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.

  • 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

There is nothing like a backyard wedding on the coast of Maine! Samantha & Tony were married in Tony’s parents’ backyard which is located in very picturesque Spruce Head. The reception included a traditional lobster bake and not to be missed award winning blueberry pie by Cathy Feener. While enjoying the view, guests played lawn games and enjoyed craft beer out of Tony’s homemade beer bar. Samantha and Tony surely know how to treat their guests to the best of what the State has to offer!

Ceremony/ Reception: Private Residence Spruce Head, Maine

Caterer & Pies: Cathy Feener – Bells and Whistles

Rentals: Wallace Tent and Party Rental

Flowers: Glandarragh Farm

DJ: Marcel LeClaire

When you meet Alexa and Sean you just can’t help but smile. They are just all about laughter, fun and family and their wedding day was filled with it! We took advantage of the stunning apple orchard at Clarks Cove Farm for their first look. The tears of joy and excitement quickly made way for laugher and hugs. Which was certainly the trend for the day! I don’t think there was a dry eye or anything other than a smile seen as Alexa’s daughter and Sean’s son walked down the aisle tossing flowers and joining their parents on the garden alter for their vows.

This energy carried throughout the day as family and friends toasted the newly married couple and danced under tent lights (after pie and ice-cream of course!). We toast to you too Alexa and Sean and wish you all the best!

Once a month we get to diverge from the wedding and portrait world to photograph the fabulous Flangan’s Table dinners. These dinners are held at the Barn at Flanagan Farm in Buxton, Maine. Set amongst a rural backdrop in a refined 19th century barn, guests come to experience an evening of delicious cuisine prepared by local chefs! This past June, the chefs from Hugo’s restaurant in Portland, Maine put on an outstanding dinner. Going with the setting, Chefs Andrew Taylor and Michael Wiley prepared dishes that complimented the farm setting and the surrounding seacoast.  Guests could wander the grounds, check out the pig roast, enjoy a drink by the fire and experience delicious five course dinners. Being able to capture the essence of these dinners gives us an opportunity to be creative with our photography in new ways and we always look forward to the next.
