Jon + Ashlee ~ Rye Engagement

I LOVE these two!
They are so sweet, genuine, and adorable.
Ashlee and Jon have been in love over a decade – their love is strong and evident and inspiring.
They are those genuinely cool people that you instantly feel comfortable around.
Ashlee has the best style ever and always looks like she walked off the set of the latest Anthropologie mag shoot – seriously!
Are you in love yet?
To top it all off, we had their engagement session at her Grandfather’s breathtaking waterfront property in Rye.
(Just wait until you see the getting ready shots at the same location from the wedding day!)
If anyone needs me, I’ll be over here swooning (again! Almost two years later!)
Enjoy this session and get ready for their beautiful fall wedding <3

Jenn + Mike ~ Odiorne Engagement

Odiorne Point is one of my favorite locations for photo sessions.
It has the best mix of greenery and ocean – two of my favorite things that are a perfect combination of what I love about New England.
I was thrilled when Mike and Jenn chose this location for their shoot!
From the minute I met Jenn, I knew she was a classic beauty with major style.
She is sweet and funny and beautiful and Mike is just as wonderful.
Together, they are not only a fabulous looking couple but they are so awesome and sweet to boot.
I loved this engagement shoot so much.
I seriously can’t believe it was already almost two years ago!
May this be the year of timely blog posts 😉

Emily and Reagan’s Downtown Exeter Engagement

Emily and Reagan are one of the absolute sweetest couples in the world!
I loved every moment of their engagement session in downtown Exeter.
It was a few days after Christmas and we had a wonderful time walking around, laughing, and trying to stay bundled up from the cold!
These two are something special, let me tell you.
It was truly an honor working with them.
Just wait until you see their GORGEOUS wedding that took place in Meredith, NH!
Stay tuned <3

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 honor of capturing!
xo.
