Crane Estate Engagement Session

On a overcast spring afternoon I met with Maggie and Jack at the beautiful Crane Estate for their engagement session. Maggie and Jack will be getting married next year at an estate in Ipswich and so they wanted their engagement session to reflect the the history and beachy feel of this seaside town. The Crane Estate is sprawling with tremendous views in almost every direction. It was a treat to explore the beautiful property with Maggie and Jack and admire the lovely architectural details and beauty of this place. 

Just down the street is one of my favorite places, Crane Beach. After a quick outfit change we headed to the beach for a more relaxed vibe. Snuggled up in sweaters, Maggie and Jack enjoyed the nearly empty beach and bravely dipped their toes in the chilly Atlantic waters!! The overcast skies, empty beach and these two made for a romantic ending to a beautiful session!!

An Engagement Session in Boston's North End

Kate is a city girl through and through and I just love that about her, a girl after my own heart!! When chatting about where she and Don would like to have their engagement session, it was no question : Boston would be it!! Kate lives in the heart of downtown -- complete with sweeping views of Boston Harbor and State House, a city girl's dream. Don and Kate have a deep love for this city and this December will say their vows in the shadow of Boston's skyline. 

One of Don and Kate's favorite date night activities is walking from her apartment downtown to the charming neighborhood of the North End for a slice of pizza or a cannoli. (That sounds like a perfect date night to me!) For their engagement session we did exactly that, stopping along the way to take in the city sights and enjoy a treat. 

The North End is one of my favorite places in Boston. I love the history -- one of the few remaining cobble stone streets is here -- and the charm of the numerous restaurants and bakeries that fill this neighborhood. I was pleased as punch to sneak away from the crowds and introduce Don & Kate to my fave little bakery, Bova's, tucked away off of Hanover!!

Don and Kate are sweethearts, the kind of couple who welcomes you in and makes you feel like an old friend. Kate's smile can light up a room and Don is always quick to make sure that Kate feels loved, with that famous Kate smile on her face. (Just see below!) I can't wait for their wedding later this year and I am so excited to introduce them to you today!! Enjoy their sweet North End Engagement Session!!
