Short Sands Elopement

When we first exchanged emails, she said to me “I hope you can be friends with a Slytherin.” That was all it took for me to be so beyond stoked to work with Morgan + Kendall! These two were SO sweet and laid-back. Photographing their Short Sands elopement was so dreamy 🙂 I couldn’t stop smiling during and after – it’s times like these where I get to experience such joy in what I do! They exchanged their vows overlooking the ocean in York, ME. Then we moved onto Short Sands beach to get photos of the two of them!

Morgan and Kendall met through their job in Corrections in New York. They took things slow in the beginning, which has led to a wonderful past few years together. I love the way they look at each other. When Kendall said “okay!” when Morgan asked him to get in the water with her – I LOVED that. The photos of the two of them with the water coming in around their feet are some of my favorite ones!

I can tell that the love and care these two have for each other runs so deep! It’s a great reminder of what marriage is about. Morgan and Kendall, it was an absolute honor to photograph your elopement last summer. Thanks for choosing me and trusting me!

Here are some of my favorites from their intimate elopement at Short Sands!

You can usually find me adding books to my never-ending “to read” list; challenging myself to do things like not shop for a year; sneaking crispy m+ms from my secret hiding spot so I don’t have to share them with my daughter; and melting over seeing my children smiling at each other.

Oh and I guess I should mention - I’m a seasoned Portland wedding photographer who provides not only kick-ass wedding photos, but also a meaningful and laid-back experience from the time you book to the delivery of your final images.
