Abby and Kenny were married at the end of August on a beautiful coastal Saturday in Southwest Harbor. Sun kissed rays of light were everywhere that day, adding something a little extra magical to an already special day. The soft, ocean themed details were the perfect touch considering that the event was held, literally, on top of the ocean at Abby’s father’s boat building yard. Here a few of my favorites from the day.

1,000 of anything is a large amount. 1,000 homes, 1,000 cars, 1,000 elephants. Even smaller still, 1,000 M&M’s could seem insurmountable (however my 3 and a half year-old would decidely be up for the challenge.) So 1,000 LIKES on Facebook is a pretty neat thing. Those are quite a few people who have decided that a little Anne Schmidt Photography in their timelines would be a good thing. So I would like to say THANK YOU. Not only to the Facebook-ers, but those who follow my escapades on Twitter, and to those who put up with the random, yet fun Instagrams and to those anywhere who take time out of their day to support and help promote what I do. I am truly blessed to continue this journey of capturing lifes best moments forever in a photo. I would be thrilled if you all kept these places bookmarked and maybe share a link or two!

Thank you!



Carly and Craig were married this past Saturday at Craig’s family home near Belgrade Lake. We started the day with some lovely portraits and a first look at their lakeside camp. Carly and Craig are huge dog lovers, so their babies Jack, Diane and Honey were not left out of any “family” portrait. The day couldn’t have been more beautiful and tasty thanks to the amazing work of Sweetest Thing Weddings and Swan’s Way Catering. These ladies and their fabulous teams hit a tented backyard wedding home run with this event. Enjoy this little sneak peek! Full post to come soon.
