As a Maine wedding photographer, I get to meet couples that reside in Maine and those that come for a destination wedding.

Each wedding is different and unique in its own way; the best part is discovering the venue they chose to match their wedding style.

Most of the time when a couple books me as their wedding photographer, they have already decided on their favorite Maine wedding venue.

However, there are times when I get to be part of their vision and offer some of my favorite Maine wedding venues.

Being a wedding photographer near Portland Maine is a dream because I get to document one of the most memorable days of people’s lives. On top of that, in the most beautiful state.

What could be better than a wedding on the water next to Maine’s maritime heritage?

Not From Around Here

When you aren’t from around here it can be tough to find the perfect wedding venue

However, when this couple visited Maine Maritime Museum they fell in love and knew this was the perfect wedding venue for them.

This beautiful bride is from Europe, and she loved the idea of getting married by the water.

What captured their attention the most was their love for the large boats.

This couple loved the idea of having their friends and family gather in Bath, Maine without having to travel.

This wedding was stunning and definitely included Maine staples.

Needless to say, the wedding was perfect and the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath Maine was the perfect wedding location.
