A Chilly Spring Engagement Session in Canterbury, New Hampshire

I met with Alex and Lauren at Alex’s brother’s property for their engagement session, and even though it was chilly and Spring seems to be late blooming this year, we still made some golden hour magic happen!!

There were two trees in the yard with just enough blooms that I could make a little more color than what we actually had. The light was PERFECT and I am obsessed with how it made Lauren and her incredibly gorgeous hair glow!! Both of them were so easy going, and you know you found an incredible couple to work with when they say “hey we wouldn’t mind any outtakes in our gallery,” and were so down with me trying to use the blue garage door as a backdrop, which actually created some really epic band pics 😂

Alex and Lauren are getting married just next month and I am so excited!! Time flies and I just know their day is going to be incredible. Think old train house and rustic vibes!!

Enjoy some of my favorites from their gallery ✨
