sonya and patrick :: ocean gateway portland, maine wedding :: a love supreme photo

i was organizing these photos for the preview today, and as i was sorting them out i suddenly realized that these weren't long time friends. the faces, the energy, the smiles...they were all so familiar. and they were on the day of, too. it was like we had met kindred spirits. being a part of this wedding was so much more than being a photographer. i felt like i was a guest and friend too. sonya and patrick have an amazing love between them and it was a privilege to capture it for them. their family and friends are the most beautiful, loving people i've ever met. they all know how to have fun and celebrate. they all know how to support an everlasting love that has been growing for years. they all know how to get down and dance the night away. sonya and patrick...it was a pleasure photographing your beautiful, amazing, wonderful, heartfelt wedding. you two are inspiring and we will forever treasure our time spent with you...xo
