Engagement Photo Shoot Recap

We got our engagement photo CD in the mail today and they turned out great! We took them at Strawbery Banke, a museum in Portsmouth where I've worked for over two years. The site is about ten acres and has over thirty historic buildings on it that we used as great backdrops.

The photographer was a little worried about the brightness of the photos because we did them around sunset and it got dark very quickly. However, we ended up with 39 shots that had plenty of light and so we're pleased. I've picked out some of my initial favorites and posted them below. Enjoy!

This was our first shot, taken in front of the cooper's (barrel maker) workshop

Under an arbor by the strawberry patch. I do hearth cooking in the blue house behind us!

In front of the 1695 First-Period Sherburne House, one of the oldest houses in New Hampshire

And a nice shot as the light was fading, in front of the 1762 Chase House. I actually think I might use this image for our Christmas cards, as I think the lantern makes it somewhat festive!

Haha, I know. I think that was the hardest part of it all! As he also just pointed out, the photog probably took many more where he looks, you know, like Justin and these were the good ones.

Miss you too, monkey. Hoping to see you one of the days after Christmas! :)
