Hiring us as your wedding photographer is a big decision. We think it’s so important that you feel comfortable with the wedding photographer you choose to capture these intimate life moments! With work, travel, school and just life in general getting in the way of all of our couples meeting up in person I asked my dear friend and talented colleague Meg Simone to put together a film that would share a bit about our style for those interested in learning more about our work! It’s short and sweet and shows off all the amazing parts of New England that we LOVE to photograph.

    Just finally got a chance to peek at this and I LOVE IT!!! There’s nothing better than being a New England gal :-) The bike scenes are my fav! Great job to Meg too! XO

  • Thanks Stacey :) I think the bike shots are my favorite too :) Brea’s personality and laughter is contagious. Hard not to have a good time :)

  • so cute Brea!!! Only part I would cut out…Nikon!…haha. Love it!!

  • Marilyn says:

    Love the video. Having met Brea just twice, it appears that Meg has captured her spirit and passion for New England and photography. York, Maine is fortunate in that she has chosen this town as her home. Keep up the good work, Brea and Heidi. Brea, are you able to solve murder mysteries while on your bike? (Murder, she wrote…may be before your time)….Marilyn

    so perfect!!! makes me want you to photograph my wedding someday!!

This Kennebunkport, Maine wedding took place on the MOST perfect summer day! A lovely breeze was present as the guests took in Maggie and Brendin’s oceanside ceremony and the tent glowed as the giant super moon graced the evening sky. What more can you ask for?!?! Oh how about amazing family, friends and an ice cream truck! Maggie and Brendin had such a laid back day and it made for so many fun filled moments, always great for photos.

These two recently purchased the beloved Bennett’s Store in town and so we stopped in there to see the crew and grab a few photos. If you stop in to grab your beach day sandwich be sure to wish them well in their new married life together!!!

I met Jess and Chapin last summer when we got together for their e-session on Goose Rocks Beach in Kennebunkport, Maine. Jess’s family home is right on the beach and made for the most perfect spot for their session. This summer we gathered at the same house but it was to document Jess, her girls and parents as she was getting ready to celebrate her wedding day!! And what a day it was! Perfectly sunshine filled as guests enjoyed cocktails and sunset on the lawn at the Breakwater Inn. I don’t think these two stopped smiling all day!

Nantucket boasts some pretty spectacular scenery for weddings but nothing compares to Brooke’s family home, the setting for her wedding day. Down a long dirt road lined with tall grasses you slowly enter into a courtyard of crushed shells. When her Mom quietly asked if I would be taking photos in the rose garden I had to contain myself, of course!!!! How could I not! But aside from this gorgeous home making for an amazing day both Brooke, Chris and all their family showed us what a true celebration is meant to be. Heartfelt toasts, thoughtful gifts and quiet moments the couple carved out created a day that I am sure no guest will soon forget. We want to wish Brooke and Christopher and big cheers of congratulations and best of luck on all your exciting new endeavors together.
