Acadia

Stories, tips, and, advice from our adventures.

Photo Tour of Acadia

We love blocking out a few hours and hitting up some of Acadia’s most photogenic locations with couples. During the height of the season, it’s key to have a designated driver. Meaning we don’t have to worry about parking eating up precious golden light time. And with our knowledge of the park, we have a

Acadia National Park Sunrise Photo Session

We met Isabelle & Noah in Acadia on their 2nd wedding anniversary, and photographed them at sunrise, rock climbing on Otter Cliffs. But as is sometimes the case with the island, as a result of thick fog the sun was blocked out until late morning. So we were excited for the second chance to wake up in the dark with them, down a few cups of coffee, and head in to the park for an adventure filled Acadia sunrise photo session!

Finding Your Private Proposal Spot in Acadia National Park

Finding a private proposal spot in Acadia National Park can be a real challenge. For years this spot was our family sunset location. We would scoot up here after dinner, armed with fleecy layers and flashlight, for the show. The beauty is that we always have this spot to ourselves. For decades. We’ve seen evenings where the water is completely still and reflecting orange and red. And we’ve seen stormy seas with skies moodier than our worst hangry moments.

Acadia Engagement Photos, Rock Climbing, Otter Cliffs, Maine

Many believe the path to love is the greatest adventure. Isabelle and Noah totally prove that the wedding is only just the beginning! Married two years ago, they were in Bar Harbor for a friend’s wedding. With each friend who gets married outside of their New York City home base they create a mini-vacation.
