Cara & Pete: Engaged – Boston Public Gardens

At last count, I'd done nearly 150 engagement shoots. Never, in all that time, has a shoot been rained out more than once. Cara and Pete's shoot wasn't rained out just once (or twice), but three times. In the end though, it was totally worth it (despite, as Cara put it, it being, "winter" by the time we wrapped up), and Cara and Pete made my job ridiculously easy. Literally I think my instructions were, "That would be a cool photo over..." and they were already laughing and smiling in the spot I was thinking of. I'm already looking forward to their wedding next summer.

Allison & Mike: Engaged – Rockport

Looking out the window today, it's hard to believe this shoot was only two weeks ago (and I'm jealous that as I write this, Allison and Mike are back in Texas where it's most certainly not 19-degrees). They were in town for a long weekend of wedding planning, and we managed to find a few minutes for their engagement shoot up along the coast in Rockport. I hadn't been there in a few years, but clearly need to revisit it soon, the photos possibilities are limitless. Here's a few of my favorites:

Kathryn & Tyler: Married – Hampshire House

It's been quite a few years since I photographed a wedding at the Hampshire House (I think it was literally my 5th or 6th wedding ever), but it was fun to go back to close out my 2014 season with Kathryn and Tyler. As I mentioned in the post from their engagement shoot, these two met in high school (and had photos from their prom at the wedding!) Their wedding day now feels like it was the last warm day of 2014, especially when as I type this, Dark Sky is telling me it's currently 19-degrees outside with the windchill. Spending the day with these two, running around the Public Garden and Beacon Hill for portraits, and then being part of their ceremony and reception were all things that direclty lent to one of the warmest, most intimate and welcoming weddings of the year. Special thanks goes out to Michele and her team at the Hampshire House for making sure everything went off without a hitch. A few of my favorite images:
