I met Emily and Carlos back in October 2011 on a wintery night out in Waltham to discuss their Boston wedding photography coverage, and I was extremely happy when a week or so later they said that they would like me to shoot their day. They are getting married next month at the Nine Zero Hotel in Boston just near Park Street and the State House, with what sounds like a very wonderful and intimate wedding.
We had spoken about doing an engagement shoot in Boston and were waiting for the weather to pick up a little, not that this winter was a bad one at all. Emily and Carlos both love the Beacon Hill part of Boston and this would prove to be a great location for their engagement shoot. We met up at the Nine Zero Hotel so that we could go through the location and check the venue and see where they were going to have their day. We then had just a short stroll across Boston Common and into the Beacon Hill area.
We start off at the very beautifully cobbled Acorn Street. This wonderful old street provided the perfect backdrop to start Emily and Carlos’ Beacon Hill engagement session. Whilst the weather hadn’t been as warm as it had been just a few days before, we still had a very nice day to shoot.
It was great fun working with these two and I really can’t wait for their wedding day next month! Engagement sessions really are a great way to get to know each other as well as to capture some really great shots! It means that come the wedding day you are more comfortable in front of the camera and we can concentrate on capturing those great emotion between the two of you.
After shooting on some more of the wonderful streets around Beacon Hill, we stopped in for a quick coffee and ice tea break! We popped back out again just to catch the sun starting to drop over Boston and to give us the opportunity to get a couple of lens flared shots to finish off their Boston engagement session.
Emily and Carlos, you guys were really fun to shoot with and I think that we got some really great shots that day. I’m really excited to catch up with you both next month for the big day!
