Allen & Leah | Samoset Resort Wedding | Rockport, Maine Wedding Photographer

My 2019 wedding season kicked off with Allen and Leah right here locally at The Samoset, located on the Rockland waterfront! These two were a blast, and I loved that they were mostly looking forward to enjoying great company, food, drinks, and music together on their wedding day. When Leah mentioned all of this during our initial conversations I knew it was going to be a fun wedding day, which it was! From the moment I arrived, everyone was joking and having a great time. It also always interests me to hear how couples meet as well, and theirs is a good one. Like my wife, Leah is a dental hygienist and her boss (Allen’s uncle), was the one who suggested the two meet. It’s not always the best idea to date your employers family member, but thankfully it turned out to be a perfect match! Even with the less than perfect weather, these two had a perfect day, and I was thankful they chose me to capture it for them. Enjoy the memories captured below!

-After Ceremony Formals-

In typical coastal Maine fashion, the weather quickly began to change during there ceremony! As the fog rolled in, you couldn’t ask for more comfortable temperatures in the beginning of June. Blue skies are great, but fog can add a nice soft touch as well.
