Nicole + Tom Engaged | Boston Public Garden | Boston, MA

Boston Public Garden has been one of my favorite places to shoot for quite some time. At any point in the year, you can see the smiling faces of Bostonians walking through the park and children playing by the Make Way for Ducklings statues facing Beacon Hill.

I met Nicole when she was a bridesmaid in another wedding I photographed about a year and a half ago. Two days before Christmas, I met up with her and her fiance Tom for their engagement session. The weather couldn’t have been better. A crisp December day (not too cold!) mixed with a little holiday cheer is enough to put anybody in a good mood! Nicole + Tom were wonderful to work with, even if one of them (ahem, TOM) needed a little coaxing to smile… talking about his mom’s homemade pierogie’s and their honeymoon plans to Hawaii were definitely enough to get some sweet smiles and natural laughter out of both of them.

N+T:
Can’t wait for your Fall wedding!! Woot!

Shauna + Rick Engaged | Autumn Worcester Engagement | Worcester, MA

I absolutely love Autumn Engagements.

Autumn is the busiest time of year for most New England photographers. So many couples choose to get married or engaged this time of year, and my days begin to fill up shooting beautiful fall engagements and weddings exploding with red, orange, and yellow autumn colors.

Shauna is such a sweetheart, and has been following our photography since our early days when Andy and I were Normand Ashley Photography. I’m not sure how we connected, but we did awhile back. She is also a photographer and was even assisting with me earlier this year. When she got engaged a few months ago and reached out, I couldn’t have been more thrilled.

The wind was out of control on the day of their engagement. It tossed Shauna’s beautifully done hair all around, but to me, beauty lies within these things we call imperfect. Shauna and Rick both looked absolutely stunning, and it helped that Rick is a huge jokester and ham for the camera. They both did amazingly well.

I’ve lived just outside of Worcester for over 4 years now, and I was so grateful when Shauna and Rick agreed to take one car around the city- I honestly don’t know if I could have navigated myself! They were both full of great laughs and smiles the entire session through, and that alone, is a huge success.

Shauna + Rick:
Thank you so much for choosing me to document your love and this beautiful (albeit windy!) day! You two are truly meant to be!

Kara + Dan Engaged | Boston Public Garden | Boston, MA

I just love shooting in Beacon Hill and Boston Public Gardens, so when Kara and Dan told me they wanted to shoot in those areas, I was so excited. With autumn leaves changing later this year, we hit a good amount of gorgeous colors and decent weather the day of their engagement. These two were incredibly easy to work with, take a look at some of my favorite moments from this sweet Boston engagement!

Erin + Brendan Engaged | Mountaintop Engagement | Princeton, MA

So where do I begin with this stunning couple? Just a heads up before you skip to the photos, they claimed they weren’t great with photos. Re-read that sentence before scrolling, because these two are so incredibly adorable and PHOTOGENIC, my head spins when I think about this engagement! We met on top of Mount Wachusett in Princeton just before sunset. And boy did we hit the jackpot. The most gorgeous Fall colors combined with an insane sunset (and THIS COUPLE!)… this shoot will make anyone fall in love with New England.

E+B:
Thank you both so so much for choosing me to document your love, if the wedding is even a fraction of what we got here, I may explode 😉 Can’t wait for next Fall!
