St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church


My very first Samoset wedding where the ceremony was off site.  Brendan and Emily were married at the beautiful St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church in Camden, Maine.

I had the opportunity to document their rehearsal dinner and meet their friends and family.  I LOVED this group and had a wonderful weekend photographing them!

I received a very nice bottle of wine and a thank you note from Brendan and Emily.  Here is a snippet of their thank you note:

“Thank you so much for your beautiful photography.  You are truly amazing being able to take two non-photogenic people and make them look great.  We have also appreciated how fun and easy you have made things for us!”

Truly, it was my pleasure.  Doing what I love for wonderful people is a gift in my life.  Here is the wedding story of Brendan and Emily . . .
