Destination Wedding Photographers Washington DC | Portland Maine
As much as we enjoy photographing large elegant weddings in Washington DC, we also love the chance to shoot intimate weddings in more remote places. The balance keeps things fresh and fun. We never know what we’re going to get when a couple first contacts us, and helping them not only fulfill their wedding day vision but also capture it to the fullest puts the wind in our sails!
Ben and Stephanie opted for a romantic destination wedding on Little Diamond Island off the coast of Portland, Maine. And WOW! was it stunning! The whole day felt like a breath of fresh air, and the atmosphere perfectly mirrored the couple’s live-life-to-the-fullest personality. They both love the coast of Maine – the groom and his family grew up and vacation on the island, one of only 60 residents on the island. Ben and Stephanie tied the knot in front of a charming boathouse (know on the island as the Casino) as the waves gently lapped onto the sand and rocks. They kept the ceremony perfectly simple, spending all of their time focused on each other, their personalized vows, and their commitment to one another in marriage. It was beautiful. They had us all reaching for the tissues!
We definitely had some fun with this creative coastal theme! Stephanie’s beautiful white wedding dress looked so pretty hanging on the side of the boathouse next to the colorful bobbers, bouys and lures. That’s not something you see every day, and the photo authentically captures their love story and personality as a couple.
After their touching vows, everyone headed inside the boathouse for celebration, good food, and lots of toasts! Surrounded by just their closest friends and family, everyone had a great time celebrating this special couple.
The great thing about a destination wedding is that it doesn’t have to end! Each guest had a personalized fishing bobber as a creative escort card which made for a fun key chain gift too!
Congratulations, Ben and Stephanie! We had such a wonderful time photographing this special part of your love story!
