Dramatic Environmental Portraits | Kennebunkport Wedding Photographers

We’re known for our dramatic environmental portraits, like this one of Laura and Ben.


One of our dramatic environmental portraits of Laura and Ben at the Kennebunkport Breakwater, Kennebunkport, Maine wedding photographers

It was Laura and Ben’s September wedding in Kennebunkport, Maine, at the Colony Hotel. What is one of the many awesome things about the Colony Hotel? The nearby beach, unofficially known by locals as, fittingly, Colony Beach, is an easy walk. During our artistic set with Laura and Ben, we headed there.

On the heels of an offshore hurricane, the water level was extremely high. A nearby fisherman on the breakwater, visible in the background, was nearly swamped by a rogue wave. All of this built into the drama that was completed for us with the moody skies.

Being that we love dramatic skies, we were hopeful that the offshore storm was indeed going to generate some great cloud action, and it did. We walked Laura and Ben along the shore after capturing some images with the Colony Hotel in the background. We shot some more of the two of them walking, then posing quietly. Among these there were many favorites, but the image above, with it’s pensive, deep contemplative connection between these two became our favorite. Laura and Ben had just done a first-look, and it was still about an hour and half before their actual ceremony on the lawn at The Colony (a fantastic location for an outdoor, very-Maine-flavored wedding, by the way!).

Lastly, we love the color version of this image but found our real favorite, our #12 of the year in fact, to be this black and white rendition.
