Engagement photographs in the snow

I mean...it is not for everyone.  But, since I grew up in Alaska I am more than game to play in the snow.

You have the eye of someone I have seen

Exploring the woods of Habitat Wildlife Sanctuary in Belmont for an engagement session

 happy couple in the woods at habitat wildlife sanctuary in belmont, ma

Engagement sessions should entail lots of cuddling.  Especially if the way you enjoy life is exploring and strolling through the woods together.  I love incorporating a documentary approach even into engagement/portraiture sessions as doing an activity results in more natural moments.

A very snowy engagement

 snowy engagement shoot in winter at mass audubon's habitat wildlife sanctuary in belmont

I grew up in Alaska, and this am always trying to talk people into winter engagement sessions, haha. Layers look great in photographs, and snow is such fun. The cold forces a certain closeness.  Plus, you can have a snowball fight.

Engagement silhouette

"I am silver and exact. I have no preconceptions.
Whatever I see I swallow immediately
Just as it is, unmisted by love or dislike.
I am not cruel, only truthful ‚
The eye of a little god, four-cornered.
Most of the time I meditate on the opposite wall.
It is pink, with speckles. I have looked at it so long
I think it is part of my heart. But it flickers.
Faces and darkness separate us over and over." - Sylvia Plath

An engagement walk along the Charles River

 goofy engagement photograph taken along the charles in cambridge, ma

Of course, in every engagement session many "formal" or classic portraits are made.   Often used for NYT announcements, websites, or invitations.  But, I always encourage people to just have fun, and let their personalities or relationship be documented.  These two were super nerdy, super goofy, and had a blast.

Fort point engagement session, Boston

All of my couples are real humans. Normal, and complete with a lack of experience in front of the lens. Engagement sessions take many forms, but the goal of each is to get to know one another before the day, have fun, get familiar, and capture beautiful and authentic images.  These two became quite comfortable, and really let loose with their fun loving, nerdy side.

Fall Engagement Session - Newburyport and Sunflower Farm

corn field engagement photo

How about a stroll around the Newburyport area?   Complete with cornfields and sunflowers?  Yes, please.  More importantly, Brad and Lindsay were revisiting their old stomping grounds, and I loved watching the joking/playful relationship these two have.  So easy going, and I could tell they loved walking around some of their favorite places....especially when we got to pet the cutest 6 week old puppy ever.  Fall engagement "season" has officially started around here!  Enjoy

Downtown Boston Engagement Photography

engagement session on the esplandae

I am terribly excited to spend next 4th of July weekend with these two at the Intercontinental Hotel.  We ventured from the ICA through Boston to the Esplanade for their session....getting lost in an Uber along the way, and magically ending at the very spot of their first date.  These two were so natural together, and I loved our time together.

Stonehurst Mansion Engagement Session

Lindsey and Will's Engagement Session

I can't wait to spend their wedding day with these two.  I learned we share an affinity for hiking and the outdoors when they began the shoot in their home near Davis Square with them planning their next hike in the White Mountains.  From there we jaunted over to the stunning and hidden gem that is Stonehurst....the Robert Treat Paine Estate in Watertown.  We took a stroll through the forest and it was painfully obvious how much in love Lindsey and Will are.  Enjoy.

Sarah and Mark's engagement session on Plum Island

It was such a treat to spend time with these two on Plum Island....revisiting the exact spot  where Mark proposed to Sarah.  A lovely evening spent with to of the friendliest people around.  I can't wait to spend the weekend up in Maine documenting their wedding.

Portsmouth and Kittery Point Engagement Session

Hal and Geoff's Engagement Session

These two were amazing.  Such a dynamic duo, and clearly perfectly suited for one another.  They didn't complain (or even show!) how cold it was that day, or that they were freezing!  I can't wait for their big day this summer and I hope you enjoy.
