Erin + Russ | Coastal Farm Engagement Session

"She buried her ears into the calm of his heartbeat, and in a matter of seconds, fell terribly in love with the way her loneliness fell softly and suddenly, asleep in his chest."


I met Erin and Russ earlier this year, when we sat down at a little cafe on a warm spring day to discuss their wedding plans. Like me, they are fellow Wildcats and not far apart in age from myself, so it felt much like sitting down and chatting with friends as they told me about themselves and let me pick their brains on wedding colors, florals, and all those wedding day details that I could talk about for hours on end.

The next time I saw them was on this romantic engagement session through the meadows, woods, and along the coastline of Wagon Hill Farm in Durham, New Hampshire. It was the perfect summer night to frolic through the fields and soak up the setting sun, and these two dressed to impress! I had such fun playing third wheel and allowing Erin and Russ to relax and be their selves in front of the camera (which they definitely nailed; see photo proof below). 

I can't wait to reunite again to photograph their coastal summer wedding at the Seacoast Science Center in Rye next August. I mean, how could I not?

Hugs to you both!
