Erin & Brendan- Morgan Hill Event Center, Maine

Erin first reached out to me around February of this year and I remember being ecstatic about shooting in Maine. I've grown up visiting Maine my whole life and was so thrilled it worked out for Will and I to make the trip. I'd only met Erin once before her wedding in person (and Brendan not at all) which isn't very typical for going into a wedding. But I just knew this couple was perfect for my style- laid back and up for anything. The day was also great weather- it was cloudy all morning and there was NO sun in the forecast. But before the ceremony began, the clouds parted and there was warm sunlight through it all. 

I truly have never welled up so much while shooting like I did at this ceremony. You will see why as you scroll through!! Will had to ask me if I was alright when he saw me step out from behind my camera....ha. It being Father's Day was a very special emphasis and added to the emotions of the wedding that much more.  There was an exceptional energy from the families of both sides, too. Both were so fun and kind to be around, let alone work with! Family formals were seriously a breeze! 

Erin and Brendan, you two are the sweetest and kindest souls. It's always a privilege to capture anyone's wedding, and you two were no exception. Thank you for trusting me with your photos on your day! 

 Erin gifted Brendan with a book full of their earliest memories together and a letter for him to read before the ceremony.

 Since Will typically takes care of all the groomsmen getting ready photos and group shots with the groom, when I sort through them after the wedding I'm usually graced with some surprises...this one didn't disappoint, so I had to share it!!!

 Erin's father, before giving her away, gave a surprise speech/story directed at Brendan. I was not prepared for it... there were tears the whole way through.

 More tears for the father/daughter relationship on Father's Day!!

 It was fun experimenting with this fun style of shooting during dancing photos. I only did a few but I like the movement in the blurred lighting.
