Lauren and Ryan invited me to their Beacon Hill neighborhood for a winter engagement session. Maybe it would even snow, Lauren had hoped. And snow it did! Between the never-ending snow in January and misaligned schedules, we never were able to make that winter portrait happen. So we rescheduled for early summer, and decided to meet at Flag Hill Winery in NH, a place none of us had been but had driven by many times.
Having your portrait taken can be awkward at first. I totally get that. Engagement sessions are great practice for getting accustomed to what it's like being in front of the lens and make that part of the wedding day a piece of cake. Such was the case with Lauren and Ryan. I feel so lucky to have had the chance to chat in person with this pair, hear more about their plans, be a little silly and capture the two of them interacting.
We were treated to a beau-ti-ful evening with lovely sun and occasional cloud cover, and just the right amount of breeze. Together we explored the pretty grounds, and even met some of the farm friends: families of pigs, chickens and geese (until I, oops, backed into the electric fence). As the sun began to disappear behind the trees, we witnessed a parade of turkeys and even a deer grazing in the field beyond. Magic.
See you two at Newagen in the fall!
