A lot of how I photograph weddings has to do with my clients having trust in what I am doing behind the camera. Usually within the first hour of me being at a wedding that trust is established (or during the engagement session). It is especially easy when the bride happens to be my significant other’s best friend that I have known for four years. Kristin is my girlfriend’s long time best friend and neighbor growing up. Over the past few years I have come to know Kristin’s amazing and vibrant personality through various trips and visits with her and Mark down in their hometown of Ellicott City, Maryland. Mark, being the perfect counterpart to Kristin’s bubbly personality is a little more reserved, though equally kind, and kept calm through the whole process and continues to be one of our favorite people to see whenever they can make the trip back up to New Hampshire. Kristin and Mark’s Wolfeboro Inn Wedding in, you guessed it, Wolfeboro, New Hampshire – the self proclaimed “First Vacation Town in America.” We had on and off thunderstorms all day which caused for a bit of a stressful morning, but in the end it wound up being great for the lighting during the ceremony and formal photographs. We even had a double rainbow (AHHH!). The wedding was last June, but it still stands out as one of my favorite weddings ever, and not just because my girlfriend (and second shooter) was in the wedding.
