Adventures in Portland, ME

We have decided to add Photographing a Wedding in Portland, ME to our “Shaw Photography Bucket List.” This is our second time visiting Portland, ME and even though it rained 66% of the time we were there, we loved it even more than the first time. There is something so alluring about it.  Maybe it’s the walkability. or the sunrise. or the coast. or the portland headlight. or the friends we got to catch up with along the way. or the oh so delicious food. or the beer. Whatever it is, we want more! So if you, or anyone you know,  is getting married in Portland, ME, you know where to find us.   Read below to find our recommendations from both of our visits.

Sophie & Max | Portland, ME | Engagement & Wedding Photographers

Oh Portland, ME,  We now have 2 more reasons to love you so. After our travels to Boston we headed up to Portland, ME to visit a friend who was due with their first baby, (baby didn’t arrive while we were there, but we got to spend some time catching up with friends which was nice).   When we let our current client’s know we’d be on the road traveling, we were able to set up Sophie & Max’s engagement  as well which was a surprise bonus.  We met up with them on our last night of our stay for a lifestyle engagement session. We started in their apartment and moved to the streets of Portland, ME to finish their engagement session. Here is the previous post where we previewed the session.

Side note, we are head over heals in love with Portland, ME (this was our second time visiting). So if you are planning a wedding or engagement session there, please feel free to reach out to us. We’re waiving travel fees for 2015 weddings in the Portland, ME area.


  • Sophie Nelson - Thanks guys! Portland loves you!
