When a creative bride who is also a photographer reaches out to you to photograph your wedding you instantly feel two emotions… excited and nervous! Alexa and Shaun were 100% supportive of my creative vision of their wedding day and want to thank them for that! Their wedding day was so thoughtful, creative, family and detail oriented. There was so much meaning and intent on every detail in their wedding day.
The barn was completely redone and overhauled for their wedding day. I loved seeing the pride pour through them sharing it with their family and friends. I loved how they incorporated their pups and grand mothers in their wedding day. Anyone who knows me loves when people reuse things, their decorations and signs even 1 bar was made from items pulled from the barn. Even the groom made his boutonnieres for his gentleman with fishing lures which reflect this couples passion for fishing seen in their engagement photos here ! Even the cuff links with deer antlers. This couple I mean who doesn’t love a creative wedding in an old barn in Maine among foliage, bonfire and dancing?!! Here on out when ever I hear the song Footloose I will always think of Alexa’s serious dance moves!
Thank you for asking me to capture your wedding day!
Love & Joy
We loved seeing all our ideas and dreams come to life. We planned this wedding from start to finish with the help of so many family members & friends. Homemade signs were created out of old barn wood, I strung placards across old found shudders, our friends and shaun created a homemade bar, homemade corn hole boards, extra large jenga, & mini golf. The bonfire started up just after dinner and provided warmth for the instant fall day or was a nice break from the dance floor.
At the Chatham Squire back in their hometown. She was waitressing and he was having lunch with his mom. She mentioned to a coworker that she thought he was attractive and oddly knew him and told him to come back later when she was off her shift.
Never go to bed mad and don’t be afraid of being different.
wish we had a bigger dance floor; we let our guests eat some of our cake-we had way too much left over.
he proposed to me under the elm tree at my parents farm where we got married and danced our first dance under at our wedding
favorite part: little details that would pop into my head and seeing them come to life. Most stressful part was making sure all the vendors knew and had everything they needed to be self sufficient the day of the wedding.
the bear rug and red stag were both hunted and eaten by our family. The blue vases we used to pour water for our rock ceremony are identical family heirlooms from each side of the bride and grooms family.
Just got back from Montana. Bozeman;Glacier National Park; Missoul ;back in Bozeman. Brew hopped and fished all over MT.
Shaun’s Favorite thing about Alexa is how spontaneous and up for pretty much anything she is. Biggest Pet Peeve: Her long hair is everywhere, particularly in our drains, and she’s not the best at steadily cleaning that hair out. Alexa: fav thing about Shaun is handy and capable he is of almost anything-he’s my solution for everything. Biggest Pet Peeve: he procrastinates until the last minute on things-where I am a planner.
I felt like I was hanging out with a girlfriend-I felt so comfortable around you! You are so fun and creative as well-so we work well together.
