She thought it was just A Walk Down Memory Lane

NH Proposal Photography

She thought it was just A Walk Down Memory Lane… But it was really a direct path to their future! This Summertime NH proposal was fantastically orchestrated by the groom-to-be!

He reached out to me about a week before their planned trip up to visit his parents. They’d met during their time at Phillips Exeter Academy, and visiting home seemed like a good time to take an alumni walk around town!

Little did she know that along the way they’d ‘stumble’ over an engagement ring, champagne, roses, and a whole new set of plans to make – for a wedding!

As they made their way towards the agreed upon spot, I hung out by the dog park and pretended to photograph the dogs and their humans. I let them know what was up, so I didn’t seem like some creepy stalker, and when the moment actually happened, we could hear them clapping and shouting congratulations from the park! ?❤️

After everyone’s nerves settled (mine included, proposals are so fun but definitely a little nerve wracking in the not giving it away before it’s time category) we wandered back through their old campus stomping grounds for some quick ‘just engaged’ photos!

Congratulations, you two!

Emily & Adam: A Queer Elopement at Wells Reserve at Laudholm

Emily and Adam had the most perfect early spring queer elopement at Wells Reserve at Laudholm. Just a week earlier we’d had a foot of snow, but it melted away just in time for this beautiful ceremony. Eloping at Wells Reserve at Laudholm is a great way to celebrate your love with your partner in a beautiful and secluded setting.
