I had the pleasure of working with a fantastic team of vendors to make this shoot a success! In the initial brainstorming sessions with Emily of Emily Elizabeth Events and Amy of Pretty Flowers Maine, we knew we wanted something completely different. Not only did we want to break new grounds and show something that's never been done before, we also wanted to use the beautiful Maine winter landscapes as our inspiration and setting!
Model scouting to find the perfect fit was a breeze. I have shot Grace before and she's a beauty in front of the camera. Pete is a local oyster farmer and was comfortable in his role, especially when shucking oysters for the crew to feast on. They met for the first time a couple of hours before we starting shooting, but did well representing their roles as husband and wife. (Which can be totally awkward!) Thank you guys!
The shoot was flawless. This team of vendors is amazing and so very professional. I would hire them in a heartbeat for my own wedding (ok, well...I did!) and I just enjoy working with them so much.
This shoot is featured in the upcoming issue of Real Maine Weddings, so be sure to pick up a copy!
