A Fall Campus Engagement Session at UNH in Durham, New Hampshire

Fall hung on just long enough for Dave and Kirin’s engagement session!!

They brought me to the place they first met — the University of New Hampshire!! I have never actually been to the UNH campus before, but it was absolutely beautiful and I really enjoyed getting to see the place that brought these two together.

Kirin suggested we start at the heart of campus, which just so happened to have the ONE last standing vibrant orange tree. All the rest of the trees around campus were pretty bare with just a few leaves left to shake off. But when we rounded the pathway and saw this one tree I was in heaven!!

Dave and Kirin were so much fun! I loved listening to them reminisce as we walked around various parts of the campus grounds. I never had the college experience of living on campus, so hearing their stories and what it was like was truly a fun time. We eventually walked around, seeing various buildings where they did classes before graduating a few years ago, and then ended up at Libby’s Bar and Grill which seemed to be one of the only original restaurants on the strip in town that hasn’t changed.

I’m just so excited for their July wedding!! Thank you both so much for meeting with me and giving me a glimpse into your life! Enjoy some of my favorites from your session ❤️
