A little while ago Laura got in touch with me and asked about the possibility of having some photographs taken of herself and her friend Natalia, who were both living in Boston for six months and studying here after coming over from their home country of Spain. They wanted to have some photos taken of themselves along the Charles River so that they could have some great images of themselves here in this wonderful town.
Whilst wedding, family and landscape photography is my main area of work, as a Boston photographer, I am always open to other requests and a portrait session like this is something I’d hope to do again in the very near future. The Charles River and along the esplanade is a wonderful location for any photo shoot. Be it an engagement photography session on the Charles, a Boston family shoot or simply to have some personal photos taken like Laura and Natalia decided to do. The weather was fantastic on the day and we walked along the esplanade from Charles MGH, west along the river.
We started latish in the afternoon so that we could be along the Charles for a sunset and be able to capture some of the great light that floods across the open expanse of the river at that point. There are some great spots and a good variety of them as well, in a reasonably short distance. This allowed us to capture a wide selection of images and not have to walk far to achieve that.
I have photographed along the Charles River before, shooting a Boston engagement session just near the Science museum and down closer to the sea. It is one of my favorite locations to shoot at and Laura and Natalia were great fun to work with. We managed to get some fantastic images as the sun was setting with the Longfellow Bridge as the perfect Boston backdrop to their images.
Thanks for stopping by,
