Oh how we have big hearts for these two! It's not often that we get to photograph friends and family, but when we do it proves to combine parts of our lives that yield in some pretty great photos (if we're allowed to say that....). Cory is Kendra's cousin, so they've known each other since infancy. Trish has also been in Kendra's life for a long time as their parents were friends and they played together as kids. So Cory and Trish grew up in the same town, but it wasn't until after high school that they re connected as more than just friends. They compliment each other in so many ways, and Trish has fit into Cory's family (and extended family) as if she's always been a part of us. We were thrilled when they asked us to capture this exiting time as they plan for their wedding next May. It's surely going to be a day filled with the best kind of happiness. These two deserve it. Congratulations you love birds! We love you!
We're on to part II of our three part 2012 recap, Engagements! Time and time again, Engagement Sessions prove to be a fun and productive time before the big day. They are low pressure and extremely useful. Like we tell our clients, we're used to working with real couples (not models) so while we have little tips and games to play during sessions, it's still a great idea for you as a couple to get some experience under your belt being in front of the camera for eight or more hours on your wedding day. This way, you can get to know how we work and shoot, and we can get to know you better too. Most people wouldn't plan a wedding without attending a catering tasting, getting dress alterations, a makeup trail or doing a venue walk though - so why would you skip out on a test run with us before the wedding day? Plus, it's always great to have a nice photo of you and your fiancee for Save the Dates, Wedding Websites, mom's mantel or even a facebook profile photo to commemorate the exciting time in your life. Engagement sessions can be nerve racking, but every. single. couple. we've photographed left saying "that wasn't nearly as painful as I thought it would be, in fact it was pretty fun!" In addition to our own wedding clients, we also get the honor of photographing a few couples each year who live in Boston but are getting married in a different part of the country or world. These are a few of our favorite Engagement images from 2012. Tune in later for a HUGE post of some of our favorite wedding images!
