Before Kelly and Mike even booked us to photograph their wedding at the Mountain Top Inn & Resort in Vermont next year, Kelly expressed how important it was to them to have their engagement shoot done at their lakeside home on Millville Lake right here in New Hampshire. As lifelong New Englanders ourselves, we were thrilled with the idea, and even more so when she expressed that they wished to include their beautiful Golden Retriever, Riley.
When the day of their engagement shoot arrived, the weather could not have been anymore perfect. The temperature was warm, but not hot, and clouds sprinkled the sky but didn’t “rain on our parade!”
Riley greeted us with excitement when we arrived at their beautiful home right on the water, and she was just as eager as we were to get started! We explored the entire, private lake, even riding on their neighbor’s new boat to get to the beach — a fitting event since Mike had used their boat to propose to Kelly after his Plan A did not work out due to weather.
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, laughing with them more than we had ever laughed before at an engagement session, and just as the sun dipped behind the trees, we made it back for one more shot before we called it a night.
We are beyond excited to photograph their wedding next year, and if the fun we had at their engagement shoot is any indication, their wedding is sure to be an absolute blast!
Doesn’t this one look like it’s straight out of ‘The Notebook?’
