I always get excited when my past clients approach me to photograph their other celebrations. In a way, it proves to me that my efforts to get to know my couples and make them comfortable before their photo shoot are actually working. Sarah and Jonathan are one of those awesome couples that I got to know and bond with. I photographed their engagement session at The Fells Estate and recently they asked me to be their wedding photographer as well. And of course, I said YES! I love working with my past clients again. It feels like I am just meeting up with my old friends. And Sarah and Jonathan’s wedding was no different.
The Fells on Lake Sunapee is a breathtaking venue. It’s just got such a romantic vibe to it, which perfectly fit my couple’s vibe too. Speaking of romance, their proposal story was laced with romance (and some quick thinking too!). Jonathan planned on proposing to Sarah at a castle at the top of a mountain in Switzerland. But when his plan failed due to some construction work at the castle, he quickly thought about his next move. After walking around aimlessly for some time, Jonathan found an impromptu location further down a river. The location was so serene and perfect, and making good use of the opportunity, Jonathan got down on one knee. And the rest is history!
My couple’s wedding at The Fells, also known as the Hay Estate, was an intimate affair with less than 75 guests in attendance. Sarah and Jonathan chose to get married in the side yard which came with a distant view of Lake Sunapee. And oh man, that was gorgeous! Safe to say, I loved my workday and just couldn’t stop taking photos.
Sarah wore her grandmother’s ring as her something old, and I thought that was such a beautiful tribute to her grandma. One of the most memorable moments of the day was when I took photos of the couple next to an antique car owned by Jonathan’s dad. It was heartwarming to see how both my bride and groom honored their family members through these sweet little gestures. Jonathan’s family has a deeper connection with cars. The groom’s grandfather was friends with Henry Ford, who helped the family get into the auto sales industry. Jonathan’s family has owned car dealerships ever since, and that’s how Jonathan developed an interest and loves everything auto and motorcycles.
My charming couple’s reception was super chic, simple, and fun. They had a portable SpeakEasy Bar which was absolutely adorable, and they also had a very cool balloon art display to use as a photo backdrop for their’ sign in book’.
Sarah and Jonathan, I loved being a part of your elegant wedding. And I was super excited to work with you both again! Thank you for making me a part of these special moments in your life. I wish you both lots of love, fun, and happiness ahead.

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.
