Jake + Amelia | South Thomaston Maine Wedding Photographer

I'm used to a lot of traveling for weddings but, lucky for me, Jake and Amelia's wedding was only a few blocks from home! I met them last year for their engagement shoot and have been looking forward to their wedding ever since. The plan was to have a simple and laid back party with friends and family, which is exactly what they did! It was a lively party and a busy scene from the moment I showed up, with Amelia still doing a lot of the hands on decorating. It's also rare to see the bride doing others' makeup haha! This was for sure a fun day and I'm so glad to have been invited to be a part of it. I hope you have as much fun looking through the photos as I did capturing them!

Baby Harper would certainly steal the show at times. She was slightly apprehensive when I first arrived, but warmed up fast. In fact, once it was decided I was ok, her gaze would follow me wherever I went, which made for some adorable shots!

The plan was for Harper to be pulled down the Aisle for the ceremony in a wagon, but she was fussiest leading up to that point! Amelia sprang into "mom mode" before the ceremony to comfort her and calm her down. It wasn't looking hopeful that she would want to participate, but dad insisted that his daughter came down the aisle as planned. Thankfully after a little rest, she did indeed make it down the aisle, which was so cute!
