Dawn and Robbie met playing tennis. Robbie is a professional tennis instructor, and Dawn just happened to enroll in some lessons. Their meeting turned into a friendship which eventually turned into a budding romance and now they are preparing to tie the knot on the North Shore this October. We’ve been working with Dawn and Robbie since last fall, but since they live in NYC and we in Boston, their engagement session was the first time we officially met in person. We felt like we knew them since we had been chatting with them over e-mail for so long, but there really is no better connection than meeting in person. These two were twice as lovely as our expectations, (which were high anyway) and our time with them made us even more thrilled that we get to shoot their wedding. For their engagement session, they brought along their sweet chocolate lab, Miley, who was a person-magnet in Central Park. Everyone wanted to stop and pet Miley – but who could blame them with a sweet face like that? One of the best parts of photographing in the spring are the blooming trees. We felt like we’d hit the goldmine with an arbor of wisteria, and then our pick of any of the blooming cherry blossom trees in the park. Dawn and Robbie are perfect compliments – both to the serene setting central park provided as our backdrop – and to each other. We can’t wait for their wedding in October!
