Willard Beach and Old Port engagement session of Maggie and Brian

by whitney

"Less good-byes makes it easier," is what Brian said about his merchant marine schedule of one month on and one month off at home, compared to two weeks on and two weeks off.  A valid point, spoken like a true romantic.  Brian met Maggie in college when both of these native Mainers attended Maine Maritime Academy in Castine.  Brian is currently working out of New Orleans, so their engagement session was scheduled during his break.  They were hopeful for a snowy shoot, but instead got some wintry wind with some beautiful sun.  We all agreed, this was still enjoyable despite the lack of snow.  The decorative lights around downtown Portland were on their list of places for us to hit during our shoot and provided plenty of holiday season charm.  These two are marrying next September in Brooklin, Maine, where Maggie's family has some cottages; their reception will be in nearby Blue Hill.  In anticipation of their big day, they added a lock with their wedding date to the Love Locks Fence on Commercial Street.  We even got to visit the little grassy knoll that overlooks Willard Beach for some photos, which is where Brian proposed to Maggie in October with a surprise picnic.  They bought their house near the beach this summer, so it was extra meaningful to photograph these two lovebirds in so many different places during our session that are so meaningful to them. 

Maggie and Brian, congratulations on your engagement and upcoming wedding!  Thanks for letting me spend some time with you -- I had a blast!
