Hey guys! It's been awhile. We've missed blogging - and just in time too because we have a roster of great shoots to share and it's officially WEDDING SEASON! Before spring morphs into summer and we wonder where the time went, we had to share some of our favorite photographs from Angela and Tom's Engagement Session in Wellesley, MA at the lovely Elm Bank Horticultural Center. Chuck captured these photos and he'll be returning when they tie the knot this July at Fruitlands. We're in love with the photos and think these three make an incredibly adorable trio. Angela and Tom, little L is lucky to have you as parents. We can't wait for July!
Today we're savoring the last day of summer with Samantha + Chan's Engagement Session shot earlier this season. Chuck joined these two for an afternoon of fun together at the Boston Public Garden and in Beacon Hill. You would never guess that it was nearly 100 degrees with 100% humidity in these photos, right? These two are keeping their cool together and we're loving the photos Chuck caught of them. Although we sense there will be plenty of rich autumn colors coming our way in the next few weeks, today we're living vicariously with these two love birds in the clean bright green light of summer, kicking back in Boston's finest scenery. Congrats!
We may sound like a broken record, but we'll sing it from the roof tops for as long as we can: WE HAVE THE BEST COUPLES. Imagine if your work place was filled with creative, talented, honest, funny, great-to-be-around folks. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, we don't have the pleasure of working in the same space (most of the time) as our clients, but if we did - that would be our life. As it turns out, we still get to enjoy being around these amazing people, and for that you can be a little bit jealous (don't worry, we're probably jealous of you in some way too). Katie and Josh are just these sorts of people. We met Katie at a wedding we photographed back in 2012 when she was a bridesmaid and remembered her being grounded and sweet. When her turn came to have a shinny ring on her finger, we were honored that she asked us to photograph her and Josh's relationship milestones. We are looking forward to their wedding at the Boston Aquarium later this fall, but first we had to steal them away for a few engagement photos around Beacon Hill and the Public Gardens in Boston on a late spring day. There is something about spring that oozes romance and new possibilities, isn't there? Katie and Josh - we can't wait to see you in October!
Today we're thrilled to share a few highlights from Chuck's time with the adorable Katie and Phil during their fall Engagement Session. It's clear that their love for one another bubbles over the brim, and we love the classic, laid-back style these two share. It's no surprise that autumn in New England happens to be one of our most popular times for an Engagement Session, clearly the dewy light and fall colors serve as a perfect backdrop for a couple in love. They will be getting married in Georgia next May, so it's always fun to be able to capture couples before they tie the knot out of state so that they can always remember their time in Boston together. Katie and Phil, if this session is any indication of how your wedding images will turn out, you will have nothing to worry about! We wish you the best as you plan your beautiful wedding and beyond. Congrats!
Sorry for the humble brag, but we have to say it. Our clients are simply the best. We are so grateful to tell love stories for real couples and document it on camera, but it's really the cherry on top of the sundae when our couples are as sweet as Emily and Rob. These two compliment one another so well. Smart, endearing, charismatic, and laid-back; Emily and Rob are well suited for one another. Matt was lucky enough to spend a morning photographing them together in one of our favorite Boston parks, the Arnold Arboretum, and the vivid colors of a humid summer day are just divine. We can't wait to shoot their wedding next May at the Endicott Estate but in the meanwhile we'll have to return to their adorable Engagement Session images for our Emily and Rob fix.
We love us a good Engagement Session. Put two gorgeous people in a stunning Boston backdrop and we're all set. I had the pleasure of photographing Christina and Gabe in their neighborhood of The North End back in June, which in wedding season feels like years ago. Their kindness, genuine spirits and laid back approachability made such an impact on me that I'm dreaming of zipping over to join them for Oysters after work today (meet you guys at Neptune at 5? :)). They will be tying the knot next year in Christina's home state of Michigan, and we're sure that whoever will get to photograph their wedding will be one lucky photographer. We love these glimpses of their life here in Boston and were honored to capture this special time in their lives. Congrats, Christina and Gabe!
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!
It's official. We're in love with this session and these two love birds. Chuck will be shooting their wedding next fall and the only problem with that is that we get jealous of him getting to work with such an awesome couple as Audrey and Patrick. The three of them spent a perfectly brisk fall afternoon strolling through the Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain and we couldn't be more obsessed with the perfect fall color palate and the love oozing out of these photos. Can it be autumn forever?
They say love blossoms in spring, but after this session I've got my money on autumn. The clean crisp air, colorful leaves and sentimental location of this shoot just does it for me! Kimberly and Marty knew they wanted their Engagement Photos on a private family residence, and when said residence includes a large white porch - we're pretty much sold. Kind-hearted and genuine, these two are about as real as it gets. Their love for one another glows and we find ourselves smiling just looking at them. Chuck hit it out of the park with this session and we're excited to be photographing their wedding next May. It's going to be a beautiful day!
Lindsay and Chris are proof that awesome people lead to working with more awesome people. Hear us out. Over two years ago, we booked Christine and Jay's wedding for spring of 2012. Christine was a Salve Regina University alumni and Jay was a Bryant University alum. Since that time we've worked with nearly a dozen couples who have had ties back to this wedding. Whether it was another Salve or Bryant alum who ran across their (or one of their friends') photos - or a direct connection to Christine and Jay - the referrals have spiraled to amazing proportions from this one couple. Word-of-mouth referrals are always our favorite way to meet and photograph couples because it's like when one of your closest friends introduces you a different friend of theirs who you haven't met yet. Everyone ends up jiving and getting along well. This has totally been the case with our Salve and Bryant connection couples. Every. Single. Couple. has been kind-hearted, gracious and genuine. It makes us feel like the luckiest photographers around because at the end of the day we get to work with great people with whom we have a great connection. Lindsay and Chris are a perfect example of this and we love the natural chemistry they share (as well as their stunning good looks!) and can't wait to photograph their wedding next fall on the cape. It's bound to be an amazing day filled with love, laughter and lots of familiar faces.
