Lexie and Josh| NH Engagement Photographer

I met up with Lexie and Josh on a beautiful summer night. They had wanted to have their engagement session at the marina where they keep their boat and I thought this was great. Their wedding is being held next August in Block Island, and boating and the water are a big part of their lives. I arrived at the marina and we headed down toward the docks. I assumed we’d do a few photos on the boat and then find a little spot up near the boat house for some more shots. Well, imagine my surprise when after I’d climbed into the boat Josh start to untie us! I quickly texted Erin that we were ON the boat—like out in the middle of the Piscataqua ON the boat, and she and I had a good laugh about that later.
Josh and Lexie are so easy to hang out with that I had to keep reminding myself I wasn’t just out on a boat cruise with some new friends—I had a job to do! We headed out toward the Prescott Park area and took some pictures of them just hanging out together enjoying the water and the scenery.Newbury Engagement 6.23.16-2Newbury Engagement 6.23.16-11 copy
I knew I wanted to get off the boat for a few minutes so we started driving around looking for a place to tie up. We managed to sweet talk one of the marinas into letting us park there for a few minutes. (Is that a boat term? Do you ‘park’ a boat?) Engagement sessions are among my favorites, and a couple like Lexie and Josh, who are playful and fun make the time fly by.Newbury Engagement 6.23.16-22 copy

We had an absolutely gorgeous night, perfect weather with the kind of sunset that makes you wish it was summer all year long. Each time I said ‘Ok lets head back to the boat’, the sun kept giving us more and more gorgeous light, and I think I said ‘just one more picture’ probably 10 times!
