As soon as I finished shooting this engagement session I was excited to blog about it! These two had the best chemistry together and it was a joy to celebrate this time in their life with them. If you like beer, golden summer nights and lots of genuine laughter…read on!
About the Couple
So, I’ve known Alexa since it’s middle school! I remember us doing a group project together – a Rube Goldberg Machine, at her parent’s house. Who knew where we’d be many years later! When she reached out to see if I could do her wedding, I was overjoyed and so excited to work with an old friend.
Alexa and Shawn met through a mutual friend, but ended up falling for each other when Shawn would bring his grandmother to doctor’s appointments where Alexa worked! After years of dating, they bought a house together in Weare, New Hampshire and Shawn proposed at Zorvino Vineyards. Together they enjoy working around the house, country concerts and spending time with family.
Engagement Photos at the New Hampshire Audubon
We decided to do their engagement photos at the NH Audubon in Concord, New Hampshire. It was the perfect spot because they love the woods and nature! I have to stress that if either of them were nervous, there’s no WAY I knew it. They were both so comfortable in front of the camera, leaning into some truly beautiful moments together with such ease.
We had so many great spots to shoot at the Audubon! Inside the wooded area were many trails and a really cool treehouse where these two enjoyed a few beers a la their future wedding venue. Then we ventured out to this big open field that was gorgeous at golden hour. I truly love how all of these came out!
