Is it the crisp, cool and refreshing Autumn air? Or maybe the limitless views from the craggy summits in the White Mountains? Ahh, yes it’s all these things but mostly it is the Fall foliage colors that cover the forests of this state like a quilt throughout the month of October.
These are also the reason why this time of year is the most popular for weddings. The backdrop is unique and beautiful, like every bride, where the white dress pops from a background or oranges, reds and golds.
For some couples it’s a worst case scenario, but for a professional wedding photographer a rainy day wedding is seen as an opportunity. First off, it is so rare that a rain event on a wedding day is so torrential that the idea of doing some photos outside is completely off the table – I would say this happens to me maybe once a year. And this rule certainly applied at Maureen & Christopher’s Spring wedding at Waterville Valley Conference & Event Center in Waterville Valley, NH. Though the family formals, the ceremony and reception had to be inside or under cover, we were able to use the beautiful scenery of the White Mountain National Forest and the Osceola Arbor as the backdrop to the “first look”, bride & groom portraits and wedding party photos.
Imagine a dream destination wedding at one of the most beautiful places in the world – Martha’s Vineyard. The sea air hits you as soon as you reach the ferry in Wood’s Hole, and transports you to a new place that feels like the best kept secret that everyone knows about but few act upon. The haze in the hot and not-quite-summer air created the most beautiful light and I cannot think of a better spot than Sailing Camp Park for an intimate, outdoor wedding ceremony on Memorial Day Weekend.
So happy to be able to share three amazing sneak peek photos from my engagement session with Linda and Jeremy a couple weeks back. We chose one of my favorite photo shoot locations in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, a lovely covered bridge high above the little town of Cabot. Yes, the same Cabot that we know and love for their delicious cheese!
Castle in the Clouds is a historic mansion high above Lake Winnipesaukee in picturesque Moultonborough, New Hampshire. This interesting landmark is a popular tourist attraction to those visiting the Lakes Region of New Hampshire and it's surrounding towns - Wolfeboro, Center Harbor, Meredith, Ossipee, Alton and more.
Not only gorgeous but well throughout out details are the staple of a successful DIY wedding. Another important piece is a celebration is that it is within realistic capabilities! The guest list at Rosa and Eric's beautiful seaside wedding at a home on Cape Elizabeth was small, intimate and the perfect size so the stunning decor and Pinterest-worthy details could be achieved.
I was so excited to photograph Sarah and Onche's beautiful wedding ceremony at a historic building, Christ Church of Cambridge. The claim to fame at this church is a bullet hole from the Revolutionary War! Sarah had a gorgeous princess wedding gown with layers and layers of tulle plus a stunning lace veil. There were so many flower girls that I couldn't count! It was a beautiful day and I believe the photos speak from themselves, enjoy!
I met Catherine and Jesse in the Fall, about 6 months ahead of their May wedding. At once I knew I was in for a fantastic day from the start. The ceremony was to be held at the brides high school in Milford, CT. Her decision to hold the ceremony at a place with such importance to her made the moments and rituals of preparing for the day all that much more personal.
