Jocelyne + Cody | Engagement Session | Wagon Hill

 

Nearly six month to the day and these two will be tying the knot and dancing into their future at Rivermill at Dover Landing! I love when couples choose different seasons than that of their wedding for their engagement session and as these two will wed in fall, a spring session seemed very fitting! The seasons in New Hampshire are to beautiful to skip over!

It really doesn't seem to matter the time of year or the season that we are in, for ever time I visit Wagon Hill in Durham, NH I am always falling in love with every bit of its acres! Early in the New Hampshire spring season trees are still bare of foliage, and with that, the sun can pop so beautifully out from behind them. The glow, oh the glow! Wagon Hill + New Hampshire Wedding Photographer + The Glow! = Bliss! 


 

 

Seacoast New Hampshire Wedding Photographer | 2017 Wrap Up

 

One of the best things about being a New Hampshire wedding photographer is watching the beauty of the seasons change from one session to the next. Couples engagement session can be scheduled any time from contract to wedding month, and I always love looking back and comparing the seasons between the two.

How beautiful is it to have full NH fall colors in an engagement session and then full summer greenery come wedding day, or beautiful apple blossoms in late spring to the gorgeous golden oak trees at an autumn wedding.

New Hampshire really does spoil us with the beauty of seasons.

Colleen + Adam | Engagement Session | Wagon Hill | Durham, NH

 

Adam and Colleen are super sweet, and when I met them at Flag Hill Winery for our initial meeting and found out that they had only been engaged less than a month, I knew we were a fit! I mean talk about efficient!! Efficient, and gorgeous, I mean look at Colleens GORGEOUS hair! Hair like that combined with the gorgeous fall foliage is what NH wedding photographers dream of! 

I then found out that they were about to fly off on a two week trip around England, to spend time will all of Adams family there, and that is when I asked if possibly I could fit in their luggage, I mean everyone needs a traveling family photographer right!? Anyone who knows me, knows I have a slight obsession with everything England, it may even be a bit unhealthy... but hey i'm in love! 

We met up just shy of one year to their wedding date, for their engagement session at Wagon Hill, in Durham, NH. The grounds are stunning and the fact that we were bouncing around ten other photographers was no surprise. They even brought along a little extra love with a brown nose, and four legs, just wait until you see him! 
 

Colleen and Adam I am honored that you have chosen me to document your gorgeous wedding day at Flag Hill Winery, it is going to be a beautiful day! It was great to also be able to meet your little furry baby Porter, he really was so well behaved and the best!

Renee + Kenney | New Hamphire Wedding | Flag Hill Winery + Distillery

 

Not even the chance of rain could bring these two down off of cloud nine! Thankfully the rain skirted right around us at Flag Hill Winery, never even spitting a drop, and the wedding day went off without a hitch!

From the very first moment that I met Kenny at the couples engagement session, I could tell just how much he truly loved every ounce of Renee, when he said "whatever you would like", he truly meant it! This love became even more apparent to me as this wedding day unfolded. 

From the sweet moments of their first kiss, to the aw stricken reaction as Renee walked down the aisle, these two are so in love.

Their beautiful little Ms. Savannah may or may not have tried to walk away with the show, and possibly a lantern, mid ceremony, but man wait until you see how stinkin cute she was while doing it!

Meaghan + Talon | New Hampshire Outdoor Wedding | Flag Hill Distillery + Winery

 

The weather was a perfect 75 degrees, the sun was shining and the vines at Flag Hill Winery + Distillery, Lee, NH were in their full bloom glory, this day was destined to be gorgeous! The bride and all the special women in her family were all preparing while sipping champagne at The Wingate Salon and Spa in Stratham, NH But... before we get to all the beautiful photos and sweet love story can we rewind it back ten days. 

Not even two weeks prior to the wedding day and the bride is in emergency surgery to remove her appendix, then one day before her wedding, just prior to her rehearsal, shes teaching a cycle class! Girl what?! She then continues the wedding day by dancing the night away! 

So really and truly the fact that they met at a gym, and Talon fell in love while being razzed by the ever so sweet bride for not keeping up with her and then that Talon popped the question while the two were on a 6:30 am run while on vacation in St. Croix should come as no surprise because umm beast mode! And yes I said on vacation ... and run .... and 6:30 AM all in one sentence. 

Then after the excitement of the proposal wore down a bit .... they finished their (way to early) run with burpees and squats. hese two get it done! 

Wondering where Talon was keeping the ring... nope not the pocket.... his shoe. Yep that's love, running with a "rock" in your shoe to start and then putting a foot sweat ring on your finger. xoxo

Now for the pretty day!  

Meaghan + Talon thank you so much for the opportunity to document your beautiful day! It was truly a beautiful day full of so much love and fun!

Caitlyn + Jim | Surprise Engagement | Flag Hill Winery Lee, NH

I officially love surprise engagements! I mean really anything surprise is a blast to photograph, because those emotions are so real! When I received my first email from Jim, a month and a half out from the engagement day, I was so giddy with excitement! I reached right out to Christa at Flag Hill Distillery and Winery and she was equally excited, because well, we love, love!! 

On the day of, I was a total creeper and was hiding behind the trees to watch Jim and Caitlyn's tour of the vines and the animals on the property and then jumped under the cover of the tent to hide as they came around the corner to "The SPOT" This is where I strolled out to "be the vineyard photographer" and got everyone together for a great photograph of the tour group, "for the website"!

Tips For Better Wedding Photos | New Hampshire Wedding Photographer

Everyone is always full of tips and tricks for a smoother wedding day, but this is not really that. These tips are going to be from the perspective of the photographer to ensure many beautiful photos for your albums, because who doesn't want that! 


1. Look Up

I know this sounds super easy and silly to even mention, but it's worth mentioning. Brides as soon as you start down the aisle, look up at me. Mention it to your father too, because for some reason as soon as a bride and her father start down the aisle, instantly eyes drop down. I know it's nerves, and nerves will get the best of all of us... I too have a great shot of my father and I staring at the ground, but fight the urge. Look up at me, look past me to your groom, make eye contact with him, take it all in! This is the moment that all your planning has been for, this is your moment. I mean really how do you want to miss seeing this reaction?! [...]

Lauren + Mike | New Hampshire Farm Wedding | Epping, NH

 
Epping-New-Hampshire-Farm-Wedding-July-NH-Wedding

It was a perfectly sunny New Hampshire July day, when they gathered among the peach trees and blueberry bushes in front of loving family, friends and a horse or two, and took the vow to care for each others heart as one. 

It sounds straight out of a love story right?! Well it pretty much was! The bride and groom actually had their first date in Kindergarten, be it was only for cheese and crackers at the snack table, but per the maid of honors speech the bride was smitten from second grade on. 

I would imagine the planning process to get nearly a dozen friends on a ferry out to the Isles of Shoals for a surprise engagement is quite tedious. Never mind the fact that one friend actually missed said ferry and had to stay incognito as she hid just feet from the couple on the later ferry trip. Once they finally docked, and made their way on to the island, Mike dropped to one knee and with all their friends watching he asked Lauren to be his forever wife.

Awwww!

Now hours and hours and hours of planning later here we are at the quintessential New Hampshire farm wedding. The grounds were transformed from a deeply loved backyard farm to a beautiful wedding venue. The bride began her day with her ladies at her family home while the groom did the same with his men, the two did not meet until they came face to face down the aisle.

Marissa + Roland | New Hampshire Vineyard Wedding | Flag Hill Distillery + Winery

 

Marissa and Roland are married! The two tied the knot at the ever so beautiful Flag Hill Winery and Distillery in Lee, NH.  Flag Hill is one of my favorite locations to shoot at, not only are the grounds beautiful, being NH's largest vineyard, but the people are some of the best to work with! Christa and Maddie and their entire team are top notch!

The moment I walked into Marissa's bridal suite in Durham, New Hampshire I was welcomed by a cool, calm and collected bride while each of her maids and mama casually lounged, chatting away. From that point on I knew this was going to be a great day! Marissa and Roland have been extremely sweet from the moment that I met them at Flag Hill Winery , and I was elated when they choose me to document their love filled day. 

Bliss Studio from Dover, NH did a stunning job on Marissa's hair and make-up and were so amazing by coming right to the brides side to insure a stress free morning

Make sure to check for the shot of the handwritten letter and beautiful gift that Roland gave his bride the morning of their wedding, earrings that are sure to be treasured for a lifetime.

Michiko + Tyler | Engagement Session | Epping, NH Orchard

 

I am in love! If I could shoot engagement sessions in New Hampshire apple blossoms for the rest of my days I totally would!! I mean come on, just wait until you see these two!! In late October these two will tie the knot in a beautiful fall wedding at Flag Hill Winery & Distillery in Lee, NH. From beautiful spring blossoms to fall foliage, these two are capturing all the beautify that is New Hampshire seasons!  Flag Hill is by far one of my favorite venues, with amazing people and gorgeous scenery.  With the combination of this adorable couple and that venue it is destined to be a fabulous day!  This apple orchard session also had me thinking, how GORGEOUS would it be to have a wedding right in the pathway among the blossoms! Sign me up! 

Miko and Tyler deserve all the "awwwws" because these two are so sweet and once the session got rolling you could tell they are totally in love! Let me also tell you I  found this location while out roaming with my son, sent Miko & Tyler a text along the lines of "OMG I foung this gorgeous location let me know what you think?!" I could not have been more excited when they agreed! No matter where I go and what I am doing, my eye is constantly searching and thinking which couple would totally love it here?! 

So now that I have rambled... the photos!

Seacoast New Hampshire Wedding Photographer | Tips For A Seamless NH Wedding Weekend! | Seacoast To White Mountain Wedding | PART TWO!

PART TWO of Tips for a seamless New Hampshire Wedding!
 

Whether you are having a New Hampshire seacoast wedding or a White Mountains wedding everyone could use a little direction on planning a seamless wedding weekend! The following are ten more tips to help you along your way!

 

11. Plan your hair for your ceremony location, meaning beach = wind and white mountain peak = wind. So if you are planning a New Hampshire beach wedding ceremony in Rye or if you plan to say your I Do's at the top of Cathedral Ledge in the NH White Mountains, you can almost guarantee that you will have a breeze blowing through your entire ceremony, which will be very refreshing come summer time, but plan ahead and tell your salon that an updo is a must! Otherwise you will be fighting that hair the entire time and in every picture afterwards!

12. Can you hear me?! If you are planning an outdoor ceremony it would also be a great idea to consider a sound system. I am not talking a great huge system but a simple one microphone and speaker set up. Being that an outdoor wedding will not have the same acoustics as an indoor church wedding, your voice may need a little help to travel. We want all of your guests to hear ever word from your heartfelt love soaked vows.  [...]

New Hampshire Wedding Photographer | Flag Hill Winery & Distillery | Prefered Vendor | Lee, NH

I am so excited to announce that I will be working with Flag Hill Winery & Distillery as a preferred vendor, and I can not wait for the many weddings I will get to document and couples I will get to fall in love with there!

If you are still on the look out for a beautiful wedding and reception location you truly owe it to yourself to check this vineyard out. It's hard to believe that my husband and I actually checked out Flag Hill nearly 8 years ago for our wedding, prior to deciding to do an elopement style day, It was beautiful then and is even more gorgeous now.

While you are there make 100% sure to partake in a wine tasting and most definitely take home a bottle of their amazing Cayuga Sparkling White Wine! It is so light and sweet and a perfect way to toast to your futures together! [...]

Southern NH Wedding Photographer | Bay Bridal | Great Bay Discovery Center | Greenland, NH

This day could not have been more gorgeous, the sun was shining and the air had a perfect warmth to it, It was a perfect day to take your kids out to the local discovery center … yup. When my amazing friend agreed to go down to the Great Bay Discovery Center with me we never expected to stumble upon a dozen small children, all of whom had binoculars and one adorably cute boy also had on swim goggles ( no, before you ask, no they were not planning to swim in the bay, the goggles were simply an accessory, a neon yellow statement piece, and he wears them often, so his mother says ). Well we came around the corner to make our way to the board walk and had to walk directly thru all of the children and parents, only to then have them also turn and yup… follow us, all. the. way. After a brief pause and a few miniature onlookers broke out their binoculars to get a closer, much closer, look, they continued on their way and we had the walk to ourselves.

I swear when I came the week before to check out the location, it was as quiet as can be! [...]

My Wedding Story | Personal

I have decided that since I send each of my brides home with a questionnaire after their wedding, that it would only be appropriate for me to actually answer the questions also! Here is a bit of insight into our day and the years leading up to it! :)

How did you meet your husband!? ( I know… does that ever get old to say? ) : I met my husband 12 ish years ago in our High School English class. We sat next to each other in the class and soon began to build a friendship, a friendship that would grow over almost a two year period before we ever came up calling each other “boyfriend” and “girlfriend.” I later learned that I had actually met him two years prior in our freshmen gym class, where he was friends with one of my really good guy friends at the time. I vaguely remember saying hello to him at one point, but that’s about it until english class. [...]

Rustic Mason Inspiration | Personal

Is it strange that I just used up the last bit of battery juice taking photos of a mason jar in a wooden box…? No, no I didn’t think so, It is amazing how something so simple can spike alarge bit of inspiration. The mason jar sits upon my window sill above my kitchen sink and I can’t help but fall in love with it every time I look at it. I do not know if it is because I am a country girl at heart, or if it’s the way the purple flowers have wilted but still kept their strong purple color or the way the two blend so perfectly with the sturdy wheat. No matter what the reason I had to take a moment and grab my camera and my rings and shoot a few shots! I am always looking for opportunities to play and shoot my rings, I know I am biased but I just think they are beautiful. [...]
