Back from Vegas

And New England never felt so sweet to return to! Every Spring I travel to Las Vegas, Nevada for the Wedding and Portrait International Convention and Tradeshow. It's exhausting and exhilarating. This year, I had the honor of presenting on "Posing Two Brides or Two Grooms." I've become a bit of an expert on best practices for serving same-sex couples after co-authoring the book: The New Art of Capturing Love.  It was amazing to be part of this crew of educators!  Seriously, these are the best of  wedding photographers in the world. Possibly the best part of presenting was that I had the opportunity to photograph this couple as part of my presentation.  They turned out to be amazing to work with and I had so much fun walking around the MGM Grand Resort and making these portraits!

A Newburyport Engagement | Shannon and Jamie

Shannon and Jamie are getting married this March and we got together in Newburyport MA to do their engagement photos. It was so much fun! Not only did we discover parts of Newburyport that neither of us had ever seen, but I got to know so much about Shannon and Jamie's personalities. Shannon is quite a performer in front of the camera! Now I can't wait for the wedding.

Gunstock Mountain Engagement Photos - Laura and Josh

Laura and Josh are getting married next October in the Finger Lakes Region in Upstate New York. I'm super excited for there destination wedding! Josh grew up here in Laconia, NH and was invited back Laconia High School to be the keynote speaker at graduation. It was perfect timing for us to do their engagement photos. The couple chose Gunstock Mountain because of the unbeatable view of Lake Winnipesaukee from the summit. Not only we were able to take advantage of that view, but then we took a short trip to the town of Meredith, NH for some photos by the waterfall at Mill Falls and Meredith Bay. Now I just have to wait 14 months for their wedding!


Loon Mountain Engagement

One of this areas best kept secrets is that ski areas during off-season are fantastic portrait locations! I love to photography at Loon Mountain, Waterville and Mount Sunapee to name a few. So when Allison and Andy asked to do their engagement photos at Loon in May, I was thrilled. Just look at this beautiful nooks all in walking distance from the base of the resort!

Seacoast Engagement Photos in Portsmouth New Hampshire

Engagement sessions are a joy for many reasons. It is one of the few times that I get to spend with my clients in a relaxed environment and just get to know them. In addition, I don't mind the excuse to visit some fantastic New England locations. Emily and Mike gave me the excuse to spend a sunny Saturday in Portsmouth. We had a great time walking around the Strawberry Banke area and the waterfront...and we made some pretty special photos too, I think.

Shin-Boku Japanese Garden Engagement Photos

Megan found Shin Boku Stroll Garden in Wentworth on the internet and suggested we do her and Brian's engagement photos there. I had never been to the garden before so I welcomed the excuse to check out a new spot. The garden is not large but it is exquisite. Every inch has been tendered with care. In addition to the garden the nursery provided an excellent back drop and cows never hurt either. Megan and Brian were great, laughing the whole time. It is clear that this is a couple that truly enjoys their time together. Now I just have to wait for the wedding!
