Can we all agree that engagement sessions are better when there’s a puppy involved?! Especially when your couple includes the cutest miniature dachshund named Olivia! This seaside NH engagement session with Michelle, Dave, and Olivia was the perfect way to spend a summer evening. We couldn’t have asked for a better night or better weather to explore Fort Stark and Great Common Island!

Michelle and Dave met when they were both freshmen at Georgetown University and have been together ever since! These two love sailing and being near the water, so we definitely had to do their engagement session on the seacoast. I’d never been to either Fort Stark or Great Common Island, but I loved them and definitely want to go back. I had a blast exploring the remains of the Fort and there were really cool jetties we found that had waves crashing all up the sides at both locations! The one at Great Common Island was the perfect spot to end the session! I love when my couples are adventurous and are totally down to do anything for the shot – Michelle and Dave got a little wet, but it was totally worth it for the last shot of the night! Make sure to scroll all the way to the bottom to check it out 🙂 

I always love hearing how my clients find me and I LOVED the fact that Michelle and Dave found me through another one of my LDP brides, Emily. Emily is a spin instructor in NH and Michelle and Dave take her class! I just love that connection and thanks for the referral, Em!! 🙂

Also, how cute is Michelle’s dress in these photos?! She got it from Rent The Runway! Did you know they do bridal packages?!? I didn’t either, but now I’m recommending it to everyone! Definitely check it out here for more details because it’s such an amazing idea!!
