Portland Maine Wedding

While I was below, doing the processional, Liz, my partner, was in the balcony of Yarmouth, Maine’s First Parish Church, and captured this image that I feel “says it all”. If, out of the hundreds and hundreds of images we come home with from a wedding, one was tasked to pick “just one” (as hard as that would be!) to best tell the story of your day, perhaps there would be no better single image than this one. Taken with our fisheye lens, this image has taken in the height of excitement for both the bride, walking up the aisle, emotions overflowing, with her dad; and the groom looking anxiously her way. Their full, and sizable, wedding party looks on with splendor. The girls’ beautifully colored dresses; the mens’ simply elegant summery tan suits nicely complemented each other.  The church is filled to near capacity with friends, family, and guests. Just a few of the reason that I feel so fortunate to be a Portland Maine wedding photographer. So, where was I in all this? I was at the top of the aisle, capturing a priceless close up shot (seen in a panel below) of the bride and dad. Why can’t you see me?  Simple: for the sake of a special image as this one is, I removed myself from the photograph during the post-production process.
