Maine Wedding Photographer of the Year 2017 | Maine Wedding Photographers

We’re excited to announce that Russ has been awarded the Maine Professional Photographer’s Association, Maine Wedding Photographer of the Year 2017. Yay! We can’t stop smiling!

Have we mentioned about how we love photographing weddings(!)? When we shoot, we have multiple clients. Our clients are the bride and groom, of course, as well as their families, friends, bridesmaids and groomsmen, guests. It also includes those who couldn’t attend but will enjoy the photos from afar. They’ll even feel like they were actually there. That’s part of our job, and one we take very seriously!

Photographing weddings to win!

We are also shooting to make stunning images that will help us foster our professional growth and development. We do this by taking the best of the best and we enter them into professional competition! While the emotion and real moments we capture always stand among the most likely to score well, there’s another category we also love to enter. These are our artistic and “environmental portraits”.  Here is an example of an environmental portrait:

There is a serious amount of photographic talent in this state; and the wedding photography competition is really tough. We raise our own bars and raise the bar of wedding photography among each other when with the friendly yet spirited competition. Everyone wins.

Maine Wedding Photographer of the Year 2017!

The 2017 Maine Professional Photographer’s Association (MPPA) annual convention and image competition was held in Portland, Maine in March, 2017. In 2016 the MPPA brought in a new award category, that of Maine Wedding Photographer of the Year. Russ very proudly took this award home, for the second time!maine wedding photographer of the year 2017

Those elements include impact, story telling, technical excellence, creativity, and composition. This is why you hire us!maine wedding photographer of the year

Environmental Wedding Portraiture | Kennebunkport Maine Wedding Photographers

What is environmental wedding portraiture? For us, it’s when we take our couples into the area surrounding their wedding location. We then find the right look in terms of direction, light, composition, and background. Then we direct the couple relative to what we we’d like to see them doing in the photo. Now and again, something different happens during this process, such as our #2 image. We’ll elaborate more below. #2 environmental wedding portraiture of 2016A great example of environmental wedding portraiture, Jennifer and Michael on the Kennebunkport breakwater

ARTISTIC WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY | THE TOP 16 OF 2016 | YORK HARBOR WEDDING MAINE PHOTOGRAPHERS

Artistic Wedding Photography | York Harbor Maine Wedding Photographers

We’re known for many things, one of them being our artistic wedding photography. We also love incorporating architecture and the environment. Further, two of our favorite environmental elements to add into artistic couples portraiture are walls and buildings. In any case there needs to be something special about the composition and set. To that end, we feel this photo very well exemplifies that!
