Erika and Jimmy have known each other for a long time. Long enough to have once “dated” and “broken up” because their parents said they were too young to “date”! But all these years later, here they are…planning their wedding and building a life together! They traveled up from their home on the New Jersey coast to spend a little time on the one here in Maine and we had a ball wandering around the always darling Boothbay Harbor for their engagement session last month! Erika and Jimmy, y’all!

Annie and Benjy are one of those couples who just get one another. They share a love of the Clash as well as indie or punk music from just about any era and hit up Brighton Music Hall or Paradise Rock Club to catch shows on a regular basis. Annie can text Benjy a photo of a cute dog she works with and he eats it up, while Benjy can share his PhD-in-Economics ideas with Annie and she loves to soak it in. They have a language all their own and a relationship built on mutual respect and real admiration. The afternoon I spent shooting their engagement session was a total blast and I just loved hanging out and watching these two in action! Considering that the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens is drop dead gorgeous and one of my favorite places, it was no surprise that this awesome couple pulled together a beautiful, wonderful day! Add to the backdrop Annie’s killer vintage style, a tremendous group of family and friends, and perfect weather and it’s no wonder this was such an incredible day!
