I first met Meredith on my wedding day, the main photographer we had hired was from out-of-state and she brought along Meredith as a second shooter – BEST THING EVER! It has been over a year now and we still exchange emails on a weekly, if not daily basis. I think it is impossible for someone to meet her and not immediately understand how passionate she is about her work, and how genuine she is as a person. She is a very talented photographer, and I think it speaks volumes about both her and her work, that so many of her clients turn into friends. If you are looking for a photographer, whether it be for a wedding, life in general, or to document a furry member of your family, make sure you check her out. I have Meredith to thank for a number of the photos on the new site!
What prompted you to start your business? Was there a major turning point for you?
I began my business in March of 2009, when I opened my first storefront studio, just down the street from where I live now. I shoot both weddings & portraits, focusing on the documentation of life’s unlimited connections. There was no turning point for me- it was simply a desire to begin pursuing a lifelong passion.
Where do you find your inspiration?
I'm inspired by the human connection, and our relationships with those who we love. Food & design blogs are also a big source of inspiration for me!
What is your favorite part about your job?
My favorite part, above all, is getting to know my clients. Since beginning & unlimited in 2009, so many kind families & couples have invited me into their lives with my camera, letting me document their unique relationships; doing so is one of the most fulfilling & rewarding experiences. Working in the medium of photography and being able to think creatively on a daily basis is, of course, another favorite!
What is your typical process?
I do my best to get to know my clients as best I can ahead of time. I believe this makes everyone a bit more relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera, and helps to create beautiful, natural moments. After any shoot or wedding, I come home and backup the photos (in three places!) and begin my editing & post-processing work on my iMac. I try to post a few of my favorite photos from each shoot/wedding on my blog as soon as possible, and within a few weeks, the photos are uploaded onto my proofing site for clients to share with their family & friends. I always try to send a thank you note with my lovely 4th&Folded stationery afterwards too!
(this is her actual studio, isn't it gorgeous?!)
Do you have an online shop or website?
Yes! My blog, which hosts my portfolio as well is: www.andunlimited.com
Tell us about yourself! Where are you from? What do you like to do? Etc.
I live in a little beach neighborhood in South Portland, Maine with my boyfriend, Michael, and our black lab, Orvis. My boyfriend, Michael, and I are relatively new to Maine, as we moved here two years ago after graduating from college. Having both grown up in North Carolina, we were anxious for a change. We've found that the overall lifestyle in Maine suits us quite well, and right now, I cannot imagine us living anywhere else!
Besides taking photographs, I love to laugh, read, and spend time outside.
What are two fun facts about yourself that others may not know?
I am totally addicted to Odwalla Chocolate Milk and I have the shortest movie memory of anyone in existence.
Aren't her photos fantastic? If you are in need of a photographer, I cannot recommend her enough! Make sure you check out her site for more drool enducing photos!
