Portsmouth NH Engagement Photos

Portsmouth NH Engagement Photos

Shalini and Eric are the absolute sweetest couple. I was super excited to meet up with them for their Portsmouth, NH engagement photos. While Portsmouth is a little bit of a hike for me, I welcomed the weekend getaway!

Getting the Tour of Portsmouth

Portsmouth was a favorite spot for this couple. They had spent a ton of time there, both with their families and together. It just made sense for them to get married there also. When it came time to plan their engagement photos, they knew they wanted to show me around Portsmouth!  I had never been to the harbor city. It was pretty awesome. First of all, Portsmouth is small and quaint, full of history. Next, the restaurant options were endless! This was my favorite part of the trip. Sushi, seafood, ocean views? Yes please!

Practice Run

Engagement sessions are what I call the practice run. We will go over all the “poses” that will most likely happen on your wedding day. However, Shalini and Eric took this to a whole new level. Starting at their reception venue, Portsmouth Harbor Events, we walked to their ceremony site. Taking photos along the way, I was able to see exactly where I would be photographing on their wedding day.

Patriots blood runs strong here in Boston! Clearly Eric needed to incorporate his love of the Pats into his engagement photos! A quick outfit change ended our session and made for great Save the Dates!

Moffatt-Ladd House engagement

Shalini and Eric are having their wedding ceremony at the historic Moffatt-Ladd House in Portsmouth, NH. We stopped there in our tour of Portsmouth to grab some photos on the front stairs. I was able to take a peek at the grounds quickly. My excitement for getting to photograph a wedding at Moffatt-Ladd was overwhelming. It is beyond beautiful there!
