This past summer photographer William Brehm had the opportunity to work with John and Ann Lynch and their family to create a new family wall portrait for their den. The shoot took place at the Lynch’s home on the Union River in Ellsworth.

Perry’s Nut House New Souvenir Brochure

Posted in General on November 25, 2009 by riversidestudio

This past year we had the opportunity to work with the good folks at Perry’s Nut House to help them create a new souvenir brochure. Photographer William Brehm was called upon by Graphic designer Ross Cottrell of Cottrell Designs to photograph the entire location of Perry’s in Belfast. Everything from families having fun at the fudge counter to the collection of taxidermy was part of this photo shoot. Excerpts of the finished brochure appear below.

Vist Perry’s online and when in Belfast make sure you stop and visit the Nut House but be warned, once you have tasted some of the delicious fudge and assorted other goodies you may become addicted. Creating the images used in this project was only the beginning of the creation process. Ross Cotrell did a fabulous job putting this brochure together. He is one of the finest graphic designers we have ever worked with. If you would like to discuss your next print design project with him, he can be reached at 207-567-4228.

Kate & Ellard’s Isle au Haut Wedding

Posted in General on November 23, 2009 by riversidestudio

On August 15th Kate & Ellard tied the knot on Isle au Haut Maine.

It was a spectacular sunny day and the all island event was not to be missed. The ceremony took place at the Union Congregational Church and was conducted by Rev. Ted Hoskins.

The ceremony was followed by a lobster bake on the Head Harbor beach at the home of Kate and Ellard. Lobsters were provided by several local fisherman and other foods were prepared by a number of Isle au Haut residents.


The cake was made by Kate Shaffer of the famous Black Dinah Chocolatiers located on Isle au Haut.

We were truly blessed to be a part of this wonderful community event and have the opportunity to record the special moments of the day.

Based on the good vibes in the air that day it looks like Kate & Ellard’s future happiness together is a SURE THING.

Kate & Ellard Isle au Haut Wedding was photographed by Maine Wedding Photographer William Brehm.
