It is such a dream to photograph this beautiful Newburyport Engagement Session at one of the prettiest spots in Massachusetts. Sierra and Andrew are two musicians who live on the iconic Plum Island in Newburyport. Together they are in a band called Unnamed Colors (check them out!) They perform together regularly so it only made sense that Andrew would bring along his guitar for their session. Sierra is the lead vocalist and pianist for the band but carting around a piano wouldn’t exactly be practical.
We began photographing in Maudslay State Park on a warm September day. The light was beginning to get that golden glow as we walked around the green woods and gardens. Across the street from the park is an outdoor performance space where the couple performed during summers. The day could not have been more perfect!
After their impromptu performance, we took the short drive to their home. Sierra and Andrew changed clothes then we walked to the beach, which is literally right across the street from their home. With the sand in our feet, we walked along the dunes and beach grass over to the jetty. The sun was just about down at this point as they shared a moment together on the jetty. Finally, Andrew rolled up his jeans and they waded into the ocean surf for a kiss. These two have the most romantic and adventurous spirit and I simply cannot wait to photograph their wedding next summer!
