I think September is one of the best months for shooting weddings. Maybe I'm biased by my love of everything and anything that has to do with the fall season, but I mean...what's not to love? The sweltering summer heat has died down, but it's still warm enough to spend the whole day adventuring outside, and many of the flowers and greenery are still alive and kickin'. And so, I was extremely excited to kick off my fall season with Cam and Hei Keu - a wonderful Thai couple from Albany, NY, who made the road trip over to New Hampshire to get married. September 16th, we started off the day by meeting at Wagon Hill Farm, in Durham, NH where the light was p-e-r-f-e-c-t for a morning engagement session. I have been dying to do an engagement session at Wagon Hill Farm for ages, and these two could not have been more fun to work with! Hei Keu came prepared with a big sunflower, and as we roamed through the expansive grounds of Wagon Hill Farm, she picked wild flowers to create her own mini bouquet. On more than one occasion, we were photobombed by the various dogs that people were walking off-leash throughout the park.
Following the engagement session, we headed over to the gardens at Prescott Park in Portsmouth, NH, for the bridal shoot. Talk about flowers! This place was like a mini fairytale land. I went nuts for all the colors, and they complimented the floral design on the upper half of Hei Keu's gorgeous, form-fitting wedding dress wonderfully. Cue yet another photobomb by a friendly dog going for a stroll at the park - but that old girl was a total natural in front of the camera.
Finally, we finished off the afternoon with an intimate ceremony at the Manchester, NH city hall. Only close family attended. It was a relaxed and rewarding day - I love getting to work one-on-one in intimate sessions with couples on their wedding day. The feeling of excitement and love that fills the day is one of the many reasons that I enjoy my job so much.
