oh my my my!!!! : mat and ash photography update

untitled_1026

holy wow, wow, wow!!! if you are reading this you have reached our blog!

I must apologize to those of you that have reached this neglected blog and are seeing the last post is from January of 2016.

I’m happy to say this has been one of the best years I’ve ever been blessed with in business. The couples, locations, vendors, so many beautiful people and locations I’ve been. One of the issues I’ve had with this blog is the presentation, so at this point you could definitely say that this is heavily under construction. I’m leaving it up so you can view all the beautiful past sessions we have had, but for now and most recent work I suggest you check out our [instagram by clicking here! @matandash]

I’ll be back in a couple weeks to start the overhaul of this blog to make sure it’s up to our website’s standards! once it is I’ll be updating it with every session I had this year! so prepare to drool with me as we get to re-live it all over again!

xoxo, always

featured wedding : john + sara | maine wedding photography

as i was going through several archives updating our website, i found quite a few weddings that still spoke to me, maybe even our favorites over the years… so what i’ve decided to do is feature a few of these weddings on our blog. basically a blast from the past!

i decided to start with john + sara’s wedding from 2012. a southern maine intimate wedding.  we traveled to the adorable little town of Cape Neddick to join John & Sara as they said their I do’s on one of the most beautiful September days! John & Sarah’s day was full of romance and love as they danced their night away surrounded by their loved ones. <3

mat & ash photography : best of 2015

Wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a SAFE and fabulous new year! 2016 is going to be so wonderful. I can feel it in my bones.

I’m extremely pleased and impressed with what I’ve been able to accomplish in 2015. I honestly never thought I would get through it, but I’ve had the upmost support and the most dear clients that I’ve been blessed to work with. I can’t thank you all enough for the continuous support moving forward.

I’m gonna make Ash proud. I’m gonna do it, thrive, and grow, and continue to feel her with me every step of the way.

New website is in development! It needs a much needed face lift. Blog comes next along with much more posting I need to finish for 2015.

Nonetheless, everyone have an amazing end to your 2015, and cheers to this new year with new, and exciting things to come!! xoxo M&A

Here’s a blog post of the most amazing people and images i’ve been able to create in 2015. thank you all for being apart of it <3

justin, laura, + morgan : maine family photography

Little something extra special I shot recently before the holidays. This family is one of the most amazing families I’ve ever had the pleasure of being able to document such special memories in someone’s lives! (Okay sure that is a little biased, since I’ve been able to document so much with this family.) From engagement photos to their wedding! The maternity photos, to their new family… so blessed to have the opportunity to have such a career, and to witness the beautiful events and creations in everyone’s lives, including this little angel Morgan! <3

Happy Holidays to everyone, incuding the Spencer’s! xo

justin + laura : maine maternity photography

I reached out this year to a past bride Laura, who Ashley + I shot had the grand pleasure of shooting their engagement photos, as well as their beautiful wedding on Peaks Island! I was interested in shooting this couple again because their wedding was one that Ashley, and I held close to our hearts. Laura instantly agreed, but yet she had a surprise! She was pregnant!!!! Justin + Laura are expecting their first baby girl here in November, and I couldn’t be more excited for them!!!!!! What other way to celebrate than with a maternity session! Now THIS is how you shoot a sunset session. I couldn’t help but crying (okay I’m a little emotional.) the entire way home, I felt Ashley everywhere, we all did. It was so nice to catch up with this couple and look back at all the memories we shared together!

Congratulations to Justin + Laura, and welcoming Morgan to the world as of 10/30!

Enjoy! <3
