The Best of Engagements 2017

Yesterday I kicked off the Best of 2017 series with some of my favorite portrait work of the last year and today I'm sharing my favorite engagement images!! Looking back I was reminded of how amazing each of my DZP Couples are. I love the time we get to spend with each other before the wedding and the opportunity I have to get to know these wonderful people!!

I kicked things off in January for a cold and blustery session in Boston. Throughout the year my couples headed to the beach, estates, the city, even their homes, each session tailored to their unique relationship. Just as my portrait sessions, I made the goal to incorporate film and I loved the results!! Each session was as unique as the couple I was photographing and made for a beautiful year of images -- enjoy a few of my favorites!!

Spring Engagement Session in Downtown Boston

On a beautiful spring evening I met with Jennifer and Nate on Boston's Harbor front just as the sun began to dip near the horizon. Jennifer and Nate met at Boston College and they wanted their engagement session to reflect their love for the city and the place they fell in love. The evening offered candy colored skies and sweeping views of the harbor. I loved having the opportunity to get to know Jennifer and Nate and I can't wait for their wedding this fall - enjoy a few of my favorite images!!

Wintry Boston Engagement Session in Copley Square

On an early January morning I met Alyssa & Younes in Copley Square for their engagement session. Since they live abroad, we had a small window of time when they would be visiting the states -- we crossed our fingers for a sunny day and we were met with a beautiful and seasonally *warm* weather. 

Alyssa and Younes were a delight -- it was so much fun having the opportunity to get to know them both and witness the beautiful friendship they share together. Alyssa and Younes will wed in July in the Copley Square area so we had a wonderful time exploring this quintessential part of town. Enjoy some of my favorites from their lovely Copley Square engagement session!!

Copley Square and South End Buttery Engagement Session

We are in a never ending winter here in the Northeast, or at least that's what it feels like. Yesterday we were slammed AGAIN with a batch of snow making our total count, well, A LOT. But despite my hatred for the cold and those pesky white flakes, I have to admit that there is a beautiful charm to Boston after some freshly fallen snow. We lucked out with just that, an abundance of winter charm in the city for Emma and Paul's engagement session this past weekend. Following another storm, the city was dusted in a blanket of white.  

Emma and Paul live and work in and around the city. It's also where Paul proposed (in a candle lit suite at the Fairmont!) Fittingly, Emma wanted to revisit some of the spots around town that are meaningful to the two of them. We spent the afternoon exploring the city while Paul and Emma did their best to stay warm with lots of snuggles and laughs! 

We started our time together at the Boston Public Library, one of Emma's favorite spots in the city. We meandered around Copley Square and tried our best to stay warm!! It was COLD on Sunday, so we popped in to one of Emma and Paul's favorite spots, the South End Buttery for some coffee and treats.

Emma and Paul, I had a great afternoon with you as we wandered the streets of Boston visiting some of your favorite places. I can't wait to celebrate with you this spring -- Enjoy your images!
