Lizzy and Shane's Harvard and Fenway Park Engagement Session || Fenway Park and Harvard in Cambridge, MA||

This is an engagement session that I have been dying to blog about. As someone who has gone to Fenway Park many times to see the Red Sox play, this was absolutely the coolest thing ever to be able to take engagement photos for Lizzy and Shane there.

We started our morning over at Harvard's campus. While Lizzy and Shane were planning ideas for their session, they looked up a few things in the area and found this bench with a beautiful quote. It took us a little while to find said bench because apparently no one on the Harvard campus knew the building that was right behind it. After asking multiple people (including people who worked at Harvard University), we finally got directed in the right direction and found it. 

From there we meandered around Harvard's campus and then got ready to head over toward Fenway. Now I am a Red Sox fan, but Shane is a die-hard Red Sox fan. When we walked onto the field and into the dugout in Fenway Park, Shane and Lizzy had the biggest smiles on their faces. It was by far the coolest experience ever. We got to be in areas that you don't necessarily get to go on tours of the park. We got to go where basically only the players and some other really special people get to go. 

Being right next to the scoreboard on the Green Monster and sitting in actual Green Monster seats was so cool! We even have photos of Lizzy and Shane in the dugout and sitting on top (where only Wally seems to be able to go). 

By the time we had to leave, I felt like I had to pinch myself because this was one of those days where I cannot believe I get to do this for my job. This was such a special session for these two because Fenway Park and the Red Sox mean so much to Shane and Lizzy. They have spent countless nights at games here, and it was the perfect place for them to celebrate their engagement. 

Matt and Noel's Engagement Session|| Castle Island || Boston, MA

This adorable couple with two sweet dogs started off my season of wedding photography a couple of weeks ago with a beautiful shoot on Castle Island in Boston, Massachusetts. While I have lived in the Boston area for just about 10 years now, that was my first time out to Castle Island. It was one of the first really gorgeous days of the year, so we had beautiful weather to shoot with as well as an ideal coast location. 

When Matt and Noel asked if they could bring their dogs along, I didn't even hesitate to say yes. I am a huge dog person. My family's dog growing up was a Samoyed named Lily, and now I get to enjoy being around my parents' dog, a Golden Retriever named Nola. So for me if there's any chance that I can get to be around dogs, I will take it.  Especially so if I get to take beautiful photos of the dogs and their owners. So these two Cockerspaniels, Taylor and Wilbur, were great to have along for the session. Towards the end, I was even able to get some great photos of the dogs basking in the setting sunlight. 

The origin story of how I met Matt and Noel dates back to my first wedding of last year, they were guests at David and Sameer's wedding in Provincetown, Massachusetts on June 20th, 2015. I actually took a boat over to the ceremony with the two of them, and shot a few good photos of them with David and Sameer. Who could have known that almost a year later, I would be shooting their engagement photos and then their wedding in a few months. 

It was apparent right away how in love these two are, as well as how well they compliment and care for each other. I am so excited to capture their wedding day in just a little over two months!!
