Emily and Kameron went through a lot to get to this day, but it was still absolutely beautiful nonetheless. Their summer wedding took place at a new venue in Birch Harbor, Maine called Oceanwood Wedding and Event Barn. Their ceremony took place nearby the barn alongside a small pond. Kameron and his stepdad hand built all of the wooden benches and arbor for the ceremony. Emily and her dad walked down the aisle to a song that was sung by a close high school friend that recently passed away. I don't think there was a dry eye around.
After they shared their first dance and emotional speeches, we snuck away from the reception for golden hour photos on the rocky coast. They stepped away from the craziness of the day, embraced each other, and reflected on how they got to where they were.
At the end of those portraits, I asked if they would be up for trying something new. When they said "sure!", I handed them my camera and told them to take a few portraits of each other... I set the settings, told them where to aim and which button to press - the rest was up to them. At first they were a little unsure of what to do and said "this is hard" but then they started coming up with a couple of their own poses and the results were PRICELESS.
Scroll to the end to see the individual photos they captured of each other and the personality that just shines through.
