4 Tips To Make Your Day Even More Perfect | NH Wedding Photographer

Write Love Notes

Your wedding day will be filled from beginning to end with hugs, smiles and stories of love and laughter with family and friends. Tip One is Write Love Notes. Take a moment before your big day to write a note to your soon to be spouse, tell them of your excitement for the big day, of your anticipation of the future, and the love you have for them. Then the day of the wedding exchange the letters, for extra special photos make sure to keep them held tightly until the photographer arrives. You can choose to read them to yourselves, or to each other, but either way this is a moment that is sure to make your day even more special.

Hold Hands

Now lets be real, never let go of that new Husband or Wife of yours, this is your day to proclaim that they are yours! Love on them! More specifically though, hold hands during your first dance, take it back to traditional dancing, and a bit less middle school dance style. Not that you do not still look completely adorable and in love, but traditional posture will show off your beaming faces … and a bit less elbow and arm pit.

Have A First Look

Once your day is rolling, it is going to be so filled with fun, laughter, hugs and if your are lucky food! ( Make sure you stop and eat! * bonus tip ) By having a first look you are carving out a special time that you know will be just you and your spouse, a quiet moment before the hustle starts where you can really take each other in and appreciate the huge step you are taking in your lives. Trust me when I say that a first look will not detract from the special moment of walking down the aisle, if anything it will allow you to fully enjoy it, the nerves will have left because those moments during the first look will remind you of what is important during your day.

Smile, Laugh, Joke

I know it sounds so simple, but as soon as the camera is out, bam we all become deer in the headlights. Be playful, be cuddly tell a joke, make it clean, or dirty, either way I promise I won’t listen, but in that moment you bet I will be capturing those smiles!

In a blink of an eye you have grown from a toddler that was terrerizing their house, to a

Sabrina + Felix | Surprise Proposal | Flag Hill Winery Distillery

 

Have I spoke recently about how much I love, love?! I did... well okay, I still do! Proposals are quickly becoming a high favorite moment of mine, and Felix and Sabrina's surprise proposal at Flag Hill Winery and Distillery in Lee, New Hampshire is no exception! When my husband and I got engaged, we took photos of course, because even 11 years ago, selfies were a thing! But lets just say the photo... could be better! I would have loved to have the moment documented by a professional photographer to have for a lifetime! Your engagement, your wedding and your babies, three milestone moments that each deserve special attention. 

I was contacted by Felix about a month before the special day, which was also the weekend of their six year anniversary, so sweet! In that month we tossed around locations, times and plans. Felix settled upon Flag Hill Winery once knowing not only how gorgeous it was, but also how the two could really make a special date out of the outing. Wine tasting, surprise proposal, strolling hand in hand among the vines. Perfect night out! 

The day of the proposal could not have been a more beautiful day full of blue sky, and huge smiles!


Thank you so much Felix for allowing me to be a part of such a special day in you and Sabrina's lives! It was truly and honor! Sabrina congratulations on catching yourself a true gentlemen! 

 

Sandra + Michael | Wedding | Flag Hill Distillery + Winery | Lee, NH

Rain before and rain after, yet not a single drop on this gorgeous Flag Hill Winery and Distillery wedding day! Sandra and Michael's New Hampshire wedding day could not have been more perfect, if it were hand picked! 

Twenty one person bridal party... twenty one! This was by far the largest wedding party that I have been honored to photograph, and they were amazing! Now as any of my couples can attest too, I speak a lot ahead of time that I like to help ensure that a wedding day runs as smooth as possible, and with that avoid any "herding of cats." Yes... let twenty one cats out and then try to wrangle them back together, look in one direction, smile, and don't blink! That is often how large bridal party portraits and family portraits can feel like, but not this group! Everyone was so cooperative and genuinely sweet and loving to their friends the bride and groom. ( You have a great group Sandra and Michael! ) 


Thank you Sandra and Michael for the honor of being your wedding photographer, you two are so genuinely sweet and your bridal party was so welcoming and friendly! If I ever had to handpick a massive bridal party, I would deffinetly choose your friends agani and again!

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"!

Marissa+ Roland | Engagment Session | Portsmouth, NH

Prescott Park, mid bloom, has got to be one of the most beautiful settings to shoot in on the seacoast of New Hampshire. I am all about the coast line and the sand, but these gardens just pop like no other! I have a feeling that any other seacoast New Hampshire photographer would agree that they would jump each opportunity to shoot here, no matter how many times it may be! [...]
