As a food photographer I shoot food, product and packaging but on occasion an opportunity arises that I’ll be hired as a second photographer for a wedding. That was my day yesterday. A nice change of pace, and a jump start into the busy season.
The wedding and reception took place in Portland, Maine at one of the venues at 58 Fore Street, at The Portland Company marine complex. The event space was stunningly rustic but romantic with exposed blue tinged brick, high ceilings, wrought iron beams, oh, and a beautiful view of the harbor. Industrial meets elegance is the best way to describe it.
The setting for the actual wedding was outside on the banks of the harbor on the Eastern Promenade and the bride and groom arrived to awaiting guests on the old Maine Narrow Gauge railroad which, in itself, is a fun time for a photographer. It was a beautiful day with patchy clouds and slightly overcast which is the perfect diffusion for eliminating those harsh shadows. What a fantastic way to spend a day in Portland, Maine. Stay tuned for a few images..I don’t publish every event I shoot on my website so If you’d like to see more of my weddings, including some images of my first Italian wedding in Rome, Italy, and other non food industry events, here is the link to those images.
