East Coast Wedding in Buxton, Maine

By, October 24, 2013

The most Northeastern destination of our True Tour was up to Portland, Maine for the beautiful wedding of Colleen and Russell.  This wonderful couple chose to get married at The Barn at Flanagan Farm after visiting Maine for vacation and falling in love with the area.  The unique venue was just a short drive outside of Portland in the countryside of Buxton, Maine.  The changing of the fall leaves was just starting to make its way to Maine, and we were able to capture hints of the colors out and around the property.

The ceremony was tucked away and surrounded by pine trees, creating a very intimate and peaceful location to tie the knot.

The interior of the farmhouse was light and airy with pops of color, such as the blue wallpaper behind Colleen, above, and the beautiful coral and pinks in the bridal suite, below.

Attached to the farmhouse was the rustic yet refined barn.  Russell and his men looked dignified in the loft, above the event space, which was surrounded by unique decor.

The property around Flanagan Farm lent itself to beautiful and classic photos of the bride and groom, as well as the rest of the bridal party.  Within close vicinity, there was dense forest, lush prairie and a floral garden-scape.

Every farm has to have a barn :)  I would call this one in particular more of a couture barn.  During the dinner reception, sheer white draping and accent lighting provided a very elegant and cozy feeling for guests.

What a good looking group of people!  Collen and Russel, it was our pleasure to photograph your special day!  Cheers to the beginning of a wonderful life together :)

Leaping Into Marriage | Catelynn and Eddie | June 14, 2013

By, June 14, 2013

We love working with couples who are willing to have a little fun with photography on their wedding day. Catelynn and Eddie were one of those couples, and we felt it only right to feature them in our Photo of the Week.

There’s no question that once vows have been exchanged, the bride and groom experience a sense of relief that allows them to embrace the celebration. According to Aaron Feldman, CEO and Owner of True Photography, this sense of relief comes across in the photography. He says, “my favorite part of photographing a wedding is of the bride and groom right after the ceremony. They’re super happy and their adrenaline is flowing!”

The adrenaline is certainly flowing in the image below. Eddie looks like he’s leaping into a future of wedded bliss!

Balboa Park Wedding at Saint Francis Chapel and The Prado

By, June 15, 2012

At Saint Francis Chapel and the San Diego Museum of Man, we love helping couples create a memorable experience that they can share with their loved ones for the rest of their lives.

We were honored to be a part of Jessica and Francis’ Balboa Park wedding.  This theatrical bride and groom became husband and wife at the Saint Francis Chapel. After the ceremony, the wedding commenced a few hundred yards away at The Prado!

My favorite moment of the day was watching the groom’s face as the bride stepped into the Chapel. Because we have a secluded bridal suite, it’s truly a surprise for the groom when she enters.

The affection shared between Jessica and her niece in this quiet moment just after the ceremony is beautiful.

Balboa Park at night can be breathtaking! This photo captures Saint Francis Chapel in the background and looks like a page out of a fairytale book! I love the dramatic lighting, and the contrast of Jessica’s dress with the rich sky.

The smile on Jessica’s face in this photo says it all – it conveys everything a newly-married bride should feel!
