Bethany & Adam ~ Hotel Portsmouth ~ Wedding Photography

Posted by Peter Clayman on Mon, Dec 22, 2014 @ 04:06 PM

Bethany & Adam were married a few weeks ago near the heart of downtown Portsmouth, NH at a cozy place called The Hotel Portsmouth. It was an intimate wedding (which we love) with just very close family attending.

We started out doing just a touch of the getting ready then it was off to do a first reveal.  Adam was a little nervous to say the least, and it was a very sweet private moment for the two of them.  Since there was limited time left in terms of daylight we immediately jumped into the car to a nice private area of downtown Portsmouth.  Its right by city hall and we stumbled upon this spot while doing an engagement session earlier this year.  For such a busy little city this area is quiet  and quite picturesque.

Once we got back it was time for the wedding ceremony (once they warmed up :).  One of the moments we relish capturing is the raw emotion just before the ceremony starts...In this case Bethany's dad was sweetly caught up in the moment as they were about to walk down the isle. Once the ceremony started they exchanged vows and rings and after there was a celebratory toast! We wish our happy couple all the best life has to offer.

Kara & Derek ~ Dell-Lea Weddings & Events ~ Wedding Photography

Posted by Peter Clayman on Mon, Nov 10, 2014 @ 12:33 PM

Kara & Derek were married on a crisp fall day at the very scenic Dell-Lea in Chichester, NH.  Kara & Derek have this amazing energy about them and their love runs incredibly deep so it was an honor to witness and document their special day.

So when it came to photos, we covered everything from basic bridal preparation all the way through the reception.  They also did a first reveal so that we could get most if not all the pictures done ahead of time.

Here are some of the image from our intial session :)

As you can see there is just an amazing free spirit about both of them...

The ceremony was light hearted and fun with Kara and her Dad walking down the isle...even though Kara & Derek had already seen each other you can just see him beaming from ear to ear...one of the really cool aspects of the ceremony was that both Kara & Derek did their vows seemingly together.  Usually its one person goes first then the other...but in this case they mixed it up nicely...very well done :)

after the ceremony we were able to do some fun bridal party pics along with some additional photos of Kara & Derek :)

The reception included the introductions, and a high energy first dance along with speeches and toasts...one of the bridesmaids was celebrated for coming to the wedding all the way from China! There was fun and dancing all night long...we wish Kara and Derek all the best and happiness in the world!

Amanda & Brad - Stonewall Farm - Wedding Photography

Posted by Peter Clayman on Fri, Oct 17, 2014 @ 06:12 PM

Amanda & Brad were married at one of the more scenic rustic place to get married Stonewall Farm, Keene, NH.

We had a chance to get to know Amanada & Brad before the wedding by doing their engagement images and what we learned is they are an easy going fun loving couple who just happen to appreciate great photography...near and dear to our heart! :) We covered the day from the bride and groom getting ready through the early part of the reception.

bride and groom

One of the many things we appreciated is that Amanda & Brad had a nice manageable bridal party consisting of 1 maid of honor and 1 best man...and that was it...I know, I know having 10 on each side is fun, but its nice to see something more intimate from time to time.

The ceremony had an awesome fall foiliage background and was performed by a good friend of the bride and groom...even one of the readings had a personal connection with Brad's mom filling that role.

After the ceremony we were able to get these photos:)

We loved the open concept of the reception room as we captured the first dance, toasts and parent dances.  Erin our day of coordinator did a great job of keeping this in order and we want to wish Amanda & Brad all the happiness in the world!!

Amanda & Gary ~ Camp Kabeyun ~ Wedding Photography

Posted by Peter Clayman on Thu, Oct 02, 2014 @ 09:50 PM

Amanda & Gary were married in a beautiful scenic area in Alton Bay, NH called Kabeyun...I have known Amanda for years as she was the senior wedding coordinator at castle in the clouds up in Moultonboro.  This was a great wedding simply because the more unique things that you can have at your wedding the more opportunities to capture something unique. I also loved this wedding because Amanda and Gary love the outdoors so everything fit their personalites.

So for this wedding we covered everything from bridal preparations through the reception. Starting off bridal preparations but with a twist...Amanda helped her soon to be husband get ready which made for some unique images.

So before the ceremony we did most of the family pics and some with Amanda and Gary.  The campsite was huge and we had so many options at our disposal.

The ceremony was set slightly in the woods overlooking the water.  Here are some of the highlights from the ceremony.

After the ceremony we went onto Gary's boat for a little joy riding...I now know what Gary's second love looks like ;)

Once we were finished with taking pictures Amanda and Gary made their way to mingling with guests during the cocktail hour.  Everything was right on the water and they placed decorated tables near the docs so people could be emmersed in the scenery.

So as the reception kicked off, Amanda and Gary did their first dance and went right into the parent dances after that the formalities...once that was all done we had some of the best food I have ever had at a wedding.  The catering was done by Hart's Turkey Farm and featured one of my favs lobster mac and cheese and it was aaawwwssooommeee!! Finally DJ Nate Downs had everyone dancing throughout the night and they had a bonfire going on and this is what we were able to get! To all the couples out there...do something different and this is what you can get!!! We wish Amanda and Gary all the happiness in the world!
