Joe + Katie | Thompsons Point Wedding | Portland, Maine Photographer

Not everyone plans their coastal Maine wedding in November, but Joey and Katie did! In a year that was full of some crazy weather, it proved to be no different for them. Thankfully, it was reasonably warm and the rains cleared off for a few outdoor photos, but WOW, that wind was crazy! Everything about this day was both beautiful and fun, and it was also a perfect way to end my wedding season. I’m thankful they chose me to capture their big day, and hope that you enjoying reliving the day through the photos and stories that follow. Thanks for coming, and cheers!

When I met Al and asked if he was the father, he said, “No, I’m the F.O.B.” haha!

The ceremony was held at this beautiful church in Falmouth, The Episcopal Church of Saint Mary. Its stone architecture, made for a perfect backdrop!

For the wedding party photos, we jumped outside once the rain started to clear up. It was cold and REALLY WINDY, but that also made for this perfect photo of Joey and Katie walking together surround by blowing leaves!

Before the official cocktail hour and reception, it was time to stop off at their favorite brewery together (Bissell Brothers) for a pint and a few snaps!

The reception was held at Brick South, which is a really cool industrial event space also located on Thompsons Point, just across from the brewery!

A really unique and cool aspect of the reception was the lack of traditional toasts by friends. Instead, stories and toasts were written out and placed around everywhere. Very cool!

A good old fashioned wedding cake to the face!

Among my favorites memories of the day was this next moment. For their wedding cake topper, Katie borrowed her grandparents one that was used on their cake 60 years ago! It was especially sweet to see the grandparents invited to come up and cut the cake as well -60 years after they first did!

With the formalities complete, it was time to get back to the party and Danny of Northeast Event Design got the floor moving!

Towards the end of my time, the kids came out to pass out comfy socks for everyone to dance in haha!

Chris + Lauren | Northport, Maine Photography | Point Lookout Resort Wedding

All of my Point Lookout couples have been graced with the most insanely beautiful days up on the summit, and it was no different for Chris and Lauren! These two originally met at a concert after Chris’s friends bailed on him, but it obviously all worked out for the best! I had the pleasure of meeting Chris and Lauren last year during their engagement session and have been looking forward to capturing their wedding day ever since. Spirits were high among everyone as I arrived, excited for the party ahead! The girls were full of laughter while practicing some dance moves, and the guys were just relaxing and having a drink. This whole day was full of laughter, emotion, and love… everything needed for a perfect day! I enjoyed going back through the photos while putting together this post and hope that you enjoy it all as well!

Lauren was gifted a sweet new set of kicks by her nephew, which were perfect to slip into for the dancing later!

These first looks were one of my favorite parts of the day, from the bridesmaids, to her dad, and finally with Chris. Plenty of excitement and emotion to go around!

Not only did we have amazing weather for the wedding party formals, but we had all the time in the world! Earlier in the day the girls had wanted to do some more serious formal poses so with the extra pre-ceremony time, I set up some lights and we captured some awesome Downton Abbey style portraits!

With the formalities complete, it was time to PARTY - and party they did! Tons of awesome dancing, a little choreographed number by the girls, and finishing up with a “vest party” by the guys. You’ll see… ;)
