Wedding venues are just places you rent where your family and friends can have dinner and a party. If you have a nice backyard, you already have such a place!
If you have the room for a tent (something like 100′ x 60′), you can rent a tent, tables, chairs, and everything you need for a wedding, and never need to leave home! Add a caterer and a bar service and you’re ready to go.
Of course, we recommend making your life easier, and getting a planner to help with the details! There are both wedding planners who will help you find all your vendors, choose colors, etc., and day-of wedding planners who will facilitate the day for you, so you can just enjoy the celebration!
Focus Photography has been helping Maine couples document their weddings since we opened our studio in Portland in 2005. We’re Maine wedding photographers, and we work throughout the state, but have a showroom at the Maine Mall in South Portland, and a studio in Westbrook.
We offer complete album collections, multiple photographers for your whole wedding day, smaller events with only 1 photographer, and intimate celebrations that only need a few hours of photography.
A few things you should know about us:
We believe weddings should be a Relaxed Experience. We’ve photographed hundreds of weddings, and have a system to help you have an easy, stress-free day.
Chaos Is Bad!
We’ll plan a photo timeline with you weeks before your wedding, so everyone will know where they’re supposed to be, and when. You’ll Have confidence, calmness and clarity, not chaos!
Laughter Is Good! As one our recent bride’s put it,
“Scott’s groomsmen couldn’t stop talking about how funny Will was when he worked with the guys. And these are tough guys.”
We’re Orientation Inclusive – It doesn’t matter to us if your spouse is a man, woman, or a martian.
Love is Love, after all.
And the martian thing would be pretty cool.

Thank you, and as Maine wedding photographers, we appreciate you having your backyard wedding in Maine.
