From the first e-mail, Laura and Pete were clear about one thing: they wanted some photos of themselves as newly engaged Somerville-ians. It's not very often that we get to shoot couples in our own neighborhood, so you can imagine our excitement to meet them and capture them in the Boston neighborhood we share a common thread for. Somerville is a quirky and dense place that has a lot of personality and houses some really interesting people. It's been called the Brooklyn of Boston, and one of my personal favorites, the Paris of the New England (okay, it's not really as beautiful as Paris but there are lots of really amazing artists here!) From the moment we connected with these two, it was clear that they were perfectly suited for one another and were completely adorable together. We loved photographing them both in their neighborhood and their home (including meeting their sweet felines) and can't get enough of this session. Congratulations you two!
