Coastal New Hampshire is such a hidden gem, and eloping here is the perfect intimate, stunning, tranquil location. 10/10 recommend for those who love the great outdoors, quiet beaches, local eateries, and calming ocean waters.
For more on what the heck eloping is and where to even begin if you’re thinking of eloping, head to my blog post ALL about elopements!
Asia and Terrence were one of several ANGEL couples who got married last summer during the heat of COVID-19. This summer, they wanted to capture the beauty of this new time as a married couple with nature and intimacy (and some rock scaling) at sunset in one of their favorite places: North Hampton Beach. Asia rocked her etherial gown for the second time, and Terrence broke out his brand new custom tux which he didn’t get to sport last summer.
The party vibes were on, and we had an absolute blast together. We got ready in a literal DREAM mansion by the water, took in the fresh salt air, and forever captured special moments between these two kind, confident, lovely souls.
Happy one year of married life to a couple I could literally hang with any time. Thank you, Asia, for bringing your confidence, light, and up-for-anything attitude, and thank you Terrence for your kindness, busting some impromptu dance moves, and being a pro dress-holder. Thank you both trusting me to capture these moments of YOUR married love.
Asia and Terrence did it right: overnight, relaxed vibes in a STUNNING North Hampton Beach home overlooking the rocky beaches of seacoast New Hampshire. They got to take their time getting ready in the home’s beautiful, naturally lit rooms, rock some tunes, hang with family friends, and yes enjoy the company of two precious doggos. While it’s not a requirement to have dogs with you for your elopement, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS ADDED JOY.
It was a perfect moderate summer evening, despite sprinkles and THICK AF humidity every waking minute before sunset.
About an hour before sunset, we made sure we were ready in time to start the evening outside in the backyard, overlooking the marshlands and wildlife (THERE WERE TWO DEER). This gave Asia and Terrence a chance to take one another in and get comfortable taking pictures before heading to the beach for sunset. These two were naturals, though, and required zero warm up whatsoever. Giddiest third wheel, over here. Seriously, let’s do this for every anniversary of yours, please?
Thankfully, the angels in the sky cleared the clouds and (some) humidity just before our sunset time together 🙂 BUT, my best advice to anyone in preparing for uncertain weather (hello, New England) is:
Asia, Terrence and I planned out our evening together beforehand. It went roughly like what you’ll see below, and it was a freakin’ blast. Even if the weather HAD stayed cloudy or had even sprinkled, I think we would’ve stayed with this timeline anyway because no monsoons were on the forecast 😉
The healing power of spending a quiet night on the beach with your human while the gentle, clean, waves create a hum around you, is something I REALLY believe in.
Thinking of a sunset beach elopement, adventure session, or just a reason to get out with your loved one(s)? Let’s book some time together. I can’t wait to meet you.
See you soon,
