Can I really call this a Winter engagement session?

So was it realllllyyy a Winter …

Dot + Eddy | A Winter Engagement Session | Prescott Park | Portsmouth, New Hampshire

Winter can be challenging when it comes to photos. More so because we don't want to freeze to death while out getting all the angles, and one day it's a mild 40*, the next it's -7* with windchill. We had originally planned to meet on a Friday but I knew as soon as I went …

Stephanie + Joey | A Winter Engagement Session | Mack’s Apples | Londonderry, New Hampshire

Sarah + Colin | A Bohemian Chic Inspired Wedding | Bedford Village Inn | Bedford, New Hampshire

Sarah and Colin’s wedding was a dream in so many ways. Mostly because of it’s uniqueness, and the creativeness behind making this day what it was. For so many reasons, this wedding will go down as one of my most favorite in history. I don’t know if it’s the chemistry and passion that Colin and …

I used to live right down the road from Mount Sunapee, but it's a little crazy that I had never actually been there! I had previously stayed at Mountain Edge Resort years ago (back before I was a photographer) so I knew the getting ready space fairly well! But, it's just crazy that I had …

Aimee + Jeremy | A Scenic Elopement at Acadia National Park | Bar Harbor, Maine

Once I got through all the traffic, passed all the slow people, and made it through what seemed like an endless amount of construction zones... I made finally it to Acadia. I had never heard of Acadia up until Aimee's inquiry with me. When she told me she that she and Jeremy would be eloping …

Brendan + Beca | An Early Morning Engagement Session at Massabesic Lake | Auburn, NH

I won't lie. I was a little nervous for this early morning session. Not because of the absolutely sweet couple I was going to meet up with, but because it was the morning and I hadn't shot a morning portrait session since the very beginning of my days as a photographer. I wasn't sure what …
