It’s been months since I’ve shared an engagement session on my blog! It’s not because I have stopped doing them, ha ha. Quite the opposite. I require every single one of my wedding couples to do an engagement session with me. It being my busiest time of year, wedding work definitely takes first priority, though. I couldn’t not share this one, though. Kirsten & Tim are getting married in a few weeks right here in Somerville. A lot of my couples like to hike and of course I am always open to doing our engagement session together in the mountains. I pitched Carter Dome to these two, knowing their dog’s name is Tuckerman, so maybe they’d be down? The first time I had gone up Carter Dome, I thought that I had to photograph someone up there. It’s such a great spot with a clearing, surrounded by short trees. It’s no joke of a hike, climbing something like 3000′ in .8 miles. That’s a joke, by the way! But, it’s steeeeep. Kirsten & Tim were 100% into it and I love that. They met me up at Carter Notch Hut, and we chilled out a bit to let the sweat dry out and grab a snack before heading out into the Ramparts, a boulder field located just in front of the hut. How on earth Tuckerman made it out there, I have no idea. I try not to think about it! There are crevices in between boulders that go who knows how far down, but he too busy having the best day a dog could ask for to care too much about those holes.
I also have to mention that the Mt. Washington Observatory reported wind gusts of 91mph on this day. We were certainly feeling it!
Thanks for indulging me, guys! See you in a few weeks! <3
