Natalie and Thad’s Peaks Island Maine Wedding

The weather is always a very important consideration for any outdoor wedding, and Thad and Natalie’s wedding was no exception. They lucked out ten-fold with the weather on their wedding day. Dan and I could barely get over how absolutely beautiful it was. The overcast skies made all the colors POP and set a mood that made us feel like Mainers, even with our Carolina blood. The heat stayed away and created a very comfortable setting for their intimate, tender and personal ceremony. We called the only cab on the island and rode out for some couple portraits on the back side of the island. It practically took our breath away. Adding this Navy Helicopter Pilot and his Navy Nurse wife into the scene was almost too much to bear. It was hard to hold the camera steady! As the day progressed we came to learn how close everyone there was to the bride and groom. It felt like an intimate gathering of people who love each other, which is exactly how a wedding should be. Thad was so tender with Natalie, and she was one of the most laid back brides I can remember ever having. Her Maid of Honor made the bouquets and they spent most of the morning decorating the place themselves. It was a sweet wedding to be able to be a part of. Most importantly of all, Natalie and Thad are now married and ready to set sail on the most exciting voyage in life thus far… married life.

P.S.- Yes, there was Lobster!

Hey there!

This is a photo of me in a burger bar in Stockholm Sweden. I am about to drink the best beer I have ever had. It's a pretty important photo of me. I just remember feeling filled with joy and so so glad to be alive. That's a good place to start on getting to know me.


I like to travel.

I like beer.

I like the person who was across the table from me. Any guesses who?

where we hang
