Emily + Jonathan | Married! 09.05.15 | Grey Havens Inn Wedding | Georgetown, Maine Wedding | Maine Wedding Photographer

This is Emily & Jonathan! You might remember them from their adorable Portland engagement session.:)These two met while both working at Maine Medical Center. Emily is from Alabama and Jonathan is from Georgia and they had both moved to Maine 3 months apart without ever knowing the other existed. They were pushed together at work since they are both “redheaded Southerners” and the next thing they knew they were a couple.:)These two are possibly the sweetest couple alive — if you’ve ever heard of “Southern charm” and doubted it, just spend some time with these two and you’ll be a believer. They celebrated their wedding at Grey Havens Inn in Georgetown, Maine — a stunning town and an even more stunning venue! They aimed for a soft, coastal, almost ethereal vibe for the wedding day and I think they nailed it… but I liked how Emily mentioned to me “To be honest, you could dress me in a paper bag and call me Bob at the altar, and I’d still be all starry-eyed for this man.”. That’s true love, y’all. 😉 My favorite part of the day? TWO sets of twins! Emily’s sisters are identical twins, and Jonathan has an identical twin brother! What are the odds of that!?

Bosco | Celebrate Life! | Maine Pet Photographer

This is my good friend Margaret and her pup, Bosco. Margaret is the sister of one of my best friends, Matt. I spent basically 50% of my high school days at their house — eating italians, watching TV, playing video games. Their whole family is super special to me, dogs included. At the time it was just Bosco and their girl pup, Ivy — two peas in a pod. I remember every time I’d come over — it didn’t matter if it was 4-5 times in a week — they would run to the door and bark at me. I spent many an afternoon sitting on the couch with Bosco, scratching behind his ears and snuggling up next to him. So when Matt got in touch and let me know that Bosco wasn’t doing too well — he was an old pup anyway, but now had incurable cancer as well — I told him of course I’d do a shoot before he passed. I call these shoots Celebrate Life sessions and their purpose is to get some nice, natural photos of your elderly and/or terminally ill pet before they pass. Margaret wanted to be the one to spend time with Bosco during the shoot, so I went to their home and we just spent a while loving him, petting him, and snuggling him while I got some photos. We ended up having very good timing — he passed away less than 2 weeks later. I’m so happy I was able to get these shots of him with his puppy siblings, and of the two of them together!
