A springtime Boston Public Garden engagement

 
 

There's nothing lovelier than spending springtime in Boston with the one you love.

Cassandra & Chris: lovers of hiking, kayaking, and planting their garden together - with their beloved pup, of course! Chris lived in Boston for years before moving to New York with Cassandra, so they decided to road trip back to the city for their urban engagement shoot at the Boston Public Garden!

They practiced their first dance (and learned they may need a little MORE practice), popped a bottle of champagne (even though they love peach-flavored booze better) and smelled the spring blooms before the rain came.

They’re tying the knot in the Berkshires this summer - can’t wait to get the party started!

A chic winter Boston Public Garden engagement

From the moment they met, Kelly & Jonathan knew there was something extra special about each other. These lovers of Italian food, cuddles, and the great outdoors took a trip to New York City in October, where Jon completely surprised Kelly by proposing in Central Park!

"It's something I replay in my mind almost every night before I go to sleep" says Kelly.

They're getting married next fall outside of Boston, and decided to bundle up in the most fashionable winter attire and adventure around the Boston Public Garden! You would never know, but it was a cool 29 degrees that day with a breeze - but these two rocked their session!

Aditya flew all the way from Chicago to Boston to see his beautiful bride-to-be Megha for their utterly Boston engagement shoot! The pair loves Beacon Hill, so they woke up early on a grey Saturday to bring some sunshine into the city! They're tying the knot in India this month - congrats to the happy couple!

After three years, Dave still makes Dani smile so wide, her cheeks get sore. These two are SO excited to be engaged - and he did it at Dani’s favorite place in the whole wide world: Walt Disney World! They’re planning on tying the knot after Dani finishes grad school. They picked a very unique location for their engagement session: the Massachusetts State House! Dave works at the gorgeous, European-looking mansion that is the State House, so he worked a little magic to let us shoot in the empty building. They rocked their session and finished at the park under the willow trees in the last lick of golden light.

Mother's Day family shoot in Boston

Who has brown hair, runs faster than a cheetah, and wrestles like they're in the WWE Under 11 competition? Kate + Luke! These fantastic kids joined their parents to Boston on Mother's Day to commemorate the end of a chapter and the start of a new one. They're moving across the country in a few weeks, and wanted to give their last goodbyes to Boston. These two were even sillier than they were three years ago when I last photographed them for Kate's 8 year portraits. What I love about parents Brad + Angie is that they agree with my favorite motto: let kids be kids. Let the kids run wild on shoots, because before you know it, they'll be in their high school grad caps giving wonderful teenage attitude. Embrace the silly. Rock it.

Sidenote: Angie is also the fabulous small business owner of Brule Handmade Caramels! I did devour the bag in three days and it was oh so amazing. I'd highly suggest ordering some for yourself, and learn from my mistake and just go for the big bag.
