Twinkle, Twinkle

November 8, 2012

The candles, the stars and the city lights all twinkled on this clear November night in Boston. These two high-school sweet hearts started the day at The Ames Hotel and tied the knot at the majestic State Room in Fanueil Hall this past weekend. Locals and tourists alike may recognize the Boston theme in Make Way for Ducklings card holders, Mike’s Pastry’s desserts and of course The Old State House (built in 1713, it is the oldest surviving public building in Boston).  This couple has a special place in my heart.  The first photograph I took of them was when the groom was actually proposing to her.  It was a really exiting and emotional event for me to witness.  Various photo sessions later, we find ourselves at the wedding, where the emotional height of the proposal comes full circle.

Fall, In Love

November 6, 2012

Engagement sessions in the fall totally rock and I had a lot of fun with this one.  I love the balance of getting the emotional part of a photo and the technical. I feel so satisfied when I get that perfect joyous, laughing expression… as well as the perfect background, lighting,  and pose.
