Down-To-Earth, Rooted In Connection.
Photography for the couple seeking deeper meaning on their wedding day.
How many times have you heard someone say:
"My wedding was so stressful!"
"If I could do it all over again, I'd do it differently."
"I never had a chance to enjoy myself."
Many in the wedding industry believe that it's normal and even necessary to host an elaborate, overly orchestrated event that's likely going to leave you feeling stressed out, exhausted and disconnected.
I know for a fact that weddings can be different, in fact I believe so strongly in this that I wrote a book about it!
It's OKAY to have a wedding your way and
I'm here to help you make that happen all while delivering
beautiful photography that tells your wedding story.
Planning an intimate wedding?
I'm here to help!
Simply Wed offers grounded advice for couples seeking a different kind of wedding day. It's filled with valuable tips for planning and executing a "less is more" event that will nurture the relationships you share with your partner, friends, and family.
Here's How I Help You Connect With Each Other On Your Wedding Day.
I let your event unfold naturally. I'm not going to stage every moment or drag you through hours of stylized shooting. I want you to enjoy and be present on your wedding day.
As a minimalist, I carry only the essentials. I'm a "fly on the wall" not the paparazzi with second and third shooters, theatrical lighting and special effects. I want your pictures to look like YOUR wedding day.
I'm passionate about intimate weddings. I'll help you through each step of the planning process with a focus on making it your own.
I'm a notary public in the state of Maine with the ability to sign your marriage license. That means you can have anyone read your vows or you can skip the officiant all together and simply read your own words to each other because I'm all about keeping things easy and simple!

"Liz is the best decision I made on my wedding day besides my husband. We had a 50-person wedding on an island in Maine. Above and beyond her beautiful photography, Liz was a wonderful presence at our wedding, she made everything so easy, and she had the ability to be everywhere at once, but never once in the way.
Adam + Hannah
"We are so glad we hired Liz as our wedding photographer! She was wonderful to work with, so flexible and she brought such a calm and confident vibe to our day. We love the photographs! They perfectly capture the happiness of our day and her natural style was perfect for our wedding."
Dawn + Joe
"Liz is a naturally happy person and was so pleasant to be around. She made us feel so comfortable and was really invested in our story. She took our story, and documented it. She gave us back this gift that we can not only have for ourselves but for our kids and grandkids and their kids too. Thank you Liz. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you."
I haven't always been a wedding photographer- in fact I started out photographing families on the beach.
Believe it or not I used to be super scared of photographing weddings!
Bride-zillas, over-the-top venues with extravagant ballrooms, and tuxedo clad waiters? That's just not me!
But then I had an ah-ha moment. What if there were couples like me who wanted to keep things down-to-earth? People who were more concerned about making their guests feel deeply loved than whether or not their napkins matched the invitations.
Turns out there are a lot of couples like that! I found my people and their weddings awoke a fire in my soul. So here I am now: "Wedding Photographer to the Chill People."
I experience so much joy serving couples who lean in to who they are, their partnership and the relationships they share with family and friends.
It's amazing how real love shines through in that kind of enviornment and that's incredibly inspiring to be in the presence of.
