kelly + matt engaged! │ maine engagement portrait photographer

Saturday, October 12th, 2013

Blogging world: meet Kelly and Matt! I have known Kelly really well since middle school and I was SO excited when she asked me to photograph her and Matt’s wedding! About 99% of their engagement session was spent laughing… so. much. fun. We went to Kelly’s family camp on the beautiful and serene Molasses Pond. I’ve been hearing about this place for about as long as I’ve known Kelly, so I was ecstatic to finally see it! Not to mention have the opportunity to create pictures for them at one of their favorite places. :) Let’s just say it didn’t disappoint. Cannot wait for your wedding today, friends!!


See you two in a few hours! :)

These two are so happy. And they are so in love. It just radiates when they are around each other. I did Monica and Jason’s engagement photos earlier this year, and we had a blast doing those so I knew their wedding day was going to be 10x as fun! I was right. :) We lucked out with a gorgeous summer day and everything flowed flawlessly. What more can you ask for?! My amazing second shooter Kristin from Sweet Life Memories Photography and I started off the day off at the Hampton Inn in Bangor with Monica and her girls, then headed over to Peakes Hill Lodge for the remainder of the day. I loved watching these two become Mr. and Mrs. Karam while surrounded by their loving family and friends! Here’s a sneak peek at their wedding story!

How beautiful is she?! That smile didn’t leave her face from this point on. :)

Monica and Jason decided to do a “first look” prior to their ceremony, and it was priceless to see how ecstatic these two were to see each other for the first time that day. I adore first looks! It’s so lovely to see both of them relax and spend a few special moments alone together before the rest of the wedding day activities commenced.

Jason arrived to the ceremony site in style in their VW Westy, so I suggested that we incorporate that into a few photos. The entire wedding party got in on it!

Then it was time to get these two married!

Now, time to celebrate!

Monica + Jason: thank you so incredibly much for letting me document and share your special day with you. I adore you both. xoxo.

leah + eric │ iowa destination wedding photographer

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013

There are only a few things I love more in life than 1. traveling, and 2. taking pictures of people in love. If I get the opportunity to do both at the same time, I literally jump for joy. So when Leah + Eric asked me last year to document their wedding in Iowa before we did their engagement photos, I was ecstatic! This was my third time in Des Moines, and I love it more and more every time I visit. Leah + Eric’s day was beautiful — sunny with a slight breeze and very warm, which I’m pretty sure is just what they requested. :) These two are so laid back and completely adorable together that it was impossible not to have fun hanging out with them the entire day. Here is their story and some of my favorite moments!

I totally loved Leah + Eric’s wedding day gifts for each other. :)

Eric and the guys got ready at a separate location, so when I got to meet up with them at the church and heard they were up for some basketball (yes this amazing church had a basketball court…) I was all for it!

Before Rio — Leah + Eric’s pup/ring bearer — led the way down the aisle, they decided to do a “non first look” and have a little pre-ceremony moment to themselves without seeing each other.

After the ceremony, the entire wedding party crammed into a party bus to Gray’s Lake where we did group photos and bride and groom photos. Everyone in the wedding party got sunglasses as their gift from Leah + Eric — so fun. The reeeal party started on the way to the reception once photos were done!

Thank you so much Leah + Eric for letting me be the one to capture your big day. It was a total blast, and I am so happy for you both that you found each other!
