Boston Engagement Session

Emily and Alex’s Boston engagement session began on the famed Acorn Street. It is literally dubbed ‘the most famous street to be photographed in America’ and for good reason! It’s… freaking GORGEOUS! I have to say if I lived there I would be pretty annoyed by the deluge of instagram influencers that walk around like they own the place, leaning up on doors in droves, in their not Acorn Street suitable heels. But honestly, how can you blame them? This craggy little cobblestone street, covered with freshly fallen leaves… just about took my breath away. Emily, Mark and I were super quick because I wanted to be respectful of their neighbors. I gave a few tips to some iPhone photographers, cheered others on and left as quickly as I came!

The next stop on our Boston walking tour brought us through the Boston Public Garden. It was a gorgeous day, which meant that the park was packed with people, so we didn’t stay that long. But we bopped alone under the bridge and through the paths, people watching and keeping our distance.

This little walkway was MAGICAL so we spent some time there, soaking up the light. So… universe can you please please send me more Boston engagement sessions? mmmkay?

Isn’t this GORD-geous? Get it? Get it?

We walked through the Boston Public Garden to the Esplanade by the Charles River for some photos. The Hatch Memorial Band Shell is so stunning, I believe I could literally do an entire session there!

As we were winding down I asked Alex when he knew Emily was the one. He broke into the biggest smile as he recalled the time and shared the story with us. I love seeing my clients faces light up when they talk about how they met or when they fell in love. Wedding planning- ESPECIALLY DURING A PANDEMIC- can be a super stressful time. Making space to get back to what’s the most important thing; it’s not where we do our photos, or when they even get married. It’s that they met, that they love one another and have made the commitment to be loyal, loving partners to one another. That’s the stuff that keeps me doing what I do.
