New Hampshire Wedding Photographers Getting Ready Gallery | NH Wedding Photographer

I thought I would share a small  photo gallery of some of the “getting ready” shots from past weddings. Most of the weddings were shot at local resorts or venues that offer a bridal suite or “getting ready” room. They are set up with mirrors and a bathroom. It is a great way for the wedding party to be together and to help the couple get ready. The level of stress grows as the wedding ceremony start time closes in. Most of the time there is a hair and makeup person in the mix. Sometimes there are guests at the wedding there also. They usually have more make up than any one person should own. Funny thing is, it seems that, for the most part, they only use a small percentage of it. The getting ready photo shoot is the time in which I take photos of the dress, shoes and any other details they bride or the bridal party might have. I have seen colorful sunglasses, matching purses and small gifts from rings to pearl bracelets. Here are a few of my favorite “getting ready” shots.  You should know that if I am your wedding photographer, I will make sure to capture this special and memorable part of your day. I will make sure to capture both the bridal and groom parties getting ready. From tuxes to dresses,  shoes to champagne toast, I will capture every moment.  I try to offer tips and wedding day feedback from time to time, if you are looking for that level of support. It can help a couple in small ways that they may not notice, until the day of the wedding and then they will tap into these little bits of knowledge that I provided. If you like my style and feel, we will work well together. If you are planing on getting married in 2016, contact me today! I have limited space left for Saturday weddings. If you are planing a wedding for 2017, I still have a few dates open, but I am starting to fill those up quickly, as well. Contact me via phone, 603-367-4657 or email. I look forward to hearing from you and answering any questions that you may have.

I started off this 2016 wedding season early. This was a last minute booking with a call on Friday and the wedding on that following Monday. It was a Leap Day wedding here in Manchester, New Hampshire. This young couple was married at city hall. They had a small group of friends and family in attendance. What a great way to get personal with all the guests. We had a great time together. Everyone got to take part in seeing the first look. Once I heard they were going to being seeing each other for the first time that day at the signing of the paperwork. I knew we had to set up a spot to have them have a first look. Manchester City Hall has a great private stairwell. I had the groom Allan stand with his back to his beautiful bride. She approached from the lower level and then he turned to see her there in her amazing wedding dress. Yes, they both had a few tears. After the short ceremony, we heading outside to create some artful bridal portraits. This is always one of my favorite parts of the day. They liked my style and let me direct them into many poses giving them a wide variety of photos in the end. Here are a few of my best picks from their wedding day photography.

These images are from a two alarm fire at a small apartment building in North Conway, NH 03860. The building was on fire from in the attic. By the time I got there the crew had already cleared the building and were about to fight the blaze. The smoke was thick and black for about 30 mins then the fire busted through the roof. I would guess that the flames could be seen for no more then 5 mins before they were extinguished. 16 residents had to be relocated and the building is not boarded shut. This small “inn” turned apartment complex is a local landmark at the cross roads of a busy intersection.  All occupants are safe, but in need of housing. I was able to capture these images on the scene. Please contact Joe for any publication requests.

Off all the DIY weddings I have photographed this was by far the one with the most involvement by family and friends.  The wedding was at the brides parents home in historic Chester, New Hampshire.  They set the big white tent up in the horse corral. What better why to have your wedding then with your childhood horse near by? We entered the tent by passing thought the bard and past the horses. The mother of the bride made the cake the cookies and so many small details that made this the DIY wedding of anyones dreams. With friends and family in attendance the wedding went off without a snag. Happy wedding day to all Bronwyn & Andrew. View the photo gallery here

Why do I focus on wedding photography? What is not to love about being at 25+ weddings each summer. It is all about love. Family friends and couples together and in love. Sharing memories creating new ones. Who would not want to be part of this most happiest of days? I get to see this world from the inside and the outside. I get to be behind the scenes and right out in front of the crowd. Being a wedding photographer is not for the shy or introverted person. Sure most of the day we as photographers are quite in the wings hiding out in the shadows. Then there is the times when we need to capture the marriage ceremony, the first kiss. the parent dances and the cake cutting. Weddings are my joy.

New Hampshire Wedding Photographers Blog: 216

In the small town of Jackson, N.H., is a resort named, The Wentworth. It is a well known Inn in the area and is snug right in the middle of town. The Wentworth is a popular wedding venue in the Mount Washington Valley. The ceremony that I attended there was in a small field next to the venue. The Wentworth gazebo is set at the base of Jackson Falls, a popular tourist destination, and is a beautiful settling for a wedding. The guests were arriving and made their way to the site. The couple was dressed and ready to, say, “I do,” and begin their celebration of their new life together. The parents, grandparents and other family members stayed at the site, after the wedding, for some photos. Then, the bridal party jumped in to a limousine so we could drive around and work on some photos at a few special places that they had in mind.

We first went to the famous, Jackson Covered Bridge. It is an old, wooden bridge that was build in 1876. It is also known as Honeymoon Bridge or Covered Bridge No. 51. On the way back to the hotel,we stopped at the in town pond to capture the couple in a reflection. As they came out of the bus, Mark, the groom, headed right over a couple that was already there that were fishing. He talked to them for a bit and then I saw them handing over their fishing gear to the bride and groom! I was surprised and impressed that he was so bold as to ask to borrow their gear for some photos. I love working with such confidence and creative couples. I was able to take a few shots of them fishing. the groom even hooked one! We stopped at the stone bridge and the Jackson Library for a few emotive photographs before heading to the reception. They danced, cut their cake and rocked out to the live band, Gazpacho. (They were a fabulous wedding band, and highly I recommend them.)

It was a beautiful day and a day full of laughter and love. Here are a few of my favorite photos from the day. Thanks Jen & Mark for the great day! It was an honor to work with you to capture the joy and beauty of your day!

Kennett High School Senior Portrait Session With Maddy | New Hampshire Photographers Blog

Kennett High School Senior Portrait Session With Maddy | New Hampshire Photographers Blog

Last week, I met with Maddy and her aunt, to create some senior photos, as well as capturing a memory of this time in her life. I had never met Maddy until the day the shoot, and we began at her family home. We used the tall grass next to her home to capture the first few photos. Then we moved to some colored leaves to capture the beautiful fall color. In just a short time, we moved on to my property just down the road from her home. I like to toss a cool chair in a nature environment and use that as a added prop for some shots. I get a lot of comments about my chair photos and they have become one of my “signature shots.” When we were done with the chair shots, we set up on a nearby stone wall. I had her aunt, Lee, hold a light for me to take a few head shots. It is always nice to involve the teens family in the shoot. It makes for a very fun experience. Thanks, Leigh for all of your help! Once home, I loaded the session into my computer and went to work in Lightroom (a popular photo editing software.) I aim for between 30-40 finished edited portraits and I ended up delivering sixty two images, when all the photos were done. Maddy, I hope your final year of school is the best you can make it! Good luck as you head off in to the world.

Wedding In Poland, Maine | Wolf Cove Inn Wedding Venue | New Hampshire Wedding Photographers Blog

Wedding In Poland, Maine | Wolf Cove Inn Wedding Venue | New Hampshire Wedding Photographers Blog

New Hampshire Wedding Photographers Blog: 198

It was a beautiful warm day in Poland, Maine. (Yes! There is a Poland, Maine!) The couple was like most others. Young, in love and surrounded by family and friends. There was one thing about this couple that was different then most others. they had traveled over a thousand miles to say “I do.”. The couple had flown to Maine to have their wedding at this great Bed & Breakfast The Wolf Cove Inn.

Like most days, I packed up my gear and headed off early in the day. I had said goodbye to my loving family and traveled into Maine to meet another. Being that the couple was from Texas,they had a small, select group of family and friends with them on this special day. We were able to do a “first look” shoot. just before the wedding. I love doing these, as it makes the wedding time more relaxed by getting the nervousness of them seeing each other for the first time, out of the way. Part of my wedding photography style is creating photos that tell a story from the day, at the same time, creating a mood of being together – yet being separate people. I love to honor the wholeness of the union, as well as the wholeness of the individual. It makes my work stand out and takes partnership and equality to the next level, in comparison to a more “traditional” style wedding photography, which often times carries an energy of the woman being subservient, or frail. I love two show the bride and groom as equally powerful and ready to step into this new chapter in their lives.

Before a first look I try to create at lest one photo that is moody or something not tipical of most wedding photography. This time it was the boat house photo. The photo was taken just before the “first look” photos were taken. The couple could not see each other. I wanted to capture the energy of loving anticipation between them. I first had the groom take his place in the boat house. I then walked the bride out and down the stairs. I reminded him not to look over in her direction. He had a wall to his right so she was out of view. They could hear each other and talked a bit. I had to walk out on to the small boat dock to take the photo and capture this moment.

Most people do not realize the thought and creativity involved in the work of a professional wedding photographer. Vision, timing, confidence, great effort and extreme focus to detail is paramount. I intentionally capture the uniqueness of the each couple and instead of taking the “cookie-cutter” wedding photos, I promise the couple a uniqueness that will make their photos stand out and carry incredible emotion.

I love what I do and the couples that I work with are all special and I never forget the moment of fulfillment, when a photo like this, goes from conception of an idea to… art. I am grateful to the couples who are willing to trust me and work on a combined vision. It is always an honor and this Maine wedding was no exception.

Lake Ossipee Senior Portraits | Camp Calumet Photo Session | New Hampshire Photographers Blog

Lake Ossipee Senior Portraits | Camp Calumet Photo Session | New Hampshire Photographers Blog

New Hampshire Wedding Photographers Blog: 199

Traveling for things you want is a big part of life, for most people. Today, a mother and daughter drove four hours from Connecticut to to meet me in New Hampshire, to create senior portraits. Emma, the daughter, wanted to have her photos done in a very special place, from her childhood and teens years. She not only attended Camp Calumet, in Ossipee, New Hampshire, as a girl, but then returned as a teen to work at the camp as a lifeguard. Not only was the location a place filled with childhood memories, but it was also breathtakingly beautiful! There were had so many spots to shoot from. Ossipee lake with the mountains in the background. We had a forest full of colored leaves and an adorable wooden bridge with a dry river under it, to choose from for photos. She really wanted a photo on the lifeguard stand, where she worked and created so many memories.  As we made photo memories of this time in her life, I could tell that it was truly bittersweet for Emma and her mother. I felt honored to hold the space for such powerful emotions. I was hoping to not only capture the beauty of the area, but also capture the feelings of joy and nostalgia of the experience of her returning there. I loved Emma’s ideas and the props she brought, such as a beloved teddy bear from her childhood. She also brought some sheet music that she wanted in a photo with or laying sheet music on the grass to be photographed with. This photo shoot with Emma and her mother truly moved me. It was such a special place, because Emma felt so happy revisiting such a special place. The photo shoot, in itself, was a new and powerful memory for Emma and her mother. It was such an honor to capture this moment in time of growing up and moving forward and letting go. It was not only a photo shoot. It was a rite of passage and one that I will never forget facilitating for this beautiful family.

Here is a sneak peak of just a few photos from Emma’s day. Thank you, Emma and Jean. I hope the day was just as special for you as it was for me.

If you have a senior who needs their portraits done, contact me to ensure you are put on my fall schedule! Don’t miss this short window of time with the beautiful foliage.
Thank you for reading, Joe

With summer ending and school starting back up, it can mean many things to many people. For teens and their parents, many of them begin the important search for a photographer to  take their senior portraits. Many people see senior portraits as one of the most important photo shoots of their lives. One thing that is so fun about working with the young adults is the interaction with the parents and their children. Many have not had a photo shoot before.  It is great to capture a few photos and show them the back of the cameras LCD screen. I feel it builds confidence for me to show them their photos as we go along in the photo shoot. This past week, I had senior photo shoot. The colors are so vibrant right now, finding a natural and beautiful background is easy. Being in New Hampshire, it is so easy to find amazing locations with water, trees, mountains or some old buildings with cool doors windows and other some what hidden features. I have a chair collection and I brought two of them for this shoot. I had Rylie pose with the brown chair for a few photos in this amazing setting in Conway. The sky was full of crazy clouds and the sun was starting to set. This made for some really nice portraits.

Book your senior portraits now before all the color is gone. The prices for a senior portrait session is $295 and will leave you will 30-40 images on a flash drive.

Intimate Family Wedding At Christmas Farm Inn & Spa, Jackson NH | New Hampshire Wedding Photographer

Intimate Family Wedding At Christmas Farm Inn & Spa, Jackson NH | New Hampshire Wedding Photographer

New Hampshire Wedding Photographer Blog: 190

This summer I witnessed many different styles of weddings. One common thread that was present at each wedding was love from family and friends. I photographed a small intimate wedding at the Christmas Farm Inn & Spa, in Jackson NH. There was a total of 13 people at the ceremony included the bride and groom. It did not matter the number of people because the amount of love was at maximum capacity. When i first met Melissa, I saw right away she was an easy going and fun bride. What made it even better was that her soon-to-be- husband was all about what ever she wanted to do for photos. Before the wedding started, we did a “first look.” That is a time for the groom to see his bride for the first time that day or the first time in her dress. Before the first look, we had them together using a small old barn as a space to be together, yet not see each other yet. Then we picked a nice spot on the lawn near some trees and a small arbor. Once the couple had joined they chatted for a bit and took some candid photos. Then, we made some bride portraits. I love to use the doors or large buildings, as a way to take advantage of negative space. I feel, at times, these moody photos add a feeling of togetherness even know the couple is posed away from each other. Once the “I Do’s” were said, we headed down the street to Jackson Falls for some photos. After we came back to the venue at the Christmas Farm Inn for dinner. Dinner was so good and a nice dinning atmosphere, but before dinner we did a few shots at the inn itself. Here are some of my favorite picks!. Please comment below if you enjoy the photos. What one is your favorite? Also I would love to ask a favor of you. With all the ways people can help each other you could truly help me is by letting any one you know that is getting married of my work. Maybe you are getting married soon and are looking for photographers? I love to work is couples plaining their wedding and making all the couples wishes come true.

Chagnon Wedding | New Hampshire Wedding Slide Show

With the New Hampshire wedding session winding down, I have time to do the special things I wanted to do all year. Like spend time with my family, hike rest & begin getting geared up for next year.

One way that I rest is to go over wedding photos once again and build slide shows from some of my favorite wedding shoots. This wedding is one I will return to again and again to gain inspiration.

Here is 124 photos together into a wedding day slide.

Gratitude For a Friend at His Wedding | Burlington Vermont Wedding Day Photos

Gratitude For a Friend at His Wedding | Burlington Vermont Wedding Day Photos

Ever weekend or nearly every one this summer I was at a wedding. I saw the happiest of days for many young couples. I was witness to the joining of two families ever few days. It is truly amazing to be part of each and every wedding. Being the photographer the day is spent always on the move and only at small moments here and there do you get the opportunity  to enjoy the bliss the couple and families are part of. Well that was until I had the opportunely to photograph a close friends wedding. Again another young couple and the joining of two families. The wedding was on a Sunday in the beautiful state of Vermont.  From the moment I had heard of the couples engagement I knew I would offer to shoot the wedding as my gift to the couple.
After returning home form a wedding the night before this weeing. I did what I always do on a multi wedding weekend. I transfered files from the SD cards. I charged batteries and gave my gear a quick whip down and made sure it was all in the bag before I headed of to bed.

The days was a beautiful fall early fall day. Crisp air and hot sun all in one. As I left my home and traveled the 160 miles I was taken up and over some great vistas and passes that took me over mountings and over rivers. As I neared the half way point and maybe what was the highest elevation on the trip. The clouds were closing in and I was looking for rain to hit my wind shield at any moment. It never did rain. I decided the other side of the valley and as I came down the clouds tined out the the amazing weather continued right thought the day.  This wedding was at the Town Hall in Shelburne, Vt. It was perfect for the couples vision and fit so well into the wedding ceremony.  The wedding was short and sweet. There was two emotional reads form friends then the couple exchanged their vows and had their kiss and the families became one.

We headed out side for some photos and the hall was a great place for that. The pillars on the front of the building provided a great framing for the family photos. We headed back inside to remove the decorations they had set up and get ready to head off to the reception. I had them pose for a few photos in the hall and as we headed out I had them pose for a great shot outside again using the hall as the backdrop. I really had a great day being at the wedding and being their photographer.

We headed over to the brides families shop. Did i say they make amazing chocolates? Well they do. It was an amazing room. So clean and fresh. The colors were perfect and the size was a great fit for the wedding party and their guests. We ate a great meal. They cut the cake and yes we ate chocolate. They had set out a great selection of  truffles for us to sample and sample we did. Thanks again to Bijou Fine Chocolate for hosting this special day for the couple and off curse your daughter.  Here are a few photos form the hall.

Rainy Day Wedding At The Zorvino Winery Venue | Southern New Hampshire Wedding Photography

Rainy Day Wedding At The Zorvino Winery Venue | Southern New Hampshire Wedding Photography

With all the planning that goes into a wedding, the one thing you can never fully plan for is weather. The couple picks the wedding venue months, even years, ahead. As the date gets closer and you see the weather is looking to be bad. Bad meaning rain. There is only so much you can do about it. Well the Zorvino Winery wedding venue in Sandown, NH., did all they could to try and save this day. They even sent a crew out to try and dry the chairs the guests would be using. It was just too wet. Off and on again rain moved this wedding to inside the venue. At Zorvino it did not matter. As beautiful as the grounds are, the interior of the winery is just as nice.  Once the wedding ceremony had finished and the couple was officially married, we did dodge some rain drops and heading outside to get some bridal portraits. With the weather the way it was and time moving closer to the introduction of the couple and the start of the reception, we moved fast and were able to create a great amount of imagery. Here are just a few of my picks to share for today. One of the couples daughter and one of the boys in the wedding party wanted to do a jump shot. I think they nailed it! Happy wedding day and cheers to many happy years together, Stacey & Mike.

I love when I am able to return to a wedding venue I have already worked at. Knowing the ins and outs of the location is a bonus, for sure. I was lucky to return to a location that I love, The Indian Head Resort, in beautiful Lincoln, NH.. The venue holds up to 150 people and hosts weddings during all four seasons of New England’s changing weather. This wedding was with a great couple whom I connected with and had a great time with. We had their engagement shoot this summer and we really hit it off. With the chemistry and positive attitude of this couple, we had a great day and their wedding and the photos that captured it exceeded expectations. It was a hot, humid summer day, but it cooled off in the evening, just in time for some dancing. I love my work and I truly enjoyed spending time with this couple and their loving family. Here is a few of my favorite photos from the bridal session. Congratulations Justin & Mary! May you multiply and never divide!

New Hampshire Wedding at The Wentworth Inn Venue in Jackson | NH Photographers Sneak Peek

New Hampshire Wedding at The Wentworth Inn Venue in Jackson | NH Photographers Sneak Peek

With the end of summer wedding season in New Hampshire about to start rolling, I was so happy to meet back up with a couple from an engagement shoot a few weeks ago. See some of the engagement photos here. I wanted to share a few photos from that day. These two were my picks from this wedding. The photos are below, but first a quick story.  The sun was shinning. The wedding was outside in a field next to beautiful The Wentworth Inn, in the village of Jackson, N.H.. It was like a lot of outdoor weddings. It was short and sweet. The rings were passed. There was a kiss,the couple was announced and with that, we all headed off to do some photos. We hit the old covered bridge down the road. We had a few poses there, then we headed back to the Inn. On the way back I was ahead of the limo that was transporting the wedding party. I saw a small pond at the public park and with quick thinking, I jumped out of my car and flagged the limo to stop. I asking the bride and groom if they wanted to do a reflecting photo near the water. The timing was great. There was a couple there fishing. The groom walked up asked them something and they handed their fishing poles to the bride and groom.  As you can see from the photos, it was a great spot for some photos and a nice little fishing hole. The groom hooked one.

Congratulations Jen & Mark. Cheers to many years of happiness and joy.

Perfect Weather For An Engagement Session | Engagement Photos In Portsmouth New Hampshire

Perfect Weather For An Engagement Session | Engagement Photos In Portsmouth New Hampshire

After days of being near 90 degrees, it was a nice break to see it in the low 80’s. As a family, we took a road trip down to Portsmouth, NH. We walked around the city a bit, poking our heads in and out of the small shops. We stopped in at Bull Moose Records and looked over their vinyl record collection for trip down memory lane. We found our way back to the car and headed over to Prescott Park for a late afternoon picnic. Prescott Park was the location that the couple and I had decided on to meet for their pre-wedding engagement photos.  I feel that it is almost a necessity to have a photo session before the wedding. It is a great way to not only get to know the couple that you are going to spend 6-8 hours with, but it gets them in front of your camera and removes some of that shy, almost awkward feeling of the start to most photos shoots.  Most young couples have not had photos done, or at least not for a few years, with the last ones being high school senior portraits, in many cases.

Prescott Park was full – I mean very full of people. They had a play, Peter Pan, starting  soon . It was quite a production! I had a few minute to locate the couple and find a quiet spot to chat with them about what we were going to do over the next hour, or so.  First off, I noticed the couple was very comfortable being photographed. He was very happy to pose with her and be funny and open and was willing to pose for as many photos as she wanted. Many times, the groom-to-be isn’t really into being photographed. It was nice that they were both comfortable, positive and fun to be around. It makes my job so much easier!  We moved around of the two gardens. posed for some shots near the trees and the fountains. Then, they did a wardrobe change and we moved to the street for a few poses. We found a brick building in the second garden and that was all it took to finish up this portrait session. It was a great day, with a great couple! I am honored to be their photographer and I am so excited to capture the beauty, joy and excitement on their wedding day!

Senior Portrait Season In New Hampshire | Kennett High School Class of 2016 Seniors

Senior Portrait Season In New Hampshire | Kennett High School Class of 2016 Seniors

Schools are almost back in session. With that, comes a new year of seniors that need their photos taken for the yearbook and for a keepsake of their accomplishment of making it to the end of their schooling.  Last season.  I had the pleasure to meet and photograph Madison. She was a bit shy and nervous when we first met, which is to be expected. She brought her mom with her and we starting chatting, and Madison had time to get more comfortable when we discussed what she was looking for in her photos. The rest is photogenic history. Her senior portraits were due the next week, after our session. She had put off the photos until that last minute, which was no problem. It was cold outdoors and we made use of my indoor studio for most of her session.  We spent two hours taking many photos, so she had tons to choose from. Her Mom assisted her with a wardrobe change half way through the the session, so she could have two very different looks and style, that reflected the different sides of her personality. Here is a small selection from Madison’s portrait session.
