Avery and Kevin were married on August 12th, with a ceremony and reception at Monadnock Berries in Troy, New Hampshire.


These two live in Virginia but came up here to have their wedding, and I’m glad they did. They picked an amazing venue that had gorgeous mountains as a backdrop, which added a feeling of grandeur to the ceremony that New Hampshire destination weddings are known for. You can’t find these backdrops in any other place!


Avery and Kevin’s Monadnock Berries Wedding

In particular, Monadnock Berries makes for a rustic, colorful setting. This farm is a pick-your-own berry farm that also brews ales and is absolutely the perfect setting for a farm wedding. With lush greenery and plenty of spots to stop and admire the view, it suited these two exactly. Because this New Hampshire wedding venue is family-owned, it also has that warmth that Avery and Kevin embody.


Avery and Kevin brought plenty of their college friends up for their wedding. It was fun to watch them interacting with that group. It’s so clear that they’re all close! Because of the nature of the venue, Avery and Kevin’s guests could pick some wild blueberries in the fields, and they all had a good time together—another good reason for their choice in venue.


Even though it was a rough week for weather, the rain held off long enough for some amazing outdoor pictures. And at the last moment, the sun broke through, painting a beautiful picture across the sky for some stunning backdrops. When the weather decides to surprise us with something that dramatic, it’s the perfect send-off for a romantic wedding day.


Thank you, Avery & Kevin, for coming to New Hampshire for your destination wedding! It was a pleasure to be your wedding photographer. I’d like to also thank Locomotion DJ and Monadnock Berries for their hospitality.

Caitlin + Dan's Wedding at Searles Castle

Posted by Peter Clayman on Sat, Jul 28, 2018 @ 06:00 PM

 

 

Caitlin and Dan were married on July 13th, with a ceremony at St. Thomas Aquinas in Derry and a reception at Searles Castle in Windham.

We wanted to feature this wedding particularly because the wedding planner who hired us is one of our favorites. Tracy Dapp and her crew from Inked Events are always a treat to work with. We wanted to thank them for making this wedding—and all of the weddings that they’ve worked with us to plan—run so smoothly. Tracy truly excels at helping couples express what matters most to them and we felt like Caitlin and Dan’s love story was captured in all the details of their wedding day. From the stunning florals to the shamrock details on their cupcakes, so much of their wedding day reflected their vision.

Caitlin and Dan’s Searles Castle Wedding

On the day of the wedding, we covered both the bride and groom as they got ready, with second shooter Bruce Preston hanging out with the guys to start the day. We knew that Caitlin and Dan had both worked so hard to prepare for this big day, and the anticipation of the culmination of their story up to that point was palpable. Caitlin looked so excited in all the images leading up to the ceremony.

St. Thomas Aquinas was an amazing backdrop for their ceremony, with its soaring ceilings and stunning stained glass windows. The wedding itself was very traditional, from Caitlin’s grand entrance as her father walked her down the aisle to the receiving line at the end of the ceremony. That’s something that you hardly see anymore, but it was fun to see the bride and groom as they greeted friends and family and celebrated together. After the ceremony, we did portraits with the bride, groom and wedding party.

The reception at the Searles Castle was nothing short of wonderful. From the very moment that Caitlin and Dan were introduced as husband and wife, every moment was filled with joy and smiles.

Dan & Caitlin, we want to with both of you all the best in your new lives together. Thank you for letting us be part of your celebration.

Jamie + Bobby's Wedding

Posted by Peter Clayman on Fri, Jul 20, 2018 @ 06:00 PM

 

Dell Lea Wedding NH Images

Jamie and Bobby were married on July 7th, with a ceremony and reception at Dell-Lea in Chichester, New Hampshire.

 

Bobby was Jamie’s first ever kiss! Everyone who heard that story thought it was incredibly sweet… even though after that first kiss Jamie ran away. (Everyone was young once.) Still, even after all that time apart—in which Bobby had kids of his own and Jamie pursued a life as a teacher and made some amazing friends—they were able to reconnect three years ago. And this time, no one ran away. Instead, they picked up their romance and ran with it.

 

Dell-Lea Wedding Photography

Even though it was a hot summer day, we enjoyed being around this beautiful blended family through the excitement before the ceremony and into the wedding and reception. It’s amazing not only to see a love story come together that has been so long in the making but to watch the different sides of their family all come together to celebrate—and eat cupcakes.

 

Dell-Lea has been voted the best wedding venue in New Hampshire. With its stunning mountain views, meticulously landscaped lawns and a perfect ambiance of rustic elegance, it’s not hard to see why. Jamie and Bobby had a beautiful backdrop for their “I do’s.”

 

We were also particularly pleased with the creative wedding photography we captured in that warm, light just before sunset. The light was amazing and framed them just right. We always try to get those perfectly-lit images in those golden, twilight hours. There’s something so special about preserving the first sunset a married couple shares as husband and wife.

 

Jamie & Bobby, thank you for allowing us to be part of your story. We wish you nothing but the best in your lives together with your beautiful family.

Christine + Spencer's Wedding

Posted by Peter Clayman on Tue, Jul 10, 2018 @ 06:00 PM

Christine and Spencer were married on June 30th, with a ceremony and reception at Mount Sunapee Resort.


It’s not often that we get to see so many people from all over the country coming to New Hampshire, but for Christine and Spencer, the flood of loving, supportive friends and family members was amazing to see. Even though it was very, very, very hot and humid, nothing could stop the party atmosphere that followed Christine and Spencer and their friends as they celebrated the day.


We especially loved to photograph the flower girl, who was super cute. Almost every wedding has someone like her to completely steal the show and the hearts of everyone at the wedding. But that was typical of the whole group: nothing could slow them down.


My second shooter, Bruce Preston, and I photographed both Christine and Spencer as they got ready and then headed to a first look. The moment that Spencer saw Christine for the first time was unforgettable, as was the way he embraced her. This is what wedding photography is all about: those moments of pure, unfiltered emotion.


Mount Sunapee Wedding Photography

We also loved photographing at Mount Sunapee Resort. You could see for miles with the view, and any picture that shows off that picturesque scenery is among our favorites of the day. Can you blame us? While Mount Sunapee is often known as a skiing location, it’s also perfect for a summer wedding, with mountains in the background as well as a lake view that caught our attention as soon as we arrived to the venue. We would definitely love to come back here in the future and would recommend it as a great wedding destination for any future brides and grooms.


We want to wish Christine and Spencer all the happiness in their new lives together. Thank you for asking us to be part of your wedding memories!

Caitlyn + Mike's Wedding

Posted by Peter Clayman on Wed, Jul 04, 2018 @ 06:00 PM

 

Hampton Victoria Inn Wedding NH Images Photography

 

Caitlin and Mike were married on June 23rd, with a ceremony at Fuller Gardens in Rye and a reception at the Victoria Inn in Hampton, New Hampshire.

 

Caitlin + Mike: Fuller Gardens Wedding Photography

These two began their love story when Caitlin moved to the same town as Mike. As Mike put it on their actual wedding day, he swooped in before anyone else could ask out this beautiful woman. It’s obvious that they’re both glad he did. The two of them are deeply in love and even have a baby boy together, with another one on the way.

 

We loved how they made sure to keep their whole family involved in the day. Lorenzo, their little boy, was the perfect ringbearer for the occasion. It’s clear that they’re ready to be a family of four, so we tried to capture as much of that love and excitement as we could as we photographed them throughout the day.

 

We were able to get some amazing pictures at Fuller Gardens while we were doing portraits. Thankfully, the weather held out for us just long enough for us to take full advantage of the beautiful spot. I can’t believe we beat the rain—the skies opened up when we weren’t trying to take those outside pictures, so we timed it perfectly. I’m particularly proud of the photo of the two of them through the tree branches. It just spoke to me—especially in black and white.

 

The Victoria Inn Wedding Reception

After the ceremony and wedding portrait photography, we headed to the Victoria Inn and Pavilion in Hampton for the wedding reception. The garden Pavilion at the Victoria Inn is a beautiful New Hampshire wedding venue, surrounded by fragrant rose bushes and lush greenery. There was so much love as friends and family celebrated Mike and Caitlin’s new adventure as husband and wife.

 

Mike & Caitlin, thank you for letting us be part of your celebrations. We want to wish you and your growing family the best as you take on the world together. From what we’ve seen, we know your future is bright.
