Amy and Nick Engagement Session | Boston, MA

Amy and Nick Engagement Session | Boston, MA

Within a few minutes of walking up to a couple I can always tell we are truly a good fit. This is 100% true with Amy and Nick. They were relaxed and excited to start their session. When I say relaxed I mean they were ready to trust me as I educated them through out their session on the main poses they will do on their wedding day. They were up for anything and were really wanting to have many candid moments of the two of them together, which just so happens to be my favorite moments!

These guys traveled to Boston from NOLA during a pandemic to have their engagement photos taken in Boston. I noticed them as they were walking across the street to meet me at the Public Gardens. As I mentioned before, they were both so relaxed and looked so nice as their outfits coordinated so nicely! That first initial meeting its like a blind date- I always look for happy in love couples that are most likely going to get their photos taken and these two were exactly that. Happy and in love.

Amy and Nick are Umass Amherst Alumni and are now planning their wedding  at the Saphire Estate in Sharon,MA Summer of 2021. While they were back visiting they got to see family and friends too which if you ask me, getting photos taken and getting to see loved ones sounds like a pretty perfect get away!

Amy and Nick, thank you so much for trusting me and listening to my crazy ideas of how to get to the locations you guys wanted before the sun came down. You were both amazing models and since you guys nailed it during our session, I have no doubt in my mind that you guys will nail it again on the wedding day! I hope you love these photos and can remember this time together visiting your family and friends and meeting me! The way you too look at one another is pure love and I am so happy for you both. Enjoy the next months of being engaged and I can not wait to see you again on your wedding day! xoxo.

 

Leila and Chris Engagement Session | Crane Beach, Ipswich, MA

Leila and Chris Engagement Session | Crane Beach, Ipswich, MA

Last week I woke up so excited to finally get to meet Leila and Chris! When I got downstairs to pour myself a cup of coffee, it seemed so dark in the house! I looked outside and sure enough it was dark! I checked the weather and as soon as I did, it started to downpour! I was so confused. I’ve been checking the weather for this day since it was in the 10 day forecast! So, I checked again. It said rain!  I texted Leila and we both decided to keep the session as is, and continued to check the weather throughout the day.  As it got closer to the time we planned to meet the weather was looking good. We met at Crane Beach in Ipswich, MA and could not believe how amazing it all was!

We had so many different kinds of lighting happening during our session together, it just made my heart so happy! These two not only looked like models but the location and different views of the ocean plus the amazing light we had, had me screeching with excitement though out our time together! These guys were up for a long walk on the beach to start in the perfect spot with not too many people. I loved getting to know them and hearing all the things they have planned so far for their Granite Links Wedding next August!

Chris proposed this past July 3rd on Cape Cod after taking a long walk on the beach. It was so sweet to hear them talk about the night they got engaged and the celebration with family they had that night! I am looking forward to meeting all of them! Just as they were telling me about their proposal, I noticed a rainbow in the sky behind them! I had them take a minute to look at how amazing it was! I could not believe it! It was just so beautiful and it 100% added on to how amazing the night was! As soon as our session ended and we got in the car, the skies opened up and there was a downpour! If you can’t already tell I am still in shock and so excited about this session and the light/weather we had! Just check out their photos and you can probably feel the excitement through them!

Leila and Chris, THANK YOU! You guys were so much fun and so awesome for walking far, getting your feet wet and mastering all the poses I taught you! I am so excited to see you guys again for your wedding day! Until then, enjoy these images together and good luck choosing one for your Save the Date! I had way too many favorites and I have a feeling you might too! xoxo

Marie and Matt Engagement | Duxbury Beach, MA

Marie and Matt Engagement | Duxbury Beach, MA

If you have followed me now for quite some time, I think it is safe to say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE photographing on the beach. It does not matter to me what beach it is, but gimme the ocean, salty air, amazing light and a gorgeous couple and my heart is happy! I met Marie and Matt at Duxbury Beach last week and my goodness we were all in for a treat! Duxbury beach is so pretty during sun set with lots of different areas to talk around so we had nice variety in location and lighting.

I just loved hanging with them and learning about who they are as a couple and all about their wedding day! They are getting married May 29, 2021 and I just know that their wedding day is going to be amazing just like how this session was! They had me laughing when they were telling me all about the proposal and they said that Matt was so nervous that he said ” I just can’t take it anymore” and he asked. I just imagined that moment and then she said yes and the rest is history! Here they are, two high school sweet hearts, planning their wedding day.

Marie and Matt, Thank you so much for such a fun night! I can not get over how the sky looked toward the end of our session and I am for real when I say you guys could be models! You 100% nailed it and you now have wayyyyy more than just 1 nice photo of the two of you together. I am so excited to see you again for your wedding day but until then, I will just continue to look at these amazing photos of your engagement. It was really hard to choose just a few favorites so get ready…. 🙂

Katelyn and Ben Engagement Session | Barr Farm, Duxbury

Katelyn and Ben Engagement Session | Barr Farm, Duxbury

Can I just tell you that when I saw Katelyn get out of the car, I was so excited to meet her and when I saw her beautiful dress, I said Girl! We match!! I was wearing a light pink shirt with stripes so I felt like we all matched for our session together so if we got separated, someone could have helped point us in the direction of the other one wearing pink stripes! haha.

Katelyn and Ben were so much fun! I just loved how much he made her laugh! They have the sweetest personalities and it’s evident how in love they are. Katelyn’s daughter Alexa joined us for this session and it was so amazing to see how much Ben loves her too! The way he looks at both of his girls made makes my heart smile! What an amazing story they have and an amazing little girl who will be in their wedding standing next to them as they exchange their vows.

Katelyn, Ben and Alexa, Thanks for hanging out with me on the most perfect August night! The location you picked is one of my favorites and I am so thankful for you guys getting in the quick sandy waters for an epic family photo! I hope you love your photos and I can not wait to see you for your wedding day!

Christine and Mike Engagement Session | Boston, MA

Christine and Mike Engagement Session | Boston, MA

The day of meeting Christine + Mike for their engagement session, she texted me that she was on the way to 👏🏻get 👏🏻her 👏🏻ring 👏🏻cleaned 👏🏻!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I replied back with a GIF of someone wearing a diamond and the sparking bling was blinding! It was just that when I saw this ring sparking in the sunlight! Mike did an A+++ job, just check out these ring photos!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So let me fill you in on a little something. Photographers who L O V E details like I do, will get up close and personal with your bling. We have to! If you want a sparkling photo of that super special detail of your wedding day, I’m your girl… and this girl is going to recommend you get that baby cleaned right before our engagement session and the wedding day! This way you can be sure your photos will be 💯 sparkling, just as it was when he picked that special diamond out for you.

I met Christine and Mike at the Esplanade in Boston. The weather was absolutely perfect for a night walking around, getting to know each other and taking photos! The sunset at the end of the session was just beautiful and I just loved capturing them together sharing so many amazing little moments. The way Mike looks at her was as if there was no one else there but them…and let me tell you, there were a lot of people walking, running, riding bikes, and hanging out ( all with masks on). It did not even phase them that there were people there as walked around finding the best light, and locations. All that mattered was that they were together… and I was there… following them around. 🙂

Christine radiates joy! Her positive energy is so contagious, and you just can’t help but smile when you’re around her! I’m pretty sure we laughed and smiled the entire session. Christine and Mike were naturals in front of the camera and were up for anything! They danced on bridges, mastered all of the poses I taught them which moved them up to learning some advanced posing quickly! They are so ready for their wedding day portraits! These are just a few favorites of mine from our session together!

Bobby and Sarah Engagement  Session | Harvard Arboretum

Bobby and Sarah Engagement Session | Harvard Arboretum

This past month I have had 2 engagement sessions at the same location in Boston!  Both couples chose to have their engagement shoot at the Harvard Arboretum… and guess what?? These sessions look nothing alike! The Harvard Arboretum is so big, each session I have had here have all been in different areas! I don’t know about you but I am lovingggggg all of these engagement sessions I have been having this year!

This engagement session is so special because it’s been a long time coming for these two! They have been dating for 9 years and are planning their 2021 wedding. Bobby proposed on their vacation trip to Aruba. Bobby and Sarah were walking at sunset along the beach on our way to meet his family for a dinner reservation on the other side of the island when he asked if Sarah if they should take a photo at the end of the pier – a few short minutes later he dropped down to a knee and asked! Sarah said her first words were “What are you doing?” – followed by a shell-shocked yes and an even longer embrace in which her usual non-stop chattering self was speechless.  Want to know something funny?? When PJ asked me to marry him, my first words were also ” What are you doing?!” So when Sarah told me this story in our first emails back and fourth, I knew I could not wait to meet them!

These two have such a fun personality! They were so friendly and kind. I loved my time with them so much! It may have been a little humid, and a little hot and sticky, but you would never know in these images! You also can’t tell that we walked up a really steep hill to get some amazing shots in tall grass and while we ( I ) was out of breath shooting, these two photogenic people were all for it and did not complain once! I knew that walking that hill was so worth it!   As you scroll through these images you’ll fall in love with their smiles and the way they look at one another! I cannot WAIT for their wedding day!

Bobby and Sarah, thank you for letting me take you all around and up the hills at the Harvard Arboretum! You are so much fun to spend time with, and I honestly think I could have stayed and talked with you all night!!! I still can not believe that you had an amazing glowy sun set and once our session was over, as I turned my car on to head back home, it rained the whole way!  Enjoy my favorites and get excited to see your full gallery soon!
