Sam & Eben, The Stone House, Bar Harbor, ME

We instantly have a connection with any couple that is passionate about Mount Desert Island (MDI), Acadia National Park, and wanting a Bar Harbor wedding. It's insanely unlikely that you can visit this magical island without it changing your life. Sam grew up spending time in Pretty Marsh (on the Quiet Side of the island) with her family, soaking in the salt air, abundant wild blueberries and lingering golden sunsets. Her year round home was in Rockville, Maryland, also home of Eben. They originally met in middle...

Langdon & Jon, Kualoa Ranch, Kaneohe Hawaii

Langdon and Jon may not show up to things on time, but when they do you forget all about having been waiting. These are two of the most compassionate people, with fully contagious smiles and great passion for life. The Kualoa Ranch Wedding Kaneohe Hawaii was perfect for a long awaited union. I shot this wedding without Keith, and was particularly honored as Langdon and John chose all their vendors with personality in mind. John was in the Philippines with the military when he met Langdon...

Kat + Joe Lanikai Beach Engagement, Oahu Hawaii

The weather was almost as awesome as our couple for this Lanikai Beach Engagement session. Kat and Joe came to Oahu from South Carolina by way of the Navy. Ever seen Hunt for Red October? You're gonna LOVE this story then! Joe is a submariner working on a Virginia class submarine stationed out of Pearl Harbor. Joe can disappear underwater for months at a time, and honestly it only seems to make his and Kat's relationship stronger as their respect and appreciation for one another is...

Hannah + Travis’ Oahu Engagement Shoot, Makua Beach Hawaii

Gorgeous, wether, waves and couple made our wedding photographer dreams come true for this Hawaii engagement photo session at Makua Beach. So much about this couple is awesomely unique. First, they met while in the Air Force, both stationed in Hawaii. Travis was assigned to show newbie Hannah the ropes. He should probably get a medal for going above and beyond duty! Half way through our initial Skype meeting Travis and I did a couple double takes. "Wait, did you used to work for AAA?" "Oh my gosh, you...

Kristin & Mike, Waimanalo Beach – Waimanalo, HI

The Hawaiian beach wedding dreams are made of! Kristin and Mike might just be the poster couple of "it was meant to be." You know, the Harry Met Sally of the non-Hollywood world. Where paths cross so many times you begin to wonder why it took so long to actually happen and rather than hearing "Congratulations!" after announcing an engagement the catching phrase is "it's about time!" Born in different states, their families moved to Oregon living 30 miles apart. Mike's dad worked at a store...

Rachael & Susan, Acadia National Park, Maine

Planning an Acadia National Park wedding? Or just need travel advice? Ask Rachael and Susan who are passionate visitors of National Parks. They've knocked a remarkable number off in their five years together, from East to West and into Canada. Rachael was working as an ER nurse when Susan entered the hospital as a paramedic. Their love of the outdoors saw them through a few years in Utah, which is were we came to know them. Originally from Pennsylvania, Susan now works for Boeing in Seattle. Which...

Ella & Matt, Brant Point Lighthouse, Nantucket MA

The most challenging posts to compose are those we are the closest to. And this couple has definitely become one which will remain close for years to come. It all started well before their Nantucket lighthouse wedding weekend even began. Ella came to us after having scrapped her plans of a traditional wedding, feeling overwhelmed compounded by the loss of hers and Matt's voice in their planned celebration. Instead of inviting friends and family to their hometown of Lexington, Kentucky they skipped town to a place they'd...

Ben & Loie, Cliff Island, Casco Bay, ME

This Cliff Island wedding has all the makings of a modern day fairytale. Cliff Island is one of thousands of islands off Maine's coast, so it's no wonder we almost boarded the wrong water taxi! Loie had arranged for our ride to the island on a water taxi from the main land. We felt a bit like tourists enjoying the ride out of Portland and the views of Casco Bay as we enjoyed the life of Maine wedding photographers. We arrived after a wonderful private boat ride to...
