As March 2020 rolled around the Coronavirus hadn't completely taken hold yet. People hadn't been told to social distance, shops were still open and people gathered seemingly as normal. We made it just in time for the awesome elopement of Danielle and Daniel who were tying the knot at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard as Daniel was in the Navy and stationed there.
The pair had only been in New England a short while. In fact, they booked me in fairly short order and also opted for an engagement session that we shot in Portsmouth just three weeks before wedding day! Hey... to each their own and it was a great opportunity to get to know them and have them get more comfortable with me and with being in front of the camera.
The ceremony was scheduled for 4pm on the naval base but they decided to do a first look beforehand. Not far from the base I found a fantastic place to set that up and take additional photos of the two of them and the family. Fort McClary in Kittery is an amazing place on the coast of Maine. We had ocean views along with a killer fort to explore. For March 7th the weather was glorious! We managed to get some super photos before heading to the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard for the ceremony.
More guests came than I think even Danielle expected to the ceremony. Family and friends watched as Daniel and Danielle committed to each other. The mothers lit a candle together before the vows were read then the pair walked down the aisle towards their future. Weddings always go by fast so the elopement flew by but in its wake we managed to immortalize the occasion! I hope you enjoy some photos from their day!
