Renee + Tony | An Oceanside Engagement Session | Odiorne State Park | Rye, New Hampshire

Meeting up with Renee and Tony was absolutely wonderful, and to say I am excited for their wedding is a severe understatement!!

I first started chatting with them last summer, and it’s wild to me to think that we are already a year in on our journey together! Finally getting to meet them in person was an amazing time. She wore the most gorgeous dress and Tony was dressed in complimenting colors. The weather at Odiorne was very hazy and cloudy a few days prior for another session I did, but we had amazing glowy light for theirs and I was in heaven!!

I’ve come to really appreciate beach sessions as I’ve done more and more of them this year. I love the way the neutral toned sand reflects light, the tall, wavy beach grass, and the ocean just creates an amazingly relaxed vibe. That, combined with Renee’s gorgeous hair blowing in the wind, and just the overall cozy atmosphere was perfect.

They made my job super easy, and I could have spent 12 hours with them on the beach taking fun portraits while we all laughed!! They were open to walking barefoot by the water, and snuggling up on some Beachwood. And some of my favorite portraits were the ones of Tony helping Renee up from the dark rocks in the water. And the ones of them in the tall grass!! Well, all of them really ?

I hope you both had a lot of fun!! I can’t wait to see you again next year for your wedding!! Enjoy some of my (many) favorites from your session ❤️
