My name is Josh Atticks and I am a Portland, Maine based wedding photographer specializing in Maine weddings from coastal beach weddings, resort weddings to barn weddings. Photographing my first wedding in 2006 I have since photographed hundreds of couples and have come to be known for my fun personality, dedication, and artful mastery of light. I photograph weddings throughout Maine and New England and can be available to capture your day.
I approach every wedding I photograph as if I were memorializing the day for my own family, capturing the essence of the people in attendance, the interactions between them and the joy and emotions felt. I do this in a way that is relaxed, easy going and work seamlessly with the day planned. I want my clients to focus on enjoying their day and celebrating with their friends and family. I'll be capturing all the candid moments and little details while while mixing it up with your friends and family to weave together the story of your day with images. These will be some of the finest and happiest moments of your life and it would be my pleasure to capture them in a creative, artful way for you to enjoy forever as husband and wife.
As a local to Cape Elizabeth, Maine for the past 12 years and photographing southern Maine weddings for the past 10, I've have a lot of experience with most of the local venues and vendors. The state of Maine is fortunate to have so many gorgeous locations from the clean and vast beaches to the rocky coast and then inland to the lakes and mountain areas. Maine really has loads of variety with no shortage of new and unique locations. Some of my favorite coastal venues to photograph Maine weddings are: The Colony Hotel in Kennebunkport, The Inn by the Sea in Cape Elizabeth, The Samoset in Rockport, The Stage Neck Inn in York, The Cliff House in York, Point Lookout in North Port, The Tides Beach Club in Kennebunkport, and the Nonantum in Kennebunkport. I also love the many beautiful barns located in Maine and recommend Flannagan Farm in Buxton, The Farm on Walnut Hill in North Yarmouth, William Allen Farm in Pownal, and Hardy Farm in Fryeburg. Maine also has loads of very unique venues such as the Stone Mountain Arts Center in Brownfield which is a musical venue that also does amazing weddings and wonderful food. The Evergreen Chapel in Gorham is probably one of the most unique as it is an open air chapel nestled within a pine grove for a secret garden like feel. For winter weddings or for those looking for a more enclosed venue, the Westin Hotel in Portland, Mechanics Hall in Portland, and The Portland Masonic are great choice with many hotels where guest can find easy accommodation.
If you are looking to have a smaller wedding or elopement Joshua Atticks Wedding Photography offers a 2 hours elopement package or an hourly package to suit any need. I am based in the Portland area and am available for ceremonies at Fort Williams Park, any local beach or locations in the area.
You can find various reviews from couples I've worked with on sites like Wedding Wire, The Knot and Google. I am so thrilled to have so many clients happy with my work and enjoying their time working with me. Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to say such kind words. All the reviews I have received are organic and derived from their own initiative.
