I went into 2016 with a big goal: to book between 10 and 15 weddings. Today, I'm happy to announce that I hit the high end of my goal and will shoot at least 15 weddings this season! I am beyond thrilled and blessed to be doing what I love every day. Specializing in weddings was one of the best business decisions I ever made, as it allows me to perfect my technique in a specific area and devote my time to focus in the wedding genre of photography.
Not only will I be photographing 15 weddings this year, but I'll also be working under some of the best wedding photographers in Maine as a second shooter. Second shooting is a job I absolutely love because it allows me to take a very creative approach to capturing the day. My goal is to create images that tell a story from a completely different perspective of the lead photographer. As much as I love being a lead photographer, I think it's important that I challenge myself beyond the "safe" shots and that's exactly what I do when I'm second shooting.
Photographing weddings takes me all over the Seacoast. Not only do I travel throughout Maine, but I also travel to New Hampshire and Massachusetts to photograph weddings. I love traveling New England. There are so many amazing sites to see and beautiful wedding locations. It truly is one of the best places on Earth to get married. Not only do I enjoy traveling, but I love meeting couples who are in love. It is an amazing time in your life to decide to commit to one another and dedicate one day to bring about all of your closest friends and family to celebrate with you. I also feel honored. These future brides and grooms have entrusted me to photograph one of the most important days of their entire lives. That is truly something that cannot even be described in words. It surely means so much to me.
