A Harvard Yard Engagement Session
Do you want to hear one of the most creative and adorable engagement proposals? I know you do!! I think Christina out did herself with this one. First, Christina proposed. Not being one to be defined by gender roles AND coupled with the fact that she just KNEW Matt was the one, she decided she would pop the question. (Matt felt the same and was going to propose but Christina beat him to the question;)).
Having both attended Harvard University the two spend a lot of time together in and around the campus. Matt studied biology and so Christina devised a plan that would incorporate the lab he spends most of his days in. After managing to convince Matt they NEEDED to head to the lab Christina created a diversion and slipped something under a microscope. When Matt returned she egged him on to look through the scope. There he discovered a laser engraved piece of glass that read "Will you marry me?". Of course Matt said yes and they spent the rest of the evening celebrating their new future together!!
I kind of feel like that needs to be incorporated into a Big Bang Theory episode or something!! How cute AND romantic!! Appropriately for their engagement session we explored the campus of Harvard University since it has such an incredible amount of meaning to the couple. Christina picked out some of her favorites spots and through the afternoon of gorgeous light I photographed this amazing couple!!
They'll be wed next spring and are busily planning and organizing all the details of the big day. But for one beautiful fall afternoon they got to escape from the work, school and wedding responsibilities and just focus one another. I simply adore these two and I am so excited to share their engagement session with you.
Meet Matt and Christina!We started the session on the steps of Widener Library in Harvard Yard. Does any one else feel like Elle Woods should be appearing at any moment?! :-PHow cute are they?!Matt and Christina needed little warming up, they simply just enjoyed spending time together in front of the camera!A favorite for sure!I couldn't get enough of that gorgeous fall light!!Christina introduced me to the Loeb House and I simply fell in love!! It was a gorgeous little corner of the University!!Lovely!!Another favorite for sure, somewhere need underclassmen housing!! Who wouldn't love living in one of those beautiful buildings?I love the way they love.After a quick outfit change we headed over to Memorial Hall a beautiful building on the other side of Harvard's campus.Though the sun now was direct and harsh I used it to our advantage and loved the result!!Of course I have to incorporate the first signs of fall!!Following our stop at the Divinity School, Christina introduced me to another Harvard hidden gem, the The Minda de GunzburgCenter for European Studies.I simply could not get enough of Christina's beautiful ring.Another favorite for sure!!We ended the session at Churn, because like me, Christina is an ice cream afficionado. And really is there anyway better than to end an afternoon with the one you love than with ice cream? Nope.
