Mount Desert Island Engagement Photography

Southwest Harbor Engagement Photo Shoot

Mount Desert Island Engagement Photography

By now you’ve figured out how much we love Mount Desert Island engagement photography! While we didn’t snag any stunning sunsets on this one, it was still a blast and allowed us to explore a different part of the island (the one without tourists!) While not in Acadia National Park, the Claremont Hotel has been a part of our lives for decades and stands as one of the oldest hotels on the island. The views aren’t bad, either, looking into Somes Sound. Located in Southwest Harbor, the Claremont has it’s own stop on the Island Explorer, and a fantastic restaurant Xanthus with stunning ocean views. We think it’s one of the best kept secrets. It’s also home of a prestigious annual croquet tournament! And with such richness, we could help but show it off to friends for a post hike photo session.

We met Chasity & Wes at a bar. Okay, it was the marble bar of a Mediterranean Bistro. Definitely more legit, right? They had just landed in town and were enjoying an amazing meal after a 12 hour drive. We quickly became friends, even having them live with us briefly! As a traveling nurse, Chasity is eager for adventure and Wes is lucky enough to tag along. On any given day they are putting hours of miles in their car to discover new stunning landscapes. Naturally, it didn’t take much to talk them into a weekend in Acadia with us!

Chasity & Wes met while living in North Carolina. After some very persuasive dedication Wes finally got Chasity to agree to date him. Fortunately their proposal was far easier for him, and involved his learning a dance routine to surprise Chasity during one of her ballroom performances. Check it out here. We did a little reenactment on the dock during the engagement shoot.

The first nursing assignment on Chasity’s travel tour brought her to Manchester, NH which is where we met. While she has since been reassigned, we’ve managed to visit in North Carolina, and can’t to photograph their West Virginia farm wedding weekend! Thanks guys for enlivening our lives with your love of adventure!
