Now this is was definitely an unposed and natural engagement session and I loved every minute of it! Before I agree to photograph any wedding– it’s so important that I’m able to connect with the couple on a personal level. Because that is the very first step in creating those awesome photographs that the couple will someday treasure. Additionally, I like to create those relationships with my couples that extend past the wedding day. And I’m blessed to say that, most of my couples I now have the honor of calling friends. And Holly and Adam are going to be no different.
Because of these budding relationships- we are able to create awesome images showcasing true personality. Loving a photograph goes so much deeper than just liking what you look like. You should look back at a photo and love remember what you felt like. When I’m working with a couple- I don’t focus on the getting the perfect photo. You know- those photos that are staged to perfection. Instead, I aim to provide images that their future grandchildren will look at and hopefully gain a little authentic insight into the relationship their grandparents had.
The couples that I work with are really quite freakin’ awesome! Meet Holly and Adam. Two cool cats with a pretty an awesome German Shepherd furbaby named Bane! (Who just happened to come along to their engagement session in Portsmouth!) We first met for drinks at a dog-friendly bar called the Gaslight. They welcomed Bane in and even gave him a bowl of ice water! How freakin’ cool is that?
Two things that impress me about these two is their true-to-self personalities and their ability to laugh with each other. They say that one’s best feature is their smile- and I have to agree. Holly and Adam’s smiles light up a room. (As you can see below) Because of their personalities- it was so easy to capture those true unposed and natural engagement photos that I love so much. The only downfall was the time of day we were shooting. Due to us having to reschedule their engagement session umpteen times (thank you New England Weather! LOL) we ended up having a mid-day session. But we made it work! (Though there are plans for us to meet up again for a sunset beach session sometime in the future! Whoohoo! I’ll hang out with these two anytime!)
So… why don’t I show you the pictures- and let you read more about these two sprinkled throughout the post below!
We were “set up”. Two people (who each knew one of us) thought that since we both had cancer, we would get along. Neither of us wanted to date anyone- we were both done with dating. I agreed as this was just to be friends. The night before we were going to meet Adam texted me to make sure our “date” was still on (insert annoyed face).

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.
