Jenny + Leo are married!

Jenny + Leo
The Barn at Flanagan Farm
September 14, 2019

Jenny and Leo were so very sweet, attentive and loving- such a joy to meet. The way Leo lit up (and teared up ;) ) when Jenny walked down the aisle was like he had been waiting the entire day to hug her and tell her he loved her. Jenny had so much love for Leo. She talked about him all morning when we arrived- how Leo bought her new perfume and how handsome she knew he was going to look. A couple of the bridesmaids told me how close they were and how awesome their entire family was. Right away I knew we were in for a special day with everyone.

Jenny’s mom surprised her with a gorgeous bracelet that morning- simple yet very elegant- perfect for Jenny’s look. Mom stayed close by throughout the day- I could tell the two of them shared more than a mother/daughter relationship but also a friendship. :)

Jenny’s dress was hung perfectly, in the coolest room we’ve seen all year, with accessories set out and ready for us to capture. Her gown was magnificent- a perfect gown- so elegant and detailed. It had subtle lace to compliment her jewels and fit her like a glove. The venue delivered perfect light in every room making all photos captured- easy. In fact, the entire day was easy. Between the natural chemistry between Jenny and Leo, the entire wedding party being the most helpful and kind, to welcoming family members and overall a very pleasing spot to photograph.

The rain hit as soon as it was time for formal portraits. But that didn’t stop us! Turns out, some drizzle can be amazingly gorgeous light! Not to mention, the umbrella added a fun creative piece to the images. I could have photographed Jenny all day-she has such natural beauty.
The rain came and went throughout the day and it never phased the couple. Both Jenny and Leo had a very calm presence- they were at ease marrying their best friend.

Shoutout to bridesmaid + bestie to the bride, Bryanne Lovell, for making the bouquets and floral arrangements! WOW! I LOVED the style & unique look.

First look with Dad!
Always a favorite!
Jenny’s father, William, was so anxious to see his daughter- he asked me if we could do a first look & of course I was over the moon to do so.
It was very apparent the two of them shared a very close and loving bond- always special to photograph.
Tears and laughter was shared between the two before walking down the aisle.

Also. PEARS! How super cool it was to find pear trees on the grounds!

The ceremony was heartfelt, personalized and very much tailored to Jenny & Leo. The couple wrote their own vows- making us all laugh and cry then laugh and cry some more. They filled an hourglass with sand from places the closest to them. This special touch gave the guests a chance to connect and be a part of the couple’s most intimate moments during the ceremony.

After rings were exchanged, the first kiss was had and the two were announced husband and wife, a song broke out for Jenny and Leo to bust a move! The couple stood in place dancing and laughing before gliding down the aisle hand-in-hand filled with joy and excitement!

Family photos!
Wedding party photos!

The best part- formals with the happy couple! :)
Jenny & Leo couldn't have been easier to photograph! The two have natural chemistry, sincere smiles and happiness. They have so much joy in one another’s presence and overall a true connection.
I felt so blessed having the honor of photographing these two wonderful humans.

Dear Jenny + Leo,

May you always keep your friendship close to your hearts, the laughter constant and the encouragement for each other to stand alone with goals and dreams.
Your goals and dreams will always align, so long as you have the true connection I saw on September 14th.
I wish you all good things-
courage and strength-
and never ending dancing.

So much love,

Hannah

Reception time!
The decor, the food, the lighting, the music and overall the entire atmosphere was perfect. It’s as if Jenny & Leo had thought of everything for their friends and family to have the best time! The wedding party was lively with entrances and the parents were having the time of their lives- so proud.

William, father of the bride, opened the reception with an extremely hilarious, heartfelt and welcoming speech. He started off “warning'“ us all that he occasionally has a little allergy that makes his eyes leak sometimes. ;) William said that from the moment he and his family met Leo they loved him. In fact, William said Leo charmed them at hello! He complimented his daughter on her character and told her how proud he and her mother was of her. He ended with wishing them many, many happy years!

MOH and sister of the bride, Natalie, spoke of being the younger sister growing up idolizing Jenny. She spoke about how she’s watched and admired how Jenny has accomplished so many goals with hard work and intelligence. Natalie said she thought it would never be possible for Jenny to find someone as equally compassionate, generous and fun loving as Jenny- until she met Leo. She had us all laughing with stories of Jenny “fighting furniture” to stick up for her and her clumsy ways. Such a great sister speech- love & humor!

Best Man and brother of the groom, Maxwell, spoke of growing up together doing crazy, fun things to now both being married men holding hands with their wives with the same positive outlooks. Maxwell told the couple that the two of them together has always felt right! He ended with telling Jenny and Leo that it’s been a pleasure watching their relationship grow into a promising future of tomorrow.

The night went into full swing with dancing and celebration!

So much love surrounded by Jenny & Leo!

All good things- cheers to you all!
-Hannah

Lynn+ Jesse are married!

Lynn + Jesse Morkeski
Married on August 24, 2019
Coleman Estates State Park
Stewartstown, New Hampshire

Lynn & Jesse’s weekend was packed with all things relaxing, inviting and fun for their family and friends! We all enjoyed exploring the grounds of such a perfect secluded area in Northern New Hampshire. The weather was crisp but offered plenty of sun for warmth & most importantly- great lighting for photos. :)

Lynn has grown up visiting Coleman Estates State Park and has always been familiar with the area so naturally it was a place she was drawn to while beginning the process of wedding planning. Her & Jesse both agreed the park was more than a perfect fit for their wedding vision. And we all couldn’t have agreed more!

The park was welcoming with quaint cabins, a main house where the Bridal Suite was located and (where all the fun went down) a large reception hall to hold events! The space was perfectly planned for lawn games, a fire pit for s’mores and plenty of space for guests to wander and enjoy the fresh open air!

Lynn and Jesse love spending time outdoors- hiking, kayaking and all things active. Naturally, having mountains stand tall behind them as they read their vows was the icing on the cake for this venue! The two read their own vows as we all shared laughter and tears.

Lynn had many special moments unfold throughout the day but a couple very important ones were those spent with her parents. Gifting her mother a bracelet and hand written note to tell her how much she loves and appreciates her. A surprise tie for Dad with a sewn in note to a first look that had us all in tears!

Formal photos were such a blast with the wedding party, filled with so much excitment for Jesse and Lynn! We all agreed and appreciated how relaxing, enjoyable and overall FUN the weekend was. Most of us spent the college years together so we have never been short on making each other laugh! Lynn’s MOH, Cait, and her have been friends since the 7th grade so capturing moments between them was super playful and goofy!

The guys spent their afternoon enjoying beers & discovering a tree house! Jen had a blast with them & early on realized photographing the groomsmen would be a breeze!
So much creativity and play went in to capturing the guys! Jesse has some great friends who have always been very close.

When the time came for Lynn’s formals I naturally could not resist being the one capturing them! I have been photographing Lynn since college. I would talk her into leaving class early or spending the day letting me do her make up, throwing her in outfits and driving down back roads to find a field! Once we snuck into the admin building after dark to shoot in a classroom! And when caught, I covered by saying it was an art therapy project for a class. We continued! ha! Lynn has always been the most supportive friend throughout my photo journey.
The day came for me to capture Lynn the same way I have always done…only this time in white lace. We can all agree she has a very timeless look and photographs so very natural. To this day she is still one of my most favorite muses.

You were absolutely stunning Lynn. That dress was made for you and you confidently wore it well. The accessories ( all pieces from family) tied in nicely.

Dear Lynn & Jesse,

The two of you compliment one another so perfectly. I know everyone would agree with me when I say you both bring out different sides in one another. Jesse, you bring out the free spirit tucked inside Lynn to nourish the playful and adventurous side she loves. Lynn, you ground Jesse and guide him to focus on life and love. You nurture and support him- unconditionally. The two of you embrace one another as individuals first, and as a couple second. To me that speaks volumes towards building lasting commitment and dedication to one another. Supporting dreams, goals and master plans.
I couldn’t adore you two more.

All good things,
Hannah

RECEPTION FUN!

elopements, maine weddings, WEDDINGS

Marty & Bill Eloped to York, ME!

Marty & Bill traveled to York, Maine to say I do surrounded by the ocean with the sound of waves. The couple from Vermont wanted a quiet, romantic experience for their special day- so to Maine they came! If you have spent any time on York Beach you know just how tranquil and special it can be- perfect elopement location. Marty and Bill chose their spot to stand based on the rocks- a heart rock to be exact. They were married by Julie Draper of York (who by the way does the most incredible, heartfelt ceremonies)- it was my first time meeting her and I am looking forward to the first time I get to recommend her!
The newly married couple stayed local at the Stage Neck Inn; enjoying drinks and dinner after we took some time photographing along the water’s edge.

I simply could not enjoy capturing elopement’s more! Thank you for the time spent, Marty and Bill.

All my love,
Hannah

TRAVIS & ERICA BROWNELL
MARCH 23, 2019
MORGAN HILL EVENT CENTER
HERMON, MAINE

Oh Erica + Travis, your wedding could not have been any more enjoyable to photograph!
You two brought out all the stops to ensure that not only you had the best time, but your friends + family did as well!
Erica, I have always adored the heck right out of you so I had looked forward to your day for months. The day came and you were the bride I knew you’d be… drop-dead-gorgeous and carefree. Thank you from day 1 for always putting the trust in my creativity + profession to capture your day the way we were comfortable doing. We simply could not appreciate more the fact that you + Travis welcomed us so wholeheartedly and with love- this makes photographing such intimate times all the better.
Travis, what a ball you are! Jen mentioned on a few occasions how accommodating + easy you were to photograph. All of your thank you’s spoke volumes to your character + we appreciated you. Not to mention! How much fun you + your groomsmen made the day- never a dull moment! :)

We could carry on + on with all the love we have for you + how much fun we had!
We truly mean it when we say- keep in touch! We wish you all the love.

Could Erica’s shoes be anymore AWESOME?! We want a pair.

BOMBSHELL- am I right?!
Ally for the win on the hair + makeup!
Erica you seriously made for a stunning bride- all looks aside- you were happy + glowing!

THE WIND! Oh boy, the wind was out to play this day! However, we knew the best lighting was outside- so off we went! I have never laughed so hard photographing a bride the way I did with Erica in this wind storm! What a blast- and so very worth it.

The ceremony was so authentic! We loved the fact that your ceremony was so tailored to the two of you! You had us all laughing and crying at the same time.

Ohhhhh all the gushing. The editing process was one filled with,
“they are so connected- look how effortless they are here.”
+ tons of
“oh my word, this one”
Travis + Erica, we can all agree that the connection + romance that stands in your relationship is never left short. You two have so much play + laughter, love+passion.
I could have spent all day capturing you both- you truly made its easy.
But, again, THAT WIND!
So back inside we went to watch you dance as husband + wife for the first time.

THE RECEPTION!
We all remember it. So many of us side by side enjoying such a fun + lively night! You two surely lived up to the idea of wanting your reception to feel like an event we were all attending! There were times it felt as though we were shooting a live dance off - OR better yet- the most anticipated event of the season ;).
Your wedding was one to remember.
