Last week, I met up with Shana and Rob, whose wedding at the Charles Hotel in Cambridge I’ll be photographing in … wow, less than two weeks! Rob and Shana went back and forth about whether or not to take engagement photos (they both claim to be a little camera shy), but as I explain to all of my couples, if nothing else it’s a great way for us all to get to know each other a little better, and to get everyone loosened up before the big day. Of course, my aim is also to get some really great photos … and I hope that they’ll agree that it was totally worth it. 🙂
We started off just a block or two from their condo in Inman Square, briefly visiting their neighborhood coffee shop and favorite pub:
The guy standing in front of the window in the photo below is actually someone that Shana and Rob know – love that.
Our next stop was Winthrop Square. There are often guitarists playing here, and Shana and Rob like to come and listen to them.
We decided to stop at Om restaurant for a glass of wine. Loved this spot for photos!
We then headed down to the Charles, another spot they love to explore together …
I really like the playfulness in these last shots on the grass:
And I have to finish with one of my favorites from the day – walking through Harvard Square. Thank you both so much for trusting me to take engagement photos with you – I hope there are at least a couple that you love! And see you very soon for your wedding!
