We became wedding photographers because we loved each other. Four months after our wedding day, we set off on a kayak adventure, paddling from Maine to Key West. This took us over a year and a half, 2500 miles, through some of the worst and best days of our lives so far and cemented our love for one another. On that trip, we realized that we wanted to be together all the time, not trading our numbered days for a number on a paycheck. This business is how we made that happen in our love story.
We share our lovely little apartment with our sweet little dog, Hattie. Most of our time is spent snuggling her, hustlin' in our home office, watching YouTube, embroidering, surfing, and dreaming about travels and fresh ideas.
We are located in Portland Maine. We travel up to 2 hours with no travel fee.
We have been in business since 2010. I have photographed over 200 weddings since then.
Gutsy - Real - Honest - Intuitive - Quirky
Our main inspirations are Light, Emotion and Landscape. We dig weird light, bold light, dark shadows, buttery golden light and high contrast. Drawn to the emotions of the day we focus on the story being told, both the public displays as well as the private moments. We believe in the importance of location and that it is integral to the wedding and we incorporate that into the story as much as we can. While we do step in to help direct you during your portraits, we use the photo-journalistic technique during the rest of the day as it unfolds.
Our number one goal on a wedding day is to show truth. We want the vulnerable honest imperfect and gritty real-life stuff. Ugly crying from how stinking happy you are to be married. The rest is just gravy.
All weddings include both of us as your wedding photographers and the high-res files.
We use skype.
We've won some awards, been featured on some blogs, and in some magazines but you don't really care about that do ya? Ask us and we can brag to you if you want. Either way, our moms think we are great.
