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.

    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

What a magical day for Kim & Tim’s wedding at the Colony Hotel in Kennebunkport, Maine. The forecast called for showers at the time of the ceremony but Kim & Tim remained hopeful that they would have their ceremony outside. With the power of a couple in love, the skies parted and the sun beamed down for a beautiful ceremony on lawn of the Colony Hotel.  Kim & Tim celebrated with their close friends as the rain held off until the end of the night. You can’t get much luckier than that!

    These photos are just gorgeous.
    The only thing that might have improved them would be if their dog Penny had been there and dressed in pink;-)
    Really, just magical pics!

We couldn’t be more excited for Holly and Beau and their spectacular York, Maine wedding day. It really couldn’t have been anymore beautiful as Holly walked across the lawn with her Dad to see her soon to be husband for the first time. Everyone was smiling ear to ear as they were pronounced husband and wife. We took full advantage of the picturesque location for some fun portraits of the newlyweds around York and then joined guests inside at the Meeting House for dinner and dancing. Cheers to Holly and Beau!

Rebecca and Ben were married in the back yard of Rebecca’s family home in Andover, MA. Upon arrival at the property we quickly realized just why it was so special for Rebecca to celebrate here with their family and friends. The home is filled with memories for her and what a way to build more! We took photos on the front steps of the house with all her brothers and sisters as they did when they were children and her Dad even made his famous margaritas for guests. Laughter, tears and cheers were heard at every turn at their intimate celebration. These two truly celebrated in a way that was authentic to them and I felt like I was with long time friends all day!  Cheers to Rebecca and Ben!!!!
