Before I met up with Matt & Jen I grabbed a quick lemonade when I arrived at Prescott Park in Portsmouth, New Hampshire as it was a true 85 degree summers day. The lady at the lemonade stand asked- “where you coming from”? Was it that obvious I was a mountain girl in a historical seacoast town? I replied North Conway, New Hampshire and followed to tell her I was here to shoot engagement photos. She “ooooo-ed” and “awwwww-ed” about it, and chatted up about how fun and happy it is to photograph couples during this special time. She was 100% right!
I finished up my lemonade and it was time to find Jen & Matt for our shoot! The two met at work about three years ago, and are planning a beautiful wedding in South Berwick, Maine. We wandered all over Prescott Park, down to the docks, and then Jen slipped into her flats and we took a walk around the small streets surrounding Strawberry Banke. Portsmouth has so much character, is very colorful, and is filled with fun backgrounds to work with! A photographers dream! Right in the beginning of our shoot Matt sarcastically asked- “this should take 10 minutes, right?” Jen and I laughed, and before we knew it an hour had gone by and we had a blast. I was hoping to treat them to a lemonade when we were finished but the lemonade lady had already packed up. Jen said with a little smile “well, I guess we’ll just have to find an adult beverage instead.” Congrats you two! Can’t wait to capture your special day this coming August!
