Joyful Jewish Wedding at the Mansion On Turner Hill in Ipswich, MA

This gorgeous Jewish wedding was a turning point in my life - and I don't say that lightly. I debated even writing this post at all since it's been years since this wedding and this couple had such an impact on me in some of my darkest hours... But how can I not share something that made a difference in how I view love? https://www.hilarycolleen.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/Afterglow.mp3 Have a little listen while you look - "Afterglow" by Jordan Critz featuring Matt Wertz Lauren had seen the wedding photos I[...]

Day After Jet Ski Session at Camp Cody in Freedom, NH

When you love lake life in New Hampshire, you get married at a place like Camp Cody in Freedom, New Hampshire. But when you really love lake life, you wake up early the morning after your wedding, slip back into your wedding attire and hop on a jet ski together. At least that's what Tyler & Kimberly did. There is something so magical about waking up that first morning with your forever partner ... and having those feelings, those moments documented to relive year after year is absolutely priceless. The grounds[...]

Vibrant Traditional Thai Wedding at Hidden Hills in Rindge, NH

I love love. I know I say that a lot (on my website, in my branding, in everyday life...) but I truly love seeing love in all its forms. And I really love seeing people in love embrace everything about their partner and celebrate the things that they hold most dear together. Maneeya & Isaac had a beautiful traditional Thai ceremony at Hidden Hills in Rindge, New Hampshire in late summer and y’all, I had never photographed a ceremony like this and it was one of the most beautiful things... It didn’t[...]

Heartfelt Rustic Barn Wedding in Aroostook County, ME

This wedding hit me in the feels on many levels. My childhood was spent running through those potato fields to the very church their ceremony was held in. My summers were spent writing my name on the walls of the cabins at the campground where they first met and had their First Look. I spent 9 years of my life in Aroostook County, Maine and spent so much time around Katie's family when we were young - and she was just a few years old when my family moved away. Her mother actually reached out to me long before Katie &[...]

“Into the Woods” Winter Styled Elopement at The Sunset Hill House in Sugar Hill, NH

Sometimes things fall apart so they can fall back together in a better way than you could have ever imagined. As a lover of winter in New Hampshire, I had this vision of taking outdoor elopements in winter to the next level - to give those couples who choose to start their marriage with an adventure just the two of them something extra that made their day even more special. I decided to bring this vision to life at one of my recent LOFT Workshops and when our initial location fell through less than a mon[...]

Windy Fall Mountain Wedding at Killington Resort in Killington, VT

There's something about a small breeze on a wedding day that makes everything look more elegant. Well, Kristin & Michael got a little more than a small breeze on their day at Killington Resort - okay, who are we kidding, we had never felt wind so powerful and cold in Fall until this day! But what's amazing is how everyone was a trooper and stuck it out in the freezing temperatures through the ceremony and THEN to the summit for the reception! Give a little love to your ears while you give a feast to your eyes throug[...]
