Autumn & Janet :: Beach Wedding in Rye, New Hampshire

Autumn and Janet were married in an intimate, beachside wedding on the beautiful coast of Rye, New Hampshire. They got ready to walk down the aisle at the gorgeous Hilton Garden Inn in Portsmouth, New Hampshire just doors aways from each other. It was hard to tell who was more excited: Janet for her tux and boots or Autumn for her stunning dress. Not to mention the shared excitement of everyone just thrilled to see them getting married!

The sunset ceremony was absolutely perfect. The moon rising over the horizon behind them while the sun set in front of them. The light was gorgeous! The ceremony was very personal for Autumn and Janet. My favorite piece was that they had all of their guests chose a small rock from the beach prior to Autumn walking down the aisle. During the ceremony, they gathered all of the rocks in a basket to signify their loving and supportive friends and family that were surrounding them on their special day. Such a great idea!

Autumn and Janet, thank you for letting me play a roll on your day. I hope that you are basking in the glow of newlywed-ness! Congratulations!

Brittany & Dan :: Trashing the Dress in Portsmouth and Footbridge Beach in Ogunquit

Oh, Brittany and Dan. How I love thee! These two love birds were married back in June during an especially gorgeous (aka warm) early summer day. With grand plans for a first look in downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire, we were all super excited to get lots of yummy portraits of the two of them before they tied to knot. But, as luck had it, there was not only a wedding set up where the "meeting spot" was supposed to be and the park was filled with Chowder Fest people! Obviously, our plans were dashed.

Not wanting to miss out, we got together again after the wedding and honeymoon to capture photos in those beloved locations much like we had envisioned for a couple months prior (minus Brittany's longer hair thanks to the post marriage chop, which I loved!). Here is a sneak peek of the magic that we caught during our session together. I love these two super bunches! I dare say you can just feel how in love they are. Ahhh.... *happy sigh*

The bridge shot below was one of our "really want to take" shots for our time together. Unfortunately, the bridge was closed and it was VERY clear there would be no walking on the bridge deck itself. However, never underestimate the power of a white dress and a really determined photographer. And a construction guy who wasn't afraid to get yelled at my his boss for letting us jump the barricades. :-)
