Our photographer is Michele Stapleton. She’s based in Brunswick, and I know she travels.

Bernard C Meyers is also very talented. He’s in Portland and willing to travel, as well!

I think I would suggest that you start with Maine-based photographers as those in Boston would probably charge quite a bit to travel up to MDI – if your username indicates that’s where the wedding will be!

I second Justine Johnson, she is amazing. We used her for e-photos two weeks ago and I moved my wedding date ahead two days in order to accomdate her schedule. She is laid back. Very kind. Makes the process as comfortable and natural as being photographed is, at least for us. I am getting the disk in the mail this week. I have attached the teaser she sent the SAME day of our shoot. It became obvious once we saw the proofs that I ruined nearly every picture laughing at FI.

We are using two photographers which are both friends of my family. http://www.zedarean.com/zedarean/Welcome.html          He takes amazing pictures, is excellently priced and will do what you want.

 

@emmalina: My FI’s sister and brother actually had Bernard take pictures for their weddings, and he did an ok job for his sister’s wedding. But for his brother’s that was in 2008 he did a horrible job, they were only given one picture of the bride and groom together at the wedding. Then on one of the few of them together from the reception he photoedited a picture of them and made the groom look horrible.

We’re using Samantha Warren of Samantha Warren Weddings.  We were extremely happy with our e-pics, and we can’t wait to see what she does with our wedding in two weeks!  And she’s SUPER nice on top of it all!

I just contracted with Classic Photography, the company is based out of Boston but they have offices throughout New England. I am actually going through the Auburn, ME location. The prices could not be beat, and they have a variety of photographers to choose from. I chose Jim to do my photography on 9.10.11 and will be having my engagement pictures done shortly. The major perk of using Classic Photography is that they are also associated with tuxedo rental, and if you book a photography package, you get a significant discount on tuxedo rental.

We used Alexandra Daley-Clark (classicmaineweddings.com) and she is amazing.

Very easy to work with, very responsive and the photos speak for themselves.
She only does a limited number of weddings per year (15 I think?), and she was just featured a couple of months ago as the featured wedding in the NYT Sunday featured wedding section, so I imagine she will book up fast for next summer – her contact info is on her website.

Here’s a couple shots from our 08/28 wedding on Peaks Island:

And a couple from our e-pics:

We used Greg L. Strom and were very pleased.  His prices were reasonable, he stayed for as many hours as we wanted without any price change, and he took over 1400 photos!  It was great!
