Down-To-Earth, Rooted In Intention. Photography for the couple seeking meaningful connection on their wedding day
I'm a little bit different than a lot of pros you'll come across.
If we're being honest, a lot of photographers can take or edit photos similar
to me but the photos you receive should only be half the experience!
Let me back up and ask you this...how many times have you heard someone say:
"My wedding was so stressful!"
"If I could do it all over again, I'd do it differently."
"I never had a chance to enjoy myself."
Many in the wedding industry believe that it's normal and even necessary to host an elaborate, overly orchestrated event that's likely going to leave you feeling stressed out, exhausted and disconnected.
Who wants that on their wedding day?!
I know for a fact that weddings can be different. I believe that you can have an amazing wedding with less fuss
and enjoy every minute of it.
Seriously. It's OKAY to have a wedding your way and I'm here to help you make that happen all while delivering
Here's How I Help You Connect With Each Other On Your Wedding Day.
I let your event unfold naturally. I'm not going to stage every moment or drag you through hours of stylized shooting. I want you to enjoy and be present for all of the good stuff on your wedding day.
As a minimalist, I carry only the essentials. I'm a "fly on the wall" not the paparazzi with second and third shooters, fancy lights, reflectors and more. I get it! You're not Jay Z & Beyonce, you're just two people who happen to seriously love each other and you want to celebrate that with your people.
I'm passionate about intimate weddings. I'll help you through each step of the planning process with a focus on making it your own. I'm not just going to book you and then see you again on your wedding day. I want to talk a few times- answer questions, offer suggestions and actually know you by the time your day rolls around. The more we connect, the better this whole experience will be- I promise.
I'm a notary public in the state of Maine with the ability to sign your marriage license. That means you can have anyone read your vows or you can skip the officiant all together and simply read your own words to each other because I'm all about keeping things easy and simple!
I CAPTURE DOWN-TO-EARTH COUPLES IN SIMPLE SETTINGS
with natural and heart-felt photography.
When I'm not getting teary-eyed over your wedding vows I'm taking care of of my two kiddos and they keep me pretty busy.
I haven't always been a wedding photographer- in fact I started out photographing families on the beach.
Believe it or not I used to be super scared of photographing weddings! Bride-zillas, over-the-top venues with extravagant ballrooms, and tuxedo clad waiters? That's just not me!
But then I had an ah-ha moment. What if there were couples like me who wanted to keep things down-to-earth? People who were more concerned about making their guests feel deeply loved than whether or not their napkins matched the invitations.
Turns out there are a lot of couples like that! I found my people and their weddings awoke a fire in my soul. So here I am now: "Wedding Photographer to the Chill People."
Seriously, I've experienced so much joy serving the couples who have leaned in to who they are, their relationship and the relationships they share with their family and friends.
It's amazing how real love shines through in that kind of enviornment and that's incredibly inspiring to be in the presence of.
I describe my work and style as:
Simple. Natural. Heartfelt.

Photographer who is like family
Liz was an absolute delight to work with! She was a like a member of our family and made the process of picking a photographer very easy. My husband and I are in love with our photos and couldn't be happier with the experience. She is approachable, kind and professional.Sent on 12/10/2019

Exactly what we hoped for...
We got an incredible gallery of photos. It was honestly exactly what we hoped for! The weather was very overcast, but Elizabeth used the light to her advantage and really made incredible photos out of a gloomy day! She also gave us great advice all along the way. We feel very fortunate to have found her and that she available on our wedding day! We highly recommend!

Love her energy and organization!
We are so thankful we had Liz as our photographer for our wedding out on Peaks Island. She was actually more than just our photographer, she provided us with general tips for our planning, such as a wedding day timeline, which we took and revised just a bit and made it our own. She was a voice of reason for us and provided great feedback on making the day our own. The communication via Zoom was great, she was able to understand what we wanted. The day of the ceremony we had no worriers that she wasn’t getting a picture we wanted, she helped us with the lead up to the ceremony to get all the getting ready and family shots done, then our couple shots, this freed us up to be with our friends and family after the ceremony. She was very organized and sent us sneak peak pics the next day, which was awesome to see some of her favs. The wedding book preparations were were as easy as they can be when you have 800 pictures to look at! We loved her energy and are so thankful for her being a part of our day!Sent on 12/24/2019
