You couldn't have asked for more beautiful weather for a bridal session than on Saturday. Blue skies with fluffy white clouds, temperatures in the 70's and a nice faint breeze. It was absolutely perfect! Now, if only every day in New England was as great! The session started out in Mount Auburn Cemetery. I know, what you're thinking. A cemetery, really? But Mandy has suggested heading there and told me about the interesting architecture of some of the buildings on the property, the lush foliage and the unique winding pathways. Don't worry I stayed away from any goth looking images and was blown away by the beauty of the property. That is until...
We got kicked out. Who knew that you can't take photos in a cemetery without a permit. As we were being reprimanded (I always like to ask for forgiveness instead of permission), I noticed every tourist that walked by had a camera around their neck. Not quite sure what made us any different, but they didn't want us there.
So cheerfully mumbling under my breath ;), we drove back through Cambridge looking for a second location. We drove past this little courtyard area and I couldn't resist. One big u-turn later and we were off and shooting again. Dare I say it was even better than our original location? Too bad I have no idea whose courtyard we were in.
Either way, Mandy rocked it out. I didn't really expect any less from this beautiful blonde. I had so much fun with her and I am so blessed by her willingness to walk around in her wedding dress for the day! Check out her GORGEOUS session!
This is one of the reasons why we chose the cemetery. Check out that awesome statue of a sphinx! There was this beautiful chapel on the property as well. And this is one of my favorites from the day!
AND THIS ONE!
At this point we got kicked out and moved on into Harvard Square where we found this location :)
That's the Mandy I know and love:)
Can you believe that those are her natural eyelashes. What I would have given to be blessed with those!
Work it girl!
This just captures her beauty perfectly.Some lady stopped us to explain that we were shooting in front of the Longfellow House , which was a wedding gift from Longfellow to his future son-in-law! What a great wedding present!!
