Life Lately List: February 4, 2014

After one full month in our new home in our new state, we are super happy to tell you that we are… super happy! January is actually one of my favorite months so now that it was our first month here, it was one of the best January’s ever! It’s remarkable… so remarkable we remark on it, daily.

We are so happy to be here in Maine.

A few things that happened this past month:

  • I finished the Harry Potter Series. I had never read it up to this point and can I say… so precious. Love love loved it, especially you Severus. Always you.
  • This past weekend (Feb 1) we shot our 2nd wedding which we are now considering our ACTUAL last wedding of the season. Ha! We photographed a wedding in November, December, January, and now February. Therefore, since we have the next three months with no wedding to photograph, we can really dig into our business and make it better every day, every year, forever and eva! This is one of the most valuable time for us in our business and I am so excited. It’s funny when we hear the classic line, “What do you do now that you aren’t shooting wedding every weekend?” It always makes me smile because I think to myself, “Everything we wanted to do all year but didn’t have time for…which is a lot.”
  • Dan’s already talking about a new travel destination he wants to visit soon. I can’t hold that guy back. We just got here and… he wants to head out again. I love him.
  • The ocean is our backdoor and I can’t even handle it. Its all I honestly ever wanted.
  • Dan has embarked on a “learning to repair” surfboards journey with our friend Matt. It’s taken all month but soon Dan will have 3 surfboards that have come back from the dead! Go Dan!
  • We have a lot of June wedding dates that are weirdly open and I hope we fill them! What a great month to get married. That being said, Dan has more plans for travel then if we don’t. #winwin
  • Im 30. Its the beginning of a new year. 2014 looks like its shaping up to be the best year yet and that really really feels good.

Bethany, you are so beautiful! Love your haircut, too!

Curious about the destination-of-the-Dan plan now… Hope you spill soon!

That was your first time reading Harry Potter?! Oh my goodness. They are the best books ever.

Logan and Jay’s Intimate Vermont Wedding

A dozen people, a few short hours, and a wedding that we will never ever forget… this was Logan and Jay’s wedding.

It snowed all day, beautiful dreamland snow, the kind of snow that you picture when you think of romantic white fluffy Vermont snow.  We met them in a lodge where there closest family were all together preparing to witness Logan and Jay exchange vows. They had flown in from places as far away as California and Florida. Their first look took place in the falling snow… I don’t know how to properly convey that scene other than to share the images. It was complete and total first look perfection. The had their ceremony in the snow on the back porch of the cabin. It was so casual but yet so serious… one of those ceremonies where you can feel the sacred vows. After the kiss, it was on to a sleigh ride in the snow followed by dinner, cooked by the chef right there in the cabin. What could really be better?

I hope that the images convey just how unforgettable this small wedding really was. Pinch me ok?

Ruby Talbot

These are the most umbelievable beautiful photos I have ever seen of a wedding. What a setting and how wonderful to get married in the snow! You look so happy and the sleigh ride made me want to go where it is snowing and take my own sleigh ride. Logan, you look absolutely beautiful! The photographs are really stunning! The house looks amazing, the table setting outstanding – everything looked just perfect! Lots of happiness to you both.

EPIC!! STUNNING!!

Brittany

I kept thinking, “If I were them, I would put this one up on my wall…No, this one…Maybe this one!” Wow! Absolutely amazing!

So so classic, romantic, and stunning. What a lovely and seemingly calm day for them both.

Favorites of 2013

This year we thought we would do something a little different and share our 2 favorite images from every session of 2013 in a slideshow! If you have a few min today, enjoy our faves from 2013.

What a year right?! We wrote down all the places we visited and it amounted to 14 states and Puerto Rico!

Thank you to all our clients this year. It was unforgettable.

Marcia Wiggins

I love, love, LOVE these shots…first, because your personality is so on the surface that it shows in every shot (I particularly love the photo bomb one where, Bethany, you are in a hat!) but it also shows to what lengths you will go to capture not just the shot, but the essence of the couple in the perfect composition at the precise moment of excellence…you are masters at your craft. You are amazing at what you do! You are so darn cute I can’t look away!

I love this post!! Your clients are so LUCKY to have you guys:)!!
