Kristen and Justin were married in Maine at a beautiful ceremony inside Portland’s historic Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, followed by a wonderful celebration at the Ocean Gateway Terminal overlooking the waters of Casco Bay and the Portland harbor. I love the opportunity to photograph at Portland’s Eastern Promenade, where a trolley from Mainely Tours brought us after the ceremony to create some wedding photographs of Kristen and Justin by the waterfront. Some of my favorites things about Kristen and Justin’s wedding was Kristen’s mom’s famous cupcakes that she brings to every big family occasion that were on proud display at the reception, the family and friends that came up to me at the reception to chat and tell me family stories, knowing Justin from the Maine wedding industry and being trusted to be on their team of wedding professionals who made their day possible, the fun family wedding dance at their reception known as the Western Pennsylvania bridal dance . . . it all lead to a memorable wedding experience for me, but more than anything, it was being able to work for such sweet, kind, caring, grounded, down-to-earth, meant-to-be-together, individuals.
To Kristen and Justin, it was my sincere honor to be your wedding photographer and create these images for you. We hope you will look back on your wedding photographs with fondness for years to come, and that these images will always take you back to your beautiful Portland, Maine wedding.
