Lauren and Chuck live in DC and we’d hoped to do their engagement session down there, but a last-minute work trip scuttled those plans. Their one regret: not being able to include their puppy in the shoot. They recently made the trek up to Boston to visit with Lauren’s family and do some wedding planning, including their engagement session. These two met during grad school at Fletcher, so the Tufts campus was a fitting location, documenting where it all started, and including a stop where Chuck proposed. We had a beautiful spring day to explore, make portraits together, and work out some of those “being photographed” nerves.

Kristina doesn’t remember the first time she met Joe, though Joe places their first encounter at a bar in Harvard Square. They had mutual friends, and over time their own friendship developed. Kristina left for graduate school in New York City, and soon the two were spending weekends together in New York.

These days, they live in Jamaica Plain, where they enjoy weekly brunches and game nights with friends, and walks and runs around the pond. They love their neighborhood, so are planning a fun and relaxed wedding in Jamaica Plain this fall – everything will be a short walking distance from their apartment. We had fun exploring together on a recent evening – I couldn’t get enough of the different colors and textures, nor of seeing their intent looks, twined fingers and a few fleeting squinchy-nosed smiles.

I love designing wedding albums for my couples. I recently finished and delivered a gorgeous 12×12 slim flushmount album to Jeni and JP from their Friendly Crossways wedding last May. They graciously allowed me into their home to witness them viewing it for the first time. It was such a treat to see them reliving the memories and to hear them commenting on all the photos; “I was so nervous in that one” and “look how happy were are here” and “I love this one of PoPo (grandma) dancing with your dad.”

On a day that was sunnier than it was warm, I met up with Samantha and Drew for their Charles River Esplanade engagement session. The trees were in peak spring bloom, and there was a profusion of daffodils, whose bright color matches Samantha’s sunny nature. These two met in the swing dancing club at Boston College, and I was happy to have them display some of their moves for me. I loved how easily they laughed with each other, and their whole-hearted yeses to any photo ideas I had. They’re planning their wedding for next fall in Concord – combining Drew’s favorite season with a location close to Samantha’s heart – and I’m so excited to be there documenting it for them.

Rebecca and Mike live and work in DC (though not as lawyers, they were quick to point out). They met online, and when I asked Mike what he first noticed about Rebecca, he mentioned the reddish glints in her hair and her beautiful smile, both of which I got to see too with my camera. At their Walden Pond engagement session, I asked each about the other’s best qualities, and I heard about Mike’s generosity and loyalty, and Rebecca’s kindness and intelligence. I loved seeing them together, holding hands and sharing smiles, and I can’t wait for more at their wedding this September on the Cape.
