Winter Engagement Pictures | Hardwood Mansion Engagement Session | Dan & Kirstin

Since this “winter” hasn’t been too cold, I really didn’t hesitate to schedule an engagement session for Dan and Kirstin.  The only concerns with shooting this time of year is usually temperature and the way locations look.  Sometimes it’s a little tough in the winter because there are no plants and no leaves on the trees.  BUT- Hartwood Mansion is ALWAYS pretty.  So, there we shot!!!!

I love all of the colors in this shot.  I love how candid it is.

Kirstin totally pulled this one off all by herself!  She definitely brought it!  I love her eyes!

As much as I love my couples to strike a pose, “No Smile!” (ha ha- that’s what I tell them), I love to capture the moment.  A real, genuine moment.

Kirstin and Dan did such a good job and I had a great time with them.  I am fully looking forward to their wedding in June =)

Chatham University Chapel Wedding | Mt Washington Wedding Pictures | Tom & Kelly

Kelly had envisioned a snowy wedding day and that’s exactly what she got! =)  Tom and Kelly Donohoe got married on a beautiful snowy, but cold, day in February.  I was very excited to get some different sort of wedding photography images.

Kelly had really wanted to get a picture on Mt. Washington.  When we got there, it almost disappeared.  I was able to get just a faint shadow of the buildings.

I don’t often see closed toed as bridal shoes.  But, I loved these.

The decor at the Omni William Penn is to die for.  It definitely makes my job easier when I have location opportunities like this.

The chapel had such amazing natural light!  I didn’t have to use a flash at all.  This enables much greater feeling a natural.

Who doesn’t love a groomsmen jumping picture?  Getting your wedding party to jump is great fun and puts everyone in such a great mood.

How lucky am I that it was actually snowing during onsite shooting?  Granted it was 2 degrees, but nonetheless, it was awesome.

Their reception decor was breathtaking.  Very elegant.

I had an amazing day with Kelly and Tom.  I am so pleased to have had the chance to meet them and work with them.  I thank them very much for choosing Amber Marie Photography.
