Let’s see – it all started with…
Brian & Liz. I met Brian through the Exeter Chamber of Commerce and when he and Liz had their fabulous Portsmouth wedding I was honored to be a part of it. Brian’s brother, Matt was a groomsman and his wife Sharon was a bridesmaid. A very pregnant bridesmaid it turned out, but she’s so tiny I never even noticed. So imagine my surprise just a few months later when she contacted me about doing her little boy Jackson’s newborn photos! More recently, Jackson became a big brother and I got together again with this beautiful family for Julia’s newborn family photos.
When I saw Sharon that day, she mentioned her sister was (about to be) engaged and that she’d be sure to send her in a beeline to my direction once they picked a date. True to her word, a few short weeks later this appeared in my inbox:
You were highly recommended by my sister Sharon. I was wondering what your availability would be for September 19th 2015.
And I’m so happy to say that my availability status was available!
Catherine and Ryan met me downtown for a drink and we discussed the ins and outs of their budget, their needs, and their desires and came up with a custom package that fulfilled their requirements. That package included a mini engagement shoot so we met up for a quicky on a Friday afternoon 😉
The magic that we produced in a short 20 minutes was amazing! They were ready to hit the ground running (well sauntering at a leisurely romantic pace actually) but completely into each other, and excited for what we were doing. I couldn’t ask for more!
Exeter makes such a quintessential New England backdrop, don’t you think?!
My favorites. I love when my couples trust me enough that they don’t question when I ask them to sit down in a patch of who knows what. Ok, ALSO my favorite. Because just.. WOAH. Look at it!!
I’m so excited for our next date you two!
