Aug 23, 2011 | Engagements

I’ve been away for a mini vacation up in Maine (oh, how I love that place!) and while I was there I was thrilled to be able to meet up with Amanda and Matt and their utterly awesome (and super tiny) doggy Toby for some sun-soaked beach engagement photos.ย  Amanda and her family have been vacationing in Old Orchard Beach since she was little, so it was a great place to take their engagement photos.ย  We started out in the middle of the madness, on the part of the beach in town … we found a little solitude under the boardwalk:

I’m all about the silly ice-cream-eating pictures … and so, apparently, are Matt and Amanda. ๐Ÿ™‚

For the shot above, I asked, “who’s the leader?” – Amanda and Matt both pointed immediately at Amanda. Love it!

We wanted to get some gorgeous beach engagement photos up at the other end of Old Orchard where Amanda’s family were staying … while they were making a quick clothing change, I grabbed a couple of photos of Chico the chihuahua. He’s her mom’s now, but he used to be Amanda’s doggy. And don’t be fooled by that adorable little face; I’ve heard he’s a bit of a menace underneath!

We took Toby (the ultra friendly Yorkie) for a walk on the beach. The light was still crazy bright out, but I love these shots …

These two are too cute. ๐Ÿ™‚

One of the things I love most about Matt and Amanda is how easy they are, and how much they laugh together. It was pretty much non-stop laughter all afternoon … perfect.

Thank you all for the warm welcome, and to Matt and Amanda for a very fun session! I’m so happy we get to do it all again back in Boston too. ๐Ÿ™‚
