Sampson & Megan's Portland Wedding at O'Maine Studios

I walked into the historic Airbnb located in Portland where the girls were getting ready and I could hear the buzz of the bridesmaids. They were getting their hair and makeup done, while Megan took me on a little tour. I was so excited to see her! Once I said hi to everyone, I started taking detail photos and I just knew that it was going to be a good day!! She had everything all ready to go, from her dress to the perfume, and the invitations SHE made herself!!! Everything was stunning!!! I truly have the world’s BEST brides!! 

It was a sticky, august afternoon and the forecast was calling for rain, but things were looking promising for the first look and the ceremony!! Megan and Sampson shared their first look in a small courtyard and then before we knew it, it was time for them to get married!! I loved so many things about their ceremony. I loved that Sampson walked down the aisle with their dog… I loved that it was the perfect mix of an urban and rural feel and I loved that they were surrounded by their closet friends and family.

Megan and Sampson have been one of my favorite couples. They are laid-back, fun, and truly caring people. I loved that their wedding was carted by the Mainely Burgers food truck, and even when it started down pouring no one was discouraged. In fact one of their guest searched for the rainbow that added a hint of magic to their wedding day.

My favorite part of the day, was capturing a few portraits for them at sunset. It was just the two of them enjoying the beautiful views and allowed them to have a few minutes together, away from the crowd. Their wedding day was filled with amazing moments, and they will soon be heading off to Italy for their honeymoon which I am sure they are going to love.

Enjoy some of my favorite moments and images that tell the story of their day!!! …
