Downtown Portland, Maine Wedding for Kati and Andrew 3/30/13

Kati came to meet me with her mother and maid of honor when she was picking out her photographer. She is one of the most down to earth and easy to get along with people I have had the pleasure of working with. I truly loved her laid back and easy approach to the wedding. Even when she got somewhat stuck trying to get into her dress she kept her cool and went right back to her beautiful giant smile directly afterward. 

I loved getting to capture the friends and family portraits right in downtown Portland as the sun was setting. The

Old Port

is such a beautiful part of the city and I always love taking portraits there. 

Andrew and Kati have a wonderful way together and they are truly at ease with each other. Their friends and family obviously adore them. And they all knew how to have a great party! As always

Brian Zutter

made the dance floor magical with his amazing lighting and great choices for keeping the party going all night!

A huge thank you also to Melanie Voros from

Blissful Beginnings

for making the day flow so smoothly. And if you want the most amazingly delicious (as well as lovely) wedding cake call Jessica from

Nothing Bakes Like A Parrott

.

Yum! I am proud to be able to work with some of the best wedding vendors in the area and recommend them. (:

So here Kati and Andrew are some highlights of your beautiful day and the beginning of your life together. I thank you for allowing me to get to know you both and capture your love. Cheers to many years of happiness together!!

In love and life...Jen

As always I have started with my favorite portraits from the day. 

A beautiful angle taken by amazing assistant Jamie. 

So grateful to Jamie for capturing this emotional moment. I love this portrait of Kati's mom Vicky seeing her cross the street. 

8.20.11 rangely maine, heidi & louie

heidi and louie were married in rangely maine on maine street. it was a perfect maine location for the meeting of french and american family and friends. the day was sunny and clear. there were lawn games during the cocktail hour, families, children, baby ducks, and lots of french and english mingled with laughter.

i love getting to know my couples and these two were no exception. i had met heidi and her mom before the big day and loved them. but i didn't get to meet louie until the wedding day. he was so charming and funny that i can see why all day he was always surrounded by people. i didn't see him alone for a moment. (:

i look forward to seeing them on the trips to visit the states since they are now back home in canada. may you have many years of happiness and laughter together heidi and louie! cheers.

becca & aaron, 10-3-10

i met becca on facebook through my sister in law. i love meeting people through people that i know. it feels so much more intimate right from the start. she told me all about her plans for her wedding including many many handmade items. ideas that i thought were just amazing. like paper flower arrangements made from recycled bridal magazines, hand cut paper mobiles that hung from the ceiling at the reception, right down to her gorgeous hand sewn gown created by someone she knew. yvonne at kimera design also made all the beautiful bridesmaids dresses, all the dress sashes, and the men's ties.

i love everything about the way she planned this wedding as it is the way i try and do things; thinking outside the box as it were. it made me happy and the execution was so very beautiful. not to mention that the bride & groom and all of their friends were just so happy. (and great dancers too!) as always i was honored to have been invited to record this amazing event.

kristi & matt

july 17th, 2010
these two picked a perfect day and beautiful locations. downtown outside the eastland park hotel proved to be a lot of fun for taking photos of the guys. i love the cathedral where they were married. it is an amazing portland landmark. after the ceremony we went to spring point light in south portland to do some shots and it was gorgeous blue skies for us!

matt's work has to do with trains and he was really interested in doing some photos with trains in some way. so i went before the wedding and scouted out a spot where we could sneak into a train yard discreetly. it turned out to be a lot of fun and i am so glad they were up for something really different.

back at the eastland ballroom was dinner and dancing. the room was beautiful and they did a great job with everything, but especially the flambe' dessert which is a great 'show'.

thank you to kristi and matt for making the day so great. you were both so sweet, laid back, up for whatever i asked you to do, and a lot of fun to be around!
