This adorable couple wanted a quintessential, rustic NH scene as the backdrop for their engagement session, so we could think of no better place than in the fields of a gorgeous local apple orchard in Londonderry, NH at sunset.
Nicole and Gil’s personalities connect beautifully with the New England landscape as they are both extremely down-to-earth, genuine and fun to be around. And right from the start, their chemistry was undeniable while being photographed together!
Nicole and Gil met at work five years ago when introduced by a mutual friend. Flash forward a few years to a beautiful family vacation out West where Gil proposed to Nicole after walking with her on the skywalk at the Grand Canyon — talk about a stunning backdrop, right?! Nicole shared that it felt so surreal and beautiful to hear Gil reminisce about their relationship amidst this stunning view that she began to walk away, unsure that he was actually proposing! But when Gil got down on one knee, she realized it was in this very moment that they would begin their commitment to a lifetime of love together.
We told them that while it usually takes a few tries for couples to get into a rhythm when walking together, they fell right into step on the first take. And all Gil had to do was say any word in Nicole’s ear to get her to smile and laugh.
While Mack’s Apple Orchard is vast and gorgeous, we didn’t have to explore too far because Nicole and Gil’s love stole the show. And we’re so glad we decided to wait an extra few days for their engagement shoot because unlike the rainy, cold day on which it was supposed to take place, we were gifted the most beautiful golden sunset on this night, fitting for a couple deserving of light as bright and bold as their love story.
Scott and I are so looking forward to capturing their beautiful wedding in a couple months, and you can bet that we will be sure to share the love and laughter right here on our blog when we do!
For now, enjoy this preview of their journey to a lifetime of happiness.
