Hillary and Matt’s Porstmouth NH Engagement Session

We love love love this couple. From the moment they walked up to us at the top of a parking deck, to the moment we hugged goodbye at the bar after the session, we were smitten. You know it was a good time when we all went out for Lobster and drinks afterward yes?

To say it was easy to photograph these two was an understatement. A couple who brings ideas, props, energy, and true love to a session is bound to be effortless when it comes to making things fun with the camera. Hillary and Matt did just that. The photo we posted on facebook earlier last week was our most popular post EVER according to the stats. The best part is that the photo was all their idea… I hope that sheds some light on the amazingness.

We simply walked around Portsmouth and found cool walls and nooks for them to snuggle in front of. Next we went to a local park where the magic of pinks beach cruisers and big floppy hats took place. Enjoy Hillary and Matt!
