Fenway Park + Boston Public Garden Engagement Session: Kaitlin + Aldo

Nov 2, 2009 | Engagements

It was two whole weeks ago, but I am still bursting with excitement about this: I got to shoot at Fenway Park!  Yeah!!  My fab engagement couple Kaitlin and Aldo managed to get us in to the ball park on a sunny Tuesday afternoon and it was totally and utterly awesome.  We pretty much had free run of the place for a good 30 minutes or so, and after getting over my shell shock I had a ball (pun intended, ha!)  We started out on the outfield, just in front of the Green Monster (which was very cool apart from the crazy light) then headed into the Red Sox dugout for some cute pics on the benches, then jumped on top of it for my favorite shots of the afternoon.  After that we wound our way through the old wooden seats (love the light back there) and ended up high on the terraces.  We took a final few photos from the infield grandstand then headed back to the real world.  I’m glad we stopped by Gate B on the way out – the wide angle shots there were very cool.

Our second stop was another Boston favorite: the beautiful Public Garden.  It’s a great spot for anyone to take photos, but it holds special meaning for these cuties, as it’s where Aldo proposed to Kaitlin.  Love!  I particularly like the shots in that amazing light on the little bridge (especially the one of Kaitlin laughing – she was highly amused by me playing paparazzi in the bushes).  Thank you, thank you, thank you, guys, for making this happen – and for being so much fun to boot. Can’t wait for your Vermont wedding in June!
