Boston Public Library Engagement Session: Kate + Danny

Dec 7, 2010 | Engagements

A couple of Saturdays ago, I met up with sweethearts Kate and Danny for their engagement session.  It was a bitterly cold day, so we took shelter in the Boston Public Library (such a great space for engagement photos).  Of course, the couple of photos we took outside at the end of the session turned out to be my absolute favorites (what can I say?  The sun is my favorite light source!) so I’ll start with one of those:

Danny and Kate met on eHarmony (yay for internet dating – that’s how Josh and I met too!)  They are the absolute perfect match, too – smart, sweet and just a little bit quirky.  They really seem to fit.  I loved watching them interact; they had very little input from me during our session.  Our first stop in the library was the grand staircase; I love this space, and the amazing murals there:

Then, we headed into the (very busy) reading room.  Another gorgeous spot:

OK, so I couldn’t resist a few more photo in the grand hallway .  I really like those huge pillars.

We had a wander through the library and decided to take some photos with these book shelves.  The lying on the floor was all them and I love it!

Bold architecture, crazy light, and lots of leading lines …

We headed out to the little courtyard at the library for some outdoor shots and I like this sweet sequence of Kate and Danny chatting.  The look of love on Danny’s face when he talks to Kate is immense.  🙂

I’m a big fan of this architecture; the lamps are the perfect frosting:

After a few more stops in the library, we headed over to the Christian Science Plaza.  It was *so cold* so we only managed a few minutes over there, but I love what we got.  The light was pretty special:

Huddled tight and trying not to freeze – there’s something so sweet about this little series:

The light, the light!

Thank you Danny and Kate for a fun afternoon, and for braving the cold outside.  I loved getting to know you better and can’t wait for your wedding next fall!


  1. I love these, Kate! That was such a fun day, and I can’t decide which ones (or which location) I like best! I couldn’t agree more – the light is amazing 🙂 We are going to have SO much fun at the wedding.

  2. WOW! Just gorgeous shots Kate! The library pictures are just stunning!

  3. GAH! GORGEOUS! LOVE the second shot down (omg that place is so pretty), the ones of them laying down with the books and the two black and whites with the gorgeous light. You did such a fantastic job Kate! 🙂 Love loveity love love!

  4. Thank you all for the lovely comments! Kate – SO excited for your wedding. We will indeed have lots of fun 🙂

  5. Kate, these photos are amazing! It is hard to pick a favorite when they are all beautiful! I particularly love the ones under the light with the pillars! Most importantly, the pictures show how happy you are! Congrats Kate and Danny. Beautiful pictures! Very happy for you both! 🙂
