Who doesn't love vintage bicycles, balloon, carousels, baby dachshunds, and a beautiful couple so happy in love?
Let me just say I'm obsessed with these two! Literally cannot wait to shoot their wedding next year! Spencer and I talked a lot about the engagement session and did a good amount of upfront planning. She showed me some photos for inspiration and told me some ideas on what she wanted...and I came up with a few great spots for them.
The Boston Common Frog Pond Carousel was the first stop, followed by the Paramount Theater, topped off with Post Office Square Park. The carousel worked out perfectly. I had scouted it out weeks prior to the date and was worried that there would be too many people around or that they would close it up (so you couldn't see the horses) after hours. But our plan to start at 6PM to catch the golden hour worked out perfectly as that is the time the carousel closed and NO ONE was on it!
Given their vintage inspiration, I recommended taking some photos in front of the Paramount Theater sign. We literally stood in the middle of the road (don't worry, my trusty husband assistant was there to warn us of oncoming traffic) and got some amazing shots.
Lastly, the HIGHLIGHT of the evening was when we met her sister who brought their fubabies to join in the shoot. And these aren't just any furbabies - DOXIE furbabies. You all know I'm obsessed with DOXIES (I have one of my own) so I was gushing with happiness. We headed over to Post Office Square Park where I was able to capture the 4 of them in perfect family bliss. Sophia and Harley were amazing. I wanted to squeeze them right up! I also brought with me a vintage bicycle (yup, bought it just for shoots like this!) and it went so well with the whole feel of their shoot. I'm super happy they let me use it!
So cheers to Spencer and Joe - this session by far is one of my favorites. You two are amazing and did such a great job! I cannot wait to celebrate with you two in less than a year from now. Please tell Sophia and Harley hello from me and George! We loved them!
