Stephanie + Nic | A Fall Engagement Session | Sugar Hill, New Hampshire

I am so excited that I got to finally get Nic and Steph in front of my camera last week!!!

These two are incredibly sweet and so outgoing, and add their pupper Coop in the mix and I was living for it!!!

Nic is the brother of another groom of mine, Tim. And Sharon, who is Tim’s fiancé and also a #coralcompassbride, is also Stephanie’s best friend!! And next September, Nic and Steph and Tim and Sharon will be hosting a DOUBLE WEDDING!!!!

Y’all! I can’t even tell you how freaking excited I am! The Briand boys are a force all on their own, and Steph and Sharon are just so laid back and down to earth!! It’s going to be a busy day next September but, I am SO ready to hang with them on their big day!

Nic and Steph met me in Sugar Hill at one of my favorite spots for some mountain views and rustic vibes. It was a little ominous during their session, because from what I could tell, the hazy smoke from the fires out west had finally met the east coast, and the way it surrounded the dipping sun was just incredible.

The hazy glow actually worked really well in my favor, and though it was windy as heck, the session was perfect!! I don’t think any of us stopped laughing the whole time. And then sweet baby Coop was just SUCH a ham!! I could have spent a whole day up there taking portraits, but the sun fell and it started getting dark and before I knew it, it was already time to go!

Stephanie and Nic, thank you both for meeting with me in the mountains and giving the laughs of my week!! You both are incredible, and I can’t wait for your wedding next year!!
