Hey there! I'm so glad you're here! I'm Monica Brown, a wedding photographer from Indianapolis who loves to celebrate couples & photographers. I hope you enjoy browsing through recent work, advice for brides & photographers, and taking a peek into our personal life!
Since marrying into the Brown family, this will be my third trip to Maine with them which is SO fun! The first one was right after we got married in 2016 (literally 1 weeks after we got home from our honeymoon haha) and the second time in 2018. Each trip has felt different but this one was especially fun because we had baby Nora in tow! We did really missed Drew’s brother JT who has been in Montenegro this past year!!
Due to COVID, we haven’t seen Drew’s grandparents much at all the last year so time all together was definitely the biggest highlight!! We had LOTS to celebrate that week as Drew turned 27, Addie, turned 21, Justin turned 25, Drew and I celebrated 5 years of marriage and Mark & Diane celebrated 30 years (end of May). Doing my “virtual scrapbook” as I love to share our life and travel recommendations with ya!
If you’re ever traveling to Bar Harbor specifically, here’s some recommendations from this we did this time but you check out my first and second Maine posts for more!
-Kayaking in the ocean and getting to see all sorts of wild life (like seals & bald eagles). We highly recommend using Maine State Sea Kayak
-Hiking Bee Hive
-Climbing on rocks from Sand Beach to Thunder Hole Rocks
-Bass Harbor Lighthouse at sunset
-Shopping in Bar Harbor
-San Bar walk with low tide in Bar Harbor
-Jordan Pond House (they have amazing popovers + lemonade!)
-West Street Restaurant for a nice dinner (we did this as a joint birthday/anniversaries dinner celebration!)
Until next time friends!
