Natalie + Tyler | Lee, NH Outdoor Wedding

Colors, all the colors! Flowers, all the flowers!

As a New Hampshire Wedding Photographer I am blessed to see many personalities shine through on each wedding day, and this gorgeous Flag Hill Distillery & Winery wedding is no different! Natalie and Tyler flew in all the way from Portland, Oregon for their friend, family and love filled day. Natalie’s mother is the floral genius behind all of the arrangements that you will see, and man, when mamas love and heart is in something, she delivers!

Natalie chose to walk down the aisle in a honeybee embroidered gown, and truthfully, it was perfect. I always preach to my couples to do what you want, its your day, make it ALL ABOUT YOU. Natalie did not want a crisp white “traditional” gown and she didn’t force it for family. Tyler walked the aisle also in a vintage brown tweed, I mean these two are the poster children for “I do what I want, and I look killer while doing it!” Also when I say Tyler walked the aisle, yes he too walked the aisle, he did not walk up the side to the front with his grooms men, Natalie actually walked the aisle first with both parents guiding her on this journey. She then waited as the speakers sang out “Here comes your man” and Tyler too came down the aisle with both of his parents walking with him.

Tyler is part of a band back home in Portland, Oregon and much to the happy surprise of family and friends, Tyler got up and serenaded his bride on their wedding day.

Colleen + Adam | Flag Hill Distillery | Rainy Day Love | Lee, NH

 

100% Chance of Rain. Nor’Easter. Heavy Winds.
Those were the words that were being used to describe the wedding weekend of Colleen and Adam, and all three delivered. The weather may have been rough, but nothing could stop these two from smiling as they became man and wife at Flag Hill Distillery and winery in Lee, NH.

Both Colleen and Adam started their days by exchanging special wedding day gifts. I love when couples exchange gifts and keep them wrapped for my arrival, it is such a special moment to be able to capture. Both Colleen and Adam were then able to wear those special gifts on their day, a beautiful set of pearls for Colleen and for Adam a dashing new watch.

From a First Look in the awesome Distillery to stolen moments among the spirit bottles, Flag Hill delivered a beautiful day, and the rain only helped to tighten the knot that was tied.

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! 

 

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?! [...]

Adriana + Alvin | Portsmouth Country Club | Wedding | Greenland, NH

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!

New Hampshire Vineyard Wedding | Jen + Rob | Surprise I Do! | Flag Hill Winery | Lee, NH

A surprise wedding!! What?! I know!! The original email inquiry read Engagement Party Coverage, but at that moment little did I know that it was no engagement party I would be documenting!

Two weeks prior to this gorgeous day it was snowing ... yup snowing in April, because well it's New Hampshire. This state sure is lucky that summer and fall are beautiful here, because winter and mud season spring sure are lacking!

The last thing I was expecting that week was to be scheduling an outdoor wedding ceremony at Flag Hill Winery in Lee, New Hampshire, but I was very happily mistaken! [...]
