Harkness Beach Engagement Portraits | Abi + Marc

Abi, Marc and I had so much fun exploring Harkness during their engagement session. We had a beautiful sky that day. Even better was a very photogenic couple who I swear were naturals in front of the camera. I barely had to tell them what to do. I always love sending my couples a short questionnaire when they inquire with me because well I LOVE getting to know them so I don’t feel like a stranger when we meet for the first time.

When I asked Abi how these two met this was in her own words. We met late summer 2016 through a mutual friend who had been trying to set us up for awhile. She invited him on a "girl's" weekend up in NH to hike and hangout. Needless to say, he held his own with 3 overworked nurses whose topics of conversations tend to veer towards the gross side. And he was still interested after watching me struggle on the hike with a nauseous stomach!

Then I asked about the proposal and this is were it gets even better. In Abi’s own words “We often go for walks at a friend's farm close to home with our dog, Ziggy. There are beautiful woods, trails and ponds to choose from. One late morning, the sun had broken out after a night of snow. He suggested we go for a walk because he knows I love snow. I was excitedly snapping pictures of Ziggy in his new scarf for our holiday cards when he suggested we hike to the top of the big hill on the property. As we were walking up, he started asking me about what were my "top three" memories for 2017. I immediately chose our trip to Costa Rica (our second date!). Then I talked about a fireworks festival in Montreal he took me to (because he knows I love fireworks!). We had done so many things that year, I told him I had trouble picking a third and told him it was his turn. By this point, we were at the top of the hill and I was obliviously looking all around at the snow-filled panoramic view. He talked about Costa Rica and then a trip to Denver where we saw our favorite band at Red Rocks. And then when I turned toward him, he was going down on one knee with a ring in his hand saying "And I hope this will make your top 3..." And then I blacked out. He says there was swearing and crying and then finally a "yes!".

I don’t think I could have worded this any better than Abi did… I am kinda obsessed with their love story and hearing about their second date to Costa Rica was ummmm pretty amazing. But if you want to hear about that you must come back to see their wedding posted soon.

Harkness Beach Photos | Gabrielle + Mike

Harkness Memorial park is always the perfect backdrop for any type of session weather it be for a romantic couples session or even when you wanna throw in the brides adorable son for a few family photos. I’m a big harry potter fan myself so I couldn’t resist letting little man keep his glasses on and his magic wand in hand. Mike is truly a great man and I am so happy for Gabrielle and little man to have him in their lives. He walked into Gabrielle’s life and loves her for everything she has to offer. Best thing ever is he gets and immediate family. Who couldn’t ask for more love than that? He gets two for the price of one…

Stop back by my blog soon to see their beautiful wedding from this past fall at the Gorgeous Burr Mansion!!

Intimate Devils Hopyard Engagement Session | Erin + Lee

I maybe be biased but I am a little obsessed with this session at Devils Hopyard from this past spring. Erin and Lee nailed it from the perfect outfits to every pose. I mean they are our naturals in front of the camera. You will see more of that when I blog their wedding here soon. I was so excited when I saw her ring because this girl LOVES rings. It was simply beautiful and I must say Lee did a fabulous job picking it out. I just love how they met at the local bar that Erin worked. Lee would come in with his friends for nearly two years before he finally asked this beautiful lady out. I secretly think he had to work up the courage but she gladly excepted and now they get to spend the rest of their lives making memories. He took her out on the greater banks on vacation and during a moonlit stroll he wrapped his arms around her and whispered sweet words into her ear. Little did Erin know what was about to happen when she turned around and he got down on one knee and asked her to spend the rest of her life with him. Its like a fairy tail and I am so honored to be their photographer and I get to share in their love story.
