Back Bay Engagement Session

Cerridwen + Nic = Engaged

These two are pretty spectacular. Creative, genuine, intentional and charismatic. Oh, and good looking (but we didn't have to tell you that). We have loved getting to know Cerridwen and Nic. Matt spent some time exploring some of Boston's prettiest nooks and crannies with them during their Engagement Session a few weeks back. We always love shooting at the Boston Public Library (the Courtyard always seems to have perfect light) and we think that Nic's fedora transports these images back to a bygone era. We can't wait to capture their backyard wedding on MidCoast Maine later this year (you won't want to miss that one)  which will surely be a sensational day. Thanks for sharing this exciting time with us, guys!

Erica + Mike = Engaged

We're kind of in love with this session. The colors, vibrancy, timeless 'Boston' vibe  AND  a completely in love and adorable Erica and Mike?  It's all pretty perfect. We started this session on their home street in the back bay which was quintessentially Boston (we could have shot there all day) and had to take advantage of some photos of them on their front steps. Often while shooting in Beacon Hill or Back Bay we'll joke with clients that they are just going to go sit on some random person's steps and we'll all pretend that they live in this gorgeous brownstone with a blue door (because the color and textures photograph so well). In Erica and Mike's case, we had the privilege of shooting on their *actual* front steps, which not only made for a pretty backdrop but also a fantastic memory for these two as they write their story together and can someday remember when they lived there. After shooting around their house we zipped over to the Boston Public Garden right before the skies opened up and poured rain. The color and twilight in the last series of images is so fascinating to us and just proves how mother nature is always keeping us on our toes as natural light photographers. While we thought we may have some dewy soft sunset light we got a clean and cool look instead, which we love. Erica and Mike will be on the blog again very soon as they prep for their August nuptials in Newport, RI. It's bound to be an amazing day!
