Chris and James - Downtown Portland Maine engagement portraits in the chilly drizzle of May!

This engagement session happened despite the freezing day and the drizzle. These guys were so great about it and didn't let it faze them at all! They are such sweet people and loved getting to know them a bit before the wedding in September which will be at the Black Point Inn in Scarborough. I asked them to say a little bit about themselves and how they got together...so in Chris's own words:

James and I are both true Massachusetts guys.  We grew up here and love living in New England.  We met in Medical School at UMass in 2005.  We developed a great friendship and started dating in 2008.  We ended up moving in together and staying at UMass to complete our residency training.  We are now remaining in Central Massachusetts as we begin our careers, James as a Child Psychiatrist and me as an OB/GYN.  We enjoy all the seasons in New England and love being outside to ski, run, play tennis, and enjoy the beach.  I travelled up to Maine during summers as a child and my parents live there full time now that they are retired.  It has become a very special place for us and we love spending time in Southern Maine, Portland, and Bar Harbor.  We are very close with our families and have two cool cats, Gizmo and Murphy. We can't wait to start he next phase of our lives together and are so blessed that we can show our commitment to each other by getting married this fall with all of our friends and family by our side.

I am so proud that they can get married here in Maine and I am thrilled to get to be the one to capture the day.
