With just weeks to spare we snuck this lil’ engagement shoot in just before their wedding next week. They had a plan from dress (we changed into saree and kurta at the Sevens Pub on Charles Street), to the places on Boston Common that meant something to them. Late afternoon light did the rest and some impromptu first-dance-practicin’ added a bit of the unexpected. If this is how their Trinity Church ceremony and Colonade reception next weekend will go down it will be quite a day–and they only have to change outfits 3 times that day.
Lots of fun with Sondra and Erik and their little doggie strolling about Beacon Hill and then stepping out in the North End. As a Boston wedding photographer I always encourages my couples to bring props (umbrella’s come in handy) and a quick change of clothes ’cause you never know what Mother Nature will do. S &E took it to a whole ‘nother level having a 4-year-old Yorkshire Terrier complete with hair-do and bling. I can’t wait to see if lil’Oliver will be the official ring bearer for their November wedding. Time will tell–until then we have their Summer engagement shoot–“And her little dog, too.”
Julia and Scott live in Chicago and that is where they had their “big” wedding celebration but before that, Julia wanted to do something, somewhere, so that her grandmother could see her wedding–enter family and some close friends to the historic Hampshire House in Boston for a cozy lil’ ceremony just for her. It couldn’t have been sweeter or more intimate. We spent some time just Julia and Scott and I + my second cameraman, USK, wandering the bricked sidewalks and cobblestones of Beacon Hill. Then we joined the party for some formals in The Public Garden before the ceremony and reception in the library room upstairs–this was definitely a place where everybody knows your name.
