Real Maine Weddings magazine hosts a fabulous contest each year, giving away a $100,000 wedding and working with many of Maine’s most incredible vendors in the process. I am honored to be one of the photographers participating in this year’s wedding, and I have loved getting to know the contest’s winning couple,  Christina and Luke!

I met up with Christina and Luke a few weeks ago in Christina’s hometown of Rockland, Maine, and we had ourselves a BALL wandering around town for their engagement session! You can read about the session from Christina’s point of view here!

Without further ado…Christina and Luke, engaged!

Christina and Luke, you guys rock! I’m so excited to be a part of this journey with you!!!!

Katie & Ryan recently made the drive up to Maine from their home in New Jersey so that we could play at the fabulous Bradley Inn and the Pemaquid Light for their engagement session! And what a session it was. These guys are simply A.W.E.S.O.M.E. Utterly in love and game for anything, we laughed SO much through the session. Katie shines so brightly and is bursting with energy. Ryan has this calm strength and quiet solidness. Together, they are just right. They fit. And I got to hang out with them all afternoon!

We began at The Bradley Inn, where Katie & Ryan’s wedding will be later this year!

Katie has a tradition that she shares with a young girl who she mentors…they put on Derby hats and have high tea! So Katie has a collection of very fabulous hats! And she knows how to wear them!

We headed to the Pemaquid Light for the finale and were treated to a classic, foggy sunset that was full of mystery and magic. I couldn’t get enough of it!

Katie and Ryan, you guys are awesome! Thank you for a seriously great afternoon!!

Bethany and Jake are real-deal Canadians…into hockey, good beer, and they are fearless when it comes to getting’ stuff done in sub-zero temperatures! We met up in their hometown outside of Toronto to shoot their engagement photos at a Christmas tree farm that is important to Jake. I absolutely love it when couples incorporate places that are special to them and very separate from their wedding when it comes to engagement sessions…it’s such a great way to tell more of your story and reflect some of the other facets of your life! Knowing that their wedding will take place in coastal Maine, it was so cool to capture some of home for these guys! And, not to brag or anything, but it was -22 degrees for most of the shoot (it got even colder at the end!) and these guys rocked it without complaint. Yeah, dog.

Speaking of dogs (how do like that segue!?)…in case I hadn’t already been convinced of their awesome-ness factor, Bethany and Jake are crazy in love with their fur-babies! You know I’m a sucker for dogs and the people who love them, and these guys totally fit that bill!! I can’t wait to see the fluff balls all dressed up for the wedding next year! Love love love.

Now…onto the good stuff! Bethany and Jake, y’all!

Don’t forget…while I am not posting very often over here on Cuppa anymore, there is a lot happening over at Cindy Giovagnoli and on the blog there…stop over for a visit to see some recent work from El Salvador and Belize and look for more adventures from around the world and close to home coming soon!

I recently met up with Sarah and Patrick for their engagement session outside of Boston! We had such a great time wandering around Middlesex Fells Reservation with it’s plethora of trails and gorgeous lake! Sarah and Patrick were totally game and really good sports about me dragging them around the woods! Totally worth the hike in my opinion…but check out their awesome session for yourself and let me know if you agree!

I met up with Sarah and Joel recently and we had a ball wandering about Boston with their dog, Billie! A perfect fall day, I had such a great time getting to know these two huge-hearted people and to witness their clear devotion firsthand! Without further ado…Sarah & Joel!!
