This was my first Engagement Session at the Fells Estate! And it didn’t disappoint!! What has me even more excited, is that Sarah and Jon will also be having their wedding there next year!
This venue is amazing. And the thing is… we didn’t even begin to truly explore all the grounds and gardens that this place offers. I’m hoping that on their wedding day, we will have some time to explore and create even more magical photos!!
The Fells, also known as the Hay Estate, was originally the summer home of John Milton Hay, a 19th-century American statesman. It is located in Newbury, New Hampshire.
John Hay served the United States in various capacities in a career that lasted over 40 years. He was Abraham Lincoln’s private secretary during the Civil War and later a diplomat and a journalist. He became United States Secretary of State in 1898.
So How cool is that?… To be able to not only visit but photograph at a location so rich in American History!
Sarah and Jon were so much fun to hang with! We first met at Bubba’s, a local Bar Restaurant before heading over for our Engagement Session!
These two make one good looking couple! And it was fun to have their fur babies along with us too!
“We actually went to high school together but never officially met until after college!”
“Jon has had a love affair within Indian since he discovered it and got me hooked on our very first date! Needless to say we still have our weekly date nights at our favorite Indian Restaurant!”
“Jon took me to his favorite country, Switzerland! After a long walk to the top of a mountain, he discovered the castle he wanted to propose in was closed due to construction (he was so mad haha I had no idea why :P) So we walked aimlessly for what felt like hours upon end until he found an impromptu location further down the river that was so serene and perfect and got down on one knee! Best Day Ever <3 “
“We are the definition of Homebodies. Love to travel abroad but when we are home, we are H-O-M-E <3 Being with our puppies is our favorite pastime!”
Jon loves all things cars and motorcycles while Sarah loves all things DIY.
“Great! Our wedding planner has made ALL the difference!”
“Wedding Planner = Necessity! Just go with the flow and enjoy every moment 🙂 “
Bright, white, airy, full of love!

Kris was the calm in the storm that I found wedding planning to be. Kris held my hand, encouraged me and also made me laugh when I didn’t feel like laughing. She is organized, professional and is the absolute best at what she does"

When our wedding was postponed due to COVID a mere 3 days before our date, she called us immediately and showered us with well wishes...and worked with us to make sure we were able to secure her for our new date in August.
