A couple weeks ago I spent some time with Chantal and Mike for their Nubble Light engagement session in York, Maine. They rolled up in Mike’s awesome Rock Lobster Red Jeep and that was the moment I knew this session was going to kick some serious ass. It was a busy and beautiful Friday afternoon and I’m fairly certain everyone had the same idea to visit Nubble Light. The parking lot was packed and there were people fishing and exploring everywhere. After getting the lay of the land I decided to take Chantal and Mike down a path and climb over some rocks to see if we would be able to find a view of Nubble Light that would make it look as if we were the only people around. Sometimes the hustle and bustle of everyday life makes for great imagery but not when you’re in Maine. Not when you have some of the best coastlines the Northeast has to offer.
After successfully completing our mission I let Chantal and Mike kick back for a few minutes on the rocks while I explored a bit more. They nuzzled up next to each other and I’m not sure what they were saying but whatever it was had Chantal giggling. I let them hang out for a few more minutes before it was time for us to move on to the next location. As we were walking and talking on the way back to the car I started noticing some amazing reflections from the tide pools caught on the rocks. I quickly got back into photographer mode and asked them to walk by me and back towards the car, hoping to get something cool.
From Nubble Light we headed to Marginal Way to walk along the beach path. I brought my camera…they brought remote control Jeeps with custom license plates. So rad. After using those little buggers for a few photos on the beach I was inspired to incorporate Mike’s actual Jeep into something that would fit their personalities. So we took in the sunset, walked back to the parking lot and made one final photo before calling it a night and heading back home. An amazing end to an incredible session.
