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

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!!!!

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
