BOSTON ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY
WHY DO AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION IN BOSTON?
- we all get to know each other before the wedding
- you get beautiful portraits of you looking great in your regular clothes
- if you aren’t getting married in the city, it’s a chance to use important locations as part of the story
As such a walkable and tiny gem of a city, Boston in particular is great for engagement portraits. There is such a variety of locations in relatively small area that we can cover by foot or public transportation.
WHEN SHOULD YOU SCHEDULE YOUR ENGAGEMENT PORTRAIT SESSION?
Schedule your engagement portrait session at least a few months before the wedding. We will the best time of day to shoot, keeping in mind they will know the best time of day for the light. I prefer to shoot in the early to mid afternoon so we can harness the most beautiful natural light.

WHERE SHOULD YOU DO ENGAGEMENT PORTRAITS?
Choose a location that means something to the two of you – a part of your life together or a place that holds a special memory makes the environment of a portrait resonate. If you are feeling at all shy or uncomfortable about being in front of the camera, we can make the portrait session around an activity you both enjoy – going to the farmer’s market, cooking dinner, taking the dog for a walk, or snow ball fights, etc. I love the challenge of making great images anywhere, especially in a location has special meaning to the couple.
Maybe it’s where you met or one of your favorite places to spend time together. Places that hold a special memory make the portraits resonate. A bit camera shy? Then we’ll focus around an activity you both enjoy – an outing to the farmer’s market, cooking dinner, taking the dog for a walk, snowball fights, pub crawls or whatever is your jam.
