Portland Maine Elopement: Michelle and Damien

Three words that I would use to describe Damien and Michelle’s tiny Portland Maine City Hall Wedding are sweet, simple, and elegant. It was such a gorgeous day here in Portland, with just a kiss of brisk fall air and pretty yellow leaves shining in the trees. Damien and Michelle had a little first look just outside the Danforth Inn and then they called an uber to take us to City Hall. Nice and easy.

They said their vows and then they were married. Just like that.

We all hopped into our car and the four of us did portraits around town. They had a date on the Narrow Gauge railroad so that was an important spot to hit. Afterward, we also went over to Mackworth island for some nature photos. It was an all-round great wedding in our opinion.

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?
