A couple weeks ago Matt and I took a drive up to York Beach for an engagement session with one of our couples, Karlyn and Joe. Joe’s family has a house up there (yes, nows the proper time to be jealous!) and this is where they have spent many summers together. These two are so cute! They gave us a walking tour of the town and took us to a couple of their favorite spots. It really is such a beautiful place. We lucked out with gorgeous weather, beautiful location, adorable couple and to top it all off Matt and I got a taste of, hands down, the best oysters we’ve ever had! Thank you guys for introducing us to this gorgeous place!
You might remember Katie and Gabe from the images we posted of their recent engagement session at Crane Estate. Let me tell you, I knew these guys would be a lot of fun on their wedding day but I was completely unprepared me for just how relaxed and full of laughter Katie was when I arrived at her house two Friday’s ago. I thought for sure after the fog and relentless bugs these two endured during their engagement session that we would be greeted for their wedding with sunny sky’s. In-spite of the rain both Katie and Gabe smiled throughout the whole day, it was an absolutely beautiful wedding, Matt and I were both honored to be a part of it! On a side note… Although many couples are not thrilled at the prospect of rain on their wedding day, from the photographers end this does create the opportunity for some unique imagery that you wouldn’t get otherwise! There will be a slideshow following soon, for now I hope you enjoy looking through these images of their wonderful wedding! Congratulations Katie and Gabe!!!
Matt and I were excited to receive a call from these two about a month ago letting us know that they were going to be in town for a few days and asking if we could do their engagement session. We have booked many couples this year who live out of state but are having their weddings here in the Boston area (Skype has become a very useful to us!). We absolutely love this! The only downside is that many times we don’t get to do an engagement session or any sort of in person, face to face meet before the wedding day. Needless to say we were thrilled to be able to fit in a session with them before they tie the knot this October 2nd. Here are some of the images from their engagement session!
Lauren and Chris were the perfect example of why we do engagement sessions! Engagement sessions for us are not just about great pictures (don’t get me wrong, we make sure you get those!), to us they’re very much about getting to know our couples. We try to have the couple pick something for their shoot that they will have fun doing, keep them laughing and completely relaxed. I knew Matt and I would have a blast with these two when Lauren suggested meeting up in Beacon Hill and exploring Boston on foot… She declared that this was one of her and Chris’s ways to spend time together… Wandering, trying to decide on the best place to eat, eating and then wandering more. While Matt and I were in school together we would wander for hours doing the exact same thing. We could not have asked for a better day for weather, it was sunny, breezy day. These two made our job so easy! They were laughing the whole time, I don’t think Matt or I had to crack a single bad joke throughout our time with them. We can’t wait for their wedding this September at the Boston Harbor Hotel Lauren and Chris; I hope you both enjoy looking through this set… More to come soon!
