sunrise {at the beach}

20 Sep


You know those days when it is the only morning of the whole week where you can actually sleep in…and your stupid body wakes you up early anyway? Well, Sunday was one of those days for Dan and I. We both got up and he suggested we go down to the beach quick and watch the sunrise. It was perfect timing. And the sunrise was beautiful.

I guess sometimes it is worth it to get up early on the only day you would be able to sleep in. The world is pretty amazing sometimes.


summer fun {marginal way date}

25 Aug


Dan and I got a gift certificate for a restaurant in Ogunquit a couple years ago from my mom. We knew we wanted to use it when it was warm enough to walk around the area. But then we never got a chance to go. So, a couple weeks ago, I decided we needed a date night and we were going to use our gift certificate.
It happened to be super busy on the night that we went so we had to park kind of far away and walk to the restaurant. The restaurant was kind of fancy but it was a cute little restaurant. We enjoyed our meal and were really full.
After we ate, we went for a walk on Marginal Way, which is a walkway that runs along the ocean.

It was a little cloudy and we were afraid it might start raining, but it ended up being a really nice walk.

I love doing things like this with Dan. I love just spending time with him, strolling along the ocean. It is one of my favorite things to do with him.
P.S. I know I just posted a ton of things. I’m trying to catch up on my summer posts before schools starts this week. Hopefully I can catch up to my life.


summer fun {walking around Portsmouth}

25 Aug


I love the town of Portsmouth, NH. There are so many interesting things to see and places to just stroll around. A few weeks ago, I decided to take our camera and just go take a walk around to see what I could find. I ended up mostly just taking pictures at Prescott Park because it ended up being hotter than I thought so I didn’t spend as much time as I thought. There are beautiful gardens and it is right on the water. Definitely one of my favorite places.

It was a lovely couple hours wandering around.


wedding pictures {first look and portraits}

30 May
…some more wedding pictures…
We got married at a park called Great Island Common which is right on the ocean. It is gorgeous and one of my most favorite places. We were going to do our first look and pictures at other places, but it ended up not working out. Our pictures ended up being perfect though so in the end, it all worked out just as it should have.
We decided to do a first look for a couple of reasons. I wanted to be able to spend that time together before the wedding, just some special moments. Also, the way the wedding was set up, if we did pictures in between, all of the guests would’ve been standing around watching. So it just made sense.

We did our pictures in a few different places around the park. Basically just wandering around and saying..”this would be a great spot” and snapping some shots.

It was wonderful just having some time alone with Dan before we did group pictures and before all of the guests started arriving.
