Glamorous Glen Manor House Wedding
Planning your Engagement Session
Get to know me more
I'm a Florida girl at heart, but fell in love here on Cape Cod and have been embracing New England life ever since. It's been such a blessing building a life and chasing my dreams with my husband, our two little girls, and our pups.
One of my dreams as a photographer finally came true! I hopped on the fast ferry over to Nantucket on Labor Day and photographed this stunning engagement session! Gorgeous sunlight, Nantucket blue sky, and all of the island charm you can imagine. It was a day filled with fun, love, sight-seeing, and soaking up every bit of the island life I’ve come to know and love through Elin Hildebrand books. A summer on Nantucket engagement session for the books (literally), and I can’t wait to head back next September for Moira and George’s wedding!
Moira has been summering on Nantucket her entire life. Everything this island is, she holds near and dear to her heart. And now her love for George is included in that. The couple has been building memories here for the last few years, and you can clearly see that the spirit of this quaint little piece of paradise shines right through them.
We girls bonded immediately over our love for Elin Hildebrand. She paints such a beautiful picture of Nantucket. We toured some of the iconic spots featured in her novels. And I found out the author is frequently spotted around town. Did I mention it was a dream of a day?!
For the engagement session we shot mostly at Brant Point Lighthouse and Jetty’s Beach. What I love about both locations is the mix of elements. Tall beach grass and large rocks are abundant along the water’s edge, and the lighthouse adds a a dynamic New England focal point. Jetty’s beach features a nice boardwalk, which runs right alongside a beach bar. So, not only was it a great spot for photos, it provided a fun atmosphere.
We ended the session downtown at the library. Wanting to capture a little bit of classic Nantucket, we danced across the cobblestone streets and nestled in the exterior nooks of the library. And as I’m writing this up, I’m realizing just how perfect that last stop was. Given of our love of books, of course.
Thank you Moira and George for the perfect Nantucket summer day!
