The wedding for Peter & Gabriela was truly a night to remember. The wedding was held at the beautiful Barn at Walnut Hill in North Yarmouth. The couple went to Colby College and returned to Maine to wed. Everything was decorated with care and beauty by Lani Toscano and her team. Outside in the yard, where Lucy was setup for play, had all the amenities for a good celebration. They had a tent up for Maine Mixologists to pour cocktails and Fire & Co. had chicken roasting over an open flame. The aromas alone made your mouth water! But right as the ceremony was to begin the weather had a change in plans.... It started to rain!!! Everybody waited hoping the rain would pass, but the rain was here to stay and the ceremony was held inside the barn. Once Gabriela and Peter made their "I Do's" the cocktail hour began and so did the fun. The guests were great in the camper, and many were in the media industry where the creativity was put to the test. The addition of Katie Perry's "Left Shark" by their request was hilarious. The weather calmed down and everybody celebrated to commemorate their love. Congratulations Gabriela and Peter! And thanks for having us be a part of your special day.
On a gorgeous Friday afternoon, the whole family hooked up Lucy and headed downeast to Northeast Harbor for an exciting wedding on Mount Desert Island. Emily and Sam created a beautiful event with many homemade decorations. Using their many talents and creativity, the venue looked amazing and having Lucy as an addition, made the celebration that much more special. We setup shop the day before, so we could go adventure Cadillac Mountain and Bar Harbor. The views were amazing and Bar Harbor was a lot of fun to just walk around an explore. Boom! It's wedding day. As the ceremony was at a different location I waited for the guests to arrive for cocktail hour. The crowd had a ball getting their photos taken and putting on all the props that were in Lucy. The barnboard backdrop complimented an accent wall Sam had made that looked quite similar. The party ran late into the night and Emily told me the next day that she could do it all over again. Thank you so much Emily and Sam for having us at your wedding and I hope you will cherish these photos for years to come.

The Cape Elizabeth Prom took place at the Portland Club in Portland, Maine, it had been a while since I had been in there and forgotten who interesting a place it is. The building feels as if it has just been preserved, and that you've stepped back in time. The students real showed their spirit and creativity in the open air photobooth, where laughs and smiles emitted from their youthful faces. Personally, the highlight for me was when two kids played doubles piano, just eloquently jamming. Between the dancing and the photobooth , the building was alive. Surely they will remember their High School prom!
To kick off the first wedding of the season, we were fortunate enough to stay right in Freeport to celebrate the marriage of Kate and David. Their wedding took place in Kate's parents backyard where centered in the middle was a gigantic beautiful tent, one of Fire & Co's vintage culinary trucks and Lucy- the camper. Although the weather wasn't most ideal, we all made the best of the sprinkling weather, for there was celebrating to do! Everything was beautifully orchestrated; the food, the music, and the camper completed the celebration of these two love birds. Congrats Kate and David, and thank you for letting us celebrate your special day with you.
Day two of a double header weekend, we hauled Lucy down to Bedford, New Hampshire for Chris and Tori's wedding. The wedding was held at the Bedford Village Inn, a very cute venue, with all that New England charm. We arrived and set up shop near the back patio, which was lit with lanterns and a fire pit. After the ceremony and the newly weds had made their vows, the celebration began with your traditional cocktail hours. Guests came in and out capturing their evening, with or without props, just to document their evening and to contribute to the scrap book. The guests would receive a strip for themselves and one for the scrap book, where they could sign their name or leave a message for the bride and groom. The camper echoed with laughter and everyone left with a larger smile on their face. It brings much joy to give people such a youthful experience in it's simplest form. Who doesn't love dressing up in costumes and acting silly. It's those simple things that can bring such happiness. Thanks Tori and Chris for having us to your wedding, and we wish you all the best.
Boy were we busy this weekend! We had a double header of weddings and our first stop was up to Beech Hill Barn in Beautiful Pittston, Maine. The view at Beech Hill Barn is amazing. The view of the mountains and the foliage seems endless. I can only imagine what it looks like with each season. It truly is one of the most beautiful settings for a wedding ceremony. Lucy was positioned next to the barn and across from Fire and Company's trucks providing food and beverages. Once the ceremony had completed and the vows were made, the guests and newly weds ventured up the hillto the barn for cocktails and lawn games. As most weddings do, many people peeked in like a curious, shy cat; yet not quite ready to commit. We just give them time, they always come in by the end of the night. The night was mixed with music provided by Soul Purpose, dancing, celebrating and the youthfulness that camper brings out in all. There never was a dull moment when everything is set up so perfectly. The gang here showed some true talent with their props and poses, where their character shined. Thanks Zia and Adam for including us in your celebration. It was a blast entertaining and documenting your crew!!!
Weddings are the perfect opportunities for families to get together, and for this wedding, absolutely. The Barn at Flanagan Farm was the perfect setting to celebrate the love between two people. The bride and groom are both from Poland and they continued to celebrate with all the wedding traditions from back home, and from what I witnessed was a rambunctious time. Whether in the barn, out in the yard, or in the camper- all the guests were smiling, dancing, and laughing. The children there, immediately were drawn to the photo camper. They started off posing like most do, but soon afterwards they had become my little helpers. They helped clean up props, assist in dressing up the guests, and swatting mosquitoes whenever they flew in. It was nice to include these little helpers, and allow them the opportunity to feel special. But the novelty ran out and they went and played soccer out in the fields. I really can't blame them. The guests really knew how to celebrate, the barn was a ripping and a roaring, and so was the camper. When you can't stop laughing due to the guests, you know you're doing something right. The white gold rose backdrop added a little sophistication while everyone acted a little unsophisticated. The option was there for a nice classy photo, rarely does it happen though. Large groups of people crammed themselves in, really reveling how close they really are. You can really find out how close people are when you shove 10, 15, or 20 people into a camper to take photos. It may sound silly, but when you see it, it's a beautiful thing. Thank you Beata and Andrzej for including us on your wedding day. It was truly a beautiful celebration.
When it comes to weddings, this was the wedding that was meant for us! Bridget and Ganesh orchestrated the perfect wedding garnished with SEVEN Volkswagen buses in the field of the Barn at Flanagan Farm!!! So, when we pulled in with the camper, we just added to the caravan of fun. For their wedding, we built a new backdrop, to keep this wedding’s aesthetic consistent. We built a barnboard backdrop within the camper to look the part of the barn wedding. Although quite heavy, it looks as if you’re in a traditional Maine barn. We set up the camper between the two barns and a little bit after we were up and running the guests arrived. Several guests peered in before the wedding with excitement, with just enough patience to wait until after the ceremony. From where the camper sat, the ceremony sounded beautiful with music and celebration out in the wooded ceremony location.
Everyone flooded out of the trees with smiles toward the Sperry tent for cocktail hour. Many of the guests quickly jumped in the camper to get their photos taken and promptly telling others to get in due to how fun it is. Oh, and how fun it was. The props were flying and the photo strips were too, quickly filling up the scrapbook littered with messages of love for the new married couple. Congratulations Bridget & Ganesh, what a beautiful wedding you had!!!

These are the days of summer! And on this gorgeous day we traveled down to York, Maine to the York Harbor Inn where we were a part of a beautiful wedding for Lindsay and Matt. The view of the Maine coast was unreal, and the setting was perfect, with the beach right below. The guests had just entered the ceremony when we pulled in and were surprised to see what was set up outside when they came out for the reception. As most weddings do, they start off cute and innocent in the camper and progress into a hilarious and outrageous time. The gold sequin back drop added some flash to the photos and got the guests excited. The props were in full use and the camper consistently had large groups creatively putting them to use. The line quickly grew as everyone wanted their chance to get in front of the camera. Guests of all ages came in and out, having a great time dressing up and experiencing the magic of Lucy! From newborns to grandparents, everyone enjoyed the camper, they came in smiling and left with bigger smiles, laughs, and a copy of their own photos to take home. The guest book flowed with photo strips and messages for the bride and groom to look at later. One can only imagine what that book contains. The crew here really shined with creativity, where some even brought the centerpieces in as props. It's great to see people thinking outside the box to add to the excitement. Congratulations to Lindsay and Matt on saying "I Do" and celebrating with friends and family who traveled near and far!
What a summer it has been! We are working on getting these journal posts out! We thought we would start with our most recent Photo Camper event the marriage of Julia and Ian at Peaks Island Lions Club! It was the week of the Fourth of July so we decked out the camper with American Flags just as the couple did in the reception hall. Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. Pegg!

This was such a special wedding because Cindy was so excited about the camper and based her colors around Lucy. Additionally it was the first wedding held at The Barn at Kennebunks. What a way to kick off 2017.
We got to ring in the new year to celebrate the marriage of a wonderful couple and an incredible team. Caroline & Ben are avid boat and snow lovers to a NYE wedding on Portland harbor was the perfect fit for them.
Sandy and her team at Bea & Company, she really is the bee's knees, 58 Fore Street , The Event Lighting Pros, Flora Fauna (who dressed up Lucy beautifully) Kitchen Chicks were just to name a few we can wait to see the photos from Samantha Appleton she's a dream! But here are a few from us before the wedding started @ Maine Tinker Photography . Happy New Year and cheers to an incredible 2017.

I met Sable and Aaren last year a few days before christmas last year for their engagement photos seen here. I instantly fell in love with this super fun loving couple. As their wedding approached I was super excited to see them again and was blown away by the details Sable and her mom put into the wedding. Their ceremony was the most memorable part for me, a huge choir sang “All You Need is Love” it was so overpoweringly beautiful, even more meaningful for the couple who are Opera singers in Kansas City. Their ceremony ended with a foot bath which was a first for me, but such a lovely gesture. We quickly scooted over for a power portrait session at Maine Audubon, and then danced the night away back at Woodford Church. There were tons of heartfelt speeches, The Maine Photo Camper fun along with lots of dancing and singing to their friends band. You can see their whole blog post here from Maine Tinker Photography
Thank you so much for allowing us to capture you day, it is always wonderful meeting more wonderful people in this world.
