A Golden Hour Couple’s Session in Campton, New Hampshire

Marissa first messaged me right after she saw Cori and Bank’s engagement session from earlier this year, and I had been looking forward to getting together with them ever since!! Tom and Marissa are newlyweds of just over a year, and though they already knew some things from being in front of the camera before, it was so much fun to teach them a few of my little tricks, too! 🙂

This session was 2 of 2 that day, and the sun had started dipping towards the horizon, allowing for that soft golden hour light that I love ohhhhh so much to settle in.

And it. Was. So. Dreamy!!!!

Golden hour light hits so differently, and can make one location look vastly different!!

Tom and Marissa were so fun and so natural! It was quite chilly with the sun disappearing, but they brought these amazing blankets to get cozy with, and I was absolutely in love with the boho hat Marissa brought as an option!!

All in all it went by way too quickly, but I am so in love with their golden session!! It was such a special session, and I really hope to hang with them again in the future!

Tom and Marissa— thank you for meeting me in a not so obvious spot to enjoy the evening views!!! Enjoy some of my top favorites from your session. ❤️
