Janeka & Jeff | September 10, 2016 | Bar Harbor, Maine
There’s no better excuse to make a trip back to my hometown in Maine than to photograph a beautiful coastal wedding! This wedding happened to be for an old friend from high school (we actually took a school trip to Mexico together way back in the day!) so getting to photograph a great couple in such a gorgeous area was a match made in heaven. While I of course love the mountains of Vermont, nothing quite gets me like the beauty of the coast of Maine. My older brother just got married at the Bar Harbor Club back in August, so I was excited to be back to this gorgeous venue with my camera in hand. Janeka & Jeff live in Boston (see their Boston engagement session HERE), so they used this opportunity to bring all their loved ones to a place that was very special to them. Surrounded by friends, family, and beautiful Maine scenery, the Mr & Mrs Doyle had such a beautiful wedding day!
Loved Janeka’s final look at herself before heading down to meet Jeff! Watching a bride see their look come all together beautifully is one of my favorite moments of the day :)
Such a sweet moment between Janeka & her grandmother ❤️
LOVED this wedding party!
One huge bonus of doing a first look is that it gives you the flexibility to take some time to take portraits somewhere else if you want… In this case, we were able to swing by the waterfront in Bar Harbor between the ceremony & cocktail hour for these AMAZING waterfront photos! The cloud coverage rolled in at the perfect time and my photographer & Mainer heart was swooning :)
This band kept the dance floor jam packed the entire night!
That moment when the groom gives one last voluntary “nuzzle” on the dance floor. Hahaha this is why I love these two!
… And I make yet another appearance on the dance floor at a wedding. But when challenged to a dance off, you can’t say no!!
