Nancy and Roberto’s Boston Public Garden Civil Ceremony

Simple, pure, honest, family, love and happiness… these are the take home messages that Dan and I took home from Nancy and Roberto‘s Boston Public Garden Civil Wedding Ceremony. These two walked up, read over the plan and then simply took their place before their closest family and friends. The ceremony began humbly and with only one intention: to join these two in legal marriage forever. They laughed, she cried a little bit, and they promised to love each other forever. With a kiss and an embrace they were married.

Behind them, we could see over 3 brides and 3 bridal parties, and even one very happy Quinceañera group! Even though they were all lovely, I felt like we were with the coolest couple in the park… the CITY for that matter. The only thing that mattered that day to them was love and it showed. Walking around with them we passed a crazy stressed out bride focused intently on her photos and I looked back at Nancy and Roberto and loved that they had just gotten married too… and she was happily walking around the park, with all the attention going to the other brides. It was a really sweet feeling for me, to see that humility and the happiness that these two were showing on this, their wedding day.

We had a blast in the park and then headed to their dinner, where they hosted their family and friends, celebrating their newly born marriage. It was a wedding I will never forget.

Kathleen and Jacob’s World’s End Park Engagement Session

We met Kathleen and Jacob at a little coffee shop in Hingham, and embarked on one of our favorite engagement sessions to date.

First we headed to the World’s End Park and felt like we had discovered a hidden treasure. There were wide open spaces, a view of Boston and a view of the ocean. After that, we headed down to the beach and played in the sand. It was honestly a great date night, if you’re looking for something to do with your sweetheart.

These two are having a New Years Eve wedding in Vermont. Our fingers are crossed for snow, unlike this past winter. It is going to be a magical wedding if it’s anything like this engagement session.


Danielle and Will’s Cambridge MA Engagement Session

We have to start by telling you that the way Will looks at Danielle is something we don’t see a lot. He adores her and there is absolutely NO denying it when you see how he holds her, snuggles her, and simply looks at her. It was almost distracting. The energy between these two was something to note. It was like they had known one another all their lives but were in no way, over it.

On the day of our engagement session, Danielle had just moved to Boston, to be with her fiancé Will. As much as she misses Philadelphia, she was so happy to be starting a life with Will here in Boston, even though he won’t eat bologna and she loves the stuff.

We walked around near the Charles and then headed to their neighborhood in Inman Square and visited some of their favorite local haunts. It was a perfect evening, full of laughs and nuzzling. Their wedding looks like it is going to be a joining of two people who will be together forever.


Lyndsey and Ben’s Boston MA Engagement Session

Talk about a gorgeous afternoon! It was a far cry from the weather the day we had to cancel their first scheduled engagement session. It looks like the weather rewarded us for being wise. The leaves in Boston were at their absolute peak for the season and the weather was more than perfect. We got to stroll around the city in buttery light with perfect temps with this sweet couple that we now ADORE! Lyndsey and Ben met us at their absolute favorite restaurant, the Mistral. We had the place to ourselves and got to capture some really fun images of them hanging out in a place they love. We walked to Copley Square and the famous John Hancock building. Later we walked along the Commonwealth Avenue Park and ended the evening at the Esplanade. We couldn’t have asked for more with these two. They were full of love for one another and it was a breeze to get on camera. Their wedding next year is going to be at a music hall, which just might be awesome enough to top this afternoon… but just barely.

We almost forgot, the English Bulldog’s name is Lola!




Kristin and Will’s Saugus MA Engagement Session

If you want to talk about a pretty fall day, we can talk about Kristin and Will’s engagement session at the Breakheart Reservation near Boston, MA. Yes yes, that’s a funny name for a place to photograph true love, but it was actually a blast and a half! The leaves were stunning and it was quiet. Any worries about the light not coming through the trees at the park were wrong. It was lovely! Will knows how to make this lady laugh! She was rockin her carefree giggles the whole time. It was easy as pie to photograph them. Kristin and Will met in college, when she jumped on him one day and said “Hi!” We can tell you the rest of the story when we photograph their wedding next June.
