Newburyport Engagement Pictures :: Holland + Loren

Earlier this month I had the pleasure of meeting Holly and Loren for a pre-shoot cocktail at Ceia in Newburyport. Although I have a strict "no drinks when working" rule at weddings, I'll break the rules at an engagement shoot ;)

We sipped our cocktails and I got to hear all about the plans for their upcoming wedding, Loren's bachelor weekend in Montreal for the F1 race and Holly's upcoming bachelorette weekend in Chatham with her girlfriends

Way back when, Holly and Loren were both at different schools in the great state of New York and they found themselves at the same social evening. They got to chatting at the bar and there may even have been talk of dancing.

They started spending more and more and more time together and although Loren was initially a little hesitate to put a label on their relationship, pretty much everyone else knew they made a great couple

Fast forward to a wedding that Holly and Loren were attending as guests. Unbeknowst to Holly, Loren spent most of the evening telling everyone he was planning to ask Holly to marry him. Loren also made sure to ask both of Holly's parents for their permission including a rather epic lunch with Holly's father involving a man-to-man stare off :)

A weekend was planned at Loren's family home on Lake George. As part of the trip Loren had booked a stay at the beautiful Woodstock Inn in Vermont. Loren couldn't wait any longer and as soon as they arrived, they hadn't even left the parking lot when he got down on one knee and proposed to Holly.

Holly said yes and I'm so excited to photograph their wedding which will be happening in less than one month at the lovely Wentworth-by-the-Sea Country Club in Rye, NH

There was a LOT of laughing at this shoot:

We wanted to take a few night time pictures with the twinkle lights of the harbor in the background so we took a little break. Drinks and oysters for the win. Audrey even joined us so we could use her mad lighting skills :)  

One last night time picture. Holly and Loren - I hope you like these preview pictures - lots more to come including all sorts of crazy faces and silliness :) I'll see you in 25 days!

Next up on the blog I have a surprise proposal in Maine, a Boston engagement shoot and then it'll be time for Amara & Chris's wedding at Wellesley County Club followed by Toby & Jesse's Taj Boston Wedding!
