Patrick + Tracy | Samoset Resort Wedding | Rockport, Maine Photographer

Wow... What a perfect day it ended up being for Patrick and Tracy's wedding!  I had the pleasure of meeting these two and some of their family during their engagement session earlier this spring and have been looking forward to capturing their wedding ever since. Thankfully, with friends and family having traveled such a long distance to be here, they were blessed with a gorgeous Maine fall day! I showed up at the Samoset early in the afternoon to capture some getting ready photos, as well as many pre-ceremony formals.  This helped free up additional time to be spent with their guests later - always a great idea! Once they were ready, we headed out for the first look, followed by some pictures out on the Rockland Breakwater. I still can't get over how awesome these two look with the amazing backdrop nature provided! I'm so thankful Patrick and Tracy chose me to capture their big day and hope you love going through these photos as much as I loved taking them!

We had some pretty hilarious paparazzi during the ceremony, who apparently REALLY wanted to capture a few shots themselves. He was clamoring up, and almost falling back down the hill to get his photo!

I really loved watching this moment below of Tracy's father looking over at his son-in-law and new grandchild. That look just says it all! I remember during their engagement shoot, talking about how her sister was due right around the time of the wedding and how they might not be able to make it. Thankfully this bundle of joy came just early enough for them to be there to support Patrick and Tracy!

Pretty much the best ring bearer outfit ever haha! He did an excellent job playing the part as well.

Dancing was a BIG part of this reception in the ballroom! So many great photos from that evening as people tore up the floor.

I finished my evening there with a couple of shots under the stars as well as a sparkler exit. What a great end to a perfect day!
