I don’t even know where to begin. Kevin is hands down INCREDIBLE at what he does. He photographed our wedding and also had a huge part in doubling as our wedding planner the days leading up, and the day of the wedding. I can’t even put in to words how easy he made the entire day start to finish. The photographs he captured were nothing short of amazing and he made the process so fun at the same time. His assistant Alexis was as incredible as Kevin and so helpful throughout the day. Kevin’s energy and creativity is exactly what every wedding needs. He made the process so much more than just taking pictures. His ability to multi-task and deal with the wedding party, wild children, our French bulldog, elderly relatives that can’t get around well and still be able to orchestrate a perfect wedding was just amazing to watch. He was down right impressive. I can’t recommend Good Maine enough. It felt more like we were legitimately hanging out with two of our friends when we were doing photos between our first look and ceremony. If you’re looking for a wedding photographer, I can promise you, stop looking and call Kevin ASAP! Trust his process and his vision because it’s nothing short of amazing.

Kevin of Good Maine is AMAZING
The Mary Poppins Man – that is what many of our guests started calling Kevin Ouellette of Good Maine! And we could not agree more! From our very first meeting with Kevin, we knew he was the right fit for us and our wedding. He sold us hook-line-and-sinker on having a first look and thinking about our wedding day as a whole day and not just a 6 to 8 hour event. We sat down in our first meeting with him and had our entire wedding day scheduled within a few hours. He made us look at our wedding from several angles, not just in the traditional ways; made us question what it was that we truly wanted from our day and what was most important. We are very organized people and Kevin was right in line with this which was great! Leading up to our wedding day, we kept talking about Kevin to our bridal party and parents and kept getting asked – are you sure this is one person and there aren’t three Kevins? Well, our friends and family were not disappointed when they met Kevin at 7am the morning of our wedding! He came in with so much energy and not once throughout the day did that energy dissipate. We felt such a level confidence in Kevin that it was easy for us to release control over to him and truly enjoy the day! Taking pictures around Granite Ridge and Norway was so much fun! We are not the kind of couple very big on photos or being in front of others when showing affection, but Kevin was very good at inserting jokes and making us feel comfortable. He totally embraced our love for construction and tried to incorporate that into our pictures as much as possible! Kevin and his assistant Alexis were amazing throughout the day but especially when it came to the reception! Kevin really knows how to get a crowd to have fun and kept the party alive all night – guests did not want to leave! He was up all night at his DJ station dancing and keeping everyone very happy with the music selection! He knew what music worked for the crowd and what didn’t and played into that well throughout the night. Weddings are clearly something Kevin understands to a tee and he orchestrates them so well!! We cannot thank Kevin enough for an amazing day and our guests continue to tell us how awesome he was!!Sent on 09/29/2019

Thank you, Kevin!
If you are reading this review, you’re probably trying to decide whether or not you should hire Good Maine. If you are looking for a sign, this is it. Call Kevin immediately and do not look back. From helping us to plan our wedding during the months beforehand to taking care of everything we needed day of (he even made sure I ate!), Kevin was our guy. He is personable, talented, and—most importantly—he gets the job done.Sent on 07/24/2019
When we told people leading up to the wedding that we had hired a planner/photographer/DJ hybrid, we were met with raised eyebrows. We heard a lot of “one person can’t possibly do all that!” and “no one can do everything—did you read the reviews to see if he’s actually any good?” We did read the reviews, Kevin IS that good, and now we are trying to figure out how to put into words just how glad we are that we got to work with him.
Kevin has this incredible ability to bring both peace and excitement at the same time. He made me feel relaxed and confident as we prepared for our wedding—especially because we had planned it down to the minute in the months leading up to the big day. I should say something here—I love brainstorming, but I hate planning. I had lots of little ideas that I knew I wanted to incorporate, but no idea how to make it all come together. My husband and I knew exactly what we wanted our wedding to feel like, but didn’t know how to translate that into an actual event.
Luckily, Kevin did. Kevin listened to us, got to know us, and offered his professional advice whenever we needed it. He and his assistant, Alexis, were invaluable on our wedding day. Our ceremony was perfect, our pictures are stunning, and our guests can’t stop telling us how much fun they had. I mean, seriously, Kevin calmed a two-and-a-half year old with ant bites, kept everyone happy on one of the hottest and most humid days of the year, and had us dancing so much at the reception that my husband’s ring flew off! Then, he organized a mini search party, found the ring, and got us dancing again. Everything that Kevin did exceeded our expectations.
In summary, I’ll leave you with the words my husband said to me right after we left our first meeting with Kevin: “I’m so glad we hired that guy.”
