Colby and Andrew come in at #3 with their Kennebunkport engagement photo! What we love about this photo is that Colby and Andrew are so at ease and relaxed!
It was a rather cold early December day, though not so cold that shooting outside was too difficult. These two were great sports, not worrying about heavy coats, rather just to have a great time being themselves.
It’s a great time to chat about how valuable engagement sessions are, for both the couple and for us as their photographers. For the couple, they get to have an idea of how it’ll be during their one-on-one time with their photographers on wedding day. For us, we get the chance ahead of wedding day to let them know we are pretty easy going, and will ensure that they are given the chance to best be themselves. This ultimately pays off big in how they, and we, love their photos.
We find that most couples for sure don’t want to be left to their own accord to “know” what to do during their session. Yet it is vital that once we direct to the point of our couples interacting together, and only looking at the camera when asked. Which is a relatively very small percentage of the time.
Colby and Andrew’s Nonantum Resort wedding next October is going to be one for the record books, we can already tell. And we can’t wait.
Cape Elizabeth Engagement Photo | Maine Wedding Photographers
Dana and James met us in Cape Elizabeth for their engagement session in early November. We loved the feeling of quietude and peacefulness that late fall brings to the coast of Maine. It was really chilly and gray, which lends a whole host of beautiful elements to their Cape Elizabeth engagement photo that comes in at #4 in our countdown.
One of the things we love about this photo is that Dana and James are having lots of fun interacting with each other. They’re really not paying attention to the two photographers, 4 cameras, and 6 lenses standing a dozen yards away! We also love that the boardwalk meanders on past them, drawing your attention toward the future and what waits ahead.
During an engagement session, we tell our couples that this is a more intensive photo session than on wedding day. During a wedding there are so many things going on. There are candid moments interspersed with posed moments, and more time to relax (?) in between.
We’ll see Dana and James in late spring at their Point Lookout wedding. And know that it’s going to be a wonderful day!
Maine Drone Engagement Image | Maine Drone Engagement Photographers
When we met Kelly and Dana in York for their Nubble Light engagement session, the weather conditions were perfect to get a Maine drone engagement image of them. And we wanted to do that somewhere on the water. But one of the stipulations about using the drone is that we can’t fly directly over people who aren’t part of the project.
When we began at Nubble Light, it was too crowded with sightseers. So worked our way towards the York River, over by the Harris Island Road. It tends to be a bit quieter there, and that proved to be the case during Kelly and Dana’s engagement session.
What we love about drone photos is, not unexpectedly, the totally different viewpoint it affords us. Everything ends up looking differently. Even the water refracts light differently and presents itself often with more “Caribbean colors”, as we like to call it. That, and the unique aspects of seeing our subjects in a whole new way. As such, this is our #5 top engagement photo of 2018!
Kelly and Dana’s wedding will be in late June in Kennebunkport at the Nonantum Resort. And to say we are looking forward to it would be an understatement!
Mowfield Farm Engagement Photo | Maine Engagement Photographers
We’re so excited to bring you the next up in the “Top of 2018” countdown series! Krystal and Greg come in at number six with their Mowfield Farm engagement photo, in our Top 6 engagement photos of 2018
What we love about this photo is that it perfectly captures who they are both as individuals and as a couple. Both Krystal and Greg are very kind, fun, witty people. Krystal tends to be a bit on the shyer side, while Greg is a bit more outgoing.
One of the huge values of an engagement session, is that you get to know your couples and their personalities. When wedding day rolls around, as a photographer, you will want to make your clients as relaxed as possible.
When our couples see their photos, they’re going to remember how they felt in that moment. If they were feeling relaxed, excited, nervous, not only will that show in the photo, but they’ll feel that feeling all over again when the look at the image.
Our goal is to make our couples feel and look their best during their engagement session and of course for sure on wedding day!

Unique Maine Drone Wedding Image | Maine Drone Wedding Photography
There’s nothing we didn’t love about Jenna and Will’s elegant Castine Maine wedding. From the planning (wow to Sweetest Thing Weddings!), to the florals, the church, the families and friends, the quintessential New England town of Castine, to this beautiful couple. This unique Maine drone wedding image just put the whole day over the top!
Jenna and Will married at Will’s family’s Castine home. Replete with an amazing backyard garden. But their wedding day, for us, was our chance to truly immortalize this very special place for Jenna and Will. We placed them into a whimsical and playful pose and took the photo from a couple of hundred feet in the air.
It’s not just a unique Maine drone wedding image, it’s our #1 drone photo of the year!!
Beautiful Maine Drone Wedding Photo | Sebasco Harbor Resort Weddings
Belle and David, what else can we say about your wonderful Sebasco Harbor Resort wedding?!? This is one of our very favorites from your wedding day. This beautiful Maine drone wedding photo was possible for many reasons. 1) Belle and David were willing to pose at the pool, 2) it was early June, and as nice as it was out, that’s early for the pool in Maine; and 3) three sides of Sebasco Harbor Resort’s beautiful salt water pool is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean.
Having no one else around while we’re composing a drone wedding photo, the better. It gives us the freedom to compose shots like this without the need for much post-processing intervention.
Things that came together, to make this our #2 top drone wedding photo of 2018, were all those chaise lounges in one hue of blue; the aqua color of the water in the (saltwater) pool; and how adorable Belle and David laying there. We love it when a viewer has to look twice to see what is going on in a shot. This shot truly embodies it all. This could have easily been a first-place tie, but, alas, Liz and I did come up with our #1 drone image of 2018, and we will show you that tomorrow!
