Jessica and Truman are such a fun couple and were so excited to have their engagement session at Elm Bank in Wellesley. Jessica is a garment designer so she showed up in a brilliantly colored red dress with matching Louboutin shoes. The pop of red looked amazing among the lush green gardens.

There’s not much I need to say about this gorgeous Newburyport engagement session I had with Robyn and Andrew. The light was perfect, the locations were dreamy, their outfits were on point and their joy shines through in every photo. We began at Maudslay State Park, where the rhododendron trees were in full bloom. Around each corner there was one stunning sight after another.
Lauren and Bernie’s engagement session started off in the picturesque streets of Charlestown, where they live. We took the walk up to the Bunker Hill monument where we soaked in the incredible view of Boston and the Zakim bridge. They were total naturals in front of the camera and lit up with huge smiles whenever they looked at each other.
This gorgeous couple is getting married at Beauport next year in Gloucester. They chose to have their engagement session in the Boston Public gardens, Beacon Hill and the Esplanade. Quick to smile and so clearly in love, they made my job photographing easy! Such a perfect fall day for the perfect couple.
Lisa and Alex were looking glamorous for their October engagement session in Back Bay. We began at the Boston Public Gardens right as the leaves were turning. It was a crisp fall day and Lisa braved the chilly weather in a beautiful dusty pink dress. We then took the short walk to Beacon Hill for that classic Boston look. Finally we made the trek to the esplanade right as the sun was setting. The clouds were hiding the golden glow but the sky was dramatic nonetheless. We can’t wait for their big Armenian-Montenegrin wedding coming up next year at the Danversport Yacht Club!
Yasmine and Osama have a complicated story about their engagement session. They originally scheduled it in Calgary, but forest fires caused it not to happen at all. Not to be deterred, they decided that if the mountains wouldn’t work out then they could capture a beautiful city-scape of Boston in the fall. Little did they know that unpredictable New England weather would almost ruin their plans!
Haley and Joe are two of the sweetest people I've met. It was clear from the first few minutes how much they are devoted to each other. We met at World's End on a warm summer's evening as the sun was slowly making it's way down to a golden glow. I warned Haley to wear comfortable shoes since we ended up walking miles along the rolling hills, exploring all that World's End has to offer. The best part was when we got to the quiet forested area and then spotted 3 deer - two does and a fawn. We walked a bit further then saw many more of all ages in the long grass, seemingly unfazed by our presence. We ended up seeing 11 total that evening, which was such a magical experience. What good luck as they embark on their journey as soon-to-be husband and wife!
I met Jen and Grant on a summery day at the Boston Public Gardens with their adorable dog, Frankie. The rambunctious 1 year old pup stayed still long enough for some quick photos before being brought home by Jen's mom. We then walked around the gardens taking in the sights and grabbing some beautiful shots by the pond. This stylish couple made my job easy and I loved the coordination with the pop of red in Jen's shoes and earrings and Grant's pocket square!
I met Jessica and Sal on a warm sunny afternoon at the Acton Arboretum. I had never been there before and was so surprised to find such a hidden paradise! Sal is originally from Acton so it was a spot he knew well. We took their sprightly dog, Mia, on a walk around the park. She was interested in everything besides the camera but that didn't matter as she had a great time being outdoors exploring. We continued around the winding paths, discovering the spring flowers and woods while the sun was setting perfectly, casting a golden glow. I can't wait to be a part of their wedding this fall at the Beauport in Gloucester!
I met Margaret and Colin on a picture perfect day in the Boston Common gardens. The sun was shining, the flowers were in bloom and we had the perfect afternoon to explore! We walked around the swan pond and then made our way over to the iconic Acorn street. After a few photos on the cobblestones, we headed over to the esplanade to catch the last part of the beautiful sunset over the water.
A truly special moment happened when a young buck and a doe appeared out of the woods. We were walking in a shaded area right before the sun went down when they silently crossed our path. The buck wasn't afraid and even gave me the chance to get a couple closeup shots looking right at the camera! What an unforgettable evening with one of the best sunsets I've seen in ages. Spring is finally here in Boston and I for one couldn't be happier!
Gloucester is such a special place to spend a sunny October afternoon! Paige and John first got to know each other when they were living in the area so it only made sense to have their engagement session there. Their go-to bar was Cape Ann Brewing right in the town center. After taking a quick walk around the Gloucester, we headed over to Half Moon Beach. There the sun was just beginning to set and lit up the trees with a gorgeous golden glow. We scaled rocks and explored the coast until it was time to head back. What a perfect fall evening!
Terra and Jamey are too adorable for words! Always smiling and laughing, it's clear how much they love each other. Terra works at the New England Aquarium training seals and sea lions - pretty much every animal lover's dream job. We had such a great time wandering around Boston during a chilly but sunny February day. The snow was gone but at least we got a gorgeous sunset! They're getting married this October at the State Room in Boston and I for one can't wait to be there for their big day.
Spending time in World's End, it's hard to imagine that you are so close to Boston. The quiet, idyllic hills and coastline have been kept pristine for generations, thanks to The Trustees of Reservations. We met on a warm fall day when the leaves were just beginning to turn. The sun gave out that golden hue as we walked around with Benji, their little French Bulldog pup. I don't think Jess and Sin can take a bad photo as their glamorous style lit up the natural beauty around them. The session came to an end all too soon as the sun retreated. We could have spent hours exploring all World's End has to offer!
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!
Being around these two quickly made me realize that Breezy and Tim truly are best friends. They've been together for 6 years and their smiles are contagious! We had such a wonderful afternoon exploring the cliff walk and goat island as the sun was setting. I can't wait to be a part of their big day next June on the Cape!
When Tom first saw Kendra, she was stepping out of an Uber in Union square. That moment changed the course of both of their lives forever. Tom wanted to surprise Kendra by asking her to marry him in the spot where it all began. After having dinner in Davis Square, Kendra thought that they were meeting a friend for drinks at Backbar in Union. As they walked in the square, Tom got down on one knee and proposed. Immediately Kendra was so overcome with emotions that she dropped to her knees crying tears of joy saying "yes".
Cory is lucky enough to have a historic family farm in Portland, Connecticut. His grandparents and uncle live there and take care of the beautiful gardens and farm. It is a true paradise that will be in the family for generations to come. What better spot to have Emily and Cory's engagement photos! We took a tour around the grounds, visiting the cows, chickens, cats, and a shy but colorful pheasant. The highlight was the beautifully manicured gardens, which were designed by Cory's uncle who is also a painter with a studio in the re-purposed barn. It was such a perfect and relaxing day being able to spend it in such a beautiful spot.
This is what happens when your clients just happen to moonlight as models. They won't admit it but we know the truth. The lighting was incredible this warm afternoon as Tammie and Levan took a romantic stroll through the columns at Larz Anderson Park. What a perfect couple! We are so excited to be shooting their wedding taking place later this year at the Villa.
What do you get when you combine the perfect couple, the perfect dog and the perfect light? THESE PHOTOS! Love these guys, I've been holding off on posting this session because I wanted to do it justice. I cannot wait for their wedding in August!
