Portland Maine Wedding: Eliza and Ian

Gentle. Kind. Polite. and very very very in love.

Eliza and Ian got ready in rooms next to each other in the Press Hotel in downtown Portland. Eliza had the penthouse suite of course ūüėČ Once they were both ready, we all went up to the rooftop deck for their adorable first look. You’ll see the joy when you get to those photos. It was precious. Once we were done up there, it was already time for family photos and then the ceremony. It felt like a whirlwind! Before we knew it, Eliza was walking into the ceremony space, with her parents by her side. Just like that, they were married.

During the reception, the toasts were so complimentary. We could tell that these two were really loved by their community of friends and family. They are both such GOOD people with so many accomplishments and achievements it would make your head spin. Pair that with the fact that they complement one another so beautifully and you have yourself a perfect couple!

O yeah… then the party started and it was super fun. We loved photographing everyone throwing down on the dance floor.

Eliza and Ian’s Engagement Session

Hanover New Hampshire Wedding: Nji and Russell

Nji and Russell’s wedding was one that we will lovingly refer to as one of “the big ones” of 2015. They pulled out all the stops, from tuxedos to designer gowns, gorgeous flowers to tasty dinner, beautiful lighting at the reception and a gorgeous ceremony location. The only thing that they couldn’t plan on was the weather, which did rain. You might think that would put a damper on such an event but no. I wish you could have been there to see just how positive and upbeat and “no worries man” they were about the showers. Talk about rolling with the punches! After a run through the rain, they married one another in the presence of friends and family that came from literally all over the world. This was also the wedding with the tallest bridesmaids that there has ever been in the history of weddings! For the first time ever in my photography career, I wasnt the tallest girl in the room, and not by a long shot. Over six feet was the norm with these volleyball ladies and they all wore heels too. It was fabulous!

The dance party was on point, and reiterated the fact that New Yorkers know how to throw a party. Nji’s brother even dropped a new single debut at the reception! The speeches had guests crying from love and laughter. It was clear that this marriage was one that everyone was thrilled about, and we were thrilled to have been there.
