Almost all of my wedding clients opt to have engagement photos taken, and the gallery above shows a few of my very favorite photos from the last couple of years. I’ve photographed engagement sessions all around Boston, in New Hampshire, Vermont, New York City, Rhode Island, and even in Washington, DC!
I really like to travel to places that have special meaning to my couples – the city where they live, the bar where they met, or perhaps a favorite beach or park. I also love documentary engagement sessions, where I photograph an activity or event, for example shopping together at a farmers’ market, then making lunch, or going on a hike with your dogs, or building sandcastles at the beach. I had one adventurous couple who baked cookies, then did some bike maintenance – it was a totally unique session and perfectly reflected who they are as people, and what they do together in their time off.
When you’re planning your session, try to avoid the hot spots like Boston Public Garden and the Common, or Central Park in NYC; not only are these spots becoming photo cliches, they are almost always packed with people! If you’re looking for an outdoorsy feel, a more remote beach or woodland will give you a little more privacy (no need to worry about PDAs!) and you’ll have a set of photos that’s unique to you.
I offer engagement photography both to my wedding clients and, when I have availability, to other couples. These couples sessions are great to do as an anniversary gift to each other, or even before you’re engaged. If you’re looking for a Boston engagement photographer, drop me a line!
