Samantha & Andrew: Engaged – Boston

One of the reasons I encourage all of the couples I work with to do engagement shoots (and why they're included with every package I offer) is because they give us an opportunity for casual photos, often at locations we'll never have a chance to visit on the wedding day. Like say, when a couple lives in downtown Boston and is getting married in northern New Hampshire. My personal challenge with this shoot was to create something awesome for Sam and Andrew, but at the same time make it different then Katie and Scott's shoot in the same location a few days prior. Sam and Andrew were just until recently North End residents, so it made sense for us to kick off our shoot there, before heading over to near their current place in Charlestown for sunset.

Elizabeth & Jake: Married – Omni Mount Washington Hotel

Some venues, well they just never let you down. New England certainy has many such spots, but one of my favorites is the always-stunning Omni Mount Washington. Jess and I spent the weekend there with Liz and Jake a couple of weeks back, and true to form, both the wedding and hotel were gorgeous. It didn't hurt that Jake and Liz were two of the most laid back people I've had the chance to work with ever - plus Liz gave Jake a brand new Nikon as a wedding gift, definitely a surefire way to win your photographer's heart! Throw in Theo the bulldog making a brief cameo (my best friend from their engagement shoot) and you know it's going to be a fun day. A few of my favorites below:
