The beauty of Maine is that there is so much variety when it comes to photography locations. It really makes it easy to make something special when it comes to your engagement photographs.

Engagement sessions are an opportunity to get a feel of what it is like to work with your wedding photographer, get a feel of what it is like to be in front of the camera, get used to showing some intimacy with your loved one with the presence of another person, and learn what really works for you and doesn’t. This way, when your big day comes, you will be super comfortable with a camera around and your photographer.

Here are the best places to get your Engagement Portraits taken in Maine that are unique:

The Coast:

It would be silly for me not to begin with what Maine is known for, beautiful coastlines. Between rocky shores and sandy beaches, your adventure will be picturesque. It doesn’t matter the weather.

            Check Out: Popham Beach, Reid State Park, Sand Beach (Acadia), Wolfe’s Neck State Park, Biddeford Pool, Kettle Cove, Marginal Way, Camp Ellis, Laudholm Farm, Cresent Beach State Park, Ferry Beach State Park

Carnival:

Whether you are shy or vibrant in nature, this option is perfect. Natural smiles with happen. Who doesn’t like to go on rides, eat lots of bad food and have your fiance’ win you a big stuffed animal?

            Check out: Fryburg Fair, Monmouth Fair, Topsham Fair, Windsor Fair, Cumberland Fair

Art Murals:

If you want a pop of color and some personality to your images, wall mural aka graffiti art is the way to go. Maine has these hidden gems throughout the state.

Check Out: Downtown Portland, Waterville, Lewiston

Ski Resorts:

I will be the first person to admit, I am super clumsy and have actually never learned how to ski/snowboard. But I know lots of people love it and I think it is badass. Adding adventure to your images with things you enjoy, only makes your images a million times more memorable and meaningful.

            Check Out: Lost Valley, Mt. Abram Resort, Sunday River, Sugarloaf, Saddleback Ski Area, Black Mountain, Shawnee Peak, Spruce Mountain

Breweries:

Cheers to this, right!? Maine is FULL of breweries! And I am sure the fiance’ wouldn’t mind to let loose with a nice cold beverage or two.

            Check Out: Baxter Brewing Co., Allagash Brewing Co., Battery Steele Brewing, Bissell Brothers, Cushnoc Brewing Co., Flight Deck Brewing, Grittys, Nonesuch River Brewing, Sebago Brewing Co., Shipyard

Forests:

Trees are as much a part of Maine as it’s famous coastline. Whether you like the sunlight hues peaking through the branches in the summer or fall, it won’t disappoint.

            Check Out: Gisland Farm/Maine Audobon Center, Hobbit Land/Vaughn Woods, Laudholm Farm, Acadia, Camden Hills, Wolfe’s Neck State Park, Robinson Woods Trail, Baxter State Park, Grafton Notch State Park, Reid State Park
