last Tuesday, I had the most amazing engagement session ever. Everything was perfect. And I am so addicted to the internet, that I was mentally composing this post to share it with you as I was taking the photos.
It was the perfect time of day, just before twilight, so there was plenty of that muted shade, and patches where the soft, golden sunlight spilled over and illuminated their sweet kisses. We went to downtown Portsmouth, which is quite possibly my favorite place in the United States. They were up for anything and really got into it. As we walked around, Ben would say, “oh, I like these stairs…let’s do some here!” and “can we do one in front of this door?”
There was never a moment where they didn’t want to do something I asked because they’d feel silly…their commitment and comfort totally showed in the photos. Which I’m getting to…I promise.
We were in Prescott Park (don’t miss it if you’re in Portsmouth!) next to some blossoming trees. There were a couple of teenage guys nearby, and in a sudden flash of inspiration, I approached them, “Hey guys, could you do me a favor?”
A little later, we found a brimming-with-character brick alleyway with a blossoming canopy. Of course I needed the correct perspective…which required climbing a tree. I asked them, “If I die, will you take me to the hospital?”
Thanks guys–it was a great time. I can’t wait till September!
Oh my! you are really rockin’ the settings!
