There is no greater compliment a wedding photographer can receive than when a couple refers you to their friends and family. When a client is willing to send their loved ones to me for something as important as their wedding photography, it tells me that they not only value the images I captured but also enjoyed the experience. So when Tyler and Jillian contacted me to shoot their wedding, I was really excited that I was available. I had photographed Jillian’s brother’s wedding a couple of years ago. I genuinely enjoyed getting to know and work with this family, and clearly they felt the same. Tyler and Jillian had chosen the Colony Hotel in beautiful Kennebunkport, Maine for their wedding. The hotel’s seaside location made for a beautiful backdrop to their outdoor ceremony, which was evenly lit by an overcast sky. We were able to take advantage of a variety of settings, from the sandy beach just steps from the hotel to the pristine courtyard overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Both Tyler and Jillian were amazing to work with, and enthusiastic about capturing some creative images throughout the day. Even when I put Jillian on a bicycle in her wedding dress with Tyler at the handle bar, who turned out not to know how to ride a bike, they were willing to try. We did opt to keep the kickstand down though to avoid any accidents. The payoff is the fun and unique wedding photography we captured commemorating Tyler and Jillian’s special day.
