Marissa & Brandan

A Beautiful Summer Wedding at the Stonebridge Country Club in Goffstown, New Hampshire

It’s crazy to me that Brandan and Marissa’s wedding day is already being featured on the blog!! I remember when Marissa first reached out to me on Instagram last summer very shortly after Brandan proposed. She was so sweet and thoughtful in her messages, and when she told me they were looking for a longterm photographer to capture many seasons of their life together, I KNEW I had to work with them.

They booked their July wedding with me and then last fall we got together in Sugar Hill for what ended up being one of my favorite sessions of 2020! I distinctly remember feeling like I was hanging with two people I had known for a lifetime. They both just radiated so much happiness and I loved getting to know them so much.

It seems like this summer came up so quick. And what is so significant about the venue they chose is that it ironically is the same place I really figured out I loved weddings when I was just 16 years old with a passion for photography. I was the guest at the wedding with my camera taking my own photos, and later adding color splash on It’s where I remember taking my very first set of detail photos and thinking to myself “wow, I really love these photos!”

12 years later, these two brought me back and it was like I flew back in time instantly. But this time, I was the lead photographer and my skillset is VASTLY different (I promise you won’t see any color splash 😂)

I felt at home in a lot of ways being with Brandan and Marissa all day. It was hot, sticky July day but it was overcast and beautiful. Rain threatened their wedding day, too, but low and behold my luck held out once again!! I loved their simple yet elegant decor, and don’t even get me started on just how STUNNING Marissa’s bridal look was!! Her hair was full, she wore an incredible cathedral veil and her dress was stunning. And that first look they shared…. Brandan’s reaction was just so sweet!

AND, I cannot forget to mention their first dance. Brandan and Marissa had a choreographed dance which was so intimate and literally made my jaw drop!!!

Thank you both for being such genuine individuals, and for choosing me to be the one to document your engagement and wedding day. I simply cannot wait to watch you both grow in marriage, and see where this journey takes you!!! Enjoy my top favorites from your gallery ❤️
