2019 Maine Weddings: My Availability

I can't believe that in just a couple days it will be 2019 and I will be preparing for all my 2019 Maine Weddings. I have had so many emails from couples in the last few months and unfortunately I have had to turn down every one of them due to already being booked those dates. So, I figured now would be a good time to post my availability as it stands today. Of course this will change as time passes by, but I figured it wouldn't hurt anything for today ;) Currently, these are the dates I am NOT available for in 2019: 4/27/19 5/11/19 6/22/19 6/29/19 8/18/19 9/7/19 9/14/19 9/21/19 10/13/19 Some of these dates require travel and so I may be unavailable the entire weekend of that date and som

I can tell you one thing for sure, it takes more than simply your photographer's direction. I'm excited to share my experience with you about what works ( and doesn't ) and how you can get those magical, Pinterest pin worthy photos yourself. 1.

That's a Wrap! My 2018 Wedding Season

Here I sit, just having finished my last wedding blog of the year, reflecting on what an amazing and crazy year it has been. One year ago we announced that we were moving to Maine and everything changed. I spent a lot of the year on the road commuting between Northern Maine and Southeastern Pennsylvania. With more than 20 weddings and more than a dozen engagement sessions between May and November I certainly had my work cut out for me. As I look back today I feel nothing but pride and gratitude. I am so, beyond grateful for every single one of my amazing clients. I say all the time that I am the luckiest wedding photographer in the world because it's very true. I've experienced more th
