Maine is nicknamed “Vacationland” and for good reason. Kayla and Phil, although Maine residents, vacation in the Boothbay area every year. It’s become a tradition. They are members of the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens and chose this wonderfully magical place as the location for their engagement photos. I love flowers and this place is just brimming with them! Kayla was explaining to me that just a couple months ago there were tulips where the hydrangeas are now, about the rose garden, and how many couples choose this venue for their wedding venue.
Phil and Kayla told me about the story of how they met and I have to say, it seemed a lot like they found their serendipity at a restaurant in Massachusetts. I had to laugh when they both blurted out that they love burgers!
While I was shooting there were other guests watching Kayla and Phil as they spent some quiet moments together near the pond. I overheard one mention, “those two have a real romance.” I couldn’t agree more.
I am excited to join them on their wedding day and photograph their event at The Bethel Inn in Bethel, Maine. Congratulations, Kayla & Phil!
