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.

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

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.

Kelsey + Ryan | Backyard Wedding

Backyard Wedding NH Photography

Kelsey and Ryan were married on June 16th, with a ceremony and reception at a private residence in Mont Vernon, New Hampshire.

I was personally excited for this wedding, as Kelsey went to the University of Maine, which happens to be my alma mater. Having a personal connection like that honestly makes weddings more fun! Ryan went to the University of New England, but he was still fun to photograph too, of course.

Both Ryan and Kelsey have an amazing connection with their friends and family, especially because they met because of those relationships that they hold dear. They made an instant connection at a party with their family and friends, and everyone there could see it. So, as friends do, they encouraged that spark. You can bet everyone at this wedding was excited to see that love story come to fruition! This wedding party lasted late into the evening. A few of their friends even stayed over and pitched tents on the property, so that they could all have a little more time together.

 

Kelsey and Ryan’s Backyard Wedding

The day of the wedding was the first really warm Saturday of the year. New England weather is often unpredictable when it comes to when seasons decide to change. Not only did we get good weather, but also amazing backdrops all over the property. When we arrived to do some “getting ready” shots, we were rewarded with a gorgeous summer shoot. Kelsey and Ryan put in so much work for this backyard DIY wedding. They rebuilt a barn on the property and even had a hand-built arbor. Those details make all the difference in weddings—and they mean even more when you add in that much effort.

Everyone in the wedding looked so happy and relaxed through the afternoon. One of the benefits of a backyard wedding is the rustic feeling of intimacy that it creates. It was a beautiful day for this couple to begin the rest of their lives as husband and wife.

Kelsey & Ryan, we wish you nothing but the best in your new life together. Thank you for pulling together an amazing wedding that we won’t soon forget and, of course, thank you for having us provide your New Hampshire wedding photography! It was an honor.

Melissa + Derek | Pat's Peak | NH Wedding

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.
