Susan + Brett ~ Downtown Portsmouth Engagement

Susan and Brett live in North Carolina but she is originally from NH and they knew they would be getting married up here so they decided to do their engagement session in Portsmouth!
Downtown, and specifically Prescott Park, proved to be the perfect winter backdrop for their Christmastime shoot.
I wish more people would embrace winter photo sessions because truthfully – there is something magical about them.
I love the golden light and the bare trees.
Most of all, I adore this fun and adorable couple!
I can’t wait to blog about their breathtaking September seaside wedding!

Shayna + Justin ~ Newburyport Engagement

Shayna and Justin are two of the sweetest people you will ever meet!
We met for their engagement session in Newburyport before Christmas and it could not have been a more perfect spot.
Since this shoot, I have had the pleasure of also shooting Shayna and Justin’s wedding, maternity/family session, and even a newborn session when their baby girl was born!
I love nothing more than when I have clients-turned-friends that I get to keep up with year after year!
Love to these two… Get ready for their wedding post – coming soon <3
I promise I’m going to be better about blogging all of the sweetness I have the honorĀ of capturing!
xo.

Cristy + Andrew {In Love} ~ NH Engagement Photographer

Andrew and Cristy are all kinds of sweetness wrapped in adorable.
I met up with them at Wagon Hill for their engagement shoot and I knew instantly that this was one special couple.
Andrew and Cristy are so in love…. Gosh, I love love! ;]
They were friends for years before realizing how crazy perfect they are for each other.
Isn’t it funny how life works out like that? ;]
We had the best time walking around and it’s always fun when I have subjects as beautiful as the background I’m working with.
The way these two look at each other, hold each other, and just radiate love is so inspiring.
These images are some of my favorite…
and I’m even more excited to blog about their beautiful fall vineyard wedding!
All the best to you two – I am so thankful you chose to me to be the one to document this special time in your lives!
Love to you both! xo!
