When I meet a couple for the first time, I like to tell them I often don't know where wedding photography is going to take me. Most times, I mean this in a figurative way as every wedding is different and some of my favorite moments as a photographer are candid flashes that happen in the blink of an eye and you either catch them or you don't.
In the case of Jillian and Christopher's October wedding in North Conway, New Hampshire, though, it was more literal AND figurative.
Jill and Chris were married at the stunningly beautiful Stonehurst Manor, a venue that lies in the shadow of the White Mountains, and to say it was one of the most "picturesque New England" weddings I've photographed is an understatement. This day was the type of day cheesy writers wax poetic about as they fill books and blogs about what fall "looks like" in New England. It was a day so colorful and vibrant, it almost makes sense to native New Englanders why people travel across the country to "leaf peep."
But, more importantly, this day was exactly what Jill and Chris had always hoped for: a laid back wedding with nature's beauty in the background and the love of two soulmates front and center.
Am I being a little cheesy? Absolutely. But if you knew Jill and Chris, you'd know it was perfectly fitting.
