Boston Engagement Photography | Sasha & Stephen's Quincy Market Engagement Session

Couple cuddles inside Quincy Market during winter engagement session

• Posted by Natalie •

I met up with Sasha & Stephen almost exactly one year before their winter Boston wedding at one of the most popular Boston landmarks: Faneuil Hall Marketplace. Inside the famous Quincy Market you can find all the famous Boston foods from New England clam chowder to lobster rolls, and after you've had your fill you can browse the tchotchkes and Boston memorabilia in the carts along the Bullmarket.  To keep warm during this winter engagement session, we alternated between the bustling indoors and the outdoor market, which features plenty of the colonial charm Boston is known for with its old buildings and cobblestone walkways.  There were still remnants of a recent winter storm, plus plenty of holiday lights to keep things festive.

Once we had our fair share of freezing and defrosting, we wandered over to Boston Harbor to check out the Marriott Long Wharf, where this couple will tie the knot in February.  You'll get to see a few previews of this venue before Sasha & Stephen's wedding is posted, since this seems to be one of the most popular Boston wedding venues. These two actually make me excited for the winter to get here—See you guys in February!

Boston Engagement Photography | Justen & Jenn's Plymouth Beach Engagement Photos

Can you believe these photos were taken in January?!  I had my second taste of Boston wedding photography at the beginning of this year when I met up with Jenn & Justen at the site of their June wedding along the water in Plymouth, Mass., which also happens to be the site of Jenn's parents' house. We had an unseasonably warm, overcast day, which was perfect for some portraits along one of the Plymouth beaches. The engagement portrait session started right at the end of high tide, so we we were able to get a few shots in before the sandbars started to disappear.

I look forward to sharing their summer beachside wedding photos with you soon!

Boston Engagement Photography | Rachael & Robert's Boston Common Engagement Session

As I've mentioned previously, my little family has relocated to just outside Boston. I grew up in the Lehigh Valley, and lived in Philly for nearly 10 years, so Boston is a whole new world to me. But I am learning to love it! I've approached 2013 as my "Boston wedding photography bootcamp." I'm working as a subcontractor for a company up here in order to gain as much experience and knowledge of the area as possible. While I know that it's hard to replicate the institutional knowledge that comes with growing up in a place, I hope that photographing dozens of weddings at many of the best Boston wedding venues will give me a solid head start.

My first Boston engagement session brought me to one of the most popular spots in the city, but with a twist. Rachael and Robert wanted to take advantage of the post-holiday decor on Boston Common and the Public Garden at night, and of course we couldn't pass up the light-wrapped trees along Comm. Ave.  It was a cold night, but we made the most of it!  I can't wait to check out their wedding venue. They'll be celebrating their October wedding on Thompson Island in Boston Harbor.
