This gorgeous couple had a really specific look in mind for their engagement photos and I was so excited to work in a much more editorial style than usual.
Eleanor and Angela started their session planning by collecting some inspiration photos on Pinterest. Once they had shared the photos with me, I spent some time looking at the commonalities between the photos, and figuring out prompts I could give the couple to elicit their own natural versions of the poses they liked.
I then started thinking about locations – again, I referred to the inspiration photos and looked for common features and I noticed lots of grand columns as well as some rooftop locations.
The outside architecture of the MFA Boston is neoclassical, featuring grand columns, pediments, and intricate details – it seemed perfect for our session! So I suggested meeting at the quieter back side of the museum to make life a little easier.
For the rooftop portion of the shoot, we used Eleanor’s mom’s magnificent rooftop terrace in Beacon Hill – what a treat! We were also able to include their sweet pup in a few photos.
Angela and Eleanor absolutely KILLED this session, from their wardrobe (stunning) to the poses, to their wonderfully bubbly personalities which shone through. I am so excited to be photographing their fall wedding at the Boston Public Library this October!
I loved photographing this editorial style Boston engagement session for something different – if you’d like your own photos like these, please reach out!
