In August, I had the privilege of photographing Mary & Larry’s wedding in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Both of them are avid hikers, so what would be more perfect than getting married at AMC’s Highland Center?!

I have to say, I was very excited to photograph this wedding. Personally, I grew up visiting the White Mountains, and I have been waiting for an adventurous couple to propose something new and different! Mary had told me that they were going to be taking the wedding party to the top of Mount Washington on the Cog Railway, which, if the weather was decent, could make for amazing photos. There’s no better (well, more convenient) way to see the mountains. What a treat! Here are some highlights from the day:

The bride got ready in a suite provided by the AMC. Loving the wildflowers!

The ceremony was in a field, which in August, was surrounded by the brightest yellow flowers and grasses. With a total of only 13 guests, the setting was perfect and intimate.

Can’t beat the mountain backdrop.

The kiss.

Some of my favorite types of photos to take are these ‘environmental portraits.’

To my surprise, there were even Adirondack chairs hidden away in down a little trail. Love them!

Next stop: The Cog Railway

The Cog is the world’s first mountain-climbing cog railway. It uses both steam and biodiesel fuel to power the train cars. It is also the 2nd steepest track in the world.

Once you reach the summit of Mt. Washington, you get about an hour at the top. There’s a museum, gift shop, observation deck, and weather station. But make sure you bring a coat, even in the summer! Mt. Washington is the windiest place on Earth.

Fog is one of my favorite things! So atmospheric!

These two should be on a magazine cover.

Props to Mary, for willing to climb over these big granite boulders for the photos. Also - what a gentlemen!

I wish you both a lifetime of happiness, and hiking!

Congratulations Mary & Larry!
