We had the privilege of meeting Erin and Steve in Portsmouth, NH a few weeks back for their engagement session. They will be getting married in the south this November and wanted a photo session to capture a glimpse of their lives in New England and wished to take advantage of the beautiful backdrop in Rye Beach and Portsmouth. Steve spent summers on Rye Beach with his family, so of course you know that we always love when couples incorporate their personal histories into their photos. When we arrived to shoot around the incredible Heritage Houses on Strawberry Banke in Portsmouth, Erin mentioned that they were really nervous and had never done anything like this before. We assured them that we don't usually work with models, and that feeling nervous was totally normal. Little did we know just how incredibly photogenic these two are. I mean seriously, go back to the top and look through these photos again. Don't they look smashing?! We loved their little touches of having a beach picnic with Prosecco and their rad sunglasses. So much fun. They were troopers through the beach photos because although the light is gooey and lush, behind those cameras are coats, hats and mittens. It was freezing, so Erin and Steve also win the 'keeping their cool' award for looking so care free and warm in the chilly temps. Congrats, Erin and Steve, we know you will have an amazing wedding and we wish you all the best!
