A Gloucester beach house, an Essex seafarer’s estate and a gorgeous May Saturday, what more could you ask for? Well, throw in a lovely bride and tons of friends and family ready to laugh, dance and party and you’ve got all the makings for an epic wedding day on Massachusett’s North Shore! Stylized/arranged bridal shoots are great, but nothing beats the variety, personalities and true joy—the realness—of the real thing! Justin and Jessica (view their Newburyport, MA engagement session here) kept our streak of awesomely laid-back and easy to work with couples very much alive and we had a great time capturing all the joy and love that they were conducting! As you’ll see, the timing was perfect for the full bloom of spring, which made an already beautiful occasion that much better…

We are excited to present for your ocular pleasure, the engagement session of Nicole and Colin! It was a joy to photograph these two at Nicole’s parent’s beautiful home in Bartlett, NH. Though the weather was less than ideal (read torrential), we had more than enough to work with given our lovely setting and couple. Nicole chose as one of her outfits, an amazing yellow dress that once belonged to her grandmother and it fits her perfectly. So beautiful!

We want to thank them and Nicole’s family for warmly welcoming us. Can’t wait for their July 4th, 2012 wedding which will be held at the home as well, in the surrounding fields. It’s going to be stunning! Happy engagement guys… :)

So our engagement session with Ben & Katie in Crawford Notch (in the heart of New Hampshire’s White Mountains) last month taught us a couple of things… 1. Even if it’s warm and sunny where you are, chances are it’s going to be cold and breezy in the mountains, and 2. Ben & Katie are super cool and laid back and we can’t wait for their Mount Washington Hotel wedding next month! Even though it was cold to the point of being uncomfortable, these two rocked it like pros and we actually had a great time with them despite the slightly adverse conditions. We thought we were able to capture a fresh perspective on the ever-popular railroad-themed shoot, tho’ we did stop short of tying anyone to the tracks!

This is Grant. A new and lovely addition to the planet. We know he won’t remember us when he grows up but we’re happy we got to meet him. Before we met him, he used to hang out here.

So engagement session season is in full swing and we’ve been very much enjoying getting to know and hang out with our awesome 2011 couples! This is one of the best and most important reasons that an engagement photo shoot is such a great idea. It gives us a chance to build a rapport with our soon-to-be brides & grooms, and shows them that getting shot by Birch Blaze is not so bad. In fact, it’s pretty fun! We recently caught up with Gregg & Rachel in one of our favorite places, Portsmouth, New Hampshire for their e-session and let me tell you, they’re super-cool folks! As per usual, we had lots of laughs and lots of fun. Here’s the proof…
