Stratham HIll Engagement Session

In all the years I’ve lived here, I’ve never done this before!

I’ve photographed many a time at Stratham Hill Park. I’ve lived on the seacoast for nearly 30 years. But this Stratham Hill Engagement Session was the first time I actually climbed the HILL part.

So THERE’S that tower they’re always talking about.

We planned for golden hour, but instead got some crazy textured clouds. But with the fantastic donuts and beer set up, and the SWEETEST DOGS EVER, I can’t imagine anything making this session better!

But it did get even better! We went UP the tower (I can manage heights, scarier while carrying my equipment for some reason) and then back down to the bottom of the hill to create some candlelit romance.

Congratulations on your engagement, Abby + Nick!
