Suphada & Cameron’s Mt. Moosilauke Elopement – New Hampshire Elopement Photographer
Happy New Year everyone! 2020 was…something else eh? I realized I haven’t blogged in a very long time so I will be doing some updates! I also really need to re-do my website but it’s proving to be a very tough task. There’s some stuff that has been broken for a bit that I can’t seem to figure out so hopefully that will be solved sometime soon. In the meantime I hope to share some of my favorite shoots from the past year. As many of you know elopements became a bigger thing in 2020 of course due to Covid restrictions and I was not mad about it! I love smaller weddings and my plan going forward with my wedding business is to take a limited amount of larger weddings in general. I want to focus more on elopements and the food and product side of my business. So here we go! I have a ton of weddings booked for this year because of reschedules so this plan won’t really happen until 2022 but it’s all good! I’m excited for the ones I have booked and excited to see my clients again after we did some smaller weddings this past year. It’s been a wild ride!
So back in early September my client Suphada who is a wine sommelier and a personal chef reached out to me and told me her and her fiancé were planning to hike and elope on top of Mt. Moosilauke which is one of the 4,000 footers in New Hampshire. Wanting to do more of these, I said heck yes! The plan was a sunrise hike, and it was definitely an adventure! As you can see, we started in the dark, which I think made the hike go faster and it was just really cool to slowly see the word waking up as we went. At the top I was not sure what to expect because it was nearing 30 degrees, high winds, and thick fog. We got up there earlier than we planned so we had to wait a bit for enough light to take photos. I felt a little bad for this because we were all freezing! But we made it through.
As the sun came up the fog began to lift in the most incredible way. We were in and out of sunshine and clouds during the ceremony. My fingers were frozen and it was quite the adrenaline rush! I felt like I was running around getting the shots and being in awe of the scenery. The ceremony was short but extremely heartfelt and meaningful! Once it was done everyone rushed down to the tree-line to warm up a bit and indulge in some King Arthur Baking Co. pastries haha. The light was totally golden on the grasses and trees up at the top. I wish we could have stayed longer but man was it cold! A challenge I still need to figure out is hiking with all my heavy gear, that was a struggle on the way down for my joints…am I getting old??
After the hike we went to Suphada’s parent’s house for a BBQ, games, and drinks! It was a beautiful sunny day and while we had all been up most of the night it was such a blast!
