Us at Work in 2014

This past year (2014) was our most booked year yet! We photographed more weddings in a season than any season prior and we traveled a TON! We actually dont take that many photographs of each other or ourselves during the year with our nice cameras. Our whole life is documented via iPhones and I want to be a bit better with that this year. I’m hearing a collective, “me too!” over the internet from my fellow photographers. AmIRight?? In spite of that sad fact, we do have some fun shots of ourselves working at our weddings and sessions. At most weddings, we snap a few shots of each other in action since we love each other. I see Dan concentrating so hard during sessions and I just want to keep that adorableness forever so I take pictures of it! I take photos of myself in mirrors because I want to remember that moment and that we were there, chosen to photograph this event for two people who are madly in love. My favorite this year was the photograph I took of myself with Diamond Head in the background. I was setting up for a shot I took of the wedding dress (imagine the dress in the photo instead of me and thats the shot). I wanted to remember that we were there. We were invited. We were chosen to be a part of that day, in that place, with our cameras. I was so happy. Thats what that photo is for.

Definitely a favorite post to gather images for! Here is a look behind the scenes of us at work in 2014:

And we will finish off with one of my most favorite moments of the whole year: Photographing Karen and Roshan’s wedding on Cape Cod. This was taken during Roshan’s baraat. It was SO FUN and I was kind of overwhelmed realizing that I was there a part of this SUPER FUN event, invited to photograph this happy happy moment. Our past clients, Mara and Will were there, and I was just crazy happy. I needed to keep that moment for myself too so we took this selfie. I love that Will is in the background, smiling away. It really was a magical moment, one of those life moments you keep forever. Portland Maine Wedding Photographer

So yeah…. it’s a really special job we have.

We make photographs that tell the truth by becoming close to you and your story.
