Emily and Max asked me to photograph them on a very frigid January afternoon on the Eastern Promenade in Portland, Maine. Emily’s friend Michelle styled her hair and make up. Our first stop was for some hot cocoa to try to combat the temperatures during a quick picnic overlooking the ocean.
Max and Emily told me about their frequent picnics there in much warmer seasons and how the Eastern Prom is one of their favorite places. We drove a little further down to the gazebo and then down to the rocky coast for more photos. Emily and Max were so much fun and even though we were so cold our hands hurt these two kept smiling! In fact there were some points where I told them to stop smiling so much!
Our last stop was to the swings where Emily convinced Max to let her push him. The flakes were starting to fall as the first snow storm of 2015 was rolling in. We ran back to the car but not before a spontaneous photo in the street!
Thank you so much for trusting me with these wonderful images. I look forward to your wedding this September at the Bethel Inn!
