Zach & Sarah + Wedding http://melissaraephoto.com/blog/2017/4/zach-sarah-wedding Oct 15, 2010 ~ Laudholm Farm, Wells, Maine

I was fortunate enough to be the second shooter for this most incredible wedding with my friend and fellow photog, Gwyn. Please check out her site to see some amazing photos. Having very recently jumped into making photography my business and not just my passion, I was more than a little nervous to be shooting this wedding, but both Gwyn and Zach & Sarah made it a breeze! Zach and Sarah were not only really photogenic and comfortable in front of the camera, they were just FUN. I wanted so badly to be the “really cool girl they couldn’t help but befriend ’cause my witty banter made them realize how hilarious I was”. Since I don’t remember actually saying anything funny or witty, and it was their wedding day and they were pretty focused on each other, I’m pretty sure they didn’t think that. But how I wish they did cause they are just that kind of couple you want to hang with and are probably the life of the party wherever they go.

They got married at the most beautiful location, Laudholm Farm in Wells, Maine. It was quite the treat for me to see, having never been to New England in the fall before. Let’s just say it is breathtaking. No other words describe it. They pretty much had the wedding I would have if I could get married all over again, so it was super fun to get to photograph it. I mainly followed Gwyn around for the before wedding shots and marveled at how beautiful the bride, groom and locations were. Vibrant Fall Colors? Check. Cool Old Barn with hanging lanterns? Check. Beachfront Ocean steps away? Check. Like I said, DREAM wedding. Here are a few images I got as the second shooter for this beautiful day.

Seth & Megan + Wedding in RMNP http://melissaraephoto.com/blog/2017/4/seth-megan-wedding-in-rmnp  

June 4, 2011~Rocky Mountain National Park, Estes Park, CO

Seth and Megan chose Rocky Mountain National Park in Estes Park, CO to tie the knot.  It was small and intimate but SO much fun.  We essentially got to spend the day exploring a beautiful park with amazing views.  Pretty much the best wedding backdrop you can ask for. They were willing to try a lot of fun ideas, and we had a blast the entire day. Here are a few of my favorite shots:
