KATE + MARK / POWNAL, MAINE

Kate and Mark met at ZuzuBar’s soul music night in Cambridge near Boston, MA. That’s where they began fall in love with each other. Kate and Mark were 7,000 miles apart when they planned their wedding. She was teaching in South Korea. He was on a contract in South Carolina. Both have a passion for community, education, and the outdoors.

Claire, a friend of mine who is Kate’s high school friend, introduced us. We were living 12 miles off the coast of Rockland, Maine, on the island of North Haven. I was commercial lobstering. Claire was co-founding Fox I Printworks.

“Jump in. We’re heading to the beach to bbq and watch the sunset.” Away we went in Claire’s antique Toyota 4-Runner to celebrate her half-birthday. She’s classy like that.

Kate and Mark were married on her family’s property in Pownal, Maine, located thirty minutes north of Maine’s largest city, Portland. The landscape was beautiful with farms and smells of summer in every direction. Mark readied himself at the Kendall Tavern Inn, a lovely bed and breakfast restored from an early 1800’s farmhouse located the heart of Freeport, Maine.

An artist, Kate hand-painted one-of-a-kind watercolor paper weathervanes as gifts for her and Mark’s families and friends. Excited to marry each other, Kate and Mark kissed each other halfway through the ceremony and began walking down the grassy field they were wed in, only to be called back by the priest saying there was more to finish. Who knew? Kate’s friend Tica played folk music. Mark’s friends had a flash mob on the dance floor. That’s love.

KARA & JAY

Although I commercial lobster during the spring, summer, and fall, I always take time off to photograph weddings. I like the balance of working on the ocean and photographing one of the most special day’s of a couples’ life together.

The third Saturday of July I made my way off North Haven and across the calm Penobscot Bay in my lobster-style boat to photograph Jay and Kara’s wedding with my friend and talented wedding videographer, Morgan Kirkham from Real Wedding Films. Morgan does the best wedding videography work in New England and is your go-to guy if you’re looking for video work.

Jay and Kara’s wedding was held on her family’s property consisting of a traditional New England house and dirt road that curved down to a quaint cottage on a lake in Bremen, Maine. I photographed the getting ready and ceremony aspects of their wedding, and later assisted Morgan with videography which can be seen at the bottom of this post.

Jay and Kara were my kind of folks: down to earth, kind, compassionate, and truly in love with each other. Jay’s high school band played Kara’s favorite song at the end of the night and we danced through the cool summer evening air. I can still feel it on my skin. Thanks, Jay and Kara.

(WEDDING) NICK + ANGELA (MERRYSPRING NATURE CENTER) CAMDEN, MAINE

Nick and Angela’s wedding made me feel.

Different parts of every wedding make me feel in their own unique ways: the way the bride looks at her groom, the way the groom looks at his bride, something that gets said in the best-man and maid-of-honor speeches, the bride’s dance with her father, a story a friend or family member shares with me about the bride and groom, why they’re excited to be there, why it was so important for them to be there, when they fell in love themselves.

For me, being at Nick and Angela’s was like waking up in the morning, looking over across my bed, and seeing the person laying next to me that I love. I saw this kind of love when I photographed Nick and Angela, their friends, and their families. It’s a feeling we can all identify with, I hope.

I met Nick and Angela through two of my great, long-time friends, Kelly and Jenna. Jenna’s father, Leonard, or Lenny Rick as I call him, co-owns The Waterfront, a timeless restaurant here in Camden, Maine where Jenna and Angela work together. It’s nestled into the harbor and tucked behind a building off Bayview Street. Whenever I have friends coming to town that I can’t take out to eat or whenever I met tourists in-town looking for a good place to eat, I tell them to go to The Waterfront. I know the food’s always going to be good and the environment always warm with lobstermen eating alongside hedge fund managers in a day and age when we’re all searching for something raw and authentic.

Raw and authentic. That’s what Nick and Angela’s wedding was. That’s why I feel fortunate to have been a part of their day.
