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

Jocelyne + Cody | Fall Wedding | Rivermill at Dover Landing | Dover NH

“Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the lights.”
- Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

 

 

Early in their relationship Cody was stationed with the Army in Afghanistan. The two spent what precious time they could find, on Facetime talking of their days and escaping to the magical world of Harry Potter, as they read the books together. These special moments not only strengthened their relationship, but also concreted a special place in their hearts for Harry Potter and his magical escape.

On the morning of Jocelyne and Cody’s wedding the weather was cold and cloud covered as the couple and bridal parties prepared for the day at The Garrison Hotel. Yet, upon arriving to the first look location with these two, even the sun couldn’t help but come out and smile down on them. Their love is so real and pure, not only for each other but for each other’s families, and that is the best kind of love.

The sky cleared to a stunning blue and the sun shone brightly as the two joined as one in front of their family and friends at Parish of the Assumption Church in Dover, NH before making their way to the Rivermill at Dover Landing for their fun filled reception.

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!

Personal | Travis Benjamin | New Hampshire Apple Blossoms

Little man, I love you. I love your spunk, I love your love, and I even love your questions... Most the time.  As a New Hampshire photographer and mother I know all to well how fast kids grow and change so when I stumbled upon there GORGEOUS apple blossom trees just down the road from me I knew I had to come back and shoot there!

With a little coercing and bribery we made out way and we made it through the whole session without a grass stained knee! That happened on the way back to the car.

My Wish For You | Personal

My husband and I have recently purchased a new home, and we are in the midst of giving it the love it needs, and earlier today I spent my afternoon re installing outlets and light switches and it got me to thinking about my father. It has been nearly three years since my dad has passed and hardly a day goes by that I do not see something or do something that reminds me of him... and god how scary it is when I do something and realize, yikes I am my father daughter! The following is a post that I wrote on my personal Facebook page and it started the ball rolling of what my wish is for you. My wish for my son and each of you newly engaged and newly married couples is that you find a spouse that CHOOSES you.
