It doesn’t get much better on a cold, snow covered day than having George & Martha’s house all to yourselves to roam about and photograph a couple who makes you laugh through frozen fingertips and toes.

It’s wedding week for Grace & Taylor!  Cannot wait to see these two say ‘I do”!  We were able to sneak in an engagement shoot just in time.  Throw in some puppy kisses from their adorable blood hound, a glistening sunset, the backdrop of Londonderry’s manor house and we have the perfect Autumn day.

There two really are the sweetest pair.  They were guests at a wedding I shot a couple of years ago.  I remember so clearly, setting up some bridal party shots when I turned and saw them in an embrace and snapped a couple of frames.  It was tender and playful and I’m the lucky photographer who gets […]
