I love when I’m contracted by a Boston couple to photograph their wedding, especially when I get to meet them on their “home field” to do their engagement portrait session (an excuse to visit my family in Boston and write off the mileage ).
Lora and David live in Allston and one of the places they love to visit is the Minute Man National Historic Park. We first met at a coffee shop in Concord and spent some time getting to know one another. I learned that they met in a “Movement for Theater” class at Skidmore College and they describe themselves now as the “annoying cute couple” at a Boston area Biotek company (how they got from the theater world to the biotek world is a longer story).
We had a great afternoon exploring the park, crossing the Old North Bridge (historic site in the Battle of Concord, the first day of battle in the American War of Independence) and seeing the Minute Man statue, erected by Daniel Chester French in 1875 (Yup, this is part portrait session blog post and part American history lesson!)
It was so easy making sweet, loving pictures of this couple. Lora and David aren’t shy about touching and showing each other mutual affection. It was fun watching them together, seeing how they look at each other, hold each other, breathe in each other’s air. They play nice!
It’s only about a month or so until I’ll see Lora and David again to shoot their wedding at the gorgeous Basin Harbor club and I hope this slideshow gets the buzz started for them and their family. Congratulations, you two and enjoy these last few weeks before you share your wedding vows and celebrate your union!
