When Gabrielle told us about her and Rob’s first date in Portsmouth, NH we knew this would be a great spot to capture their engagement session and we loved the idea of retracing their steps. We stopped by where went to dinner that first night, and then took a stroll through Prescott Park. How romantic is that?! Not only was this adorably sentimental, but of course, we all know Prescott Park is absolutely beautiful!
The engagement shoot started in downtown Portsmouth, at the wonderful mediterranean restaurant where it all began for these two. Then we walked around admiring the beauty of Portsmouth and making new memories as we travelled down memory lane.
On our way to Prescott Park, we walked through town, stopping along the way at all pretty spots we passed by. We had so much fun stopping from place to place…every time we saw a pretty garden or house, we would run over and have some fun taking photos there. So happy these two were willing to really have some fun with the camera and every cool scene we spotted through the city!
Gabbie and Rob were so photogenic, and their genuine happiness made them total naturals in front of the camera. After a quick outfit change, we took some photos of Rob and Gabrielle dancing to show off the moves they learned during the dance lessons they took together! Can’t wait to see these two have their first dance next August at their wedding! How adorable are they?!
As we passed the adorable historic area of Strawberry Bank we stopped for some photos in front of the houses and gardens. Of course, when we saw this awesome carriage just begging us to take advantage of the photo opp, so we HAD to indulge! This photo looks like it’s straight out of a page in a book…so happy Gabbie and Rob were willing to be silly/daring with me and sneak onto this scene real quick! Totally worth the risk ; )
We finally made it to Prescott Park, and as usual it looked absolutely lovely. We asked the happy couple walk around and enjoy the beautiful scenery while we got some shots of them relaxed with one another…truly in love.During our time spent with Rob and Gabbie, it was easy to see that these two were truly meant for each other. After meeting three years ago at UNH, their relationship has blossomed into a beautiful and joyful love. Their personalities compliment one another so well, and we couldn’t help but swoon over how happy they are together. A Portsmouth engagement shoot with these two wouldn’t have been complete with out going down to the pier and having some fun! How adorable and lovey-dovey are these piggy-back photos?! You can really see the love in their eyes in each captured moment.We started heading back to our cars to wrap up this Portsmouth engagement session, stopping for photos of course, along the way. I hope these two always feel the joy, excitement, and true love they feel right now!
We seriously couldn’t be more excited to capture Gabbie and Rob’s wedding day next August with photo and video. The love in their hearts was just bursting, and we are so blessed to celebrate the honest and pure connection these two have at their wedding next year!
An absolutely gorgeous couple, inside and out…making my job super easy! These two were laughing with each other the whole time and their amazing personalities made every picture so genuine and true. A perfect Portsmouth engagement session for a perfect couple…thanks again Rob and Gabbie and we can’t wait till your big day!!
