What a gorgeous day with beautiful pink and magenta accents that made for some amazing wedding photography by NH Images. The cake also incorporated the beautiful pink flowers. The reception was a fun filled night with plenty of dancing! Congrats to our newly married couple!

3 Things I learned from my blended family wedding

Posted by Peter Clayman on Fri, Apr 24, 2015 @ 10:13 PM

On Feb 21, 2015 I married the love of my life Holly and it was a packaged deal. Holly was previously married and has 2 great kids ages 5 and 7. I was previously married before and have a total of 3 kids who range in age from 6 to 15.

Blended Family Wedding Photo

Our wedding day was great, but getting there wasn't always smooth. This was not just a wedding for us, but a wedding for our whole family and we wanted to include the kids throughout the ceremony and celebration. My thoughts were as such...Will the kids get ready without a fight? Will the youngest ones going to make a scene in the middle of the ceremony...will they dump our unity sand all over the place and have a sand fight...will we get any family pictures that we could look back on and say...hey we kinda look good in pictures (especially for pictures since I am a professional photographer). The answer to all of that is that reality ended up being awesome. So through this process I have learned 3 things from my blended family wedding that I would like to share with you.

  1. Relay your thoughts, feelings and concerns to your wedding vendors. You hired professionals for a reason and they will help you keep things in check. Many times I have seen (when I am shooting a wedding) where the kids will listen to me more than a parent and it works out fine.

  2. Enjoy the day! If you enjoy the day your kids will enjoy the day and that goes for everything in life...kids will follow (whether we like it or not) the attitude that is given off by the adults.

  3. Let it go (in my best frozen singing voice)! If the kids scream, cry, barf, disobey let it go (yes all of that did happen with us)...its about the union of us as well as our families.

Meg & Jay ~ Omni Mount Washington Hotel ~ Wedding Photography

Posted by Peter Clayman on Fri, Feb 13, 2015 @ 07:46 PM

I received a call just a few weeks ago from Meg telling me that she and her mate Jay were going to elope at the Omni Mount Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods, NH. It was going to take place on a Thursday and it would be just the two of them.

bride and groom

One of my favorite type of weddings to shoot are those who elope. There are many reasons, but I just love the intimacy that goes along with just 2 people tying the knot. The other reason is that we have plenty of time for whatever the bride and groom want...and we went all over the property with Meg & Jay.

When I started I was able to get a few images of Meg as she was finishing up getting ready...then it was quickly off for the ceremony...Jay was waiting patiently by the Presidential Foyer area of the hotel (where the ceremony was going to take place)...accompanying Jay was little Fiona...Meg & Jay's sweet little dog who was a part of the “bridal party” dressed in her pink :)

 bride and groom

The ceremony had the traditional vows and rings...but it also had a unity candle and wine box ceremony (inside the box there is a bottle of wine along with 2 love letters to be opened in the future). After the ceremony it was off for a sleigh ride through woods...literally...a romantic ride through the snow around the property...a great way to kick off a marriage!

 bride and groom

After we warmed up a bit we were off to do pictures on the grounds...we were able to catch the sunset hitting the mountains (it makes the mountains turn almost pink) as a great way to send our couple...into the sunset :) We wish Meg & Jay all the happiness in the world!

4 Keys & 5 Questions to hiring the right Photographer/Film Maker

Posted by Peter Clayman on Tue, Jan 20, 2015 @ 04:21 PM

So you just got engaged...congrats to you and yours! Now its time pick your wedding date and select a venue. Once those items have been squared away most people will now start working on selecting the various vendors (photo, video, DJ, band, florist, etc) that are needed. One of the first things people take care is the photography and video. So you jump online and do some quick research and schedule the face to face appointments.  

bride and groom

So many times couples have come into the studio and have said the following things to me: “your our first meeting so we don't know what to ask”, “we've never done this before (being married), so we don't know what we should ask or say”...although those are fair statements...my strong recommendation to you is be prepared to have a consultation before the actual consultation.   

4 steps to take before your consultation:

Before going into a consultation with a photographer/videographer make sure that:

1. you have seen their work and love it – from their website, Facebook and Pinterest

2. Read up on any reviews...what do other couples think of the company

3. Set a budget – What is your balance between the investment and the importance of quality work

4. Have an idea of what you are looking for in terms of coverage and final product. Are you looking to keep things basic (just the files) or are you looking for albums, canvases, etc. The more focused you are the easier it will be to find the right person or company for you.

Once your at the consultation:

5 real world questions to ask during the meeting -

1. What happens in case of an emergency? Specifically what are your emergency plans? - this is important to know the company you are dealing with has thought this out and has a logical plan. If the company doesn't have a solid plan, they may not be the right one for you.

2. If photo and video come from different companies how do you work together? - I always tell people you have 1 aisle to walk down and 1 aisle to walk back and you have at least 2 people trying to get the shot...it helps if photo and video have worked together many times and can work in harmony

3. What is your turn around time for delivering the photos and video after the wedding? - Asking this will help manage your expectations on when things are delivered.

4. Have you shot at my venue and if not please tell me how you would prepare yourself for our wedding? This will help you gain some insight into experience and planning

5. How do you manage the actual day of our wedding? What is your style for managing the day? - This will help you understand the demeanor of the person or company taking the images and does that fit your personality and get the job done.

I hope this helps you out...any questions please send me a message at [email protected] or call 603.566.7911. Enjoy the journey of planning for your special day :)

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. 

bride and groom

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.

bride and groom

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.
