When making plans for engagement shoots, the first thing I always ask couples is, "What do you do on your days off? What do you weekends look like?" The goal of a great engagement shoot is twofold - to create fun photos doing something or going somewhere we won't have a chance to at their wedding, and for the couple to have a chance to see how I work and for me to see how they best photograph. In the past that's meant surfing, trips to the beach, The Boston Garden, and backflips in a local swimming hole, and when I had that conversation with Alyssa and Jason a few weeks back, they mentioned that most year's they'll visit West Springfield's Big E. Needless to say, I was immediately WAY in on this idea. Whack-A-Mole? Check. Ferris wheel? Got it. Elephant ride? Wait, what? Yup, scroll down for one of the more adventurous shoots of the year.
