After The Wedding Must Have | Album | Amy Brown Bride

 

Months and months of your time goes into planning for your beautiful New Hampshire wedding, and now the day has come and you are officially MARRIED! Now what?! .... Now you need to preserve those beautiful images!

If you are an Amy Brown Bride then I know that you will already have all of your gorgeous images safely on an online album for you to share forever, but lets be real, there is just something special about holding an item in your hands. Nooks and tablets of all kinds may be taking over, but you wont see libraries closing down anytime soon... why? Because physical items matter, and there is a special feeling to holding a book, or a wedding album in your hands. 

This is why I suggest that all my couples order an heirloom album, these albums will not separate or fall apart with time, these albums, like your marriage, will hold true and solid. Each thick page  displays your love on classically beautiful lay flat binding allowing for full panoramic images. 

Albums can be ordered in many size combinations, but the classic options being  8x8 , 10x10 and 12x12.

Cover options range from many shades of linen to leather. One of my favorite cover options, is the distressed leather, it arrives with the presence of already being wrapped in history, just like your relationship. 

Each album also arrives in a linen keepsake box, for safe storage at home and in travel. 
 


The above album is:
 8x8 square
Leather bound in Distressed Timber
20 Pages holding 40 Images


 

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!

Michiko + Tyler | New Hampshire Fall Wedding | Flag Hill Winery | Lee, NH

 

Fall in New Hampshire. Period.

This NH wedding is 100% pure beauty and full of so much color it's amazing!   The trees at Flag Hill Winery were in their full glory for this October wedding, and we were blessed with a beautiful 65 degree day! 

Michiko and Tyler tied the knot beneath the vineyards, color filled oak trees and surrounded by so much love.  From a blissful first look with her dad, to a tear filled aisle walk to her groom, it is very apparent that Miko is deeply loved by the men in her life!

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.

Being a New Hampshire wedding photographer means that you have to be prepared for any weather. As any New Hampshire native knows, it could be sunny one moment, raining the next and depending on the season snowing the next! Leading up to this wedding the weather was beautiful and sunny and the night before the sky just opened up! I was concerned as to how the bride would handle it, but she was a champ! She focused on her beautiful day and the fact that she was going to be marrying her boyfriend of TEN YEARS!  The love was real, and the couple was truly all about enjoying their day and becoming one!

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 Photography | Tips For A Seamless Wedding Weekend! | Seacoast To White Mountain Weddings

As a New Hampshire wedding photographer I spend an exorbitant amount of time reading through many wedding magazines and I thought I would pick and pull and add my own two cents about ways to plan for a great, bump free New Hampshire wedding weekend!

Lets jump right in!

1. Do not cut your hair within two weeks of your wedding, this also goes for you spouse! No one wants to look back at their wedding photos and cringe at that "just cut hair" look or even worse, feel its so short but have no time for it to grow back a tad! Along those same lines, this is not the time to radically change your daily cut look!

2. Do not start tanning like a crazy person, this goes for both spray and beds! Not only will you look like a gorgeous Oompa Loompa, but unless your spouse and every person in your bridal party tans also, you will standout like a sore thumb. We want you to stand out for your beauty, not because you give people a craving for Doritos!  [...]
