Portsmouth NH wedding engagement photographer

Portsmouth NH engagement session photography

On a nice late afternoon in mid-June I worked with Jess and Steve on their Portsmouth NH engagement session photography. Jess was referred to me by her cousin Jill. I photographed Jill’s wedding and Jess was one of her bridesmaids. Jill has sent a lot of folks my way for weddings- it just so happens that her father was my high school track coach! Jess and Steve’s wedding was held at their home in Maine lakeside. I’ll be posting images from their wedding in a later post. In the meantime, have a look at their engagement session photographs taken around downtown Portsmouth, NH and then see her cousin Jill’s engagement session and wedding. We strolled all over, making photographs at Strawberry Banke, Prescott Park, and various spots downtown.

Log Cabin Holyoke Wedding Photography

Log Cabin Wedding Photography, Holyoke, Massachusetts

I photographed Aaron and Alyssa’s June wedding reception at the Log Cabin in Holyoke, MA. Their wedding ceremony took place at Goshen Congregational Church. The couple met through college- Aaron was Alyssa’s brother’s roommate at Gordon College. Their wedding colors were a nice cheerful yellow and blue, perfect for the time of year and since it rained that day, it helped bring some nice color to the wedding photos. Their wedding is the third in a line of referrals of Gordon College friends and graduates who have had me as their wedding photographer. I also photographed Gordon College classmates Matt and Meg’s wedding at Moraine Farm and associate photographer Nic photographed Matt and Sonya’s wedding at Zorvino Vineyard. Alyssa had a nifty makeup mirror that featured a wedding portrait of her grandparents.

Lowell Massachusetts Wedding Photography & Reception at Merrimack Valley Golf Club

Martin and Ebony’s June wedding was held at Saint Michael’s Church in Lowell, MA. The couple chose to do a “first view” photo session before the ceremony at Riverfront Park in Lowell which we also captured on video. Some of their photos and video are shared below. Their bridal party did a “Soul Train Line” upon entering the reception with a performance of the robot dance by the couple when they were announced to the delight of their guests. Their wedding planner, Leslie Craig of Planned Perfectly, has shared some additional photos of mine from their wedding on her blog at Planned Perfectly. Martin and Ebony met on the Orange Line while commuting to work and you can hear Martin tell the story about that in their wedding video below. I also photographed their engagement session, which involved trains as well!

Matt & Sissi’s Searles Castle Wedding

Matt and Sissi had their U.S. wedding event at Searles Castle in Windham, NH. Only Sissi’s father was able to attend stateside, but they also had an event in China, her home country, as well with family there. Sissi changed dresses during the reception to pay homage to her heritage. Of course I made a 2nd round of portraits to capture that as well! I had Nicolaus as 2nd photographer as well as Don on video. Following are photos from both Nicolaus and myself.
