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.

Alyssa + John | Currier Museum Wedding

Currier Museum Wedding NH Images Photography & Video

Alyssa and John were married on June 9th, with a ceremony and reception at the Currier Museum in Manchester, New Hampshire.

 

Both Alyssa and John are attorneys—which is actually how they met. In fact, both of their families are filled with fellow law professionals, and it was Alyssa’s Aunt Helen who used that connection to get these two together. She set them up at a new lawyer function, and the rest, as they say, is history.

 

Currier Museum Wedding Photography

We were impressed with the venue that Alyssa and John chose for their wedding. Weddings at the Currier Museum are a treat for Manchester wedding photographers. The art museum was a unique choice, but it reflected their personalities perfectly. With plenty of nooks and crannies that my second shooter, Bruce Preston, and I were able to take advantage of for portraits. Every corner inspired creativity and the colors from the artwork provided a beautiful backdrop. The museum has a wide, handsome stone staircase they use as an aisle to the altar. Alyssa descended the staircase, making for some dramatic, beautiful pictures of her grand entrance.

 

One image, in particular of the two of them on the stairs was so special. The light fell just right, so that it looked like they were posing for a romantic movie poster. It honestly looked like a spotlight had fallen on the two of them. Add to that the fact that they couldn’t take their eyes off of each other, and the romantic ambiance was complete.

 

Alyssa & John, thank you for letting us be part of your summer wedding celebrations. It was an honor to provide your wedding photography. We enjoyed getting to see such a unique wedding and know that the two of you will continue to walk your own paths together.

One of the joys of being a part of weddings is going to unique locations. That was certainly the case for Angie & Bryce's wedding at Linekin Bay Resort in Boothbay Harbor, Maine. The couple met in college while attending the University of Maine and after a short engagement planned a fun filled day by the sea.

Samantha Allen from NH Images did an amazing job in capturing all the imagery from getting ready through the reception. Here are a few of the images from that day.
