I’m photographing Jocelyn and Kyle’s wedding this coming November and had been due to shoot their engagement session a month or so ago, but with the cold temperatures and the snow still blanketing most of Boston and New England, we decided to hold off until things warmed up a tad! This past Saturday we were paid back for the wait, with some warm spring sunshine, that made the whole experience far more pleasant!
Starting off at their home, meant that Maggie could join in on a couple of the photos and that we could get some of their everyday locations in on the shoot as well! I always find it’s nice to incorporate a sense of home and familiarity into your photos when possible.
Not to mention that just around the corner was the chance for some great backdrops to their Boston engagement session!!
I love to keep on the move when shooting engagement sessions in Boston as there is always something new to experience or a different angle to take, and just occasionally you get the odd photo-bomber in on the action as well!
It also gives me the chance to check out new parts of town that I haven’t come across before! I love a good skyline view and this was the first time that I had been to this spot and seen Boston from up here. I couldn’t resist but add a few well known Boston architectural landmarks into the background.
From here we moved down the hill a bit and ended up on the waterfront, in the Seaport District, a favorite area of mine for capturing both landscape photos of the city as well as engagement portraits. In a short walking distance, you have a real variety of settings to work with and the opportunity to build a great set of images.
After that long cold winter that never felt it was going to end, it was so nice to be out with the sun shining and the grass glowing with color! I didn’t think that we were going to see the ground again until the end of the summer!!
Really looking forward to catching up with you both at the end of the year and hope you both have a wonderful summer :)
