French's Point is a wedding venue located on a private peninsula in mid-coast Maine with 15 acres between two properties, Beach Rose Farm and the Estate. The Estate offers a commanding 280-degree, unobstructed view of the Atlantic Ocean and Penobscot Bay. Beach Rose Farm, which can house up to 30 people at a time, is a great complement to the property for weddings.
I have been working with the management team there for some time as a consultant. One of the marketing campaigns that we run is a Stay and Tour, where engaged couples can stay at the Beach Rose Farm property and get a tour of the Estate while they are in the area. We have added to that concept by running promotions where couples not only get to stay and tour, but also get an engagement session shot by yours truly. It is a great opportunity to introduce the amazing property to newly engaged couples and also have them leave with images of the weekend. We are able to have the run of the property, so from headshots indoors, to the front lawn, to the Beach Rose Farm to walking on the private beach, the photo opportunities are plentiful. The backdrops are great, from the green shingles of the building to scenic vistas.
The engagement session promotions are so popular they are becoming a regular happening, check out French's Point blog for details of the next one if you or someone you know might be interested. The couples we have hosted come from all over- native Mainers to true destination clientele who have traveled great distances for the weekends. The staff at French's Point is second to none when it comes to pulling off weddings and events, every couple I have worked with in the shoots has been quite impressed!
