Here in Maine we got the most beautiful dusting of snow the other day. The trees were heavy with snow and the sun broke through the clouds. There is something that has always felt magical to me about fresh snow or snowflakes in general, and I was reminded of a snowy couples session from all the way back in December of 2018.

Olivia & Brendan had just gotten the cutest puppy (who was a total model, by the way), and were really excited about documenting their little family and were hoping for that soft, even glow of a Maine sunset. However, 2018 was a winter to note because of snowstorm after snowstorm! Olivia & Brendan’s session was graced with that same fate, which added the sweetest touch to their couple gallery. So if you’re looking for winter engagement inspiration at a Christmas tree farm, or just some adorable love, you’re in the right place.

Fast forward to 2020, and these cuties are ENGAGED. I am so stinkin’ excited to capture Brendan & Olivia’s wedding film and can’t wait to see what magic that day brings them.

Nestled just to the east of the Napa River, this beautiful resort is home to a variety of modern farmhouse-inspired suites and bungalows, intermixed through the grape vines. Guests enjoy the privacy of their own lodgings with the ease of a weekend together, making this spot an ideal home base for a weekend of festivities. Accessible from three airports, Oakland, San Francisco, and Sacramento, Stanly Ranch is ideal for relaxed destination weddings.

As a wedding photographer, I am asked over and over how much film I shot at weddings, etc. Short answer? I wasn’t. But now I think this is a small joy I’ll continue granting myself.
