach with the huge rain threat ... the stunning photos (and stories you will have for years to come) are worth it all.

Jenna & Josh had one of the best "first looks" ever!

NH Wedding Photography | Curtis Farm | Nicole & AJ

Cowboy boots.  Any wedding that has cowboy boots is going to make me smile :-)  It's not that I don't love a good high heel, heels are fabulous, but I envy a person who can pull off a good pair of cowboy boots ... and boy can Nicole do just that!  (And so can all her girls!)  

From start to finish Nicole and AJ's big day was nothing short of spectacular.  The gorgeous setting at Curtis Farm is any country girl's dream.  

Much love to you both!

New Hampshire Wedding Photographer | Castleton Banquet Center | Lili & Wen

Lili and Wen contacted us a few months ago to photograph their intimate wedding at Castleton in Windham.  Their wedding was a unique experience for Mike and I, and what an amazing one it was.  Aside from speaking with us and the venue, the rest of the day was spoken in Chinese.  What was so evident to Mike and I (and we commented to each other about it numerous times throughout the day) without knowing what the conversations or speeches were about was how much fun people were having and how much love there was in the room for both Lili and Wen.  We spent most of the day truly watching and it was so amazing to experience a wedding in that way.  

Thank you Lili and Wen for giving us the opportunity to really SEE love in action.  We had an amazing day with you both!

Living out of state, Lili and Wen didn't have an opportunity for an engagement session, so they decided to take some time before the ceremony to have a quick casual session to get comfortable in front of the camera.  It was such a great idea!

 The wind made photos after the ceremony fun.  We took opportunities between wind gusts to get the more formal photos ....
 ... and took the opportunity during wind gusts to get some really fun ones!
 There is something about this image I just love :-)

Lili changed before their lunch reception into a more traditional Chinese dress.  She was absolutely stunning!

This is what we got to see all day.  Pure happiness.
