I have the best clients. Like EVER. Clients who are game for anything, totally open and understanding, and, you know, FUN! I feel like I’m always pretty aware of this fact, but sometimes there are clients who really drive home how very lucky I am! Danielle and Raju totally fall into this category!

To begin with, they call the sunshine-filled state of Florida home, but took their one week of spring break (Danielle is a teacher!) and left their beautiful weather behind to come up to Maine in the unpredictable month of March to do their engagement session! And true to the real madness that is March weather here, they were met with freezing rain and no sign of life yet emerging from our frozen ground. On top of their humor and awesomeness with the weather, they were totally flexible with me as I was knocked flat by a nasty flu the day before we were scheduled to shoot (I seriously get sick like that approximately once every 10-15 years…the last time was sometime around 2002!) and they rearranged their schedule to give me a few days to recover before we met up. Did I mention that they are awesome? Just checking.

We met at Fort Williams Park for their session during a break in the freezing rain and despite the raw weather, these two were all laughter and love and utter coolness! High-school sweethearts who have supported each other through years of education and job searching and life’s transitions, they absolutely radiate teamwork. And humor…they laugh SO much, which is just my favorite thing EVER, and we totally ended up having a ball!

Without further ado, some of my favorites from Danielle and Raju’s Portland Head Light engagement session!

Oh how I love winter weddings! Snow on the ground, the cozy flicker of candlelight casting it’s soft glow…I wonder every year why more couples don’t embrace this awesomeness! I harbor a deep love of winter myself, so suppose I’m biased, but I was over the moon when Melissa and Ryan contacted me about shooting their utterly fabulous February wedding at the lovely Willowdale Estate in Topsfield, Massachusetts! You may remember Melissa and Ryan’s sunset engagement session on Crane’s Beach…we had such a ball, so I’ve been looking forward to this wedding for months!

Without further ado, I give you Melissa and Ryan’s cozy, snowy winter wedding!

It was so SO fun to shoot a rare winter wedding this weekend at the ever fabulous Willowdale Estate! You may remember Melissa and Ryan from their engagement session at Crane’s Beach…I’ve been looking forward to their wedding ever since! While the forecast calling for snow flurries throughout the day failed us, winter did, indeed, make herself felt with temperatures hovering just above zero all day. Being the adventurous couple that they are, Ryan and Melissa cheerfully braved the cold for portraits and were absolute champions throughout! The rest of their day was marked by flickering candlelight and the kind of coziness that can only be found in a grand old New England estate.

Here is a teeny peek at the awesomeness…I can’t wait to share more soon!!

I met Alicia a few years ago when she was a bridesmaid in Margaux and Amardeep’s wedding (remember their gorgeous Sangeet?) and was just delighted when she contacted me about doing some photos of her precious family! We had BEYOND a good time at Wolfe’s Neck State Park…between her patient, curious, sweet-natured baby girl and her rambunctious and hilarious little boy, I couldn’t have asked for a more fun family to spend the afternoon with! Seriously, these guys are just plain awesome.

The Thomas family, y’all!

One of the best parts of my job is getting to watch a family take shape over the years! You may remember Danielle and Jason’s gorgeous fall wedding in Bethel a few years ago, or maybe last year’s newborn session after their family grew to include their son. This fall we got together to document another year, this time in their brand new home!
