Peaks Island Maine Wedding: Laura and Mark

Good GRACIOUS was this ever a great day to be a wedding photographer. Dan and I were invited to photograph a truly wonderful day and we have fun the entire time. We rode the ferry across to the island and walked to the church with our camera bags, taking some time to swing in the park and have a glass of water before we began photographing. I mean really… what better way to get ready for a wedding shoot?

Laura and Mark were married on Peaks Island Maine, alongside their closest friends and family. Since we had photographed Laura a few days prior for her Bridal Session, the getting ready portion of the day felt so relaxed, like seeing an old friend! The guys played baseball until they lost the ball in the woods. Then they ate marshmallows. This was how they prepared for the ceremony. Are you picking up the relaxed vibe yet? Mark has two sons, one of which played Ragtime on the piano as the walked back down the aisle as husband and wife.  He missed his cue to get up and play because he was editing a photo of the first kiss on his phone! I can relate to him. BEST! We headed to portraits until the ferry ride back. Then we all went to the reception at The Well at Jordan’s Farm where Laura changed into a cocktail dress and joined the party, feeling a little more like herself. We literally could never have asked for more. It was just right.

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
