Styled Shoot at Mack's Apples in Londonderry

This week I had the privilege to be a part of a styled shoot with a dozen creatives and business owners. The photographers I shot alongside have become friends, and there is nothing better than creating with people you love to work with. I thrive in collaboration, so I feel blessed to have experiencing like this one.

Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot. Thank you to the talented vendors who made everything look absolutely gorgeous and the couples who were willing to do anything 6 photographers asked them to do. You made our jobs easy.

An Elopement at City Hall in Portsmouth, New Hampshire

Vince and Jackie knew early on that they wanted to elope. It had become a bit of a tradition in Jackie's family. Her parents eloped as well. Vince and Jackie loved the romance of a true elopement so, on a perfectly sunny day in August, Vince and Jackie drove from New York to spend a few days in New Hampshire. On Monday morning, they headed to Portsmouth City Hall for the license and had an intimate private ceremony just a few hundred yards away from the doors of city hall. 

They invited me to capture the entire day--from the signing of the license, to the ceremony, to the walk around Portsmouth as husband and wife.  They included details that helped make this day so special. They had the letters they had written during their years of long-distance, Vince's dog tags, and shoes that help benefit Best Friends Animal Society--to represent their love for animals.

With every elopement I capture, I fall more in love with them. There is something so beautiful in the simplicity of it all.
