Melissa and Derek were married on June 2nd, with a ceremony and reception at Pat’s Peak, in Henniker, New Hampshire.

 

They met online, and once they got together in person, that was it—they were in love. The two of them are always busy—Derek as a state trooper for New Hampshire with a distinguished military career and Melissa as a paralegal—but the thing that shines through with both of them is their love not only for each other but for other people. Both of them have dedicated their lives to service, and it was even more amazing to see that side of them come out for the people they are closest to.

 

Bridgett from Pat’s Peak set up a beautiful wedding for these two—perfectly true to Melissa’s idea of what she wanted her dream wedding to be like. There’s something supremely satisfying about seeing a bride so pleased with the day, and Melissa was incredibly gracious and grateful.

 

Of course, the only drawback was the crazy weather that we got hit with. Mother Nature put on a ridiculous show for us—yet we persevered! But in the middle of all that, the sun came out, and it lit up the world with the most amazing rainbow.

 

Melissa & Derek, thank you for letting us be part of your wedding day! You were wonderful to brave the weather, and we wish you both nothing but the best.

Angie and Josh | Mount Sunapee Wedding

Posted by Peter Clayman on Wed, May 31, 2017 @ 06:00 PM

Mount Sunapee Wedding, NH Images Photography And Video

Angie and Josh were married on May 28th, with a ceremony at the summit of Mount Sunapee, in Newbury, NH, with a reception on the mountain.

 

Josh and Angie met in high school, so they have actually known each other for 18 years! They had gone their separate ways after school, but fate pulled them back together a few years ago. So, you could say that this big day has been a long time coming, and everyone was obviously so excited to see the two of them tie the knot.

 

On the day of the wedding, we took a gondola up to the summit, with Bruce Preston acting as second shooter. Gondola rides are always amazing, and this was no different—and the perfect way to start out the wedding. The weather was amazing and the couple looked so excited for the day to come.

Angie and Josh opted to do a first look ahead of the ceremony, which is always fun, but this time, there was a little something different. Josh had decided to shave off his beard and mustache for the big day, and he was nearly unrecognizable!

During the ceremony itself, Angie’s sister played an original song that she had written herself. That kind of personal, emotional touch truly brought weight to the ceremony and showed how much Angie is loved by her family.

We spent much of the rest of the day with Angie and Josh through the reception admiring the scenery. We can’t say enough wonderful things about this venue—the views were breathtaking, and the mountain scenery is a photographer’s dream. When spring arrives on the mountain it is simply spectacular.

 We would also like to thank Lynda and Pipere from Mount Sunapee. They were both great to work with, and it really does make all the difference when the people running the venue can make sure the whole day proceeds as smoothly as possible.

Angie and Josh, thank you for including us in your big day! We wish you both nothing but the best in your lives together.

Lindsay and Mark | Manchester Country Club Wedding

Manchester Country Club Wedding, NH Images Photography

Lindsay and Mark were married on May 20th, with a ceremony and reception at the Manchester Country Club in Bedford NH.

These two met at the Beer Garden in Southie (South Boston), and the two of them simply fell deeper in love with each passing day from there. They have been entirely supportive of each other, as Lindsay is a medical assistant and Mark is a gas tech at National Grid, and clearly, the two of them love to surprise each other, since Mark proposed to Lindsay and surprised her during his own surprise birthday party that she’d thrown for him!

We started off the day of the wedding photographing the bride and her ladies “getting ready” before we staged a first look between Lindsay and her father. The whole day was all the more special because Lindsay’s mom had passed away a while ago. Although it was a celebration, Lindsay and her family made sure to honor her memory at every chance.

Mark during that time was getting ready and hanging out with his best man and brother, Brian—who was not only the best man but the officiant for the ceremony. There was a closeness between those two that made the whole ceremony, as well as the rest of the day, even more special.

The Manchester Country Club itself was amazing for both the ceremony and the reception. The weather was wonderful and the light poured in through the huge windows in the ballroom. As the sun was starting to set, we snuck Lindsay and Mark out onto the green to take a few extra pictures. Kelsey and Sarah took such good care of both the bride and groom and their guests and pulled off a spectacular party!

Mark & Lindsay, thank you so much for including us in your special day. We wish you both all the best!

Willowdale Estate Wedding Photography Shelley + Jeff

Shelley & Jeff met via mutual friends many years ago and Jeff proposed to Shelley at Castle In The Clouds overlooking the entire lakes region. I was fortunate enough to do their engagement pictures more than 18 months before the wedding in the same area as Jeff's proposal and we just hit it off. Shelley & Jeff's wedding day was action packed from beginning to end. We were at three different locations for each phase of the day. We started off in Arlington, MA for both the ladies and guys getting ready. Next was the beautiful Holy Trinity Church, Cambridge, MA and their gorgeous reception was at Willowdale Estate in Topsfield, MA.

They rented a party bus from Black Tie Limo which was such a great idea going to several locations.

Omni Mt. Washington Hotel Winter Wedding Photograhy: Kristen + Scott

Posted by Peter Clayman on Fri, Mar 18, 2016 @ 04:15 PM

 

 

 

Mount_Washington_Wedding_Photography-3.jpgKristin & Scott were married at the end of February at one of the best spots to get married, The Omni Mount Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods, NH. The hotel is special to me as this is also the place that I married my amazing wife, Holly last year.  This is a story however of one mans triumph from being in the "friend zone" with Kristin to a romantic connection. I'm sure there are several people out there that would like to talk to Scott on how to do that. They are both kind and dynamic people so we are so happy for both of them. Before the ceremony our bride and groom did a first look due to daylight considerations (and wanting to get some amazing pictures outdoors). I like to do the first look in a private setting and that proved challenging as the hotel was packed with it being school vacation week as well. The ceremony was held in the conservatory, which is right next to the main lobby. The resort does such a great job making it feel like  you are worlds away from guests. One of the flower girls did a face plant right next to the bride and groom as she was walking down the isle....poor thing...but she bounced right back up. I guess at 3 years of age one can do that easily. The reception was located in the Presidential Ball Room. I always love hearing the toasts from the Maid of Honor and Best Man as you really find out some great things that make the couple special. On each table the groom placed a selfie stick for the guests to use. I had blast watching the little ones take teh selfie stick and literally run iwth it. We wish Kristin & Scott all the very best moving forward!
