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.

 

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!

TD Garden + Sea Port Engagement Session | Boston, MA

The first time I met these two blushing brides we chatted for over 2 hours! I loved getting to know all about them and their wedding day planning during our first meeting I was so excited to see them again for their Boston engagement session!

They chose these locations for their session as they talked about Boston having a special meaning to them. They shared their first kiss at the TD Garden after a Justin Timberlake concert there. This was where they wanted to start the session. I loved it! It’s not every day I get to walk around the Garden area so when I got there I was able to scope out a few nice areas just outside so that they can have the natural sun light, pretty greens, a city feel as well as the Garden in the background! To say I was freaking out is an understatement. Each time I got a shot with that glowy sun light creeping through the tree I was squealing like a toddler at Christmas! The light, these ladies and the background was just making me all so happy!

We took an Uber to the next location over to Fan Pier Park for that unbelievable sun set that NEVER gets old with the view of the city. The light was dreamy and the city sky line was just a great backdrop to have us end the night there. I am not kidding when I say I can take photos all night. I mean seriously… it was well past sun set but I had my flashes set up as I worked hard to get that crazy color sky.

Kelsey and Carrie, Thanks so much for braving that high heat with me to get these shots! I had a blast and I can not wait to see you both again, as well as your families when you say “I Do”  in May! Here are just a few of my favorite photos from our session! xo.

About Us

My photographic style is light, romantic, airy and, above all, authentic. I believe photography is about so much more than just images, and I strive to tell stories, frame by frame. I want everyone who looks at my work to feel fully immersed in the scene – because there is far more to a moment than what we see.

Boston Seaport Engagement Session | Brittney & Sean

Boston Seaport Engagement Session | Brittney & Sean

Friends! I have to tell you, I just love the Boston seaport! It’s always a treat for me to be in the city and these engagement photos just make my heart happy! The backdrop of Boston was just the perfect view for these two before heading home to DC. We had so much fun and I can’t stop smiling when going through their images!

Brittney and Sean are planning a winter wedding on Cape Cod at the Sea Crest Beach Hotel! I can not wait to get back there for the 2nd time this year!! Brittney and Sean grew up around Boston and are currently living in Washington DC. They flew to Boston to spend some time with family and then to meet me! They chose this perfect backdrop for their session because Boston is their “home”. They grew up in surrounding neighborhoods and met on a church mission trip to Vermont in 2012! Brittney was in her senior year of HS and Sean was in his junior year. They were best friends for a year before Sean made the first move and here they are!

We had so much fun walking all around the Boston Seaport! They had me laughing at just about every prompt I gave them and I have to say… Sean is such a pro at my nuzzle pose! It was such a great night to end the weekend and I am so excited to share this sneak peek with you of some of my favorites!! Brittney and Sean, I am so excited to meet your friends and family on your wedding day! Thank you for such a fun session! I can not wait to see you guys again! xoxo
