A couple of weeks ago I had the chance to help out and shoot with a fellow wedding photographer here in Boston. Sam Liang of Ze Liang Photography was shooting Rebecca and Mark’s engagement session at MIT and then down by the Charles River at the MIT boathouse just on Memorial Drive. I came along to help out with reflectors, lighting and to get an extra couple of shots as well.
Boston as a city, I have found to have a fantastic local, and even not so local, community of photographers, willing to share and help each other out at almost a moments notice. The great thing about this is knowing that you are surrounded by a very good network of professionals who are able to help out when needed.
Rebecca and Mark were having their wedding day, the following weekend (again photographed by Sam) and they looked just great together in the grounds of the MIT campus. The wonderful buildings and the early evening light provide a classic setting for a Boston engagement shoot. The large pillars of the main MIT building gave a perfect backdrop and fantastic control over the lighting conditions. MIT is a really great location for engagement photos.
We finished off the MIT engagement shoot down by the water, with the familiar Boston skyline in the background and surrounded by the sailboats at the MIT boathouse. The jetty here gave a low vantage point onto the water and with the light now dipping below the tree line behind us and casting a warm glow over our couple. The evening provides some of the best lighting and these locations really capture it very well.
Sam did a great job capturing their MIT engagement photos and you can check these out and some more of his work at Ze Liang Photography.
