It’s going to be a busy week on the blog! In the last seven days I’ve photographed two amazing weddings, as well as Annie and Ryan’s engagement session. I slept for the whole of Sunday (apart from the occasional food break) and now I’m raring to go again. 🙂
I met Annie and Ryan for the first time at their engagement session. They booked me a few months ago, all the way from North Carolina where they currently live. They’re getting married at the Saltwater Farm Vineyard in Stonington, CT and have cast the net wide to find their vendors. Lucky me! So we met, said hello, and went straight into pictures. I can’t imagine how awkward that must have felt for them, but the smiles were big and the laughter seemed very genuine, so maybe it wasn’t all that bad …
The setting for our session was Cambridge boat club, where Annie’s uncle is a member. Both Ryan and Annie rowed through school and I’m pretty sure that they are rowing superstars (of course their modesty got in the way of them telling me that … but it would seem to be so).
A boat club isn’t the most obvious place for cute couples shots, but I really enjoyed the challenge …
I loved the boat shed, and the cool partial-silhouette shots we got in there. We also headed inside the club house – and I couldn’t resist a photo in the amazing semi-circle window:
I love how silly and goofy these guys are together, even in front of the camera, and with a photographer they’d never met before. 🙂
Our final stop was Crema Cafe in Cambridge. They spend a lot of time in coffee shops, and figured they should do a little during the photo session. It’s a gorgeous spot.
Thank you both for a fun afternoon, and I hope you’ve enjoyed the teaser photos!
