Lyssa and Byll had an intimate garden ceremony at Candia Woods last month. The sky was bright blue and the sun shown high in the sky as they said their I Do’s on a beautiful May Sunday afternoon!
The air was crisp and the smell of winter and snow filled the air. It was February in New Hampshire and we were having what New Englander’s call a “heat wave”. The bridal suite was warm and filled with laughter and color. The deep purples, bright pinks, greens and blues drew you in and made you smile. It was Natalie and Jesse’s wedding day and the joy and laughter was infectious. Every detail was perfection and every color was bright, bold and made everything pop.
I have gushed about many first looks, but the look on Jesse’s will always make me smile. Pure joy and love is all I see when I look at the images from their first look. These two have so much love for each other!
I have known Courtney since we were in preschool together, so when she and her husband had baby number 3 I was ecstatic for them. I was so honored to be trusted with his newborn photos! In true baby fashion, little Barry was much more interested in what was going on around him then going to sleep. Though after some snuggles from Mama and a lot of eye rubs, he finally fell fast asleep and ended up taking a nap with a giant teddy bear!
As a New Englander and someone who grew up not far outside of Boston there is nothing quite like Boston in the snow. So an engagement session with some fresh snow on the ground made me all warm and fuzzy on the inside, which was a good thing as it was very cold on the outside! Danielle, as lover of heels, came prepared with two awesome pairs for their shoot, along with her cute snow boots for walking along the streets and through the crunchy snow. We started our tour of Boston in the beautiful Boston Public Garden, walked through the amazing sunlight pouring into Boston Common, down historic Acorn Street, and ended at Faneuil Hall.
I met Christine and Jimmy at the amazing Cruiseport Gloucester‘s bridal show at the beginning of last year. We had a few hiccups trying to get together and chat as Mother Nature decided to dump just a few blizzards our way that year! Once we were able to make it through the mounds of snow and chat it was instantly apparent we were the perfect fit! We had a blast walking their great dane Guinness around Boston for their engagement session. He was the talk of the city! Everyone we walked by wanted to meet him and he was only too pleased to oblige. I couldn’t wait until January 1st to shoot their wedding. The weather was crisp but the day was beautiful. The details were sparkling. Saint Ann’s Parish was draped in gorgeous crimson poinsettia plants. It really was the perfect way to begin the new year!
Jimmy had rolled his ankle pretty bad the night before so unfortunately couldn’t participate in most of the dancing…but him and Christine still had a lot of fun together as the crowd danced “with” him and included him in all the fun 🙂
Congratulations Christine and Jimmy! I can’t wait to see what the future holds for the two of you!!!
