Laura & Josh: Maine Wedding Photography

In June I travelled to Winthrop to photograph the wedding of Laura & Josh at the YMCA Camp. High School sweethearts who are now husband and wife ~I had such a fun day with these two and their guests.

I had to pull the cover over on the side of the road a few times, to take some photos of the gorgeous lupines~ I am glad I did as the color scheme fit perfectly into the wedding.

I was greeted at the camp by the fabulous Megan Lord of Pencil Events~ she handled all of the day of coordination and decorating, so Laura and Josh could relax and hang out with their bridal parties

I made my way to the waterfront where the best man had just delivered a gorgeous neckalce to Laura from Josh

My kind of bride~ a comfortable one ~ flip flops for wedding shoes

Details to accent the dress

I left the girls for a bit, to go visit the boys~ here Josh holds his gift from Laura

Laura is a dental hygentist~ so clean teeth were a must for the wedding day~ Josh and his best man give each other a helping hand

Josh was relaxed and eager to make Laura his wife

Back to the girls cabin where Laura was getting in the dress

I loved these fun signs that the couple created to point guests to important wedding events

A strong threat of rain all day caused the wedding ceremony to be moved indoors ~ but thanks to Megan it was a lovely and romantic setting for the couple to say their vows

The rain held off for some outdoor formal photos

The guys asked to do a jumping shot~ these boys got some air

With sprinkles lakeside~ I tucked Laura and Josh into a tree covered area to finish up their portraits

Josh has this great way of dipping Laura slightly when he kisses her~ I adored it

I loved all the ideas the couple came up with for decorations

Even making sure the camp mascot was sporting a top hat and bow tie

The perfect favors for this wedding

After their enterance~ the couple enjoyed their first dance

Both best man and maid of honor gave very heartfelt toasts

After some fun cake smashing~ DJ Dave Dionne kicked off the dancing ~ everyone had a great time

I tried a little bit of different post precessing for a few images

A kiss and that dip again to end the night!

Laura and Josh~ thank you so much for letting me photograph your wedding day~ it was truly my pleasure!  All my best in your future happiness!!
