Today I have a simple and understated engagement session which stands alone as one of the best we have featured due to its natural and romantic qualities. If that was enough, I am also proud to feature this session becuase I am slight bias when it comes to any e-sessions or rustic weddings in New Hampshire since that is where my husband grew up and we head back there to visit often. Thanks to Anne Skidmore Photography for sharing this rustic engagement session with us today. Make sure you check out this Rustic New Hampshire Wedding we featured also by the talented Anne Skidmore Photography.
From the photographer: Laurel and Andy’s Story: Andy and Laurel have a really cute love story. They knew who each other when they were in high school however they’re were a few years apart, and their hearts weren’t united until years later up here in the North Conway area. They felt a connection right away when they bumped into each other and began dating. Now you’ll soon see that Laurel is a very sweet, kind, and wonderful person- but her job is quite intense. She was an Occupational Therapist in the US Army for most of the time she and Andy were dating. They were stationed in Hawaii for some time, not bad right? Year round golf was heaven for Andy, but after two years there Laurel got orders that she would have to deploy to Afghanistan for a year and work with soldiers over there. Andy reassured her that the distance would not change a thing, and he proposed to Laurel on a weekend trip to the Big Island in Hawaii which was the last of the islands they had left to visit. He proposed on the beach at sunset by spelling out “will you marry me” in white rocks in the sand.
